The Parson Red Heads YEARLING album review


THE PARSON RED HEADSYEARLING– Arena Rock Recording Company
Review by Brad Bugos

The Beautiful Harmonies are what you hear first when you pop this CD into the player. Just wonderful, beautiful harmonies. It’s hard to ignore them, especially when the first song “Burning up the Sky” kicks in with such lush auditory goodness. This band told me in an interview that it took them awhile to create these harmonies as they sound now. Thank you for spending that time working on it, because you guys really perfected it.

Want to know what the second thing is when I listen to this album? That this is a really good rock band. I mean rock band, as in there are some really good guitar powered rock songs on here. No, they won’t be confused with Incubus, or Van Halen, but they do make a fine rock song, something that really fits into the overall feel of the album. I get the feeling that they could just write these Jayhawk type rock/country tunes all day long but they don’t they flex some nice rock muscle.

Let’s look at song number Six, “SEVEN YEARS AGO”. It starts out with a nice acoustic guitar, some nice slide guitar, it has a nice warm country rock ballad sound. Evan Way has a nice plaintive, longing voice. It fits the song, but the nice thing about Evan’s singing is that this isn’t the only place the voice comes from, there area all kinds of stations on this radio. Then the harmonies kick in, just perfectly laid out and complimenting to Evan’s lead vocals. It’s a nice song that seems to be about being lost and moving along, trying to find that one thing that makes you stop and really enjoy life. What nice harmonies though, good lord, I’m not kidding it’s like treating my ears to the highest quality sounds the earth has to offer.

When the next song kicks in, with their touch harder guitar and still fine harmonies, if you don’t enjoy this group then I guess we’ll just have to agree to meet on the streets somewhere so that I can open hand slap you upside your head. What is not to like about this band? Well written songs, really good lead singer, fine musicians and great harmonies.

I’m going to have to start forcing people to listen to this CD, otherwise I might go completely off the deep end next time some crappy band (like NICKLEBACK) sells one album and this band is not a household name.

I like this band and so should you, we can’t be friends unless you do. You can’t watch another episode of HOUSE WIVES OF TILFORD COUNTY without buying this album first, it will help clean all the crap out of your brain.
