Carla Olson recorded Midnight Mission with a number of country-rock guest stars -- including Don Henley, Ry Cooder, and Gene Clark -- but the presence of such big-name musicians doesn't dilute the impact of the album at all. In fact, Olson and her backing band the Textones flourish in this setting, creating a tough, energetic, and melodic fusion of country-rock and roots rock. ~ Thom Owens
