2001, March / John Wahl & the Amadans
How can something so beautiful come from those depths of pain? I wish it were something in the water, but let it be said that this record is REAL music for REAL people who feel REAL things. Check your attitude at the door, you're in for the night with this one. It almost makes one happy to be sad. Sheer beauty, no matter how acidic or cutting the emotions might be. "Tennessee Waltz" is especially engaging. Brilliant.
