No title could be more apt for songwriter Chris Knight's seventh album. These 11 songs walk through the alleys and backroads that have always inhabited his work. Yet here, he melds acoustic and electric instruments, and his distinctive voice, to illustrate the lives of his earthy protagonists as they struggle to survive, love, endure, grieve, and find gratitude in confusing and sometimes desperate circumstances in everyday life. Knight walks a lean, mean, musical line that comes from ; through roots rock to country. His best songs stand shoulder to shoulder with John Prine's (who makes an appearance), John Mellencamp's, and Steve Earle's.
