Darkest Hour (End of the West)
Being a one-man band is akin to being self-employed: There's no one to credit or blame but yourself. Steve Schecter's Ghostwriter is deep and gritty, his voice as guttural and road-worn as his guitar lines. Despite his raw passion, Ghostwriter's third LP is a one-trick, truck-stop pony better enjoyed at Beerland than at home until the banjo change-up on nostalgic closer "Circus."
