Absolutely fantastic

Idk what you guys are talking about. Everything written by Carbon Leaf is the best kind of original. I love this album.

I love the album

Yes, Carbon Leaf produced this album on their own. They want to bring more music to their fans and the fans are grateful. This is an album of songs inspired while the band has been West of the Mississippi. It is an evolution for the band, it is music they have wanted to record and I am guessing haven't been allowed by an label. Several of the songs were played LIVE by the band around 2005 and to finally have them avaialble is refreshing.

One highlight of the album is Midwestern Girl, it is catchy and fun. Native America is a good solid song and the band has been performing it live on the last tour.

This isn't a best first listen for a new fan but most fans will appreciate the effort and style of this album.


Another solid album from Carbon Leaf. This one is very laid back... love the vocals and guitar work.

Guitarist Terry Clark, vocalist Barry Privett, bassist Jordan Medas, guitarist Carter Gravatt, and drummer Scott Milstead built up a considerable following and were soon releasing albums through their own label. Meander appeared in 1996, with Shadows in the Banquet Hall and Ether-Electrified Porch Music following in quick succession....
