. . . . tentatively dubbed Drunk With Power or Picketts 2000 or 101 Uses, this third outing by Seattle's hatless country quintet ended up as `simply' Euphonium. No one's sure what this means, but to one writer's ears (mine), it somehow reflects a broadening of soundscapes, some traditionally earthbound, some poking through the clouds. Producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) has pushed the band to use backdrops that dramatically enhance the darker moods that set the new originals of Christy McWilson and Leroy Sleep moons above much of Nashville's stiltedly clever song factory fare. Yet with the group's almost defiant (and now trademark) devotion to rock 'n' roll, rockabilly and swing, you end up with music that crashes dance floor barroom fun all over often deeply personal lyrical themes. What I'm trying to put across is that this record and this band move me on many different levels. They are ignition ready -- I advise climbing aboard for lift off. . . .' --Robert Stove Includes the Picketts' rootsy spin on the Who's 'Baba O'Riley' and the Clash's 'Should I Stay or Should I Go.'
