Album Review

Produced by Eric Ambel, the second album from Bellingham, Washington's Kasey Anderson conjures up images of alternative country renegade Steve Earle. It may be because Ambel has worked with Earle, but few will deny that Anderson's raspy, desolate delivery on "This Old Town" — the lead track on Dead Roses — echoes the man behind Transcendental Blues. The forum that builds this ode to regret is where Anderson is most effective, as he serves up evocative, ragged ballads like "Hold on Caroline" and the tear-jerking orphan ode "Raining in Hattiesburg." Tougher moments, like the heartfelt Son Volt-like "Hard on Me" and the whiskeyed-up Rolling Stones feel of "5th Avenue Queen" are fun but less impressionable. In a brave move, Anderson delivers "Weary Heart," a pensive and soulful nugget where he confesses "[There] ain't no difference between fallin' in love and fallin' apart." It winds up being his warmest moment. ~ John D. Luerssen, Rovi
