The Crying Tree (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Blood Oranges; Genre: Rock

These Boston cowpunks prove country music isn't bound by geography. Their second album, The Crying Tree, is all Northeastern sass and Southern twang — sort of a hoedown from hell. On ''Miss It All,'' Jim Ryan and Cheri Knight sound like nothing so much as X's John Doe and Exene singing bluegrass in front of Shonen Knife. Put simply, these Oranges have the juice. B+
