On The Civil Wars’s second album when the power of the duo comes sharply into focus, a near-psychic link is expressed as vocal mirroring and glued together harmonies. It’s there on tracks; Devil’s Backbone, Tell Mama, I Had Me a Girl – two voices in perfect unison conjuring up something primal and magical, and, apparently, due to the turbulent personal life of the band, never to be heard again. There have been many great break-up albums before, but the relationship in question is usually romantic, not professional. The Civil Wars offers up 12 perfectly elegant, subtly arranged Americana songs of bad love, misplaced emotion, cheating hearts, fighting and fleeing, and it makes for a brilliant listen.
