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.
