Blue Mountain's MIDNIGHT IN MISSISSIPPI features songs called "Groove Me" and "70s Song," and a neater summation of the album's sound cannot be found. Smooth, mellow country rock with just a little twang, MIDNIGHT IN MISSISSIPPI is a bit slicker in approach than this long-running alt-country band's early albums, closer in spirit to Firefall than to Wilco. But this newly retro approach is so cleverly incorporated into husband-and-wife Cary Hudson and Laurie Stirratt's songs that it never sounds awkward or forced. The smooth, Eagles-like harmonies and lush string arrangements on tracks like "Pretty Please" sound like a loving re-creation of the glory days of California soft rock, while more uptempo songs like "Emily Smiles" hew closer to the Mississippi band's alt-country roots.
