Easily, 16 Horsepower's most darkest and atmospheric release with a sombre side of the band with a more subtle performances by each member and Although I find it a great listen it just falls short of being as good as Sackcloth n Ashes mainly due it nothing being as memorable and some songs not being as great as songs such as Sinnerman or Outlaw Song but it is just as tight and cohesive as their impressive debut

Track Review

Hutterite Mile 8/10
Outlaw Song 8.5/10.

Their last album shows their transition from an Alt-Country band to a pure folk/Country band, that started with their previous album " Secret South". This album is slow and sounds more mature and cryptic, but to be honest I prefer their energetic albums, even if this release is solid.

Highlights: "Outlaw Song", "Beyond the Pale",
