Editors’ Notes

Lucero’s sixth full-length features more of the tough, hard-driving barroom rock they have delivered for nearly a decade. What they do is not unique — early Bruce Springsteen with the E Street Band, the Replacements, the Black Crowes, and the Hold Steady are good comparisons — but they do it extremely well. This is their first release for a major label yet they’ve lost none of their edge or passion during the transition, so longtime fans can rest easy. One notable change is the introduction of horns, which give rockers like “Sounds of the City,” “Sixes and Sevens,” and “The Devil and Maggie Chascarillo” added punch and texture. The best tunes (“Smoke,” “What Are You Willing to Lose,” “Can’t Feel a Thing,” “Johnny Davis”) combine powerful guitar riffs and keyboards with sharp lyrics about beautiful losers, tough luck kids, and doomed love, all delivered by the soulful, scratchy vocals of singer Ben Nichols. Those looking for smart, fist-pumping, no frills rock ‘n’ roll would do well to visit 1372 Overton Park.

Customer Reviews

This is rawk

This is not alternative. It is pure, whiskey soaked, cigarette stained unadulterated bar rock with a twang and a punk asthetic. Whatever that means. Just buy it. It's Lucero's major label debut with only the slightest of leans in the commercial direction (read: a couple of schmaltzier than usual ballads). The horns are new... lots of horns - and longtime fans may have trouble with that at first, but you'll get used to it. Great songs are great songs and this album features at least 3-4 of Lucero's best and a bunch of really good tracks. Rank it somewhere in the middle of the Lucero discography, which puts it way above the average put out these days.

Great album but iTunes needs to figure out who these guys are.

This album is incredible. Lucero seems to mature musically with each album. Though I'm not a big fan of horns, Lucero makes it work. Some of 1372 Overton Park sounds a bit different from past Lucero ablums but still has that familar feel of their previous work. I couldn't wait for this album to be released and I have not been disappointed. These guys are amazing.

Now iTunes needs to figure out that these guys are not the latina solo artist that they keep confusing them with. I'd also like to see iTunes put them in one category instead of having them scattered throughout country, rock, alternative and latino. Please take a listen to the music and put them in the right place.


I would cosider myself a fairly big Lucero fan and I'm at a loss for words here. I think each album since TMFW has gone a little downhill and this one fits in perfectly with that progression. I feel that if I had a program that could erase all the horn tracks off this album, that would change my mind. The songs are great songs but I feel the horns are misplaced. They are just thrown in without bringing anything positive to the songs. Most tracks have so much going on in them with all the "new" instruments they just sound muddled. You can barely hear the guitar at times burried under the horns and organ. If you are a true fan, pick this record up. If you are new to this band, go buy Tennessee.

Adding a Southern flavor to their love of the indie folk-pop of Ida, Memphis alt-country rockers Lucero have suffered the turbulence that comes with the indie scene, but their story of perseverance and survival is triumphant, so much so that director Aaron Goldman made a film about it. Formed by leader Ben Nichols in the late '90s, Lucero took their name from the Spanish word meaning "bright star." After releasing a single on the Landmark label, Lucero -- rounded out by drummer Roy Berry, bassist...
