Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (6/22/00, pp.134-5) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...An intermittenly twangy, often trippy and, yes, generally transcendant outing....Earle keeps his material hewed to a basic theme - the universality of the blues - and finds that home truth everywhere his muse takes him..."

Spin (7/00, pp.155,157) - 7 out of 10 - "...The record sounds great...[his] most ambitious yet....[He] explores some well-traveled roads: Beatlesque psychedelia; Irish reels; bluegrass....and, of course, the guns-blazin' badass stompers..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/9/00, pp.78-9) - "...He's thrown open the gates. Walking through the psychedelic title track, the RUBBER SOUL-ish pop, the garage rock, and the lovely Eire-meets-Tennessee 'The Galway Girl', BLUES is his musical road map..." - Rating: A-

Q (7/00, p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...There is no doubt that his songwriting chops just keep getting better...proving his mastery of every country-rock style..."

Magnet (1-2/01, p.44) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2000" - "...The crowning achievement of Nashville's king of the road..."

Down Beat (3/01, p.73) - 4.5 out of 5 - "Th ebest of Earle's career is a brilliant melange of rootsy country, blazing rock, Irish folk, uptempo bluegrass and Beatlesque pop..."

No Depression (5-6/00, pp.110-1) - "...There is much to suggest that a little less hair and a little more gut are matters of nuance,, and nuance is what it's eventually all is socked with good things...making loyalists glad they've been on board for the whole dang oeuvre..."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/00, p.106) - "...He bares his spiritual chest...with a Lennonesque honesty and a vocal delivery that increasingly resembles Tom Petty's sub-Dylan sneer..."
