From CryingGameDahlin 10/10/2016 06:34
Continues where Decoration Day left off, taking their music into a slighty more high-concept, dirty-southern gothic direction. While it lacks some of the brutal, blunt impact of their previous album, it's still very strong, with it's great trio of songwriters continuing to work wonders in their shawdow-y, conflicted view of the modern south. All deserve credit but Isbell's compositions still stand out the most- while still good, I don't think the band's music was ever quite as potent and immediate after he left.

The high-water mark for great Southern rock band Drive-By Truckers, who understood something even Lynyrd Skynyrd never did: what principal Songwriter Patterson Hood has called "the duality of the Southern thing." I'm not even sure that the best track here is one of Hood's, though; that honor has to go to Jason Isbell's brutal ballad "Goddamn Lonely Love."

This is the third of a three-album peak for this band, from a time when they had three excellent songwriters all hitting their marks. The real standout on this one is Jason Isbell, who contributed three instant classics in "Danko/Manuel," "Never Gonna Change," and "Goddamn Lonely Love."
