Home Fires is a fine debut from the Dead Ringer Band. As with most debuts, there are a couple of unassured moments, and the sound of the record is just a little too clean, but the Dead Ringer Band makes up for that with their impassioned performances and economical country-rock arrangemments. And when it all works, such as on "Honky Tonk from Hell," "I'd Go Home if I Had One" and their cover of "Sin City," the results are quite impressive.
