The Great Divide's second album, Break in the Storm, was their breakthrough effort, the record that demonstrated they could blend country traditions with contemporary energy and wit. Led by vocalist/guitarist Mike McClure, the band has a tough, gritty edge that brings out the best in McClure's honky tonk and Bakersfield updates. There are a couple of moments that don't quite ring true on the album, but on the whole, Break in the Storm is Americana and alt-country at its best.
