Set on making his dead-end dump-road mysteries even more mysterious, J.D. Wilkes grumbles through his spittle far beneath all the old-timey picking, barbecued blues slide, gospel-tent harmonica stomping, metal-object clanking and spaghetti western whistles. Digging through the murk to figure out the stories about stogie-smoking hobo heroes and crucifixions in 19th century Kentucky takes time. But from the 83-year-old Dock Boggs cover to the opening and closing factory racket, the Shakers -- now beefed up by Jesus Lizard axeman Duane Denison -- keep the death-train locomotion on track.
