Album Review

Three years after the debut EP, Miracle Legion had finessed their very R.E.M.-like sound into something a little more their own. "All for the Best" and "Everyone in Heaven" (with vocals by Kevin Hunter of Wire Train) are both literally remakes of the engaging "The Backyard," the band's first jangly signature song. Overall, this record is darker in tone, and save for Neal Ray's studied version of the Peter Buck guitar style, there are few traces of the Athens sound here.

Just get it

This album, or anything else that Mark Mulcahy had something to do with is worth your time and money. You really can't find better music than this.

The last honest band

Without a doubt one of the greatest rock records ever recorded. I would wholly support a Consitutional amendment criminalizing people who don't like this album, and while I don't know him personally, I have it on good authority that Mark Mulcahy is the single greatest human being to ever have lived.

Sweet relief... fault of Mark and the rest of the band as to why this record did not come out sooner....hopefully the rest of the music can make it's way to ITunes so the rest of us can discover how great this band was and songs really are.

But the band -- Ray Neal (guitar), Jeff Wiederschall (drums), and Steven West (bass), and later just Mulcahy and Neal -- ultimately became unique in its own right. The Backyard EP, released by the small Incas Records...
