As Terry said, track 9 is about trying to be like Paul when he was in prison. Faithful to God no matter what situation we find ourselves in, the good and the bad. That and it ROCKS!

my review is here


http://www.gracehotel.net/Albums/Reviews/06/LostDogs06.html

go there and check it out...please Big Grin






ok....here it is, since i know how lazy you guys are


the lost dogs are back, in the style we have come to expect from them. after the scathing reviews of last years instrumental album "island dreams", the boys come back with an album of alt-country rockers and gorgeous ballads, reminiscent of "gift horse' and the first two lost dogs albums.

for the unitiated, the lost dogs originally consisted of the frontmen of arguable the four most important bands in christian rock : terry taylor (daniel amos), michael roe (the 77s), derri daugherty (the choir) and gene eugene (adam again). with this foray, 6 years removed from gene's untimely passing, the dogs add choir drummer steve hindalong as the official fourth dog. for additional support, they toss is matt slocum on pedal steel, and tim chandler's great bass work.

the album album is a perfect mix of slow burning ballads and straight out country rock, containing some of the best music the band has ever made. the high point, for me, is the 'get me ready', a barn burner rip-roaring rocker asking God to get us ready to meet him, featuring scorching guitar work from mike roe. this could almost be a 77s song, and easily the hardest-rocking the guys have ever sounded. 'devil's elbow' is another up-tempo tune, a re-made daniel amos classic, from 'songs of the heart', that seems to be pure fun. to counterbalance these, 'one more day', the only roe-pened song on the album is a cowboy song, seeming at first to be about love gone wrong, before, like many of roe's songs, turning into an ode to seeing the better side of things, using our time here on earth wisely. the album closer, 'that's where jesus is' is an anthem type song, along the lines of 'breathe deep (the breth of god)" or "pray where you are", reminding us that god loves the downtrodden, the broken, and that he is more concerned with us helping one another than with our houses, cars, politics, or even hit songs.

Overall, the quite possibly the strongest album in the lost dogs already very impressive catalog, and one that fans of anyone involved should own.

Yes! And the lyrics may rock harder than the guitars. What a great song! The Apostle Paul meets Jimi.

I find the realization that what is going on in the world, our situation, as really not mattering a great freedom.

I love the new CD. I say it generally fits in-between Gift Horse and Real Men Cry, although I concur that Get Me Ready is really so rockin' it could easily be a 77s song. Definitely a little more variety on this disc than the past few. It resembles more of the last major-label releases but I would guess was produced with much less budget so it is incredible considering that. I think the pedal steel really helps their overall sound and I am really glad to hear it back! Still have to listen more to get any more detailed in a review. Pleased

For anyone that was turned off by NCT, Mutt, and/or Island Dreams I would say: This is it, the Dogs are back and you better buy this CD! (Well, at least as much as will ever be possible without Gene). For the record, I really like all the Dogs stuff, some people just wanted exactly the same thing all the time and couldn't handle minor directional changes. At least the Dogs didn't do a New Wave record or something! Tongue Big Grin

I love this album! It just might be their best -- though I agree that its apples and oranges. I love those earlier, grab-bag albums the best, but this probably tops those.

And some of Terry's very best lyrics.

I posted my thoughts on the dorkboard but maybe I should do a review here when I get time. I love the whole thing. It's one of the best projects any of the Dogs have done in years.

I got mine friday

and all the things said I concur with .

The lines in "hardened heart" may have hit me the hardest...
What a wonderfully honest tune.
the work has some pretty strong "Country" feel at times..and One Bum is a bit of comic relief (sort of)..

but I need to listen a bit closer to all to post definitive thoughts. (only got one spin - so far)
First reaction- ?
we got an pomagranate here- and I just began to peel it.
I DO like the gtrab bag feel- lots of twists and turns in the first outing .

I'm sitting here pay the bills and talking with Mojo The Talking Manolin and.....nevermind I don't know where I was going with that one....
The new cd is wonderful! I'm not great at writing some real indepth review, and don't really care to, I just sat and listened and enjoyed every song. My favorite after one full listen would be "That's Where Jesus Is". The song "Only One Bum..." made me think of "Bungalow Bill" by the Beatles, just the type on song...Just glad there's no Yoko to spoil the party!

Terry, Mike, Derri, & Steve, You've Done It Again!
Love & God Bless, & Hope To See You During The Winter Tour!

Christian Musician
The Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees by The Lost Dogs
Fools of the World

by CM Staff
“That’s Jesus in the homeless faces/With the junkies in their livin’ hell/That’s Jesus with the drunks and in the lonely places/The rest homes and prison cells/That’s where Jesus is/Where we ought to be.” Possibly the best Lost Dogs effort since the Gene Eugene era. (Specifically: the wondrous “Little Red Riding Hood”)

Lost Cabin is a work of whimsy, warmth, nostalgia, poignancy, provocation and holiness, all filtered through four guys who understand the tragedy of the human condition and the triumph of redemption. The record is an amalgamation of classic American styles, featuring the band’s best integration of influences yet. From nostalgic country to blistering rock ‘n’ roll, the band benefits from the production hand of new, fourth member, Steve Hindalong, as the sound is more supple and full than projects that carry 5 times the recording budget.

Of course, that means nothing if you don’t have songs and, oh, do the Dogs have songs. I can say, without an ounce of hyperbole, that Terry Scott Taylor is probably one of American music’s five greatest living songwriters. With a bent for provocative language and conceptual grandeur, Taylor is adept at pointing out the foibles of the human condition and, all the while, accepting his own culpability in the process. Plus, he is capable of wrapping up his rural landscapes in rich, beatle-esque hooks. Add in Derri Daugherty’s impossibly sweet vocals and the athletic musicality of Mike Roe and you have one of the most musically imposing bands of our day, in any genre.

One listen to the nostalgic Americana of “Broken Like Brooklyn” or “Whispering Memories”, the bright folk-pop of “Corona del Mar”, “That’s Where Jesus Is” or the pulsating, California rock of “Devil’s Elbow” should convince you that this is no ordinary outfit. If more convincing is necessary, take a listen to the blistering, garage-rock of “Get Me Ready” – featuring incendiary guitar work from Roe that mirrors the urgency of the song’s call to be prepared for whatever God puts in one’s path, be it edification or painful instruction. Listening to a Lost Dogs album is like enjoying a six-course meal at a five-star restaurant, in an era where most music fans are content with musical fast-food. Don’t make the mistake of consuming empty calories, when you can fully nourish yourself with The Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees
