The Great Book Of John – S/T

Alabama native Taylor Shaw is the man behind The Great Book Of John and on his band’s new self-titled album they come off sounding as Radiohead meets Travis by way of Whiskeytown. This leads to some pretty solid songs such as the two-punch opening combo of “Robin Hood” and “Brown Frown”. They unfortunately lose a little traction with “Wise Blood” and “Ashes Over Manhattan”, two downers that work as good as any pill, but quickly redeem themselves with the slightly menacing “Black Heart” and then end on two more high notes with “On And On” and “Simple Things”. Well-executed Americana that won’t look bad in anybody’s collection! Hideous artwork though…
Score: 7 out of 10
