Last Train Home kicks off Last Good Kiss with the title cut, a hard luck tale of love gone stale. The band - lead vocalist Eric Brace, bassist Jim Gray, drummer Martin Lynds, guitarist Steve Wedemeyer, keyboardist Jen Gunderman, and trumpeter Kevin Cordt - rocks hard here with a guitar sound reminiscent of the Outlaws. The midtempo "Flood" sustains the somber mood with a soulful chorus and lots of heavy percussion to underline the brooding pace. Brace sings well, delivering these sad songs with easy confidence, and is equally comfortable with both harder country-rock and ballads

Last Train Home is known for its melodic, earnest country-rock. The beginnings of Last Train Home can be traced back to an opening slot for the Waco Brothers in 1997 at the Black Cat club in Washington, . Frontman Eric Brace, who was born in California and raised in the . area (his father was an urban planner), had begun playing live music at Tufts college near Boston with the bluegrass. They eventually called themselves Last Train Home after a song Eric and Jim Greenfield had written in the '80s. When this version of the group disintegrated, Martin Lynds (drums) and Jim Gray (bass) were recruited. Gray had been a bassist with Kelly Willis' first group Kelly & the Fireballs. Scott McKnight rejoined a couple of years later and the group released the album True North in 1999. The band has also recorded songs for tributes to the Blasters and Gene Clark.
