CD REVIEW: Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons "Death Won't Send A Letter"

Somewhere on the border between country music and the blues sits Cory Chisel and his brand of American rock. Their new full length album, produced by Chisel and Brendan Benson, is full of outstanding compositions. Some songs were also co-written by Benson and feature members of Benson's band the Raconteurs. The album starts off with "Born Again" which is easily the best song on the album. It is a edgy blues rocker that shows off Chisel's great lyricism. The lyrics take center stage on songs like "Tennessee" which is a slow acoustic track displaying the essence of who Chisel is as a musician. Other standouts are "Angel Of Mine" and "Love Is Gone" but every song on this album are good enough to hear on the radio. Cory Chisel is at the front of the newest generation of musical geniuses and this awesome album is sure to keep him at the top for some time.
