Siblings Abe, James and Sam Wilson — better known as alternative country trio Sons of Bill — blew me away with their last album, 2012’s flawless “Sirens,” so I had high hopes for fourth full-length “Love & Logic.” Well I’m happy to report that the brothers Wilson exceed my highest expectations on a 10-track release that surpasses its remarkable predecessor.

Sons Of Bill CDIt was a collaborative effort from the outset on “Love & Logic” for Sons of Bill, with the three brothers splitting lead vocals equally and co-writing all the songs. The Wilsons (plus pals Seth Green on bass and Todd Wellons on drums) once again navigate the fine line between country and rock.

Opener “Big Unknown” sets the tone and Sons of Bill show off their pop/rock leanings on “Brand New Paradigm,” another keeper. Additional standouts include “Fishing Song,” “Higher Than Mine,” “Light a Light” and the set-closing title track. My favorite track is “Lost in the Cosmos,” a hauntingly lovely tribute to Big Star’s Chirs Bell. This one’s a winner. (Jeffrey Sisk)
