5.0 out of 5 stars Marks a real return to form 11 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
Much has been written about Steve Earle's problems in the 80s and early 90s, but this album marked a real return to form. It's full of simple, clever little songs and wonderfully memorable tunes. "Hard Core Troubador" is a real favourite - lovely lyrics. But the stand out track is the duet with the inestimable Lucinda Williams, "You're Still standing There". It doesn't get much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Earle 'I Feel Alright' 18 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is incredible to think that this album (I Feel Alright) has been in circulation since 1996. As a Steve Earle fan, and someone who has most if not all of his back catalogue, how this one ever slipped through the net is beyond me. I Feel Alright has to be possibly Steve's finest collection of songs (And best kept secret) since Copperhead Road and there have been many high spots in his recording career since then. This CD was one of two released after his spell in prison (The other being Train-a-Comming) and of the two, this deals directly with his addictions and how he ended up in prison. There is a real mixture of styles to be found here, from his trademark style country rock, through rockabilly, folk and blues. Just listen to the stark production on Valentines Day and CCKMP (Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain). There is not a bad track within the 12 available on this CD. If you are into Steve Earle, then I can assure you that this is up there with his best. If you don't know much about the man, but are curious, then you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unjustly Neglected 29 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was suprised to see I Feel Alright on the second page of Steve Earle's CD's, as I feel it is about his best album. The songwriting is more personal than say Guitar Town, but as he had just finished his stint in jail this is not really suprising. Two songs deal with the events leading up to Steve's jail sentence, South Nashville Blues and the astonishing Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain. The duet with Lucinda Williams is touching as is Valentine's Day, which along with Hurtin' Me, Hurtin You, see Steve reflecting on his love of, but inability with, his various partners. I Feel Alright and Hard Core Troubadour reaffirm his desire to play again (you have to remember that MCA had dropped him and no-one in Nashville would touch him after his jail sentence), while Billy and Bonnie is a great little Steve Earle story song.

A seemingly unfashionable Steve Earle album, but one I would urge you not to ignore.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unacknowledged masterpiece. 2 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant album which came to my attention from the use of the title song in season two of HBO's 'The Wire'. Steve Earle truly is a magisterial musician. There's so many influences on this album. 'Valentine's Day' is very much in the mode of Tom Waits and the guitar opening to 'CCKP' (Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain) is not too dissimilar to Nick Drake complimented by Dylanesque vocals. All the other songs,as pointed out by previous reviewers, have very personal themes. If you've not heard this album then I suggest buy it, and the record company should reissue it as Steve Earle is now regaining popularity. What a man! Hat's off to Steve Earle and mine's a ten gallon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best and its not Copperhead Road 3 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steve Earle writes great songs, and he has come through a lot in his life and still triumphed, as many of us have also had to do with a lot less then he had. I love him and I admire him, however the songs on here are not my favourites, its a moody album and I don't like miserable songs.
