iTunes Review

The Devil Makes Three are one of the tighter Americana trios around. Playing acoustic guitar, banjo, and upright bass, they blend bluegrass, old-time country, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and serve it up with punk attitude and flair. Wry and whip-smart lyrics, rich harmonies, and a steady rhythmic drive propel I'm a Stranger Here. Producer Buddy Miller deftly captures this unhinged energy on the stompers "Hallelu," "Dead Body Moving," and "Spinning Like a Top" while adding new dimensions to the group's sound with occasional use of fiddle and percussion. Elsewhere, special guests The Preservation Hall Jazz Band add clarinet and brass to the spectacular ragtime workout "40 Days." But the band shines at slower tempos as well, as evidenced on the twangy ballad "A Moment's Rest" and the closing waltz "Goodbye Old Friend." This is a crack band with a distinct style, and their fourth release captures their musical chops and songwriting finesse in equal measure.

Customer Reviews

Exceptional

Wow. This is a great album. The lack of drums is a complete nonissue what with this band's amazing guitars. Devil Makes Three captures the spirit of bluegrass in a way that is all their own. Favorite Tracks: The Plank, Old Number Seven, Ten Feet Tall.

If you're a blues fan, then you will be dumbstruck by how good these guys are

Great Album

I find myself coming back to this album a lot more than I would have expected. It is great music. Blues/Bluegrass/Ragtime all together. My favorite tracks are: Under the Piano, The Plank, and Ten Feet Tall.

As a drummerless acoustic trio consisting of two guitarists and a string bassist, the Devil Makes Three are not your normal alt-country band. While deeply rooted in the blues and country music, they enthusiastically incorporate elements of bluegrass, ragtime, and jug band traditions as well. The group also makes no bones about its punk rock influences, and despite the lack of a drummer, it always plays with the needs of dancers in mind. Although the Devil Makes Three consist entirely of New Englanders...
