  1. You should have a “mixed” button, MadPriest. Track 3 is very good.

    Why do I feel the poll is a test of my taste in music rather than an opinion on the music? I mean if you like the songs, then anyone who doesn’t must be wrong. 🙂

  2. I mean if you like the songs, then anyone who doesn’t must be wrong. 🙂

    I would have thought that goes without saying. However, the idea of the poll is not to flush out the Philistines. I had to learn at a young age to live peaceably among those with far less coolness than myself. If I hadn’t, the sheer numbers involved would have left me feeling isolated and possibly suicidal.

  3. Arrogance, thy name is MadPriest.

    Anyway, how does one vote if one thinks the selections are a mixed bag? Should one not vote at all? But then one might vote any old way just to see the results – which I didn’t, because I’m honest.

  4. Arrogance, thy name is MadPriest.

    No. Arrogance is for people who merely think they are better than everyone else. I think the phrase you were looking for was “natural superiority.”

    And as for your voting dilemma – well, if you want to sit on the fence I am afraid you are at the wrong blog. We are a decisive people round here with no time for wishy washy centralists.

  5. I like the instrumentalists, especially the mandolin player. They are very tasty pickers. I do not love her slightly nasal approach to singing, but it’s not the worst I ever heard!

  6. I’m not a country music fan (mostly) but I thought this was wonderful. (I also love Nanci Griffith and, God rest her, Kate Wolf.)

    (And, God rest her, Eva Cassidy, though she was as much jazz and blues as country.)

    If you come from Ballard, Washington (i.e., Seattle) and want to make it in country music, a slightly nasal approach is de rigueur.
