Review  by Jason Ankeny
Like Yo La Tengo's Fakebook, the Walkabouts' Satisfied Mind is a definitive artistic statement masquerading as a loose-knit collection of acoustic covers. Sometimes a group's selection of cover material, combined with their ability to make the songs their own, winds up revealing as much about their craft as their original music, and such is the case here; mining the work of diverse artists like the Carter Family, Gene Clark, Mary Margaret O'Hara, John Cale, and Nick Cave, Satisfied Mind represents the purest evocation to date of the Walkabouts' aesthetic and its standing at the crossroads of country, rock, folk, and punk. By casting well-known songs in an entirely new light -- Patti Smith's "Free Money" becomes an ominous waltz, while Charlie Rich's "Feel Like Going Home" is renewed as an epic dirge -- the album makes explicit all of the implicit connections in the Walkabouts' work. By extension, it underlines the connections binding the spectrum of roots music as well; Satisfied Mind doesn't simply suggest that diverse sounds can coexist together -- it proves that they always have.

   ¶  The Walkabouts are a classic example of what is right with postmodern music. Smooth, genuine and subversive, they are one of the best unknown bands Seattle has ever produced. Through a bizarre quirk of fate, they have been one of the hottest US bands in Germany - but they are unavailable on any US label.
¶  Satisfied Mind is driving too fast at dawn on Highway 50 in Nevada, 500 miles from nowhere. It's Burning Man on a spring day. It's music for rockclimbing, glassblowing and any activity where the zen moment is in motion. It's very cool.
