Led by brothers Dallas and Travis Good, the Sadies find firmer ground on "Within a Stone," an affectingly mournful country ballad. They render the chugging railroad rhythm of Atlanta songwriter Grace Braun's "Tiger Tiger" with the ferocity of a caged jungle cat, and their "A#1" is a mystical instrumental tribute to the boxcar-hopping sage whom Lee Marvin portrayed in the movie Emperor of the North.
But the Goods most effectively deliver the goods on the album's title tune, a haunting, unforgettable fable about the burning emptiness of someone who exchanged his mortal soul for a gilded castle. Their voices have never been stronger than when delivering the lyric, "All that's left is a palace of gold," as if it were a condemnation to eternal hellfire.

All 80s movies want you...
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
