3.0 out of 5 stars Average album from world's greatest band, 11 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Brighter Than Creation's Dark (Audio CD)
Sometimes the popular opinion is just correct. Jason Isbell's departure from DBT means the band has lost one-third of its quality. Shonna Tucker, for all her fine musicianly qualities, just doesn't fill his very large shoes (especially live - Isbell had a lot of stage presence; Shonna really doesn't). The first DBT album since Isbell's departure is, therefore, about two-thirds as good as The Dirty South, and about one-third longer than it needed to be. I haven't been so disappointed in a band's new album since some time in the Stone Age. There are a couple of top tracks here (Two Daughters and a Beautiful Wife comes to mind, and so does The Man I Shot), but the extra depth that Isbell used to provide is sadly sadly lacking. I still love DBT, and I hope they'll regroup around the new personnel and come out of their recent creative slump to produce some more wonderful music. I'll keep on buying their stuff just in case. Meanwhile, though, The Dirty South stays in the CD player.
