Lost in America

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - JT Griffith
It is always a shame when a band releases one major label album and then is never heard from again. Such is the story of Pittsburgh, PA's The Gathering Field. Their 1996 debut Lost in America came and went unnoticed. Sadly, it was prophetically titled. The band actually got lost in the wake of a more successful rock band also on Atlantic Records, matchbox20. The The Gathering Field was musically similar to Train and vocally close to Ireland's The Devlins.

It is always a shame when a band releases one major label album and then is never heard from again. Such is the story of Pittsburgh, PA's The Gathering Field. Their 1996 debut Lost in America came and went unnoticed. Sadly, it was prophetically titled. The band actually got lost in the wake of a more successful rock band also on Atlantic Records, matchbox20. The The Gathering Field was musically similar to Train and vocally close to Ireland's The Devlins. The real strength of the band was especially evident on Lost in America; smart, soulful lyrics surrounded by a heartbreaking, Americana sound. The title track was equal parts Raymond Carver and Jack Kerouac. The Gathering Field had wonderful melodies and harmonies. Fans of Train's "Drops of Jupiter" will especially like "Lost in America." "Rhapsody in Blue" should have been on thousands of mix tapes made by high school girls in the midwest, with its world-wise take on sentimentality. Lost in America had a laid-back, traditonal American rock sound similar to Allgood but less bluesy, The Samples but more diverse, and Counting Crows but less tortured. It was, perhaps, the most profoundly emotional release of 1996. If you like jam bands, melodic rock and roll, and Americana, this album will not disappoint. It is the kind of find that will make you question who runs the record labels and radio stations.

    Get to know this band!!!!!!

    Bill Deasy and Dave Brown are two of the finest musicians that nobody has heard about...outside of Pittsburgh. All the songs are fantasic. Deasy's eloquent lyrics are slightly overshadowed by the truly gifted guitar work of Brown. Best songs on this CD are the title track, Bound to Be, and Middle Road. However, nothing surpasses Midnight Ghost which is just about the finest song I have EVER heard. Again, I implore you to listen and then wonder how you ever lived without.
