5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Album 29 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is simply one of the greatest Alt.Country/Americana albums ever recorded.Pure acoustic genius from start to finish and you'll still be listening to it in 30 years (and beyond).I've got this recording on vinyl,original CD and now the "spruced-up,sounds even better" new version and it remains a gloriously ragged scuffed -up masterpiece.Buy it and your ears will love ya forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it now 2 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When you have two genuine musical genius' in a band , like Uncle Tupelo have in Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, then you're pretty much guarenteed a good album. But when they are playing unplugged, showcasing their guitar skills, then you're on course for one of the albums of the decade. About 50/50 original songs (my favourites being Black Eye and Shacky Ground) and traditional songs (such as the brilliant Moonshiner and the heartfelt plea of Coalminers), the album is as good as anything Farrar or Tweedy have done before or since, although Still Feel Gone is probably better for the uninitiated. However, if you like alt-country then you are in for a treat. Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 21 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
When i saw that this Cd was only averaging 3 and a half stars , well.... !
I'm outraged !
Simply , this is an absolute masterpiece , an all - time classic and one of the greatest ever releases in the Alt.Country/Americana genre . Superbly and passionately sung throughout by both Jay and Jeff , beautifully played by everyone involved and most excellent production by REM's Peter Buck , it's without doubt a cornerstone of any worthwhile collection of Country/Folk/roots music . Put this on your "must buy" list at once .....

4.0 out of 5 stars How to be a young, alt. county singer/songwriter 19 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
I found it difficult to review this album because, although it is not my favourite Uncle Tupelo album, that is largely due to the fact that their earlier albums are more punky/rocky, which is the kind of music I like. This album is completely acoustic, unlike Uncle Tupelo's previous two albums, and amply illustrates both Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy's ability to tackle this.
I would recommend this album mainly to people who enjoy alt. country, quiet rock and acoustic roots music. For people who prefer music with a harder edge I would suggest buying No Depression and Still Feel Gone first, but this album is still definitely worth having; there are some great songs on here and it is still characteristic of Uncle Tupelo, despite lacking the signature abrupt stops and starts of their first two albums.
Overall, this is a really good album, just don't expect it to rock out at any point because you'll be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult 20 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
I do love this; but it is not for everyone.
This is their acoustic album, containing a lot of traditional folk material. The standout tracks are Fatal Wound, Black Eye, Moonshiner and Grindstone, all of which are collected on the compilation album. Dylan must have been an influence at the time.
If there is a criticism it is the religious material, such as the cover of the Louvin Brothers' Atomic Power. I find this a bit hard to stomach, though I would say Jay Farrar does fire-and-brimstone quite convincingly compared to Jeff Tweedy. I suppose the criticisms are the same as those for the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo.
Any fan of Americana would love this, and the current CD edition is definitive. If you are approaching from the point of view of a Wilco fan then you need Anodyne instead.
