This 1997 release was slow to catch on with Jayhawks fans; the departure of founder-guitarist-vocalist Mark Olson seemed destined to mark the band as one that had seen better days. But not only do the impeccable country-rock leanings of singer/songwriter Gary Louris shine as always here, his vocals soar beautifully with pianist Karen Grotberg''s (as they did with Olson''s), and the band isn''t shy about genre hopping. Psychedelic pop makes a cameo appearance ("Think About It"), Tom Petty-esque, AOR-friendly rock is perfected ("Big Star," "It''s Up to You"), and gorgeous, genteel ballads ("Sound of Lies," "Trouble") continue to impress. Louris wears his heart on his sleeve in the raw-nerve musings of "Dying on the Vine," and "The Man Who Loved Life" is a perfect Jayhawks moment: a quiet, lone piano opens the song, which builds slowly with layers of vocals, guitar, and piano, resulting in a majestic coda. <I>--Lorry Fleming</I>This 1997 release was slow to catch on with Jayhawks fans; the departure of founder-guitarist-vocalist Mark Olson seemed destined to mark the band as one that had seen better days.
