Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The album that named a movement (and a magazine), No Depression rocks and twangs in just about equal measure, though the rock side wins out most of the time. Even when a song downshifts from full-on punk to banjo- and mandolin-graced interludes, it usually shifts back again, seemingly louder and angrier than before. Beyond the influential sound, though, are some great songs, whether they're raging originals like "Graveyard Shift," an earnest, acoustic cover of the Carter Family's title track, or a decidedly desperate portrait of Leadbelly's "John Hardy." Six bonus cuts flesh out the 2003 expanded and remastered edition, including a cover of Gram Parsons's "Sin City." --David Cantwell

Back in 1990, I thought I was pretty `with it'. In addition to indulging my omnipresent metal fetish, I was listening to Mother Love Bone, Green River, Soundgarden and whatever else I could get my hands on coming out of Seattle. Yeah, I was big man on campus at William and Mary - at least in my own mind. When the Seattle scene exploded I got the kudos owed to someone who was hip to the scene before it went nationwide. Pretty cool, huh?
Perhaps not as cool as I thought. By the mid-90s, Kurdt Cobain's suicide had pretty much signaled the end of the grunge movement and made it possible for rap metal lunkheads like Limp Bizkit and a second generation of grunge imitators like Creed to take over. Suddenly, a genre that had seemed so vital and revolutionary became dated. Old Soundgarden records no longer sounded as good and new ones like Down on the Upside just sounded horribly anachronistic.
The Seattle grunge scene was great while it lasted and we may never see another revolution in popular music quite like it. However, maybe if I'd been paying a little closer attention to a musical scene developing in America's heartland at the same time grunge was developing in Seattle, I'd have caught on to a second musical revolution during that era occurring in a genre that would prove to have more staying power than grunge. I'm talking about alt-country, aka "the movement".
The band credited with jumpstarting "the movement" was Uncle Tupelo which featured two brilliant songwriters, Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, who were heavily influenced by both traditional country and punk rock. What Lennon and McCartney were to classic rock, Farrar and Tweedy were to alt-country.

Format: Audio CD
Being a 17-year-old in a neverending search of good music, and recently aquiring a well-paying summer job, I have purchased such aformentioned CDs quickly and easily. I had bought the entire Wilco discography and fell in love with Jeff Tweedy's songwriting capabilities, and the built-to-last structure of every one of their songs. I had learned about Uncle Tupelo, his first band, and expected the same greatness. For some reason or another, I awaited a lot of Wilco-esque songs with Tweedy leading the way. Was I ever wrong.
At first, the slow realization that Jay Farrar was also a member of Uncle Tupelo came to me, and I hated it. The songs had more of a punkountry bend, and I wasn't prepared for it at all. But, with about the third listen, I completely understood the ins and outs of the album, and fell right into the groove. To me, it sounds like old-school, Lookout!-era Green Day with dueling banjos here and there, and it's bitchin'.
Sure, Tweedy's heartfelt and terrific songs "Train" and "That Year" are as good as he could possibly write them, I'd expect nothing less. But Farrar is the one that shines, especially on the heart-wrenching "Factory Belt", the woeful "Life Worth Livin'", and the Carter Family cover "No Depression", the remake that named the album, surrounding musical movement, and, in my opinion, cheap magazine.
This album will change your life, kind of. It won't make you like punk rock any more, it won't make you like country any more, it won't make you empathize with midwesterners' pleas for normal lives, it will just elevate you to an exciting place few albums ever could, and leave you wishing you had actually heard it in 1990, when it would have mattered, instead of ten years later.

Spin magazine has put No Depression in the top 90 albums of the decade. That's cool. It certainly makes a lot of sense to me. This album is in a small handful that has defined my taste in music. I was a DJ at my college radio station and had the pleasure to listen to a lot of new music. This album blew me away. "Whiskey Bottle" is one of my favorite songs of all time. And the loud-soft dynamic may have started on this album instead of with Nirvana's Nevermind. Common debate with friends over the course of Uncle Tupelo's career: Farrar or Tweedy--better songs? As Son Volt and Wilco continue to unfold, it is clear that Farrar isn't very willing to stray far from the roots of Tupelo. Tweedy has tossed twang out the window on "Summer Teeth." Tough decision. One thing is certain, fans can enjoy double the music output since the breakup of Tupelo. Anyway, No D (as I call it) is a great debut and will always have a special place in my expanding collection.

The best description of Uncle Tupelo I ever heard was "Husker Du fronted by Hank Williams, Sr." That pretty much sums it up. This album opened my (then) 19-year-old punk-rock ears to country music for the first time. A life-changing album in the truest sense of the word. It captures the true spirit of both genres and makes something powerful, beautiful, and unique. A must for any fan of either genre.

Uncle Tupelo might be one of the most impressive and important bands you have never heard of. In the few short years -- and four amazing albums -- of their existence they developed a sound that would turn into the alt-country movement.
"No Depression" is the first record they released. You can hear the twang of the country music background that was around them in Bellville, IL, the punk rock sounds of The Clash and The Romones in the heavy, quick guitar riffs, and the folk influences of Bob Dylan in the lyrics of this album. It really transcended any music of the time.
The songs individually are all excellent. The songs "No Depression", "Screen Door" and "Live Worth Livin'" stand out in my mind as the best of the disk. Farrar and Tweedy's voices compliment each other track to track while also giving a depth to the sound of the album. Quickly you will pick up on differences of Farrar's raspy voice, and deep outward looking lyrics while Tweedy's voice is smoother and lyrics are more inward looking.
I would recommend any current fans of the new resurgence of Alt-Country (the likes of Ryan Adam and Jesse Malin) to pick up this CD and all of Uncle Tupelo's albums to see where the genre began. Fans of Wilco (Tweedy's current band) and Son Volt (Farrar's band) will already know about the greatness of them music, and should also pick of these disks as before the re-release they were almost impossible to find.
