Eleventh Dream Day - Lived to Tell

Led by husband/wife duo Rick Rizzo (guitar/vocals) and Janet Bean (drums/vocals), Chicago's Eleventh Dream Day kick out the jams with super loud guitars (almost to the point of being shoegaze), boy/girl harmonies and tight grooves. A little less shambolic than Crazy Horse, they remind me a lot of Dinosaur Jr. with more of a roots influence and a better singer. This album is heavy in all the right ways.
