Howlin' Rain's third album, "The Russian Wilds" is an out-of-the-box classic. A vintage style double album, it fulfills and expands upon the promise of earlier work, offering up a fundamentally perfect rock 'n' roll song cycle, a humming, utterly alive thing of blood, bone and muscle. There's none of the cheeky obfuscation or clever sonic trickery common amongst modern bands to disguise compositional or musical shortcomings. Howlin' Rain has no need to hide anything, and the confidence, ferocity and artfulness of "The Russian Wilds" harnesses and refines their already justifiably ballyhooed live presence into one of the most powerful, wide-ranging albums of the past few decades, a master work that howls and cries and laughs with gusto and enormous heart.
