EDITORS’ NOTES

The Civil Wars' second album is run through with riveting tension, enigmatic beauty, and smoldering emotion. Produced by Charlie Peacock (who gave the duo’s 2011 debut, Barton Hallow, a sublime, minimalist touch), the album is filled with dusky, minor-key folk narratives like “Dust to Dust,” “Same Old Same Old,” and “Eavesdrop.”

Finally!!!

The new single is fantastic. I am a HUGE fan and was extremely excited to hear about the upcoming album. This new single is exactly what you would expect from these two. Pure magic.

Thank The Good Lord For Music Like This...

When I found out these two were releasing a new album I literally started dancing around my house and annouced my pure joy to everyone I knew (thru speech and facebook.) No words can describe how happy I am that music like this exsists. If it didn't... Well! I just wouldn't know what to do with myself!

Disappointed

This seems like a Joy Williams solo record, not a record with John Paul White. What made The Civil Wars so great was the superb and excellent harmony and energy between the two. It was magical...almost beyond belief. Although there's some great music on this CD, the magic between them is missing. Barton Hollow was a singular masterpiece. Perhaps, we just need to be pleased that such a CD exists at all, and not be greedy expecting that sort of "once in a lifetime" effort be duplicated. Seems obvious from this release that Joy wants to go out on her own. I have no doubt both of them will have success as solo artists, but I'm very disappointed in this new release. I streamed it to get a taste...I won't be purchasing it.
