The Road To Torreon is a song cycle about poverty, love and death. The production is spare, and effective in its use of elegant acoustic guitar figures against gentle chord progression. Like an out-west John Prine, Talley gracefully transcends Southwestern glitz and gets right down to the dirt of life in villages of northern New Mexico.
