James McMurtry continues to come up with interesting slice-of-life vignettes, like "You'd a' Thought (Leonard Cohen Must Die)," that take a scalpel and slash around in the innards of relationships more Jerry Springer than Oprah. On swampy rockers like "Turtle Bayou," McMurtry connects once again with the violent underbelly of life in the rural margins, where law enforcement is thin and outlaws are just the lay of the land. "Just Us Kids" connects with another longtime McMurtry theme, small-town boredom and ennui. Bring earplugs because McMurtry is one of the loudest acts around.
