Album Review

This set, the Lone Bellow's debut album, is a gem. Full of haunting, passionate songs that breathe with country soul and a kind of autumnal grace, most of them written by lead singer and guitarist Zach Williams, the album has the feeling of a complete story, each track supporting the whole. Williams wrote some of these songs while waiting and hoping for his wife's recovery from a serious accident that left her paralyzed from the neck down (she eventually recovered), and perhaps that's why they have such emotional depth and range — they were written out of need rather than written as stepping stones on a career trajectory. But that doesn't mean these sorts of songs don't have commercial appeal. They do, and with the rest of the band working and writing these kinds of redemptive songs on the same page with Williams, it makes for an impressive early catalog. Although the Lone Bellow claim to play "Brooklyn country music" (and there is a kind of contemporary country tone to their sound), there's a lot of other stuff mixed in there, from blues, gospel, folk, and slow-burning soul to indie-style rock, and there's a pop sheen too, made quietly powerful by being unassuming about it. Songs like "Tree to Grow," "Two Sides of Lonely," "You Can Be All Kinds of Emotional," and "The One You Should've Let Go," to name just a few, defy easy labels. They sound like they've always been there, and it's easy to imagine them being played on any genre station on the radio dial. This is a solid debut, made by a band that arrives fully formed and has a great future.

Customer Reviews

Folky and Amazing

I described this band to my friends as "Mumford and Sons with a girl," but really the Lone Bellows is so much more than that. The vocal blends and harmonies are intricate, and haunting, and are accented so well by the melodies.
I was hooked from the very first song - Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold, as it is one of the more upbeat tunes on the album.

I sometimes regret my iTunes impulse buys, but definitely not this one. These guys are going to receive some heavy rotation pretty quickly - might as well add it to your collection now!

WOW

First review I have ever written, this album makes the hair on your neck stand-up, unbelievable vocals

Awesome

I heard then when "Bleeding Out" was the single of the week. Now I'm fan, great album
