Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Allen isn't as well known as his old pals from Lubbock, Texas--Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock--but he shares their slightly twisted, strangely inspired approach to country-folk-rock songwriting. On previous recordings, Allen's smart, sardonic lyrics have often been undermined by his dry, cramped voice and flat arrangements, but on this new album he gets help from such longtime friends and admirers as Ely, David Byrne, Lucinda Williams, Will Sexton, and Charlie Sexton. They put the musical flesh on Allen's verbal skeleton and make this idiosyncratic but gifted songwriter a lot more approachable. Allen serves up Jerry Jeff Walker-like barroom anthems about Texas, Talking Heads-like contemplations of modern society and Ely-like story songs about the border. --Geoffrey Himes

When I first heard Terry Allen (beyond a brief song featured in David Byrne's "True Stories"), I really didn't know what to think. It was in Omaha, Nebraska at an art opening, and here was this guy ... this middle-aged man in dark glasses playing a keyboard and singing country ... Yes, I did have a beer in my hand, and yes, there were a few yee-haw's, but, all in all, it seemed different. There's a smartness to his lyrics most "crying in the beer bottle" country artists can't match. He's been writing clever songs about Texas since the members of Sun Volt were still in grade school, and this album, which I shortly purchased after the show, is his crowning achievement. Featuring musicians like Joe Ely and Lucinda Williams (and yes, David Byrne), Allen manages to capture a flavor that is missing from most "radio-friendly" country artists these days ... artistry. He can turn a simple ballad into a haunting song, the first true test of any ! musician. And he has a wit that's been missing since early Randy Newman. His music is a wide palette, too ... everything from country ditties to rock and roll to heavy metal ... this album is all over the map. So if you're in the mood for something different, try Terry Allen's brand of Texas flair. And cry in a beer and mean it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just The Best October 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is just simply the best Terry Allen you will hear. Teamed with David Byrne and Lucinda williams and Loyde Maines, this is a true sample of Texas Music at its best. Terry Allen can put in words, feelings,thoughts and emotions things that others cant even think. Flatland Boogie "headlights are shining on all we ever need to know" sums it up. A must for any fan of Texas poets. With this one Robert Earl and Steve Earle must both be jealous.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic May 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are as tired as I am of the slick pop-country world of Nashville, but still want to hear some good ol country, Terry's the man. This is the best country album of the 90's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, gritty, witty country May 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is excellent, gritty, witty country in the vein of newer Johnny Cash (Rick Rubin era). Buy this. Also, buy Human Remains' _Using Sickness as a Hero_. It'll show you the Pennsylvania side of grity, wit, and country masculinity.
