Customer Reviews

Great Chill Album

Let's face it, we live in a world with a lot of crappy music.....Good Old War does not fall into that catagory. This is a Solid Album, and creative compositions that take me back to a better time. BUY THIS ALBUM!

Solid record with a throwback quality

These guys remind me of a modern day 60's band. Referencing bands like the Mamas & The Papas and Bob Dylan without being derivative. Good solid songwriting and refreshing outlook on life in general.

One of The Best of 2008

From the ashes of Days Away and Unlikely Cowboy comes the band Good Old War. At first this sounds like terrible news seeing how Days Away and Unlikely Cowboy were both great acts. But actually it is the exact opposite. Formed of Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold (Days Away) and Dan Schwartz(Unlikely Cowboy) Good Old War makes some of the catchiest folk love tunes you will hear. From start to finish this album is 100% solid. If harmonies and melodies are your kind of thing then I suggest you pick this up. It's not everyday that you can find three beings that are able to harmonize in perfect unison like Good Old War. From tracks like "Weak Man" which features Anthony Green(Circa Survive)and Dave Davison(Maps and Atlases) to "Stay By My Side" which features the Wadsworth Sisters, there is something for everyone. Tracking in at thirty six minutes long "The Only Way To Be Alone" has moments that will stick with everyone for a long time. I'm not sure I have bonded with a record like this for some time. For fans of bands like Fleet Foxes I recommend you pick this up now.

A group formed in the off time (that is to say, hiatus) of the band Days Away, Good Old War -- named with a selection of "parts" of its members' names -- was launched by Days Away's Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold. Joined by Daniel Schwartz of Unlikely Cowboy, Good Old War began recording its debut album in Los Angeles in 2008, with hopes of a release on Sargent House later in the fall. That same year, Good Old War acted as the backing band (both live and in the studio) for Anthony Greene's album Avalon,...
