One of my greatest memories was a holiday to Chicago (a much better city than New York) and entering a huge record store to hear a deep and distinctive voice which I had heard many times before. Seeing Steve Earle preview songs from his album "Jerusalem" the strongest attack by any US artists on the wretched George Bush was one of the greatest thrills. If I died on the spot my smile was so wide it not have fitted in the coffin.

"Midnight at the Movies" had the same effect. Justin Townes Earle is of course Steve Earle's son with his middle name drawn his fathers hero Townes Van Zandt (check out Earle senior's brilliant tribute album "Townes"). JTE may be following in his illustrious father's footsteps in becoming a country singer but he ploughs a very different furrow although there are inevitably hints in his new album of his fathers own "Guitar Town". Still in his twenties he has already recorded a stone cold classic in the telling ballad "Lone Pine Hill" off his second album "The Good life". I have only heard some songs off his debut "Yuma" but I will not rest until I get it.

Townes Earle goes back into the roots of country, blues and Sun style rockabilly. He must be one of those guys at school who you just hate. Talented in the extreme and as cool as the Russian Winter in the Battle of Stalingrad, he would not only steal that girl who you have dreamed & lusted over but dump her just to be contrary. The lovely blonde on the front cover of the album already looks like she is cursing her luck.

A fantastic album from start to finish. I must admit i was suprised how amazing this album is. I purchased this after hearing a couple of tracks and reading some reviews. I am certainly going to invest on his debut album. At just over half an hour long you'll keep pressing the restart button for some more. If he keeps up this sort of standard of songwriting Justin Townes Earle will give his old man a run for his money.
I just found out about the "Yuma" ep which is a fantastic six track collection. After hearing all three releases i can honestly say this boy has a promising career ahead.

Firstly I would like to say that I am very surprised at seeing Townes Earle's excellent sophomore effort come up in my recommendations for purchase in the future. Why? Because I have had this album for over a year now as it has been on ITunes since its initial US release. I cannot believe that it is only about to come out in the UK now, especially as his new album 'Harlem River Blues' is due for release on September 14th 2010. But nonetheless I think I would like add me review to the two already present.

Midnight at the Movies is Townes Earle's second album that follows from 2008's brilliant 'The Good Life' and his excellent EP 'Yuma'. I initially heard Townes Earle on Bob Harris Country on BBC Radio 2 and was immediately mesmerised by his deep southern voice and excellent arrangements. He was like a bolt from the past - 1940's Nashville, Hank Williams et al. I downloaded his EP and first record, saw him in London, and knew I was in the company of someone who cared about great country music.

MatM is a perhaps not as raw and immediate as The Good Life but it is a very nice development in his abilities as a song writer. The arrangements are still heavily country but in songs such as the eponymous track he has been happy to move towards using non-traditional string arrangements. Each song moves seamlessly into the next with a general feel of melancholy and weariness that is nicely played on the records front cover. Earle's voice is still on form and is perhaps even more traditional than before, especially on songs such as 'Poor Fool', and he has that indefinable quality of sadness that all great country singers have - yet live he is wonderfully lively and cocky character.

MatM is an excellent album and deserves to be widely listened too. JTE is not Ryan Adams: he is the real deal. Yes he is his father's son but he is also most definitely his own man.

JTE does it again. This guy just keep's getting better and better. Following on from his first album from 2008 he has brought us "Midnight at the Movies (2009)" and what a fantastic album it truly is. Even the album cover looks the part, how cool does JTE look in that pic! From the opening song right through to the last it is an absolute joy to listen to this artist, you'll be reaching for the play button again when the album finishes. He's certainly living up to the name "Earle", I hope his Dad's proud of him! He has a song on this album "Mama's Eyes" for his Mum and Dad and the lyrics and music are so beautifully crafted. Keep the music coming JTE!

Highlights for me:

Midnight at the Movies
Mama's Eyes
Can't Hardly Wait
Poor Fool
Halfway to Jackson
Someday I'll Be Forgiven For This
Walk Out
