ZBB as always is a band that does not allow themselves to be put in a "box" musically. Every album is different and unique which is one of the reasons I love them as a band. The only similarity in the albums is the amazing harmonies and amazing musical abilities of the artists themselves. Never disappointed in ZBB! :)
It appears as if Zac Brown Band is in that category where you really can't go wrong anywhere and this EP seems to be proof of that. He teamed up with a music legend who couldn't be less country and keeps his sound in there while trying something different. Also I love that Zac is in that category where he doesn't need to write songs about his truck, beer, or his gun to be successful. He's totally not mainstream country and that's what makes him a future music legend along with Johnny cash and hank williams
To each there own taste. I'm in the minority here but I think this is his worst album. I really don't like the way it is mixed and the harmonies are disappointing. I'm listening on Grado RS1i's. The bass sounds muddy and the highs are bright but there is no middle which is one of the things I liked most about them. All the other albums had a full top to bottom sound with really tight harmonies that created a full sound I loved.This album is missing that raw full sound. This album has more of a synthesized sound which is not as pleasing to me.
These guys continue to impress me with their ability to stretch into different genres and still sound awesome. country, folk, regae, rb and now rock! These guys aren't afraid to try different things and still sound great. It's really impressive.
Zac Brown Band has been my favorite band for a long time and actually started my appreciation of country music. Many complain that the Zac Brown Band should taken out of the Country genre because they don't sound like average country music. They don't sing about trucks and tailgates and don't have a average country music electric guitar sound that we've grown used to. We think that because it's different we should think its bad music. I don't think Waylon and Willie had the average country sound, and the outlaw country music revolution made country what it is today. So if you like this music don't let the fact that ZBB doesn't make "Redneck" music keep you from enjoying a great band's amazing music. And also I don't think Johnny or Waylon or Willie or Merle sing about their trucks or sitting on tailgates or any of the trash that mainstream country music forces us to listen to. The Grohl Sessions is a different but great album that gives us a refreshing new take on country music.
why the zac brown band does not clean up at all these award shoes is beyond me! they the most talented group of musicians out there today! i don't think the depth,the heart and soul of this bands talent, can't wait for more!
Pure friggin talent. I have worshipped these guys for years. Why ZBB isn't celebrated more for continuing to do it their way is beyond me. There is no genre they don't belong in, They made it on country radio but "country" doesn't come close to defining them. Dave Grohl is the man....did a great job producing this EP. I'm a new fan. Great music! Real music!
I have always enjoyed the music from Dave Grohl. His tenacity in producing outstanding music is phenomenal and working with the Zac Brown Band has not decreased his value as a musical artist, but took the Zac Brown Band to greater heights and solidified a lasting musical legacy for both. A must buy for all who like Zac Brown Band and Dave Grohl. It is worth the money.
The Zac Brown Band is one of the greatest of our time. These songs, as are all their others, are amazing. This is one of the only artists where I buy the whole album, and it never dissappoints. Love, love, love them. I had to play "All Alright" on repeat for a while before I could even hear the other songs. It's just too, too good.
