sound just like modern FM-country should sound like. It is all
about a sonic picture as bright as the northern summer nights
as well as a few sprinkles from the best 60’s pop.
The title track ’Runaway’ paves the way with a strike
that lasts all the way. Here is experience, skilled musicians
and a will to offer the epicure what the epicure wants."
..., the result is a most pleasing country-rock which can be best
described as tones in a direct line from the Eagles, before Joe
Walsh and a few others took over after Bernie Leadon. Thus, the
result is melodic and very warm music, freshly blended with a
foundation of steelguitar, guitars and drums.
this is why it is of such high quality. This is something that
has not been done under stress.
The duet ’Time’ with Tony Björkenvall of Willy
Clay Band quickly becomes a favourite as well as the opening track
Mind the Country’ is skillful workmanship and a fantastic
car-record which grows by each listening.

The Howard Way is a country-rockband
from Umeå with a great deal of rock in their country without
leaning towards the greasiness of heartaches and heartbreaks.
The precence of elegantly adorning pedal steel guitar does a lot
for the whole picture. You just have to spread your wings and
soar over the delta. It’s so neat!
Vocalist Thomas Hellgren has a shiver-evoking voice, drummer Pelle
Henricsson, who has produced more music on an international level
than any one else from Västerbotten, beats the skins and
metal relaxed yet cuttingly. This I demand to hear live!
