Album Review: Sirens

Title:  Sirens (Official, Amazon, iTunes, CD Universe)

Sons of Bill’s third album Sirens is a fantastic amalgam of college rock, alt country, and classic rock (ala Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty).  Throughout the record you can hear hints of The Replacements, Springsteen, Drag the River, Cracker, Petty, and Uncle Tupelo.  In fact it is Uncle Tupelo that I am reminded of most when listening to Sirens.  From start to finish this is a great record.  The songs are personal and passionate and touch on the journeys of life and love, while touching a chord sonically that has a far reaching appeal for fans of truly great rock ‘n’ roll music.  If you are a fan of any of the aforementioned bands or the likes of The Gaslight Anthem, The Forty Nineteens, Two Cow Garage, or Lucero then I highly recommend checking out Sons of Bill’s Sirens.
