Old 97's

I got their Too Far To Care album and really liked it. I also got their Fight Songs album and, it was OK. Not something I'll keep unless after a few more listens it really grows on me. I found TFTC was more rockin' and country-ish and FS is more poppy and mellow. So my question is what other albums by them are more like TFTC?

I'm a huge fan of Old 97s and Too Far to Care in my opinion is by far their best album. The 2 before - Hitchhike to Rhome and Wreck Your Life lean more to the country-roots rock styles while Fight Songs and Satellite Rides are more polished pop. In my experience the newer material takes longer for me to appreciate mostly because I was such a fan of the earlier stuff. They also have an ep called Early Songs which fits in more with their country tunes.

If you like Old 97s I highly suggest a band called Lou Ford.

Man, I love Old 97s. I just saw them twice this past weekend; very good stuff. I really love fight songs and satellite rides. The first is what I got started on, and I just can't abandon it. Songs like "Let the Idiot Speak" and "Oppenheimer" are just too good to ignore.
