This is quite possibly some of Mr. Smith's finest work yet! The lyrics are relevant, the melodies superb, and the mood very honest. I have many of his albums, but can't stop singing these songs - well worth every penny - if you ever get the chance to go see Darden live, take it!


Great new record with great arrangements. Love the trombone on some of songs....


Darden Smith is one of the best U.S. song writers in the past 20 years years who takes simple and complex issues in our lives today and writes and put's together music to fit the some perfectly. You can hear this on Angel Flight, Midnight Train to London, etc. Marathon I just got and his song writing remains very strong with a bit more piano than in past albums. You must go and see him perform live because you really feel each and every song and it's human feelings. Sierra Diablo is a great song with great visualization. Great Job Darden!
