The Allman Brothers Band
's best studio album since Brothers and Sisters
is a loud, brash, hard-rocking collection of consistently solid if not first-rate songs. The singing is some of the best since Idlewild South
, and although they would do better once they brought in Warren Haynes
, the dual-guitar lineup of Dickey Betts
and Dan Toler
is a reminder of what the group had been missing since Duane Allman
's death. The music isn't earth-shattering, but it is exciting through and through.
