Release Notes:

How do you grade a perfect album? More to the point, how do you review an album
so remarkable that its perfection will ultimately turn most listeners off

And here is something else that will blow your mind: Most of the people who end
up disliking Last Of The Country Gentlemen after theyve heard it still wont be
able to pan it very much, because that would be like piling more agony on a guy
that sounds like hes just had the worst day of his entire life
The back-story goes like this: Josh T. Pearson pulls the plug on the promising
Lift To Experience band after one double album and a year of such enormous
tragedy that it gets the band members to consider Maybe this is a sign from a
higher being that we should wrap it before things really get bad

For a man like Pearson - someone raised in a family with religious convictions
a sign from above is not something to ignore or take lightly

During a nearly decadelong sabbatical, Pearson released only one song - an
appropriate cover of a Hank Williams tune. Occasionally, hed play a gig or two
for fifty bucks, purposely avoiding the road to additional notoriety

But at one show, he noticed that his epic tales of inner turmoil even brought
tears to a pair of surely Irish meatheads. It was then that Josh T. Pearson
decided he needed to record the material, because he realized that the music he
created to resolve his own demons was powerful enough to emit a cathartic
response in others

Last Of The Country Gentlemen is sixty-minutes long with only seven songs to
choose from. Do the math, and youll see that this means youre in for a long
ride. And with only Pearsons last-call drawl and barely there instrumentation
underneath, youre going to need a moment or two to fully engulf this
understated masterpiece

The short track listing may be intimidating to some, but it is essential to this
albums success. Nearly every song is a slow build, and for many of them, things
start getting jaw-droppingly good around the halfway point

Theres a vague linear pattern thats followed on the longer material, but you
get the unnerving sense that hes softening himself up a bit on the first half
of the song before totally laying everything out on the song until it feels
uncomfortably close to eavesdropping

Sweetheart I Aint Your Christ starts with broken guitar scales before Pearson
weaves a heart-wrenching tale of a love thats parting. You dont need a lover
or a friend, he whispers. You need a savior, he continues, hitting each word
with purpose, And I am not him

You can hear Pearson break down close to tears at some points. At others, hell
pause for what seems like an eternity - leading the listener to believe the
story is over. After the silence, he returns, leading us to believe that he
needed a moment or two to collect himself before continuing ahead

I dont know how it will affect you, but I pushed back tears over a half-dozen
times the first time I heard Last Of The Country Gentlemen. Sure, the impact had
a lot to do with the material and the way its delivered, but the sheer honesty
of this collection resonates with our compassion as people. If you dont feel a
tinge of empathy when you hear I know no one knows more than I that I was
wrong, and still I can barely say 'Im sorry' with a fuckin song ("Sorry With
A Song") then maybe youre part of whats wrong with the world. The lack of
civility of our elected leaders, the joy that we relish when people fail before
us, and the way we address each other in digital anonymity - all of these traits
are the polar opposite of whats taking place in this record

Theres a sense of caring within Last Of The Country Gentlemens devastation
even when the narrators struggling with his own sin and guilt. Yes, theres a
bunch of spiritual imagery throughout the album, giving the confessional a
heavier tone and those moments of silence an added poignancy

Give it the time it deserves and youll hear how a quick, minimally arranged
weekend recording of a Texan abroad can stand above most anything else youll
hear all year

Listen again and you may even hear something beyond the album of the year
accolaids that Last Of The Country Gentlemen will undoubtedly receive. You may
hear a record that can warm your heart enough that it points the way to your own
