"Brian Johnson & The Acquitted (Album review from The Netherlands"

(Translated from Dutch)

Brian Johnson and the Acquitted from Bloomington, Indiana, and that's probably a contributory cause that last year's debut Cold Friday (house) is hardly noticed. In Texas, although they would have more competition, they would undoubtedly receive more attention. With a slight swagger Stonesy played songs are in fact nothing wrong. The vocals of songwriter Brian Johnson remains a bit like hanging a pitch, but that's a nice bonus. Sometimes he sounds like Mick Jagger. Guitarist David Allen provides constantly fine impulses in the songs. Country Music got all the words I need right now, Johnson sings in West Coast Blues and that is quite liked. Riders with a slight cowpunkgalop. Remember You Said is the kind of rock that draws as many lines as the seventies roots rock to contemporary in style and is therefore comparable with Deer Tick. Certainly by helping with vocals that Johnson gets. A highlight accordingly. Only a few quieter songs like Johnson a little too much focus on success with the girls. Available at CD Baby -

Brian Johnson and The Acquitted formed in 2008. With heartland roots and country branches, they have been spreading the gospel of rock across the Bible Belt. From biker bars to coffeehouses, opening for touring acts, and playing as the headliners, Brian Johnson and The Acquitted have been working hard to make their name. Born of love, sadness, and the power of music, songwriters Brian Johnson and David Allen understand what it takes to tell a damn good story and get the feet stomping at the same time. In 2010, they released their debut album, Cold Friday. At once fresh and familiar, the album combines acoustic and electric guitars at the heart of Americana. These songs weave stories of people, from the down and out narrator of "Remember You Said" to the jangle pop of "Hear Me Tonight." Each track stands alone telling a unique story, and at the end all are unified. These songs lend a voice to different characters, but all hailing from the same place, be it the center or the outskirts of town.
