A trip through Ohio.
Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, aka Over the Rhine and the
two magicians behind the soulful music of the new double-disc Ohio,
continue to experiment with genres, ranging from the sensual "Lifelong Fling" to the honky-tonk number "Show Me."
"Long Lost Brother" effuses true humanity: "Thought that
we'd be further along by now ... /Jesus and Mary, can you carry us
across this ocean into the arms of forgiveness?" Poignant words for
a world tangled in fear and violence. www.pastemusic.com.
