Album of the year
I know we still have 2 months left, but Im going to go ahead with mine: The Muse by The Wood Brothers. Produced by Buddy Miller. Just a superb disc from start to finish. If your not familiar with these guys you're missing out. Chris Wood is the Wood in Medeski Martin & Wood, and brother Oliver the frontman from the late ,great, King Johnson. Rootsy, bluesy,rockin', gospeley, with harmonies to die for,exceptional muscianship,and evocative lyrics. Well recorded too. They put on an awesome live show to boot.
