The Dixie Chicks (Two of Them) Back with a May Release of Their New CD "Court Yard Hounds." Remember When They Were Among the Few Celebrities with the Courage to Stand Up to the Bush Regime?
By the Dixie Chicks (Sisters Emilie Robison and Martie Maguire)
BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)
"This album is one of the Best albums I have bought in recent years. It is an amazing display of music. "Gracefully" is a key track!! I hope you enjoy!"

"Five ENJOYABLE Stars! Martie Maguire and Emily Robison come off their hiatus as two-thirds of The Dixie Chicks to form a new band, The Court Yard Hounds: a distinctive name for an equally distinctive duo producing their own brand of music. Stepping out on the stage on their own after a turbulent past few years that included a very successful 10 years run as the Chicks, the firestorm from the Natalie Maines' statement in Europe, the subsequent C&W radio boycott, the high of the 4 Grammy wins for Taking the Long Way that was a form of victory, and the huge sales that followed (it went to the top and was in Amazon.com's top 20 for months, and is still in the top 900 with an astounding 1100+ reviews). After taking time off and feeling the need to perform, the Court Yard Hounds were born and have conjured up a blend of country, folk, rock, and a little blues with a mixture of toe-tapping backbeats that is exceptionally well-done and enjoyable as they blend their voices in ear-pleasing harmonies both as a duo and with Jakob Dylan. Also the final track, "It Didn't Make a Sound" was the pre-CD single teaser which includes a video.

The 'best of the best' starts with "It Didn't Make a Sound" with a great blend of Emily's and Martie's voices underpinned by a rocking beat, banjo, guitars, bass, and a great-sounding honky-tonk piano. The beautiful, somber "Skyline" shows the high quality songwriting that is heard thoughout this CD: in this case, beautiful singing in solo and duo, set off by a loping guitar, a lonesome fiddle, organ, and distinctive drum figurations, (and it went straight to my iPod). The complexity of "Delight (Something New Under The Sun). "Ain't No Sun" starts with pure stark beauty that kicks into a rocking 'hammer down' section with scorching guitar and 'rock bottom' bass lines. "I Miss You" is good, solid county music with a singing guitar background. "Then Again" is pure, hip, country soul. And "See You In The Spring" is a marvelous performance with guest Jakob Dylan. This CD shows the singing/songwriting prowess of the Court Yard Hounds as a separate group and a subset of The Dixie Chicks that expands the soundscape of the group: it may serve as a wakeup call to Natalie Maines that it's time to get back into the studio and join the party the Court Yard Hounds have started. Highly Recommended. Five WONDERFUL Stars."
