5.0 out of 5 stars Ladies and gentlemen, the astonishing Steve Earle March 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Not only the album title, "Exit 0" but also the opening cut, "Nowhere Road," testify to what many assumed to be Steve Earle's ultimate destination for so long. Now cleaned up and apparently doing well--both creatively and personally--Earle fought so many demons for so long that most folks assumed this prodigiously talented musician and composer would end up dead in a ditch by the side of the road. Perhaps mindful of this possibility, Earle works the road metaphor here and mines continual and astonishing riches out of it. "Nowhere Road" admits, "I push that road from here to someday/I'll push as long as I'm alive, but I don't know how long I'll last . . . I know I'm going way too fast." "Sweet Little '66" is Buddy Holly-inspired ode to a favorite Chevy and the rest of the songs mostly have to do with roads, traveling, hotels--anything to get away from the here and now. The rest of the songs are just as good. Earle shows flashes of sly humor here, too--it's not all serious "poor me, I have to get away" stuff. On "The Week of Living Dangerously," he talks about taking off from his wife and kids--eventually even throwing the baby's car seat in a Dumpster so he can go off and have an unimpeded, uninterrupted good time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 1987 Follow-Up to Guitar Town March 14, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
During a 1986 tour stop in New York City, Earle sat for an interview with Rolling Stone and promised his next album was "already 3/4 written" and would be "more political." Released in early 1987 with virtually no label support due to his increasing dependence on addictive drugs, Earle pushed "Exit 0" sales into the six-figure realm through relentless touring and word of mouth. Earle had been performing some of the escapist-themed tunes here - "The Week of Living Dangerously," "Sweet Little 66," and the haunting "Number 29" for more than a year, and the masterful farm anthem "The Rain Came Down" was added "strictly out of guilt 'cause no one at Farm Aid knew who I was." There is heightened restlessness ("I Ain't Ever Satisfied") alongside youthful exhuberance ("San Antonio Girl") sometimes placing the listener in a quandry, but only because Earle's tautly-drawn characters are so believable. Producer Richard Bennett's trademark 6-string bass is not as prominent, which was probably a signpost of Earle's desire to venture into rock territory on future projects. Regardless of which camp he intended to visit, Exit 0 makes for a most interesting stop.

5.0 out of 5 stars An American Treasure You Must Own February 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Exit 0, and its predecessor Guitar Town are two of the best examples of Singer/Songwriting in American music - simple as that. Even if the rock-a-billy style isn't your thing, Steve Earle writes poetry about living in rural America that should strike a chord with everyone. Grab these records while you can - in 20 yrs. you'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steve Pushes Forward January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In a determined move to take control of the character of his sound, Steve Earle rides the faders into the red zone, mixing brittle country steel with a revved up guitar licks and forces his way past corporate country experts to begin the definition of a genre. Subtley blending his vocal twang and storytime lyrics with hot guitars and RnR attitude, he opens the bar room door and sucks you in. Just about the time you think that Music Row has a place for him, he sneaks in a harmonica ala Dylan and introduces you to an Angry Young Man, a TexMex San Antonio harlot complete with cheezy Sam the Sham Farfisa Organ, and the declaration of his intention to take life on his OWN terms.. I Aint Ever Satisfied. It proved to be quite prophetic. A clinic in writing and recording for the sake of the song. Townes would be proud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to Be Forgotten January 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Steve Earle is one of a precious few; his name should be mentioned in the same breath as other great songwriters such as Tom Waits. And, like Waits, he is off the beaten track. This means he'll never have a Christmas Special, and also would probably never want one. He is the real thing; as lost and broken as your worst night. Give him a chance. He is a true original - no small achievement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Album By a Great Artist June 27, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has a few of Steve Earle's best songs, notably "The Rain Came Down" and "I Ain't Ever Satisfied." If you don't know Mr. Earle's work, you would do well to use this as an was mine and I still listen to it 10 years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute To Steve Earle And The Dukes. April 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
My introduction to Steve Earle and the Dukes was almost a total accident. I seldom listen to country music and don't particularly care for most of it. The strange thing here is that I had added a compact disc player to my new stereo system and I was enjoying the stunning new sound. Most of the recordings I was buying were classical, and there was a reason. They were digitally recorded. Popular music of that day (late 80s) was recorded mostly on analogue tape, then mastered and transfered to the digital compact discs. Purists said this was okay, but for really pristine digital sound you ought to be getting recordings that were totally digitally recorded, mastered and put out on digital discs. It maid sense. So I started looking for DDD discs, as they were called, but there were few examples available. One that I found was the Steve Earle CD "Exit 0." Okay, I'd never heard of Steve Earle and didn't particularly like country music, but it was worth a try. And sure enough, the sound was excellent. Just what I wanted, audiowise.

Well, it also turned out that the music was excellent. That was a real surprise. I really enjoyed this disc! Steve sings and plays guitars and the harmonica. Other musicians add backing vocals, bass guitar, other guitars, organ, synthesizer and drums. A few other instruments are tossed in such as piano, mandolin and accordian. It's effective. Real nice band along with the excellent sound! Steve Earle delivers the lead vocals. It's somewhat twangy and world weary. He sings of the road, his car his girl, his drinking and what pees him off. It's a nice mix. Real country. Delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed the album in addition to the pristine DDD sound. Somewhat strangely, I've never followed it up with further Steve Earle discs and now I'm almost totally into electronic music. But I've got a lot of respect for Steve Earle and maybe I ought to listen to a bit more of country music.
