Playing Time – 44:14 -- The sonic alchemy of the Eli Young Band transforms an eclectic variety of music influences into their own high-grade gold. The Texas band is poised to build their legion of fans. “Small Town Kid,” is a ballad about having a simple story, being driven by rock & honky-tonk music & needing nothing more than a good-looking lady, a truck & some occasional whiskey or tequilla. All twelve songs on “Level” are originals written by the band. Hailing from Denton, Texas, the quartet has the potential to make some significant impact on the alt-country rock market. Their material addresses some common themes -- love, heartache, pain, loss & desperation. Circumspect, yet still deliberate, each song seems to take a life of its own. Many are full of sadness or despair, & I wouldn’t mind hearing a few more happy, uplifting songs from them. "When It Rains" suggests that if you “start out depressed then everything comes as a pleasant surprise.” The title cut has a catchy melodic guitar riff & snappy bass line as Eli sings “waiting on life to level, waiting on something stable, maybe soon I’ll be able, to rest my head again.” Their most engaging & reflective songs are “Highways & Broken Hearts” & “Bottom Line.” The band writes, arranges & presents music that will especially appeal widely to a younger demographic that is looking for thoughtful messages in their non-mainstream listening. Recent music I’ve heard from the Texas and Oklahoma region often has a rebellious, almost defiant, flavor. This band will definitely turn some heads. Let’s hope that their songs are distinctive & provocative enough to land them a few lasting hits. They're enroute to the big time. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, OR.)
