The Broken Side of Time

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The five members of Alberta Cross, representing the disparate rock locales of Brooklyn, NY, London, England, and Stockholm Sweden, share an innate love of all things Americana on their 2010 sophomore effort Broken Side of Time. Like Crazy Horse fronted by Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue, the band blazes a trail through the backwoods with the raw fury of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and the pensive, worldweary pen of Gram Parsons.
