Artist: Drive-By Truckers
Review: Whenever life knocks you down, the Drive-by Truckers are there to remind you that things could always be shittier. On the 10th album from this remarkably consistent Georgia band, a sexually abused woman murders her lover, a two-timing rogue goes missing and is hoped drowned, and, on the very pretty waltz "The Flying Wallendas," a group of acrobats take a tragic tumble. Songs like the raucous "Birthday Boy" show off a ragged-glory guitar attack that was absent on the last Truckers album
