Album Review

Last Train Home kicks off Last Good Kiss with the title cut, a hard luck tale of love gone stale. The band — lead vocalist Eric Brace, bassist Jim Gray, drummer Martin Lynds, guitarist Steve Wedemeyer, keyboardist Jen Gunderman, and trumpeter Kevin Cordt — rocks hard here with a guitar sound reminiscent of the Outlaws. The midtempo "Flood" sustains the somber mood with a soulful chorus and lots of heavy percussion to underline the brooding pace. Brace sings well, delivering these sad songs with easy confidence, and is equally comfortable with both harder country-rock and ballads. The arrangements ease a bit on "Anywhere But Here," a downbeat ballad propped up by gentle keyboards and plenty of acoustic guitar. In other places, the arrangements are bolstered by accordion ("Can't Come Undone") and trumpet ("Kissing Booth"). Most of the songs on Last Good Kiss are fairly long (near four minutes or longer), but Last Train Home plays well as a unit, holding the tension together even when songs like "May" stretch out to seven minutes. The songwriter runs deep on Last Good Kiss, with enjoyable (if downbeat) fare like "Marking Time" showing up on the next to last track. Well-written and performed, Last Good Kiss is a fine display of Last Train Home's talents. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Customer Reviews

Getting even better

One of the great under-rated (unheard of?) alt-country/american a bands of the last few years, this band has a superb songwriter in Eric Brace, who also happens to have a great voice. He writes heavy rock songs, charming slow songs of lost love and catchy latin-ish toons. This album is generally heavier than their earlier ones, which might appeal to a wider audience, with some great roots rock guitar (with fuzz) from Steve Wedemeyer and some appealing piano driving some of the songs along. But in the end it is the songs that carry the day - you'll be humming many of them all day. Do yourself a favour, buy this album and guaranteed you will be looking for their back catalogue.
