Drive-By Truckers, 'The Big To-Do' (ATO)

7
The Big To-Do
Critical Mass
Label: ATO

by David Menconi

The old comedy adage goes that if it bends, it's funny, but if it breaks, it's not. Tell that to Drive-By Truckers, who break everything in sight yet still strike tragicomic gold every time. The Big To-Do, their eighth full-length, featuresanother cast of walking-dead survivors struggling with their vices in a Faulknerian landscape of rocked-up desperation. "The Fourth Night of My Drinking" is the money shot, detailing an epic bender that frontman Patterson Hood concludes "will be through with me before I'm through with it."
