11. The Greenhornes – ****

The Greenhornes - ****Cincinnati band Greenhornes takes rock’n’roll back to the golden days of The Animals, Kinks and The Who. They don’t do it mechanically. Their songwriting is the key that makes this time travel an exciting experience. It is melancholic, and moody. This excellent concentration of talent was recognized back in 2005 by Jim Jarmusch who included their collaboration with Holly Golightly in his movie Broken Flowers. The band was busy with various side projects until this year that finally saw their first full length album in eight years. Four stars is a modest title. It’s five stars in my book.
