To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Listened to a few songs of his on the youtubes & liked them, especially the tiny desk set. Anyway got the album & gave it a listen. Solid but it didn't blow me away. I think i might prefer his live sound. As for the album it was good quality (180g) vinyl with a good dust jacket & flat as a pancake. 1/2/18 Changed my mind. This is quality song writing & musicianship & I wholeheartedly recommend this album both musically & for the quality of the pressing.
It's been a slow burner for me, this one, and I still don't think it reaches the heights of the previous Jason Isbell albums. I skip Cumberland Gap. Last Of My Kind and Tupelo are the standout tracks, and being at the beginning, it seems as if the album struggles in the latter half.
It's a good enough album, but there are no tracks like Children Of Children that make you stop what you are doing, find a place to play it five times over before reaching for the whiskey bottle and diving into other country baggage, only to emerge the next day to find the dinner you were cooking yesterday is still half prepared on the chopping board in the kitchen. There are none of those songs here, but maybe next time there will be.
