Review of Old 97’s – Most Messed Up (ATO/Universal Music Canada)

Old 97'sFor the last 21 years, the Old 97’s have been one of the best Americana bands going. With their newest album Most Messed Up, they have little difficulty holding onto this designation. They strike somewhat of a defiant tone with the excellent album opener “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive”, a song that serves as a testament to the ups and downs of the music biz. From there, the group delivers a raucous set of songs including “Give It Time”, “Nashville” and “Intervention”, all of which will leave you wanting more.
