From the End of Your Leash (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jun 22, 2004; Lead Performance: Bobby Bare Jr.'s Young Criminals' Starvation League

By pedigree, Bare Jr. gets tagged as alt-country, but the label seldom fits. His nifty little signature sound is actually an arch folk-pop based in acoustic guitars and brushes on snares, sometimes driven into rock by, of all things, a sax section. But the No Depression set will adore ''Visit Me in Music City,'' a lovingly sarcastic ode to a Nashville where the ''greatest living guitar pickers can deliver you a pizza.''
