Nashville could surely not be too far away from Long Hollow Pike, in Gallatin, Tennessee - they are in the same state after all. But the similarities don't appear to end there. It seems as though Fileccia has put his heart and soul into this album as you would expect from anyone in the business of spreading the Word through music. It shows, not just through the production values which give each song an almost epic feel and the excellent and highly professional instrumentation, but most of all, through the intensity of Fileccia's faintly Elvis-like vocals. This, unfortunately, is where the album comes unstuck. Fileccia's vocal stylings have limited appeal and his mannerisms detract from the lyrics. Unlikely to be heard much beyond Gallatin.
