Editorial Review

When country-rock icon Steve Earle teamed with blazing bluegrass act the Del McCoury Band, the result was more invigoratingly intense than even die-hard fans could have imagined. These energetic songs somehow sound innovative and timeless at the same time, merging the finest, first-person-narrated politico tunes of Springsteen or Dylan with the plaintive, hard-driving mountain wails of the Stanley Brothers and Bill Monroe. Whew. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Timless
"My primary motive in writing these songs," Steve wrote in a press release for this disc, "was both selfish and ambitious--immortality. I wanted to write just one song that would be performed by at least one band at every bluegrass festival in the world long after I have followed Mr. Bill [Monroe] out of this world." The songs certainly should pass that test. The hillbilly murder ballad "Carrie Brown" is one classic; "Dixieland" is another; and the closing "Pilgrim"--which most reviewers singled out for praise--is yet another. That said, for me The Mountain peaks with "I'm Still In Love with You," a duet with Iris DeMent that sounds--like the rest of the album--that it could have been recorded 30, 40 years ago. In other words, it's timeless. "Does it show when my poor heart skips a beat each and every time we meet?" Steve sings, and then there's Iris' vocal, that Kentucky waif-like wail that's the audio equivalent of wine: The more you hear it, the more you like it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for an album without drums
It's hard to imagine an artist slipping so seamlessly into a genre that it sounds like he created it, but Steve Earle pulls it off. I would encourage everyone to buy it despite their probable fears that it's going to be one of those unlistenable country records. It's great music, and it's very hard and gritty. The songs are top notch, and I think he wrote them all. A pretty impressive statement from Steve Earle.

Editorial Review

Chris Isaak managed to turn his videogenic visage and brooding masculinity to his advantage in a big way, becoming a sort of MTV-era cross between James Dean and Elvis. Heady stuff, but don't hate him because he's beautiful. In fact, Isaak had been plying his trademark latter-day rockabilly sound for some years before the inclusion of "Wicked Game" in the David Lynch film Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Pop
This is a perfect pop album, something that is extremely rare and to be treasured when discovered. There isn't a weak track on it, and almost every song is an evocative and well crafted gem. Age has not dulled any of its charms.If you're a fan of well crafted pop, this is a must have. I completely recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really unique in the musical world
Most folks compare Chris Isaak to Roy Orbison and/or Elvis P., but Mr. Isaak's music as shown in this CD is so much more than that.All of the songs on this CD defy comparison to other songs, and to dismiss them as "rockabilly" or just a Roy Orbison imitation is very superficial.The songwriting and arrangements are really so very good, with the echoey guitars creating the perfect mood. The songs even sound different than most anything else recorded.Compare the guitars and backgrounds in "Wrong to Love You" with just about anything else you have ever listened to, and you will see what I mean.The guitar work in "Forever Young" also sounds just too crisp, too effective, too perfect to be real.It is truly unfortunate that whatever was done on this CD was not repeated in later efforts, because this CD will be listened to 100 years from now.It is hard for me to give 5 star ratings to anything, but no kidding...if you like this kind of music, this is a 5, hands down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Isaak rocks!
This is one of my favorite albums.Chris Isaak's seductive vocals and bluesy/ rock n roll sound is always a favorite.His influences range from Elvis to Roy Orbison and they are extremely evident in his vocal style, overall sound and sometimes cover choices. I love the slow, smoky, seductive ballads like "wicked game" from david lynch's wild at heart, "blue spanish sky", "don't make me dream about you" and "heart shaped world" I also love the animalistic and deeply intense "in the heat of the jungle" and the slow burn of "King's of the highway".Isaak's cover of "diddley daddy" also rocks. a 5 star winner. everybody should own this album. it is one of my favorites. ...

I'm in agreement with the good reviews here that focus on songwriting, but keep in mind that the band is slammin'! This is music you canlisten to without even knowing what the lyrics are.

5-0 out of 5 stars This One's On My Eternal Playlist
I have all James McMurtry's albums, have seen him several times over various releases, and this is still the acme for me.This album continues to resonate after all these years.When my Ipod hits a song from this album in its shuffle I invariably turn the volume up.This is a beautiful album, but one that does not take a cheery view of life. These are not songs that will make you smile or brighten your day. McMurtry's world is populated with the desperate, the failed, and those just hanging on.The songs "Down Across the Delaware", "Levelland", "One More Winter", and "Where'd You Hide the Body" are so lovely and so bleak. And if you are ever driving across west Texas, this is part of the soundtrack you need to play (see also Terry Allen and Jimmie Dale Gilmore). Give a listen to a great singer-songwriter and his best album (so far).

5-0 out of 5 stars They Don't Understand Me...In Levelland
That about sums up McMurtry's angst and maybe why he writes such soulful lyrics. Levelland might be McMurtry's best song ever. The lyrics are outstanding. Other standout songs by McMurtry are 'No More Buffalo' and 'Peter Pan' on 'It Had To Happen'. This is a must have CD for someone getting into McMurtry and one of the best to start with for someone new to McMurtry. You might want to get this second after getting 'It Had To Happen'. ...

Melissa Etheridge's considerable talents as writer/singer/performer have often seemed confounded by expectations--the artist having burdened herself with more than a few of them.

3-0 out of 5 stars BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME!
I'm a huge fan of all Melissa Etheridge's stuff but, this album just doesn't cut it.It's dissappointing both lyrically and musically.I rarely listen to this cd.I give it 3 stars because I do like In This Moment, When You Find The One, Giant, Secret Agent and Meet Me In The Dark.However, nothing on this album could ever possibly top her previous efforts such as Bring Me Some Water, Ain't It Heavy, It's For You, Come To My Window, Yes I Am, Breakdown, Stronger Than Me, The Different, Lover Please, the list goes on and on.I think I like Melissa better when she's a little bitter, jaded and out of love!Better LUCK next time!

Editorial Review

Brought to the attention of Columbia Records by a fluke--John Mellencamp was friends with the artist's father, noted author Larry McMurtry--James McMurtry proved himself more than worthy of a record deal, despite such family and industry connections, with his debut album. He backed up his keen sense for lyrical detail with deft, sturdy musicianship, whether picking through delicate numbers such as "Crazy Wind" and "Song for a Deck Hand's Daughter" or delivering anthemic roots rockers such as "Painting by Numbers" and "I'm Not from Here." With an appropriately desolate, deadpan vocal delivery, McMurtry tells tales of desperate small-town characters, painting a vivid picture of an America that lurks far from the bright lights and big cities.

5-0 out of 5 stars McMurtry the 'Word Man'
You don't remember Dylan's melodies as much as his words. 'Gargling in the rat race choir' ? Well, McMurtry is a North Texas Bob Dylan, even more than Oklahoma's Jimmy LaFave. He is one of those artists that hasn't made a bad song; because, every song's words make you think. I own every CD, except the new live one. If you like one CD, you will like them all.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful album - I can listen to it as I drive for days..
I bought this album on the recommendation of a friend and boy am I glad I did! The lyrics are poignant and yet work. You can tell that he inherited his dad's ('Lonesome Dove' author Larry McMurtry) ability to mold and use the English language. But the great thing is that the music is just as good as the lyrics - you'd be singing along even if the words were meaningless.
4-0 out of 5 stars Too Long In Obscurity
I agree with the sentiment expressed by another reviewer that if radio programmers had any imagination, James McMurtry would be a superstar. But, to borrow a line from one of McMurty's songs, the programmers 'work from the neck down', they 'don't call the shots'.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best movie soundtracks...
This CD contains four Bob Dylan songs, so how can you go wrong? I initially bought this disc for "Things Have Changed", which is a great song, but was instantly impressed with "Shooting Star" which I had never heard before but liked instantly. It was great to hear Dylan play harmonica on a newer song. This soundtrack is a showcase for songwriters: Van Morrison, Neil Young, Tom Rush, and Leonard Cohen are all featured. The really great thing was that some blues/R&B songs were thrown in for good measure. The Clarence Carter and Little Willie John classics make this a VERY enjoyable collection. This is one of the best movie soundtracks out there and contains NO filler. If you like good music you will like this.

5-0 out of 5 stars great collection for grown-ups...
Great movie and a great soundtrack! This is actually a great collection for grown-ups...Van Morrison, John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, Clarence Carter, Little Willie John, Tim Hardin, Neil Young, Tom Rush, Buffalo Springfield, and four songs by Bob Dylan including the Oscar winning "Things Have Changed". It's also made of all strong album cuts...the only two hits being "Old Man" and "Watching The Wheels".

5-0 out of 5 stars Indulge in your 80s nostalgia
It's obvious from the long list of reviews that purists will quibble over which tracks from which artists represent their quintessential 80ness. But us ordinary folks, who just want a cross-section of the playlist from the alternate radio station we listened to in the 80s, won't care nearly as much. If you like a particular artist from this selection (and there are 82, so you probably do), you probably have several albums by that band or performer. I know I do.
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent listening for '80s music junkies
This is a very comprehensive collection of all the "unheard" classics of 80's alternative/underground music scene. I use "unheard" in quotes because many of the songs were heard on college radio, independent music stations, etc. I was surprised by the inclusion of a few songs ("Message of Love" by Pretenders and "Ways To Be Wicked" by Lone Justice) as I wasn't too sure how "underground" they really were. I'm sure some more mainstream stations played them. But anyway it was really good to hear the Lone Justice song again after so many years. And I was REALLY pleased with the inclusions of "Swamp Thing" by The Chameleons and "When Love Breaks Down" by Prefab Sprout.
5-0 out of 5 stars The music that really matters.
I bought this box set when it first came out and it still holds a prominent place on my shelf and on my iPod.Broad blanket statements are often useless, but in this case, they apply: This box is the best collection of 80s college rock/alternative rock for your money.

Editorial Review

The world can never have enough Buddy Holly songs. And as Holly hasn't been around since 1959, the music of Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys performs a public service, as Big Sandy not only channels the pure sincerity of Holly's tenor and the sweet innocence of that musical era, but writes songs such as "Love That Man" and "The Ones You Say You Love" that sound as fresh now as Holly's forever will. Yet Big Sandy and the Boys don't confine themselves to a single genre (neither, for that matter, did Holly and the Crickets), as the roadhouse twang of "The Great State of Misery," the horn-laden, Stax/Volt R&B of "Slipping Away," and the Western swing of "Yes (I Feel Sorry for You)" all combine for the platter party conjured by "The Power of the 45," which opens and closes the album. "Drop the needle in the groove and start to move," the song implores, and it's hard to resist the invitation. Read more

So, all right it's a c-d, but "Turntable Matinee" reminds those of us old enough to remember what it was like to set the needle in the groove and hear something special and not bat an eye at an occasional crackle or pop. This album is fantastic. Most are comparing it to Buddy Holly & the Crickets. There's some truth to that, but I'm hearing some Nick Lowe & Rockpile in there too. This album has a great "live" feel to it. I'm already looking to see what club they'll be coming to in my area.

"My heart's a little ragged but it's all that I got...." (excerpt from track #8 called "Comin' Around").Steve Earle the artist is also a little ragged: his boots and voice -both- caked with dirt, and yet his voice is strong and ringing and it's a powerful tool to sound his concerns.And he does so convincingly in this album.The gravel in his voice makes you feel the lyrics...you know he's been down a road or two and that he's really wanting to say something about it.

3-0 out of 5 stars No Crossroads Duel, No Problem
I see that most of the reviewers for this record are disappointed that the Cooder-Vai duel didn't appear on the soundtrack album.That's understandable.But for me, that was better experienced as video.Personally I think the high point of the soundtrack, and the movie for that matter, was the electric guitar bottleneck piece "Feelin' Bad Blues".It is fantastic.It sounds like the guitar may be accompanied by a hammer dulcimer toward the end.I played this for a young guy I work with who is a heavy metal fan and is just discovering the blues.He got wide-eyed.

All of the best cuts from this movie are actually located on Steve Vai's CD entitled "The Elusive Light and Sound". It is a very excellent CD, and has over 40 tracks on it. Thats all, Thanks.

Good sountrack, and while I think that the idea was to lean towards blues on this release, some of the best music from the movie isn't on this release.To get that you need the movie DVD, and though I have no complaints in seeing the movie to get hear these tracks, it would have been nice to have them included on the soundtrack. ...

Editorial Review

Those mean streets sound awfully clean on the latest from veteran bard Willie Nile, who here exchanges his raucous rock from the early 1980s for a more tempered approach that prizes poetry over punch. Though the songwriting remains as heartfelt as ever, with plenty of literary flourish, antiseptic arrangements all but drain the propulsion from "Welcome to My Head" and "Best Friends Money Can Buy," while the slow build of "Faded Flower of Broadway" flirts with power-ballad mawkishness. The epic narrative of the autobiographical "Back Home" and the harmonic-laced "Lonesome Dark-Eyed Beauty" find Nile giving his best Bob Dylan impression (Dylan's son Jakob, of the Wallflowers, guests elsewhere on the album), though the title track edges closer to Billy Joel territory. Only the heart-pumping urgency of "Whole World with You" and the feverish cover of Eddy Grant's "Police on My Back" (in homage to the Clash) show Nile really letting it rip as he as in the past.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Unknown Classic
Once again, I have to thank LeAnn Hansen of NPR for turning me onto this album.Willie was one of the proto-punk artists that New York seemed to churn out in the late 70's thru the early 80's.He disappeared and I forgot all about him.Then i heard his interview and acoustic performanace of "The Day I Saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square" and I immediately ordered this disc.For that one song alone, this disc is worth the money.I ahve spent years walking and sometimes working in the Village and he captures the messy artistry of that part of New york perfectly.
5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous
Thanks to the great listening stations at Tower Records on Broadway/67th in Manhattan NY, I found this album.This will be an instant classic in my collection.Absolutely fabulous.A must have for any music lover.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Album Is Really Brilliant, Perhaps the Best of 2006!!!!
Willie Nile has released what may very well be the best (albeit unknown) record of the year. Right from the opening intro this record, for lack of a better expression, kicks ass! "Welcome to my Head" may very well be the best openiing song I have ever heard on an album (it will prbably be his signature opening much as "Start Me Up" is for the Stones). Right from there your attention is held as each track filters through your head with brilliant melodies, intelligent lyrics, and great musicianship. This all culminates with the haunting title track, "Streets of New York". I grew up there and I can close my eyes and he takes me there as though I have never left. It actually makes me homesick. "Streets of New York" is nothing short of brilliant. Buy this record, you will not regret it! ... Read more

Having apprenticed with '60s band Kippington Lodge and '70s pub-rock pioneers Brinsley Schwarz, Nick Lowe became a shining beacon of traditional pop values--wit, concision, unbanishable tunes--amidst the punk furor of the late '70s. This collection is a generous 25-song single-CD selection from eight albums and a few stray singles spanning almost a decade. It may be too generous--the inclusion of a number of so-so songs and failed experiments hampers its playability. But there are still well over a dozen gems here, including his sole hit, the sparkling, textbook classic-pop masochist's anthem "Cruel to Be Kind;" the ominous voodoo breakdown "Cracking Up;" and the delightfully perverse "Marie Provost," a sumptuous power-pop tune affixed to the horrific tale of a silent-film actress who dies alone and is eaten by her starving dog. There are also at least two songs exploring Lowe's strange obsession with backstage guest lists (first single "So It Goes" and the stately "Little Hitler"), the best version of the pub-rock classic "Switchboard Susan" (containing every conceivable phone/sex double entendre), and a number of crisp rockers abetted by Rockpile, the brilliant band that, credited or not, played on much of members Lowe and Dave Edmunds's best work.

5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic compilation
This cd does a great job in sampling Nick Lowe. I was a fan of the Rockpile, Jesus of Cool and Labor of Lust albums (the 70's work). This compilation effectively takes the cream from all of the works and crams them onto a comprehensive work. There is a lot of music here. Before I bought this, I was only familiar w/the 70's work but now I have just as much of an appreciation for the 80's and 90's stuff as well. This cd does what a good compilation should do...give an overview of all the work, push the familiar and promote the new stuff.

Last Halloween I was out to see local (Minneapolis) band Revolver Modele and when we got to theVenue (Varisty Club), there was this black guy doing dj work to get the crowd in the mood for a night of music.
2-0 out of 5 stars Hate when CD versions delete selections from the original LP!
Business as usual: There are selections missing from the original double LP edition. "Long Walk Home", one of the best instrumentals I've ever heard with a neat 50s sound, it's gone! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Though three-fifths of this Texas band was formerly in Slobberbone, there isn't a speck of slobber amid the sonic sheen of the new incarnation's debut. Instead, frontman Brent Best now positions his sound at the high-gloss juncture of arena rock and power pop, with barely a nod toward the roadhouse dive. With Slobberbone's drummer Tony Harper and guitarist Jess Barr reuniting with Best, two new recruits--keyboardist Chad Stockslager and bassist Keith Killoren, both from Dallas's Budapest One--bolster the harmonies and the arrangements.While it's difficult to resist the hard-driving uplift of "Hummalong" and "Unhinged," the power balladry of "Holy Moses" and "Wonderous Life" (both approaching seven minutes) might have packed twice the punch with half the bloat. Elsewhere, the country tinge of "Fireflies" comes close to the Eagles, the elaborate production of "You Won't Forget" (with synthesized strings, cloying harmonies, and a brass arrangement) veers from Beatles into ELO territory, and "Des Moines" sounds like a generic lovelorn road song.In terms of aural precision, it's hard to fault the production of Matt Pierce, but the album almost begs for an editor.

As a huge Slobberbone fan I was deeply saddened to hear they had called it quits. When I read about the new lineup of the band and the new music, it sounded interesting. Well, it doesn't sound interesting, in fact, it kind of sounds like the Partridge Family.

2-0 out of 5 stars a real dive...
As I type this review, the Drams are playing live about 2 miles from my apartment in Atlanta.Why am I not there?Well, I had planned to be.I was stoked to hear about this new band and this new record, having been a DIEHARD Slobberbone and Brent Best fan.Well, I died hard.Out of pure excitement, I ordered tickets to tonight's show prior to the record's release.After ten attempts at trying to even begin to sorta *like* this disc, I decided to stay home and eat the ticket cost.The record is clean pop rock.And I'm not mourning the loss of the fiddle and the banjo.There is none of Best's growled delivery.Little of the honest and powerful hooks that made Slobberbone great.The production is junk.Best's suddenly clean voice is buried in the music and the harmonies are flat and whiny.And the hooks are so weak they're almost non-existant.Other than that, it's superb.Suffice it to say that there's quite a bit of disappointment here.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST AT HIS BEST
BEING A SLOBBERBONE FAN AND READING EARLY REVIEWS THAT ALL THE TWANG WAS GONE AND THIS IS PURE POP SCARED ME A LITTLE.BUT ONCE YOU LET THESE AWESOME MELODIES SINK IN YOU REMEMBER WHAT A GREAT SONGWRITER BRENT BEST IS.HE HAS A WAY OF MARRYING LYRICS & MELODY LIKE NO OTHER.ALSO LOVE THE SUBTLE KEYBOARD RUNS THROUGH OUT THE DISC,NOT TO MENTION THE TASTY GUITAR WORK.I KNOW SOME DIE HARD SLOBBERBONE FANS WILL BE DISAPPOINTED BUT REALLY LISTEN TO THESE SONGS.THIS IS 67MIN OF PURE JOY ...

Editorial Review

Many alternative-rock fans considered Camper Van Beethoven an important band, but I wasn't among them. Guitarist/vocalist David Lowerey always seemed smarmy and ridiculously happy with his own cleverness. Lowrey's new band, Cracker, has the potential to be even more annoying, since the quartet places the spotlight solely on its leader and songwriter, but its self-titled 1992 debut was a strong effort with a smart, infectious single ("Teen Angst"), and Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, start to finish
I bought this album as part of a reduced price deal cause I liked one of the hidden tracks "Eurotrash Girl"Well after a couple of listens I had to admit this was an undeniably great album.In fact, I have bought everything Cracker has ever put out since, they really are a great band that just knows how to write great songs.You will not be disappointed with this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A real gem!
in my opinion, Cracker is one of the most underappreciated bands from the 90's.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cracker, the best thing since white bread.
Despite the fact that I've liked Camper Van Beethoven for 16 years, and this was released in 1993, I just picked up "Kerosene Hat" recently. Great album. Cracker is a band who can do the punk or country thing, and usually both at the same time. "Low" will probably always be their biggest hit, and I still hear it on the radio daily. "Get Off This" had some minor success, and is a good song, and I really like their cover of the Grateful Deads "Loser". "Take Me Down To The Infirmary" and "Sick Of Goodbyes" are both enjoyable too. The best part is, if you can't find it used for 8 bucks someplace, it's currently only that much new right here. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rarities...an absolute gem
Great album, bringing together three of the great songwriter-poets of our time, who along with Blaze Foley constitute a world unto themselves. They got together to perform this benefit for a Dental Clinic! Townes even comments that he can't get dental (or any) insurance. All three are tight and brilliant, but the most heart rendering songs in this collection belong to Guy. The man is a treasure - he plays one of those guitars that he made himself (yes!!), it sounds beautiful..the same care and thoughtfulness is present in the songs..buy this...today!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Was at the show and the DVD is a good reproduction
While nothing will ever come close to the experience of being there, the DVD did a pretty good job of capturing the moment. As snap shot in history, the summer of 1990. The Belin wall had just come down the previous November. On July 1st, for the first time since the wall went up, East and West Belin could freely cross the "Wall", Check Point Charlie was out of a job. This concert took place in Potsdam Platz, only months earlier, this was no man's land. You could be shot for being there. On this night in July, the world was finally at peace (Iraq would invade Kuwait two weeks later), I was standing in a crowd with Germans, English, French and countless other nationalities. We were all there taking in one of he greatest stages ever contructed for a concert. Roger Waters did it proud, to compare it to Pink Floyd's the Wall conerts (which I saw in Nassua Colisium in 1979) would be unfair. This concert was more than just the music and show, it was about a time in history. "Tear Down The Wall!!" it was already coming down. To watch the DVD, brings these memories streaming back and in these troubled times, is comforting to know that at one time peace was achieved.

2-0 out of 5 stars A miss version of The Wall without Pink Floyd
Roger Waters' The Wall in Berlin was released in September of 1990.
5-0 out of 5 stars It's Not Pink Floyd But It's The Next Best Thing
Not having been a big Roger Waters fan, this DVD changed my whole attitude and opinion of Roger Waters.This DVD/CD may not be Pink Floyd, but it sure is the next best thing.I thoroughly enjoyed this DVD.I had viewed Roger Waters as a whining, moaning, groaning, and complaining child who just wanted to have something to cry about.After seeing this DVD, that all changed.He was so cool, calm, and collected in this DVD and so relaxed.I was impressed with the way he shared the spotlight with other musicians and didn't cop an attitude by self-centeredness, selfishness, and egotism.I think he had the idea of performing this version of The Wall the same way Pink Floyd did the live version of The Wall.It was superbly done.All the musicians were superb especially Cyndi Lauper and Bryan Adams.You can always tell Cyndi even if you don't hear her because of her eccentricities.If you're not a Roger Waters fan or if you have doubts about him, check out The Wall: Live In Berlin and his other live album In The Flesh.I can guarantee you will have a change of heart.My friend gave me a copy of this DVD and after seeing it, I was totally blown away by the performance and came away with a different attitude toward Roger Waters.I was so impressed with this DVD/CD and the In The Flesh DVD I had to order the CDs.I do not regret it for a minute.I would highly recommend both these albums for any Pink Floyd or Roger Waters fan.You won't regret it!

5-0 out of 5 stars R-0-C-K With Mellencamp!A Damn Good Collection!
To say this is a masterpiece is a vast understatement.This is truly one of the best collections ever recorded in the mid 1980s.Mellencamp ROCKS!
5-0 out of 5 stars Scarecrow is an old favorite
Scarecrow has now joined the small group of select albums that I have owned on vinyl, cassette, and also CD.For me only the old, long-standing favorites are worth buying three times.Thanks to the modern gift of digitally remastered recording, today's version of Scarecrow sounds better than ever before.
5-0 out of 5 stars One Of John Mellencamp's Best Albums Ever
SCARECROW is one of John Mellencamp's (or, as he was known at the time, John Cougar Mellencamp) best albums ever, along with UH-HUH, THE LONESOME JUBILEE, and WHENEVER WE WANTED. With this album, Mellencamp's lyrics bespeak a need to atone for past mistakes, even as he sees the nation falling apart around him. The themes of this album (disenfranchisement, economic loss) are, alas, even more relevant twenty years after the album first came out. Mellencamp's belief that the young Australian tourist jailed in Indonesia on drug-smuggling charges was unjustly convicted makes this CD an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience. ...

Editorial Review

The third solo album by the former V-Roys frontman combines the storytelling of a Tennessee troubadour with the reckless soul of a diehard rocker. It's been a long time since even Bruce Springsteen has recorded an anthem as Springsteenesque as the opening "Freedom's a Stranger," with a hard-twanging cover of Neil Young's "Hawks and Doves" (timely once again) also showing Miller's affinity for rock classicism. The country romp through "Say Ho" provides an impromptu history lesson on Sam Houston, while the solo acoustic closer, "Long Goodnight," is likely the bleakest lullaby you'll ever hear. Across the range of musical territory that Miller covers, he combines an expressively reedy voice with an eye for significant detail. This project plainly found a kindred spirit in legendary producer Jim Dickinson (patriarch of the North Mississppi Allstars, with sideman credits from the Rolling Stones to Ry Cooder), who has long shown a preference for first-take immediacy and passion over polish.On "Still People Are Moving," the song begins as midtempo ballad and accelerates with the supercharged propulsion of a runaway train.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Enjoying -- succeeds on all levels
When something resonates on a simple, level, but shows depth with time, it is a treat.Scott Miller has grown.This is great music -- so basic, simple and accessible at first glance, but with complex flavors that continue to reveal themselves with time.It can keep pleasing you in different ways and refreshing itself.Miller is so seamless in his mixing of styles that you might miss the richness.His gifts with language are well honed, and the things he chooses to share with us are worth engaging.Beyond that, the pacing and spacing of the songs and flavors is just plain tasty.This stuff is sooooo deeply good - and Miller makes it look so easy that you might miss it if you don't take the time to notice what's going on.There's an artist at Work -- don't miss out.

5-0 out of 5 stars This one looks you in the eye
Scott Miller writes and plays like a seasoned veteran in what is an extremely complex presentation of heart, soul, and sweat.Smokin' hot.I see dead people when I hear `The Only Road...' homage to the Minor Chord so full of angst, despair, longing and a generations' lost innocence that I find myself practically in mourning after each spin.That one's a single with attitude.My bourgeois favorite has to be 'Eight Miles a Gallon' and its no-nonsense rock and roll, but I found a much deeper appreciation of `Still People Are Moving,' the tribute to American hero Sam Houston (`Say Ho'), 'Wild Things,' 'On a Roll,' and 'Long Goodnight.'Stunning and powerful.
5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars Is The Easy Part
I love the attitude of this record.There were signs of it in Thus Always To Tyrants and Upside Downside, but Citation drives it home.From the opening notes of "Freedom Was A Stranger", this CD pulls you in.Scott uses dynamics in this record to help drive home all the important points.In a day and age when artists are out there protesting everything from the President to Colonel Sanders, it was refreshing to hear a real protest.A protest of the people who have fed you full of s**t all your life, from your best friend who steals your girl while you are deployed overseas (listen to "Jody") to the halls of congress who slings enough bulls**t to power a big engine designed to run on it (listen to "8 Miles A Gallon").Perhaps the best protest is the album itself which seems to protest getting older.5 Stars was the easy part for me.Taking the CD out of my player has proven to be the hard part. ...
