Editors’ Notes

The Greenhornes’ last full-length release, Dual Mono, had a tough, ‘60s garage-rock focus, with plenty of grit on both the guitars and Craig Fox’s vocals. An EP in 2005, East Grand Blues, showed the Cincinnati group moving toward a more soul-inflected sound, which worked beautifully on songs like the swaggering “At Night” and sensitive rocker-boy ballad, “Shelter of Your Arms.” On ****, the band dabbles in a little bit of everything: opening tracks “Saying Goodbye” and “Underestimator” roar to life like a couple of early Who outtakes, while “Better Off Without It,” all pulsing vintage organs and warm wood blocks, takes us back to early Van Morrison and AM radio. “Go Tell Henry” and “Cave Drawings” blend budding psychedelia and the blues, and “Get Me Out of Here” hints at a lighter Merseybeat style.  “Need Your Love” is a slamming tsunami of freakbeat (the Creation, the Sorrows, the Primitives) and college radio has no reason not to play “Song 13” in between vintage Superchunk and a classic slice of Big Star. We give this collection a solid **** (four stars).

Customer Reviews

What happened to the SOUL?

I really do love these guys and have had some good times to their music, however I am pretty let down by this album. The reason I really fell in love with this band is because of their garage soulful sound. Now it's just cleaned up generic rock, and it just sounds like too many other bands way before their time. I'm hoping that signing with Third Man and Jack White having influence had nothing to do with it. I understand that bands need to grow and experiment but this just wasn't all that great. You want a good album? Check out "Gun For You" by The Greenhornes best album by them!

how could i give this any other star rating?

the greenhornes blow minds with this disc of tron. "go tell henry" is a dark, black rimmed classic. "saying goodbye"'s drum fills need to be elected governor of the state of in your face. while craig fox's vocals are blue eyed soulful and down to the nitty
gritty. if you haven't heard of these bad boys from the midwest, you need to ask somebody, cause i'm busy listening to this
mother. four stars? at least.

They should have called this 5 stars

This is the rock record of the year! Saying Goodbye is amazing, the vocals are awesome. After seeing them at ATP this year I knew this would be a winner!

Biography

Formed: Cincinnati, OH

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Cincinnati, OH's the Greenhornes earned a devoted following during the garage rock boom of the 2000s, but while the band was clearly influenced by classic blues-based acts of the '60s (the Yardbirds, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks) and first-era garage rock (the Sonics), their instrumental skill and songwriting chops put them well ahead of most of their peers. The Greenhornes were formed in 1996 by Craig Fox (guitar, lead vocals), Brian Olive (guitar), Jared McKinney (keyboards), Jack Lawrence (bass)...
