Description

Twenty-five years into a fascinating (and unexpected) career, life has never been better for Canadian roots-rock super-trio Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. They recently landed their first major label deal, got to play the Grand Ole Opry, and now they deliver the goods on this consistently strong album.

There is an embarrassment of talent in BARK, given that the group are comprised of three renowned singer/songwriters: Tom WilsonStephen Fearing and Colin Linden, who doubles as producer here in typically deft fashion. They take turns on lead vocals (usually on their own compositions), but are especially effective when two or all three harmonize, as on rousing first single “Cold 100 Miles” and “Kick My Heart Around.”

Each member tends to draw upon a slightly different genre (swamp-rock for Wilson, blues for Linden, folk for Fearing), resulting in a diverse, but never incoherent collection.
