Q Magazine
"The most beautiful sad album of the year"

Uncut - Five Stars - Album Of The Month, June 2005
"'The Fitzgerald' is mind-blowing"

Product Description
The follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed "Post To Wire" is a quiet departure from the raucous, visceral send-ups that have made these Portland-based rockers a band to watch. Written at the Fitzgerald Casino in chief songwriter Willy Vlautin's hometown of Reno, this album is a stark collection of songs about the people who live in the shadows of a casino town. It contains the most vivid and compelling songs the band has written to date. It debuted at #13 on the UK Indie Chart in May, and Richmond Fontaine are again experiencing the kind of praise rarely bestowed on any artist.
