AllMusic Review by

With a power chord and a plaintive croon, this fine disc is off and running. From the barroom harmonies of "Dolly" to a riveting interplay of lounge smoothness and punk rage on "Horrorshow," the Blacks prove to be one of the more interesting on the "insurgent country" scene. Leaders and multi-instrumentalists Gina and Danny Black create a fine dynamic, backed by Nora O'Connor on guitar and organ and James Emmenegger on drums. The blissfully sinful cover of Bill Monroe's "I'll Meet You in Church Sunday Morning" is perfect for a beer-stained singalong.
