Album Review
Kyle Vandenberg
Reviewed 2011-01-14 
Giant Sand: Blurry Blue Mountain Sounding like a more modern version of Bob Seger, Dire Straits, or Jackson Browne, this group is acoustic, downtempo, and contemplative, with calm instrumentals and spare/breathless vocals. FCC clean. Try 2, 8, 12.
1) Calmly morose, apathetic vocals.
2) Deliberately melancholic piano and vocals.
3) Country-ish, despondent.
4) Driven by multiple guitar lines and almost spoken vocals.
5) Echo-y vocals and guitar.
6) Spoken vocals, Dire Straits-sounding guitar.
7) Mellow, jazzy piano.
8) The loudest/fastest track on the album. Rockin’.
9) Contemplative guitar line.
10) Funky and upbeat.
11) Solid country sound.
12) Just piano and vocals. Like a pianoman crooning in the bar.
13) Like the steady, laid-back rock n’ roll of old.
14) Wow, sounds very close to Jackson Browne here.
