iTunes Review

The Sadies are a powerful Canadian quartet, led by brothers Travis and Dallas Good, who take the historical power of country music and throw it into the garage for some spiking up. “Another Day Again” is a powerful wail from the reverb canyons of the best psychedelic garage-rock imaginable. Forget to check the copyright date and you could be misled by decades. “Tell Her What I Said” has a crucial country doom to its loose, Stones-like harmonies. Producer Gary Louris of the Jayhawks produced their previous album, 2007’s New Seasons, and this is an even denser, grittier effort, reminiscent of the dark, claustrophobic tones of Exile On Main St.. You can practically hear the sweat pouring from the walls on the spooky murk of ‘The Quiet One,” the Bakersfield sun of “Postcards” and “Idle Tomorrows,” the rustic hustle of “Choosing To Fly” and the muddy shimmer of “Whispering Circles.” It’s a sound that reaches inside itself to come out the other side.

Customer Reviews

A very good album....

If you are a fan of roots rock (or just good rock, for that matter), you should check this disc out. There's a nice progression to their sound since the last album, and the harmonies are as tight as ever. Excellent song writing throughout as well. There are quite a few highlights but some of my favorites are Another Year Again and Cut Corners, but the whole album is enjoyable. Again, this is a recommended disc.

i love it!

The second coming of the Jayhawks!

Like a fine wine -- The Sadies only get better with age

wouldn't call them the second coming of the Jayhawks, but I know Gary Louris has been producing the last couple of Sadies albums.

"Darker Circles" continues right where "New Seasons" left off... the Sadies' song writing continues to shine, and they have really developed their own sound after the early years of producing spaghetti western/surf style country-rock.

'Tell her what I said' and 'Another year again' are the two songs that jump out after the first listen. if you are introducing new people to the Sadies, play these off of this album for them first.

Good job guys, another excellent record!!
