Guardian go somewhat swampy on this sizzling new release. Plenty of that good ole baking Southern rock 'n' boogie sound, bashing guitar, country rock rhythms, with soulful vocals. Sort of invasion of Allman Bros/Charlie Daniels territory. Lighter touch than usual Guardian output, but as y'all must have noticed by now, power is no more dependant on volume in music than it is in preaching. "C'mon Everyone" is a call to worship treated to a barroom shuffle kind of beat beloved of all the great Southern rock bands. They have only gone and included the great old song "The Preacher And The Bear", the trad comedy number done by everyone from The Golden Gate Quartet to Jerry Reed. Superb music from this truly excellent band, highly recommended.
