Incidentally, the Drive-By Truckers Rock

I've been unable to stop listening to Southern Rock Opera for the past few days. Each listen brings out more goodness. Layers and layers of it. Well, I guess now the truth is out there. I'm an unreconstructed redneck. But damn, there's something there that even a suburban kid from eastern Maine can relate to, and a lot there that the same kid, moved to North Carolina after college, and happily employed in "high tech", can relate to. Or at the very least, I can remember it. And what I can't remember I can imagine, thanks to Patterson Hood. Vividly. With a three-lead guitar attack and thumping bass and drums and some of the most soulful southern rock I've heard in a long damn time.
