re: OT Music Thread
Alright duddly, I listened to the album by the drive by truckers you recommended.

Some of the songs werent too bad, and some of them i wasnt a fan of (like the opening track)

I did like the Day John Henry Died quite a bit, and I can certainly appreciate some of the lyrics in Puttin' People On the Moon. Reminded me a little of Johnny 99.



Still, they aint no (pre rehab) Steve Earle

I aint ever satisfied

Nice, I wasn't a fan of the opening track the first time I listened either.

It's not a perfecg album, but I really enjoy most of it. I recommended it to you because you prefer more rock than country.

That's definitely how I felt too. A lot of people can't stand Patterson Hood's raspy voice, and it kind of gets on my nerves in Tornadoes, but I really like Puttin' People on the Moon and The Sands of Iwo Jima.

I love 3/4 of the songs Jason Isbell did on it. Like I said, Patterson Hood is kind of hit or miss. Mike Cooley is above average, but he's always been a limited lyricist.



The Dirty South Tracks Ranked (IMHO):

1. Goddamn Lonely Love (Jason Isbell)
2. Puttin' People on the Moon (Patterson Hood)
3. Carl Perkins' Cadillac (Mike Cooley)
4. The Day John Henry Died (Isbell)
5. Danko/Manuel (Isbell)
6. The Sands of Iwo Jima (Hood)
7. Daddy's Cup (Cooley)
8. Where the Devil Don't Stay (Cooley)
9. The Boys from Alabama (Cooley)
10. The Buford Stick (Hood)
11. Cottonseed (Cooley)
12. Lookout Mountain (Hood)
13. Never Gonna Change (Isbell)
14. Tornadoes (Hood)

I love Steve Earle. I haven't had the chance to dive into his discography as much as I want to.

I did not enjoy Hood's voice really, but the lyrics yeah, not bad and his voice fit the song.

re: OT Music Thread
Earle's first three albums are all pretty solid. Then he got really into the heroine and then sorta fell apart and got kinda weird after rehab. He still has a few good tunes after those three but they are the best by far.

Listen to Guitar Town front to back. He wrote some songs for other musicians (Waylon Jennings, Elvis (song was never recorded), etc) but didnt get to record till later on, so his first album is surprisingly good.

Exit 0 is a little drop in consistency when compared to Guitar Town and the album after it Copper Head Road (which borders rock at times). Still, I love the song Number 29 even if its slower and theres some other good ones on it.

Your next album for when you are looking for new music.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's "The Nashville Sound"

He's actually an interesting story. He went to Memphis and dropped out, only lacking one physical education to graduate. He went straight into Drive-By Truckers, and was with them for 5 years.

Here is him in 2002 (on the left):

He was eventually forced out of DBT because of his constant drug usage. He got sober in 2013, and has since won a ton of awards.




Here is him now:

Talk about turning your life around.

Anyways, this album won 2 Grammys, winning best Americana album and best Americana song for "If We Were Vampires". It was also nominated for best overall album that year.

Recently, Jason has been extremely woke, which is kind of annoying, but he's still one of the most talented musicians I've ever heard.

To me, this album is a perfect mix of rock and country.

If you find the time, listen to the full album, but if you only have time to listen to a few, I recommend these:

Hope the High Road

Cumberland Gap

Molotov


All three of those are great tracks and more rock than country.


My personal favorites are "Last of my Kind", "If We Were Vampires" and "Hope the High Road", but two of those are more country.

re: OT Music Thread
By the way, this isn’t even his best album. Some musicians consider his 2013 album “Southeastern” the best country album ever.

But that album is almost completely acoustic guitar and has a much more raw sound to it. It’s not the type of sound you probably like.

re: OT Music Thread
he looked like the hill billy version of the fat kid from superbad. Good for him gettin cleaned up

Listened to Cumberland Gap and If we were vampires. Both were ok.
Some musicians tend to be woke (Steve Earle became so after rehab) just the way they are. I try not to let their politics get in the way of my enjoyment of music. If i did at least half of rock would be gone probably.

I dont mind country. Have just always preferred rock. I think I own like 2 country albums that arent by Steve Earle

Exactly this. You should see the threads about him on the music board. He was everyone’s favorite, but now most of them feel betrayed.

I just laugh. 80% of musicians are liberals. It doesn’t matter to me though. Isbell is kind of an odd bird though. He’s kind of an a-hole on Twitter about it.
