The Lion the Beast the Beat (Deluxe Edition)

Vermont-based singer/songwriter Grace Potter developed a following on the jam-band circuit. However, with each new album she's found a variety of methods to spotlight her powerful vocal abilities. Producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tedeschi Trucks Band) creates an interesting mix of settings, and Potter takes full advantage of them, reveling in the chance to be a hard rock singer, a pop singer, a country artist, and many variations in between. Unlike many artists who find one sound and stick with it for fear of being called inconsistent, Potter proudly tries on styles with abundant enthusiasm. Her talents are worth it. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach cowrote the album's first single, "Never Go Back," with the band and cowrote and produced "Loneliest Soul," so it sounds like The Nocturnals playing around at being The Black Keys. "Stars" showcases Potter pulling off a power ballad. "Parachute Heart" evokes a pop feel worthy of Neko Case. "The Divide" percolates until the guitars and strings send the track over the top. The album's deluxe edition includes four bonus cuts, including duets with Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson.
GPN brings it with the BEAST. Thank you for making music that doesn't fit in a tidy box. Love you all live and thrilled to have all this new stuff with us now, day to day. Turntable Rocks, One Heart and Stars are so great and title track will surely be s stadium anthem for sports soon. Enjoy it Grace, Benny, Matt, Scott and even the new guy :)
I just had a chance to see GPN live and they were fantastic. They almost sound better live! This new album is some of the best work they have ever done.
Some stand out tracks would be The Lion Beast Beat, The Divide, and Timekeeper.
Wow...what else can you say about these guys. Grace has the voice of an angel laced with a bluesy tone and the band can play like no one's business. I've been in love with these guys for a while now and this album doesn't disappoint.
