Rodney never fails to amaze me with his insightful,autobiographical,fabulously written and played songs, and here he's in top form.He make's song craft so effortless, just like the other great songwriters of his generation, Rosanne Cash,Lyle Lovett,Steve Earle, Towns Van Zant ...
If you find this to your liking,please do go and search out his catalogue ,his early stuff from the late 80's was good alt country stuff, but he really turned the corner (after a few years away from the biz) with 'The Houston Kid' from 2001 and followed it up with 'Fates Right Hand' 2003,'The Outsider'2005 ,'Sex And Gasoline 2008 and 'Tar Paper Sky' 2014 , but this one could be his best.
Another great album from Mr Crowell. A relief to hear after his last solo effort, Tarpaper Sky.
He's trancended most connections to country music on this album_ save for some instrumentation. It's an autobiographical, self-confessional collection of blues, rock and folk songs about love, loss and getting older.
Almost every tune on this album is VERY good_ except for the last one; which should have been called "Name Dropping '72"
Nevertheless, its one of my top 5, so far, this year
