Editorial Reviews

2009 release. Isbell is a former member of the Drive-By Truckers and this is his second solo release. The album was co-produced by Isbell and his new band The 400 Unit with Matt Pence. The album was recorded at the renowned Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL. Isbell, who is following in the tradition of American songwriters who have recorded in North Alabama. Much like Arthur Alexander, Eddie Hinton and Spooner Oldham, Isbell mixes a soulful vocal style with songs that are passionate and unrepentant in their sense of place and direct in their stubborn Southerness.

Jason Isbell is an incredible songwriter and performer that is clearly on a rapid ascension within Americana music.

Excellent musicianship and obvious confidence without being complacent make this a very enjoyable listen indeed.

Jason Isbell, that's who. This album is a ridiculously polished follow up to Sirens of the Ditch. If you like straightforward Rock with Soul, then this album is for you. After the first few listens, Sirens was still a notch ahead of this record. Songs like "Dress Blues" and "In A Razor Town" will probably never be topped, but this album as a whole has since gone on to suprass Sirens by leaps and bounds. This album has some nice familiarity in it with guitar driven songs like "Good" but also has some unique melodic moments with "Soldiers Get Strange" and "Streetlights". This record has a lot of layers and textures from the intro percussion and dobro-esque acoustic slide guitar of Seven Mile Island" to the horn and soul drenched "No Choice In The Matter". I have been spinning this disc since before it was released and will probably remain a mainstay in my repertoire for years to come. Enjoy.

I also saw the 400 Unit last week for the third time, and they DO NOT disappoint.

A solid effort. I don't know if its because I've been clamoring for more music after "Sirens of the Ditch" release, or that its that good a record. I got it Tuesday, it hasn't left my CD player yet. From "Seven Mile Island," to "However Long," to "Streetlights," this is no DBT sounding album. Pure, Southern Soul and solid Rock music. Not guitar driven, as the Drive-By records were, but each song has its own strong point. I like the addition of horns and keys from time to time.

Jason Isbell is an incredible songwriter and performer that is clearly on a rapid ascension within Americana music. This album builds on his original solo work and continues with great songwriting and wonderful music executed to near perfection. For the rock fan who likes a little country twist (no tacky country cheese or twang), or the country fan who is ready to abandon manufactured paint-by-numbers soundalikes, try this out. This is southern music that captures a sound missed by the major genres. I recommend this album as well as his debut Sirens of the Ditch and most highly recommend the latest Here We Rest- which was nominated for multiple awards and won Song of the Year honors for Alabama Pines at is year's Americana Music Awards.

A friend introduced me to Jason Isbell years ago and no musical artist has made me love music as much as he does over those past few years. I finally bought this album after listening to a number of his songs online and I was pleasantly surprised by some of the songs I had never heard before. I will be seeing him in concert soon so I plan on buying a couple more.

Thanks Jason for all the great music!

I heard Jason's song on a local station in North Alabama and was really impressed with his soulful sound. I purchase the CD "Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit" and I love it! He is truly a performer...singing with heart and soul.

This is simply an inspiring step forward in Jason's musical trek. It's genuine, soulful, and reflects the rich Muscle Shoals sound. Jason is just Jason. I have no comparisons. The 400 Unit is a talented ensemble who augment the skills of Jason. This is a must have for those who want a return to music which comes from the heart.
