iTunes Review

After diverging from his usual course for 2005's anomalous Delirium Tremelos and its melodic balladry, Ray Wylie Hubbard made a sharp turn in the other direction for the following year's Snake Farm. It's no accident that it turned out to be one of his most attention-getting albums of the era. By stripping his blend of windblown blues and outlaw country down to the bare essentials and giving his worldly wise Confucius-meets-Kerouac lyrical approach plenty of room to breathe, he turned out some of the best songs of his career, from the transcendent blues of "Rabbit" to the deliciously sleazy title track.

Customer Reviews

Tremendous Album

I've had this cd since the day it came out (3 years ago now) and it is still, without a doubt, my favorite cd that I own. It is the epitimy of cool from the first second to the last second. I have others of Hubbard's cds, and they are all pretty good, but if you are going to own one, this is definitely the one to get.

One of the Decade

This album is a masterpiece, easily one of the ten best albums of the decade and one of the top 100 rock/blues records of all time. I can think of very few bands that can hit such a sultry, wicked groove with such little seeming effort. The lyrics contain more hard won wisdom than most chapters in the Bible, even if the good Lord would frown on how RWH earned it. And the production makes you feel like you are right there in the garage surrounded by cases of empty beer cans after closing down all the bars in town. Take a trip to the dark side of town and hang out with these boys a while. You'll be a better, wiser man for it.
