The Drive-By Truckers Decoration Day Reissued on 180-gram Vinyl LP

Remastered 2-LP Gatefold Set Sounds Fantastic!

The Drive-By Truckers never do anything by the book, so it's no surprise that with Decoration Day, the band's first release for New West Records, Patterson Hood and his mates take another rewarding left turn. The album boasts a handful of crowd-pleasing cuts such as the brash, cranky rocker "Hell No, I Ain't Happy" and the ringing "Marry Me." Yet more common are moments of startling beauty (the pedal-steel solos on "The Deeper In" and "Loaded Gun in the Closet" and the jangling guitars, rolling melodies, and soulful fiddle breaks of "Heathens" and "My Sweet Annette") and heavy doses of recrimination and regret, as in the contemplative suicide tune "When the Pin Hits the Shell."

Where Southern Rock Opera chronicles the duality of Southern culture,
Decoration Day is more personal, delving into busted relationships, private
tragedies, and the repercussions of life-changing decisions. Songs resonate
because they are near to truth--most of the lyrics are based on first-hand
observations and experiences. On several occasions, the Truckers open wounds
with slowed-down tempos and high-and-lonesome tones, channeling loss,
anxiety, and self-discovery as effectively acoustically as they do via
Marshall stacks. Recorded live in just a few takes,
Decoration Day crackles
with intensity, originality, and honesty.
-Bob Gendron, The Absolute Sound, August 2003
