I've been pushing that one a lot, actually! Reviewed it back when it came out: http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=3723073

Agree to disagree.



It is, just not his story. He said he wrote it after talking with a bunch of uncles and other relatives at a family reunion. They told him a bunch of stories and said "don't...

I don't like panning something for the sake of panning something, but if I feel like I have to say something (that Maroon 5 album NEEDED to be shredded), I'll do it.



Some records are lukewarm....

Interesting. I wasn't a big fan of the Robert Ellis LP from last year, but I'll check this out.

I haven't panned anything since Maroon 5. When's that new Night Beds album coming out?

I don't think anyone on staff particularly liked this album? There might have been one person, but Craig was the one who wanted to write about it, so he's the one who wrote about it. Nate has been...

I think I knew this, but yeah, definitely gotta make it out to that one.



It's actually pretty surprising how unknown Field Report still is considering Vernon's fame. I think I actually like...

The only song close for me was probably "Elephant," which was devastating in a completely different way.

I disagree that it has everything. It does not have the incredibly personal, emotional resonance that "Cover Me Up" does. "Decoration Day" was good, but "Cover Me Up" is top five all time concert...

Ramirez has a new one coming out about the same time as Carry the Ghost, and it is very good. Apologies, his last record, is the perfect place to start though.



Definitely hear the Vernon...

David Ramirez - Apologies
John Moreland - High on Tulsa Heat
Field Report - Marigolden

If you haven't heard those yet, I highly recommend them. Ramirez in particular is a lot like Gundersen. Those...

NoiseTrade has a "primer" for pay-what-you-want that includes "Slow Dancer," "Jealous Love," and the four songs from the Twenty-Something EP that aren't "Smells Like Teen...

Beneath the Fireworks is pretty good, and worth a listen. Most of his stuff before that I could take or leave, though. I think Some Mad Hope was the record where he really made a great record instead...

Best live Isbell song is "Cover Me Up" hands down. They're all great, but that one was just something else.

I don't know, there's a lot that I think is kind of dodgy, quality-wise, on So Runs the World Away. But I do think that Animal Years and Historical Conquests are very solid. I thought Beast was great...

A lot of the stuff on the last two records especially really blends together for me. And then there will be something like "The Curse" or "Joy to You Baby" that really stands out, and I always just...

I really like Modern Love, but I just think he does that kind of summer pop album very well. I'd definitely say that Last of the Great Pretenders is worth a listen. It's a good mix of him channeling...
