The Independent Musicians CD Reviews|
Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section
features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.
I wanted to let you know a little
about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people that we review know how we
think of their music and how we listened to their creations.
First of all, we strongly believe that if your music stinks then
the world should know about it! After all, you have the nerve to charge as much for
your stuff as the majors do so it better be pretty damn good. If your material is good, we'll be glad to
tell the world. I We will hold nothing back! That is a promise.

80 Feet Deep -
by 29 MULES
Reviewed by Jimmy Caterine, staff reviewer
First let me say ĖI never in a million years would have thought I would one day be reviewing music like this.
I just never liked music like this and have avoided listening to it at all cost.
In light of that Ėlet me say that this is one of the most powerful discs I have heard in a long time.
Itís dirty, oil smudged and sweaty. Itís got something and I just canít pinpoint it. Itís like ZZ Top and Charlie Daniels got together,
smoked some crack, drank some Jack and laid down some southern, dirty boy blues.
I really didnít want to like this record but it grows on you like a bad addiction. Most of 80 Feet Deep is very dark sounding.
I would have to describe 29 Mules as the Alice in Chains of Southern Rock. I am really surprised that I have not heard more about these guys.
The country and blues clichťís run rampant with 29 Mules. Again something that I would normally wince at and criticize as being unoriginal,
but here it works and really adds to the theme. These guys are just damn good.
The production is flawless. The performance is powerful. The writing is dark and about as red neck as it gets but they pull it
off with such power and conviction you canít help but feel the grime and sweat on your own skin.
Stand out tracks are FW. TX, Caballero, and Hell Donít Want to Ride. My favorite track is Devil Stole My Last $10. I actually
felt like I was going to get hit by a train while listening to this track.
Samples from the CD:
/Old Blind Dog
/Get Behind the Mule
/Devil Stole My Last/
/Stopped Drinking Whiskey
/Bring It Up Mules/
/Hell Don't Wanna Ride
Just buy this CD!! If you like ZZ Top, Mr. Daniels, or even Skynard but have a hankeriní for somethiní a bit heavier -check
out 29 Mules Ė 80 Feet Deep. Even if you are not a fan of southern rock but like it heavy, I would suggest giving this disc
a chance. Like I said, I didnít want to like it but now I canít get clean.
