This, the Reivers' first full-length album, was a great amalgamation of rock and folk with a little bit of an "alternative" edge. It attracted a fair amount of attention in the music press, and received primarily good reviews. As with much of their future work, the lyrics were somewhat impressionistic, as opposed to straight stories. Unlike their subsequent releases, the drumming here was very frenzied, creating a unique sound which set them apart from similar bands. With vocals shared by John Croslin and Kim Longacre, the songs run the gamut from all-out rockers like "Araby" and "Sound and the Fury" to acoustic folk like the spirited "Freight Train Rain."
