'While featuring mandolin and dobro, this is not bluegrass. Electric guitar, bass and drums don't make it rock 'n roll. Un-poplike melodies and arrangements don't make it jazz. iTunes calls it folk, but that isn't it either. Take a bit of all of this and stir it up. In lesser hands it might be chaos. Larkin Poe turn it into a very smooth, well crafted piece of work. It's unique.' No Depression
