Folk and pop melodies drive this magnificent album from start to finish. The chorus to "Sun Gone Down" holds up against any great hook, from Nick Lowe to Tommy James. Tantilla is pure Southern Gothic, as subjects from religion to the Civil War are addressed and set to a roots music beat that is handy, tight pop/rock at the core. After so many years, this record has worn quite well.
