Divine Week's Through and Through. I'm not so much referring to the "New Depression" variant of alt-country that was codified by the likes of Uncle Tupelo and Ryan Adams in the early '90s, rather the slightly more vintage iteration championed by Green on Red, and to a lesser extent, Lone Justice. Brimming with twang, heartland fervor, and no shortage of Southern drawl (be it legit or cleverly feigned), Through... cuts an earnest and passionate swath through searing guitar rockers and heavy-handed ballads. A second Divine Weeks platter, Never Get Used to It, surfaced in 1991. As a sidenote, Divine Weeks began life as The Need, who were more in the power pop mold from what I've heard.
