So what's really good? Two Dave Alvin tracks are a treat, although he repeats a version of Kelly Hogan's poignant "Green Green Grass of Home." Langford and Sally Timms' unique reading of Tom Jones' classic "Delilah" turns it into a tavern sing-along.
What's really bad? Even Diane Izzo's pleasant voice can't save "Strange Fruit," and a sloppy take by Alejandro Escovedo, Langford and Alvin spoils "Bad News." Mark Eitzel's "God's Eternal Love" skewers the religious right for their incongruent belief systems, then, with thinly veiled wishes of tragedy and loss, sinks to their level.
In short, buy this typical Bloodshot package at your own risk.
