History's been kinder to Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy than Mark Olson and Gary Louris, but it's not hard to imagine a world where the opposite holds true. Both groups splintered in the mid-'90s, though Louris forged on with the Jayhawks for three more albums. The band throve on the frisson between Louris and Olson, though, balancing Olson's backwoods predilections with Louris' sharp '60s pop instincts. Without Olson, the Hawks forsook country for less rewarding pop and rock experimentation before returning from a hiatus last year behind a reunited Olson and Louris on Mockingbird Time, an album that rediscovers the old balance. —Chris Parker
