The album sounds the most Isbellish on the country colored A New Man that sounds an outtake from Isbells Something More Than Free. Ritter also gets more politically pointed than is typical for him. As barbed as All Some Kind of Dream is, with references to children in holding pens and hours when we took them in, its all softened by a sunshiny folk melody that conjures up John Denver in a buckskin fringe jacket. But on the other side of that coin, the more cryptic and ominous The Torch Committee hits its intended mark. Though some may not take to the tone, the procedural gibberish that Ritter so staidly recites brings back a Red Scare squeamishness of man vs government. A time when manufactured evidence was so stacked against an individual as to make the glimmer of hope an ever dimming light. Juxtaposing that dark stain against todays political landscape becomes the nightmare we dont want to recur but might be living. No doubt Ritter covers a lot of ground, both in sound and content, on Fever Breaks. Its as if given the chance to front a band of The 400 Units caliber he wanted to make sure he touched all the bases. Even if Fever Breaks may not be a grand slam, its still the musical equivalent of a seasoned veteran hitting a shot where from the crack of the bat there is no doubt that the ball is going to clear the fence.
