Three guitar players, a couple of singers, bass, drums, piano, harmonica, mandolin and maybe you. With so many now caught up in country, and past glories always waiting to be discovered, it's hard to figure out who gets your time, but the ten-strong Bray Vista deserve it. Seven tracks that walk the line between heartbreak and high spirits and with vocal twangs that don't sound too affected.

You'll be humming opening showdown 'The Last High Noon' plenty but the class of 'Say Goodbye', where it sounds like they age 30 years as the sadness grows stronger, would make even the loneliest keep coming back. Who would've thought the West could start at the end of the DART line?
