Look out = Digipack = (CD)
The kind of energy displayed on Look Out by the Hackensaw Boys is rare. At first listen the tempo is so fast you can hardly take a second to admire the musicianship or uniqueness of individual voices; it just demands you take part clapping, tapping, or howling along. Once you really listen though you can find the seams of the music: a deeply rooted country sensibility, a colorful cast of singers and musicians, a sense of humour, and threads bound to punk rock just as much as country and folk music. What stands at the apex of this group though is the original song writing. Only one song on the album is a traditional song, the rest are some of the finest examples of light contemporary folk songs and arrangements available. The group does venture into addressing serious issues and doesn't paint them bleakly, as is all too common, they look forward to an optimistic future stating "I believe there are better times ahead"("Sally Ann"). Though these more serious issues might be treated slightly naively, the vein of optimism and innocence runs through the blood of the Boys and it shows in the sheer tenacity of the music and their driven attitude to play their music passionately amidst Pop, Rap, and Electronic genres. Don't pass down a chance to see this high energy band live either, you surely won't be disappointed.
