5.0 out of 5 stars Unjustly Neglected, 29 Dec. 2006
This review is from: I Feel Alright (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.
