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.

It is incredible to think that this album (I Feel Alright) has been in circulation since 1996. As a Steve Earle fan, and someone who has most if not all of his back catalogue, how this one ever slipped through the net is beyond me. I Feel Alright has to be possibly Steve's finest collection of songs (And best kept secret) since Copperhead Road and there have been many high spots in his recording career since then. This CD was one of two released after his spell in prison (The other being Train-a-Comming) and of the two, this deals directly with his addictions and how he ended up in prison. There is a real mixture of styles to be found here, from his trademark style country rock, through rockabilly, folk and blues. Just listen to the stark production on Valentines Day and CCKMP (Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain). There is not a bad track within the 12 available on this CD. If you are into Steve Earle, then I can assure you that this is up there with his best. If you don't know much about the man, but are curious, then you will not be disappointed.

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.

This is a brilliant album which came to my attention from the use of the title song in season two of HBO's 'The Wire'. Steve Earle truly is a magisterial musician. There's so many influences on this album. 'Valentine's Day' is very much in the mode of Tom Waits and the guitar opening to 'CCKP' (Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain) is not too dissimilar to Nick Drake complimented by Dylanesque vocals. All the other songs,as pointed out by previous reviewers, have very personal themes. If you've not heard this album then I suggest buy it, and the record company should reissue it as Steve Earle is now regaining popularity. What a man! Hat's off to Steve Earle and mine's a ten gallon.

I like to hear everything Steve Earle does. He's a kind of country Springsteen, only with a far more downhome voice, a more ornery attitude, and (these days) a lot less hair on top.
This clocks in at barely forty minutes, but it's time well spent in the company of this man who has never to my knowledge made a bad record. I wouldn't quite put it up there with El Corazon, say, or The Mountain, but it's still a fine album, and one that, like all Earle's, grows on you the more you listen to it.
All the twelve songs are written by Steve E, though one or two ring bells and may well be based on more traditional songs. No matter, there isn't a single dud among them, even if a couple seem just a tad workaday.
Some of the songs pack a real punch, hardly surprising since he was going through a difficult period in his often colourful life. Little here hints at the brilliance to come on his 1997 album El Corazon, but you never know with Earle. Following him on his journey from early records such as Copperhead Road and Guitar Town to more recent releases is a fascinating ride, and I Feel Alright - a statement which I believe must have been mostly true - is an essential part of his sometimes traumatic odyssey.
On the last song, the affirmative You're Still Standin' There, he had the happy idea of getting Lucinda Williams (a female Steve Earle - and vice versa - if ever there was one) to duet with him. The result is a splendidly cathartic finale to a superb album of personal songs from one of America's finest and most intelligent contemporary singer-songwriters.
Anyone who loves the man will want this.

Recommended.
