Format: Audio CD
At the time Dwight recorded this album, people could be forgiven for thinking that Dwight had run out of ideas – after all, he'd recorded a covers album and a Christmas album, which was predominately covers. With this album, Dwight proved that he could still write and sing brilliant original songs. As ever, Dwight's traditionally based country music has a rock edge that appeals to a wider audience while still appealing to most traditional country fans. Only the most diehard traditionalists could fail to appreciate Dwight's music. The overall feel of this album is very upbeat.
Dwight grabs your attention from the opening Same fool and holds it until the closing Maybe you like it maybe you don't, singing his way through a selection of songs that are incredibly varied yet still sit comfortably together. Dwight's influences are many and varied but fans of Buck Owens, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley will all hear echoes of their music in this album. Of course, Dwight's hillbilly vocal style combined with Pete Anderson's brilliant producing make his music unmistakeable for any other.
Dwight makes a rare incursion into bluegrass territory on Traveller's lantern, on which Ralph Stanley plays banjo. As Dwight had already appeared as a guest on Ralph's Clinch mountain country album, this was no surprise. Judged on this effort, it would be great to hear Dwight do a whole bluegrass album.
Dwight has recorded many outstanding albums (and one or two duds) but this is certainly one of the best albums Dwight has ever recorded and my may well be the best of the lot.

I will be uncharacteristically brief and simply say that this is a magnificent set of self-penned songs from 1998 by (along with Lyle Lovett) my favourite male country singer.
The terrific songs, Dwight`s strong, committed singing, his superb band (Pete Anderson`s guitar to the fore as usual)...all go to make up a very fine album in an already illustrious, unique discography.
This shows Dwight in all his moods - he`s even sounding like a western soundtrack number on the remarkable song Listen, backed by a female chorus.
Traveler`s Lantern features country legend Ralph Stanley on banjo and harmony vocals.
The whole set of thirteen songs is an utter joy from beginning to end.
Dwight Yoakam: one of the best on one of his best!

Highly recommended.

I am a great fan of Dwight Yoakam, and as far as I am concerned he can't go far wrong ! He also writes a lot of his own material, instead of just singing 'other people's' songs. Obviously, I like some of the tracks better than the others, but all of them are very "listenable"!

This is one of my favorite CD's of Dwights. He wrote every track, and they are all gems. Hard core honky tonk with Yet To Succeed, I'll Just Take These. Listen is a hidden gem that you don't hear very often, and Travelers Lantern is Mountain music at its best. His melodies are great, but it's his lyrics that really shine. He's a real troubadour. This CD is just wonderful.
