A review of "Carnival of Sin" by Lynn Routzahn

West Virginia-based Lynn Routzahn puts both the God and the Devil into his bluesy southern ditty "Carnival of Sin." His voice has the deep charisma of a preacher-man, mourning his inability to follow the Light because he operates in the inescapable carnival (of sin). "I'm drowning in the consequences of all my misgivings/ when the gates of Heaven go (??) you won't get in/ I came for consecration, and the hope of sweet deliverance/ but I'm caught up in this Carnival of Sin." It's hard to tell exactly if he regrets this allegiance to the wicked or not...his voice is equal parts sad and light. His only assistant is his rhythmic steel-string guitar which he finger-picks elegantly, keeping the song skipping along beginning to end.

I would add "Carnival of Sin" to a playlist called

Deep South
