"The five members of the Ontario band Tanglefoot write and sing big, ambitious songs that are heavily influenced by traditional folk music and by the work of Stan Rogers, the late Canadian folk icon. Like Rogers's, most of Tanglefoot's songs have stories to tell. Roll On Jamaica is a ballad about Lady Agnes Macdonald, the second wife of Canada's first prime minister, and how she took in the sights of the Rocky Mountains riding out front in a crate attached to the CPR locomotive's cowcatcher while her husband relaxed in the back in a luxury car. Miners and Mercy tells the story of a 19th century coal miner who's seen most of his children forced to give up childhoods to work in mines or mills. The sound abounds with fiddles, guitars, banjos, accordions, keyboards and rich harmonies." (The Montreal Gazette)
