The first Wino unplugged record was a neat little novelty, but even with a guest star on this one, I’d say it’s still one too many. Frankly, I can’t even see this tiding me over till the new Saint Vitus record comes out.
If you dig Torche, Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa and the like, then you will dig this to a degree I’m sure.
So, before I get into my top albums of the year, it’s time for some Christmas cleaning. These reviews have been sitting on my hard drive for a while, and chances are you haven’t heard of most of these bands–but some of them are worth checking out.
Although I’ve got no grading scale or any reference points when it comes to acoustic folk, I will say that if you worship Wino, you’ll want this.
