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.

This is Something To Be Heard!

Wow! This is a very well writen album. Not to mention it's very fun to listen to. It just gives you this happy-go-lucky kind of a mood that leaves you wanting to hear more. Couldn't be more pleased with Good Old War!

These guys are awesome!

I saw them last night in Spokane and they blew my mind!!

Great New Album

I've been listening to their music for a few years now, and I can say I have never been disappointed by one of their songs. Each one has a unique personality that lets the listener connect to them. The vocals are incredibly powerful, the acoustics ring out beautifully, and every note is placed perfectly. They have a lot of potential and I sincerely hope they will be around for a long time.
