About the Album

Joy Williams and John Paul White aren't a couple, but they certainly sound like they're in love, singing together with the sort of familiarity that only seems to exist between couples and siblings. On Barton Hollow, their studio debut as the Civil Wars, the two trace each other's melodies with close harmonies that never fail to lose their romance, even on breakup tunes like "Falling." It's an organic, folk-pop sound not unlike the one made by the Swell Season, another boy/girl duo with a talent for making heartbreaking Americana. If the Civil Wars are America's answer to that band, then "Poison & Wine" is their "Falling Slowly." An aching, gorgeous tribute to a relationship on the rocks, it's one of the few tracks to include more than an acoustic guitar, with some piano and soft drums also making their way into the mix. Even so, the focus remains on the band's vocals, which are easily the best instruments on Barton Hollow. Those who don't like rootsy ballads are in for some slim pickings, since Barton Hollow shines its brightest whenever the tempos slow, the lights dim, and the voices rise up. But the title track, with its outlaw lyrics and swanky Southern groove, is a nice change from the norm, and "I've Got This Friend" finds a balance between both camps. Good stuff. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love The Civil Wars I got this CD about 4 months ago and still listening to it every where I go! Amazing voices! Can not wait for them to make more Albums. 06/05/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great music Bought this after hearing Civil Wars perform on Austin City Limits program. 01/01/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Musical Soulmates at their best! I was introduced to ONE song by The Civil Wars called Barton Hollow and from there I knew I had to buy the cd. Once I listened to all the tracks, I knew I made the right choice to buy it. Their voices are absolutely wonderful and make the perfect match to sing the songs that they do. The only thing was I could only find this online and not in stores (price is not bad). Buy it!!! 06/06/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Had to buy it after I saw them perform on TV. This is not usually the music genre I listen to but I saw them perform on a late night show and bought their CD within minutes of seeing them perform. Their CD is great and I recommend it to everyone. 05/12/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellant! I fell in love with them when i first heard them sing. When I purchased this cd i expected that i'd like maybe 2 or 3 songs and i was fine with that for the price. What surprised me is how much i loved every song on this cd. Their voices compliment each other perfectly. Its wonderful. Buy it! 09/10/2012
