Chuck Ragan - Covering Ground

Rating: 8

It might, on rare occasions, stray almost too close to the back catalogue of Bruce Springsteen, but this, Chuck Ragan’s third full-length solo release, oozes blue-collar charm. Sounding like a twisted love song to the road with its folky violins and pained harmonica melodies, 'Covering Ground' is Ragan’s most personal and engaging record yet. A particular highlight is ‘Seems We’re OK’, in which Ragan showcases a gorgeous gravel-soaked voice that is almost worth smoking 40 a day to attain. Wonderful stuff.
