Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Musically, THE NASHVILLE SOUND hints at Isbell's bar band roots on up-tempo rockers like 'Cumberland Gap' and 'Hope the High Road.'"

Magnet - "Marked by a tangible intimacy and warmth and loaded with crisp performances from the 400 Unit, this is a true band album. It also happens to feature Isbell's finest songwriting to date..."

Mojo (Publisher) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he former Drive By Trucker's latest certainly does have that Nashville sound: clear and resonant and with an emphasis on note-perfect simplicity. Yet Isbell's songs go way beyond standard country fantasy, typically tapping into the sadness of finding yourself at odds with the world."

Paste (magazine) - "[T]riumphant in its topical resonance....Whether delivering heart-wrenching lines on the crumbling of the American Dream, or the crumbling of a relationship, each is given an equal shake, and that makes his songs unreasonably powerful."

Pitchfork (Website) - "'Hope the High Road,' with its heartfelt instructions for living a better life, is rousing enough to earn a place on future setlists....'Cumberland Gap' is another gains its momentum entirely from the 400 Unit's mighty performance."
