“With their new release God, Sin, Whiskey, and Women, Iowa City's Tallgrass crafts a refreshing twist on some familiar musical territory. It is a soundtrack of leather saddlebags, a sun-faded cattleman's duster and barbwire slowly taming a wild prairie. Just like the recent remake of the western 3:10 to Yuma, these songs retain enough of the original to keep it in comfortable territory, but offer up enough contemporary flair to make it interesting. I really hope somewhere Johnny Depp is preparing to make a movie for these songs... ...If you're a jaded music lover who is tired of knowing where a song is going before the first chorus is finished, you'll love the subtle musical surprises in this album. The music is just familiar enough to lull you into a practiced enjoyment, then, WHAM, you realize that the stagecoach lurched left where you thought it would turn right, and all the listener can say is "damn".”
