Olden is a compilation album by 16 Horsepower, released July 8, 2003. It would be the last record released by 16 Horsepower before their break-up. The album is divided into three sections, with each section separated by two short interviews with David Eugene Edwards, the band's vocalist and lead musician. The first seven tracks were recorded at the Night Owl Studio in Denver in 1993, and are referred to as the "Night Owl Studio sessions.
A 1993 demo blends the bandoneon lead with a twanging Jew's harp, but a version one year later has moved much closer to the hysterical quality of the eventual album version. David Eugene Edwards' vocal similarity to Jeff Buckley is even more apparent during a spare, driving reading of "South Pennsylvania Waltz. Meanwhile, a live take on the Low Estate track "Sac of Religion" (culled from a 1994 date at Denver's Mercury Café) is as desperate as a conductor trying in vain to slow a runaway train.

Sixteen Horsepower is an amazing blend of Alternative Rock, Americana, Goth, and Punk. This band from Denver combines vocals that are part goth, part punk, and part Cold Mountain-like Americana with tripy strings, anthem-like drums, a haunting piano, and a whole host of traditional instrumentations. The entire mix is a riveting experience is in the category I call Gothic Americana. There is a band playing in the corner; this is Sixteen Horsepower's Olden. The amazing thing is that this is not a coherent studio album, but a collection from their first ten years of existence. You might never know it from listening as it is one long trip into the heart of darkness that is southern gothic. These songs are at the same time haunting and darkly spiritual. Sixteen Horsepower are the darker side of belief revealed.
