American Sunset is a touching track about the downfall of America. There’s a bit of a chiaroscuro between the soulful guitar work and the starkness of the lyrics that Sudano puts forth here. The vocals build upon the folk-rock tradition and carry the same gravitas of an early Bob Dylan or Phil Ochs. The urging of Bruce to bring us back to the halcyon days of the 20th century is a sentiment that is held by a good portion of the country. There needs to be more than just wistful thinking about what we used to be, as Bruce indicates. He’s made a powerful missive here. What will you do?
