After ripping it up on No Depression and Still Feel Gone, their first two albums of twangy punk rock, Uncle Tupelo unplugged for this remarkable tribute--half originals, half political and religious covers--to the band's old-time influences. While the new songs of frontmen Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy are consistently strong here (especially Farrar's "Grindstone"), it's the album's haunted covers of old folksongs that are the true keepers. Tweedy's apocalyptic version of "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down" and Farrar's earnest readings of the beat-down "Moonshiner" and the labor song "Coalminers" are as frightening, beautiful, and passionate as anything the band ever recorded. --David Cantwell

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 .....
