Bill has stated elsewhere that he considers this a Vigilantes album - but regardless of whether you see it that way or as a solo release, it feels like a triumphant return to form. (I think) it's his first full length album since "Permafrost" 6 years prior. And it's a doozy! The album could have been billed as "Bill Mallonee and Crazy Horse" and I wouldn't have questioned it for a moment! Terrific arrangements, excellent tones, catchy tunes, and always-thoughtful lyrics.
