Far more than on any of the Drive-By Truckers’ previous albums, Go-Go Boots rises like smoke from the old Muscle Shoals country-and-soul sound. We knew they were pin-your-ears-back rock and roll, but here in Go-Go Boots, the Truckers are country, and here, too the Truckers are soul and rhythm and blues. Indeed, this new light forges the sound – the rock. You can hear it in every chord. It’s their finest yet.
