"To call Alejandro Escovedo the godfather of modern country rock would sell him short. He fronted the influential twang-rock outfits Rank and File, and True Believers, but as a solo artist, he's transcended labels, and his latest is a chrome-bright autobiographical song cycle with flashbacks that roar into the present. Escovedo, who nearly died of hepatitis C in 2003, clearly believes in the life-giving powers of rock & roll, and Real Animal is one powerful sermon." - Rolling Stone review
