Default Drive By Truckers

Well, I picked up A Blessing and a Curse today, and while I thought it was pretty damn good, I was left kind of wanting more. I was slightly disappointed in it--and I kept waiting for them to pick it up, on most every song. I was expecting more of an uptempo rockabilly thing, and this one didn't quite deliver.

Do they have a definitive CD that I need to buy? I definitley think it has potential--but please tell me they rock out a little bit more than this one.

I thought it was about "trucker bombs" that the truckers toss out the window. Anything to save them from making a stop I guess.

The Dirty South and A Southern Rock Opera are both pretty damn good in my book and perhaps more what you're looking for. They've cleaned up their sound a bit in ABAAC, but I like it.

I thought The Dirty South was better than their newer album:

Went to see them open up for the black crowes recently, but fell into a bottle of absinthe a friend brought and missed 'em. Was so pissed...but so carefree.

I really dig these guys.

Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed they're touring with the Crowes, but hopefully they'll follow up with a smaller venue tour as I've never seen them but really want to.

I can never stay angry at the crows too long. They toured with Jimmy Page after all...

I was there, in Charlotte, NC. Things went downhill afterwards, as I recall. They do have a pretty solid 'greatest hits', however!
