XZOUIX This music will take you places... it certainly has taken me on a trip away from my troubled mind and helped me get through a rough season. What a music, what a gem! Favorite track: Pale Rider.

The Disillusioned One As evidenced by the many enthusiasts hailing from different musical pastures, there's something about the idiosyncratic quality on display here that transcends genre. With the music being as rich and atmospheric as the storytelling, this might very well resonate with everyone from outlaw to sheriff. (Hell, maybe he’ll forget you’re a wanted man and rub elbows with you down at the saloon.) For me personally? Inextricably bound to warm summer nights, good times with wife and friends, and RDR II.
