Critical Mass
Release Date: August 31, 2010

by David Menconi

Dwelling in the too-rock-for-country/too-country-for-rock DMZ, Bobby Bare Jr. has always been hard to pin down. But with backup from My Morning Jacket and a tight two-day recording schedule, Bare is at his sharpest here. The Jacket crew provide a Southern gothic vibe with widescreen ambience, while Bare sings about an assortment of down-and-out types who likely reside in the same parish evinced by the Drive-by Truckers. "One of us has got to go," Bare sighs on the song of the same name, trying to summon the courage for suicide. He lives to tell the tale.
