Review – End of the Day 2

Review – “End of the Day”, unknown author, source. 1989.

After three solid albums (one when they were still called Zeitgeist), the Reivers really ought to be more popular than they are. End of the Day (Capitol/DB/8.98 list) is their most likeable record yet, throwing all sorts of ideas into the hopper- country twang, garage grit, neo-Velvet Underground moodiness, back porch harmonies- and coming out with some shimmering, extremely catchy tunes. The use of a new producer (Andy Metcalfe, of Soft Boys/Squeeze fame, replacing Don Dixon) results in a more polished, but not overdone sound.
