Gov't Mule

Gov’t Mule just wiped the studio clean of any remaining shred of the boy-band era en route to knocking out its latest release. Lead singer Warren Haynes brings his bottomless voice to all 71 minutes of the appropriately titled High & Mighty, including soon-to-be fan favorites “Brand New Angel” and “Nothing Again.”The slightly downtempo “Million Miles from Yesterday” may be the best song on the album. With a gospel chorus backing Haynes, Danny Louis’ bluesy organ underscores the refrain “I’ve got to ?nd my way home.” Some jambands fall prey to the limits of a studio album, but Gov’t Mule seems right at home on High & Mighty, as powerful as ever.
