iTunes Review

From the opening acoustic guitars and finely tuned harmonies of "Over and Over," Bucks County, Pa.-based Good Old War reminds listeners that well-executed folk-rock/alt-country can still inspire great songs. The band's third album, 2012's Come Back as Rain, further refines its delicate formula, casting the group as a Crosby, Stills & Nash for a new generation. While the songs are rooted in rustic instrumentation, the melodies caress the contours of vintage pop. "Calling Me Names" hints at The Beach Boys in its looming harmonies, while "Better Weather" evokes the summer breezes of the Boys and Hawaii's Jack Johnson. The band isn't all sun and fun, though. "Present for the End of the World," "Not Quite Happiness," and "It Hurts Every Time" show gray clouds forming, yet with an Americana-pop approach that hasn't been as successfully mined since the days of The BoDeans. The songs are campfire-ready, though it might be a challenge for aspiring singers to nail the harmonies: proof that these young men are old pros.

Customer Reviews

Great Old War (not to take away from GOODwin)

Let me start of by saying if you haven't listened to the first two albums go check those out immediately, EPIC.
Let me now continue to reviewing this album. WOW. Good Old War have pushed their music to new heights with all forms of their music…Guitar, Keyboard, Drums, and obviously vocals. The harmonies still keep my hair stand up in the back of my neck while the the instruments keep my heart pumping. The three folks of GOW definitely have more of a country sound than the previous records but they stay true to the folk genre. "Amazing Eyes"…enough said….absolutely amazing song and the lyrical change up keep it spinning.

I can go on forever but I'm probably just slowing you down from buying the album, so don't wait, just buy.

REAL MUSIC

That's some dream! Thank you to the guys from GOW! This is what real music sounds like!

that moment of elation

seriously, the only good thing about staying up late to finish a project is the fact that i get good old war all the sooner. this has been my most anticipated album of the year. it's beautiful.
