Album Review

Kicking off with the rousing abandon of "She's a Wild One" (with which Faith Hill would have a hit just a year later), Evangeline's French Quarter Moon finds the combo mixing some straight-ahead country into their tried and true mixture of ballads and the bayou. Two lower key numbers transpire before the Cajun sound is even uncorked.

She tears into the bluesy "Delta Run," only to let her voice crack plaintively on the velvet gift shop fantasy "Elvis of the Night." Existing Evangeline fans are sure to be happy with the new material, while the group's embrace of a more conventional country sound (albeit with their trademark, bayou-bred singing and playing) should help it gain even more of a following.
