[SHERYL CROW MEDICINE SHOW] If bringing a brass section along the bluegrass circuit seemed a daft notion five years back, Holy Ghost Tent Revival successfully demonstrated the HORDE hordes will shimmy along to the poppiest strains of any century-old idioms, however mismatched. But any inventive whimsy shining through their first blend of Dixieland, string-band and Squirrel Nut Zippers-styled defiant eccentricity has evidently given way to the warmed-over soul-funk posturings that dampen last year's Sweat Like The Old Days. Collecting fans of every shade of American popular music purposefully distant from that devil rock'n'roll, the NPR-sanctioned, dinner-party-approved North Carolina combo effectively proves back-asswards corollary of the Adult Album Alternative presumption that a small army of mismatched instrumentalists lends troubadours of a certain age the trappings of authenticity.  Mess with the horns, you get the bullshit.
