5.0 out of 5 stars He just keeps getting better and better 16 April 2013
By Cambridge Ian VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard a Steve Earle track almost 25 years ago.

From the first moment I heard that voice I was hooked - and now a quarter of a century later, after all the booze, the drugs, the jail time and the many many marriages he's still here and still able to make me stop and listen for 45 minutes.

This collection of songs is quite possibly his best yet - the voice, the emotion and the stories that underpin all he does now is apparent form first track to last. this isn't going to get any radio airplay in the uk at all but it will be a permanent fixture on car mp3 player for the forseeable future.

I haven't watched the dvd yet and I don't have the ability to play the high def audio copy on the dvd but as they added only a a few pence to the cost they have to be worthwhile buying.

21st century blues is my standout track - love it.

Classic Steve Earle, Simply brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Earle Being Earle 16 April 2013
By Vaughan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My expectations for a new Steve Earle recording is that it's simply Earle being Earle. As much as he enjoys flights of fancy, love songs, and songs honoring family and friends, he equally cannot tear himself away from injustice, hardships, and acknowledgements of the frailty of our lives - and especially his own.

As an audience it's possible to become somewhat used to things simply being excellent, so much so that we can forget just how good Earle is. His consistent output is such that pre-ordering once a new disc comes up is a reflex action on my part.

This recording covers the usual canvas, from the disenfranchised to simple melodies and messages. The other musicians are used subtly, but careful attention to the backing track reveals the details nicely.

Writing "this is Earle being Earle" m ay sound like damning with faint praise, but the fact is he has defined himself long ago, and is simply plowing the furrow in ever more deliberate ways. And so consistent is his work that you could choose this, or any other of his recordings, as an introduction.

The CD comes in a Digipac that folds out into three panels. The booklet contains full lyrics. The "Special Edition" includes a "Making of" film, and a music video on a DVD. However, the real bonus is a high resolution copy of the album in 24/96.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve shows his class here 15 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I felt that whilst the last album he made with T Bone Burnett had some strong songs on it, they were all very similar in feel and kind of blended into each other. Making a "road" record as Steve describes it forced Steve to make a more instinctive record here and his fans are rewarded with probably the most musically versatile he has made in ages. Its always hard to assess where a Steve record will rank, he isnt capable of making a bad record although I do feel that the last album for the reasons I expressed was a bit lacklustre.

The album puts you in the unique position that only a major songwriter like Steve would put you in , where your favourite track changes almost daily. The power of good music is it catches up on you so initially hearing "Invisible" I was underwhelmed safe to say I love the song now , a song that deals with how you might feel as a homeless person. Steve will never claim to be a saint but he does write about things that matter to the common man the last song is a heartfelt plea to his very young son John Henry Earle for him to "Remember Me" as with Steve being a father in his fifties he deals with the fact that he may not see his son grow up.I think this may be the only song that may not work for some people, at least not straight away but the sentiments he expresses are sincere. John Henry also has autism another fight for the Earle's.

As soon as you hear the first chords of "Low Highway" where Steve imagines himself in the Depression, you know you are in for treat, and there are also songs that rock like Calico County or Is that All Youve got?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 25 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Steve since I purchased Guitar Town when I had a lot less grey hair. I got this album from Amazon a couple of days ago and it's been played, played, played and played again. It's such a great album and right through to the last track a songbook of true delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars An important Piece The Jigsaw. 2 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steve Earle has in recent years has gone back to the bare bones basics with great success. As you would expect from one of America's music's great songwriters. Steve is a master when comes to writing in the narrative prospective. The characters in his songs are by in large the common every day people we meet in our oh so real lives. This is a skill he has horned over the years. This album sees a return to Steve's pre - 9/11 form. The Low Highway is a work that is as stunning as the diversity woven into it's fabric. In many respects it marks Steve returning to where he left off with 2000's "Transcendental Blues." Like "T.B's" this is an album that act like a collection of short stories told against the back drop of modern day America, with his trademark cinematic scope employed. If you have not connected with Steve in recent years. This is the album by which to re-connect. If you seek any further convincing. well before you part with your hard earned cash. Take a few moment to seek out and wonder at the video for Steve Earle's "Invisible." Then give your ears a treat and take a journey along "The Low Highway."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly produced
as is usually the case with steve Earle's recordings.
Mainly because it's not over produced. Always the song is the man subject and not some fancy sound experiments

5.0 out of 5 stars The best band Steve has assembled
Some excellent songs and the best band Steve has assembled around him(he said that himself when I saw him perform last month). Chris Masterson is a musical genius.
