From Garret Woodward at Smoky Mountain News:
••Aaron Lee Tasjan — Crooked River Burning••
The Nashville troubadour is making a much-needed splash up and down the East Coast with his acoustic numbers layered atop a rich rock-n-roll foundation. Tasjan’s words are soaked in spilled whiskey, misunderstood tears and dusty memories. Each number seeps into the cracks of your troubled soul, where names like Paul Simon and James McMurtry come to mind when trying to nail down this record.
Key Tracks: “Don’t Walk Away,” “Drugs and Junk Food,” “Number One”
