Stephen King Names Zoysia as One of His Top Albums of 2006

Stephen King, author and obvious aficionado of fine music, has named the Bottle Rockets' Zoysia as one of his top ten favorite albums of 2006 in this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly! The master of modern horror has this to say about the album:

"The Bottle Rockets are often categorized as alt-country — by people who need categories — but what they really are is America's premier bar band. Zoysia (I don't know what it means either) is their best album ever — tuneful, soulful, and best of all, loud. Primo cuts: 'Better Than Broken, 'Feeling Down.'"

His entire top ten list is viewable on the Entertainment Weekly site here.
