It may often be viewed as a cliche, yet Canadian country rockers Elliott Brood genuinely went right back to their roots with this, their fourth album proper in a near-twelve year life as a band; taking its inspiration from the Constantines lyric 'Work and love will make a man of you', the focus of this opus, recorded at The Tragically Hip's studio in Ontario, was on the rites of passage, and the bittersweet perspective of looking back on one's misspent youth. Taking inspiration from the like of the Flying Burrito Brothers and Whiskeytown as much as The Hold Steady and The Drive-By Truckers, the result is an earnest, earthy salvo of soul-searching songcraft that's as gritty as it is engaging.
