Confederate Railroad has found a likely label home in Audium, and it certainly has the right producer in Barry Beckett. The group stays close to its raucous roots with cuts like the downright ornery Southern rocker "Still One Outlaw Left" and the pounding "Borrowed Time," but the group is capable of softening up considerably with the oddly touching "What Brothers Do" and soothing "Between the Rainbows and the Rain." Perhaps Railroad's best quality is not taking itself too seriously: "She Treats Her Body Like a Temple," "White Trash With Money," and "The 'R' Word" are, like it or not, new redneck anthems. And vocalist Danny Shirley and some snappy production from Beckett are enough to make the goofy "I'm Diggin' It" work deftly.—RW
