I love that he can still surprise me.

The song is very simple, very light-hearted, and very beautiful and is definitely a highlight of the album.

This by far is the best Steve Earle album to date.

It's been 3 years since Steve Earle released a new studio album. In that time, George W. Bush has been reelected, Steve got married again to the beautiful Allison Moorer, and he packed up his Nashville paraphernalia and moved to the city. New York City, to be exact. In fact, if you don't already know it, Steve now resides on the same block so famously pictorially memorialized on the cover of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, and it's very clear from listening to him that he takes the spirit of Greenwich Village very seriously and very much to his corazón.

With all that in mind, Steve's new gift to music is Washington Square Serenade, an album of 11 originals and 1 cover. Recorded in the famed Electric Lady studios, the album is different from his others by default, because as he says right in the bonus disc's interviews, he now "tests positive for ProTools." This is immediately apparent from the album's beginning, which has drum beats and samples throughout the 12 tracks. If you can get past the beats, you've got a pretty darn good album ahead of you.

The album begins with Steve's farewell to Nashville, "Tennessee Blues." Personally, I think the acoustic-only version is better (more on that later), but the lyrics are downright beautiful--"Blue dog on my floorboard, redhead by my side, cross the mighty Hudson River to the New York City side. Redhead by my side, boys, sweetest thing I've found. Goodbye, Guitar Town"--and a perfect goodbye to the place he used to call home. Next comes "Down Here Below," a mostly spoken-word song about the resident NYC red-tailed hawk Pale Male that is very reminiscent of the Drive-By Truckers' "A World of Hurt." Steve's voice is hypnotizing on it.

Format: Audio CD
I heard a radio review just as Steve was leaving Nashville. He said after 20 plus years, TN was still too redneck for him--so he was leaving with his girlfriend for Greenwich Village.

Like most of Earle's songs, this CD reflects his thoughts and concerns with his own life and the world around him: "Tennessee Blues" reflects this trend:

Sunset in my mirror, pedal on the floor
Bound for New York City and I won't be back no more
Won't be back no more, boys won't see me around
Goodbye guitar town

"City of Immigrants" the somewhat overplayed single from this CD talks about his love for his new home:

Livin' in a city where the streets are paved
With good intentions and a people's faith
In the sacred promise a statue made
Livin' in a city of immigrants

Probably my favorite is "Steve's Hammer" which is a dedication to Pete. Catchy tune with a strong beat and message:

One of these nights I'm gonna sing a different tune
All night long beneath the silvery moon
When the war is over
And the union's strong
Won't sing no more angry songs
One of these nights I'm gonna sing a different tune

"Satellite Radio" is a reflection on the trends in broadcasting and one DJ's wondering whether anyone's listening to him or not.

Format: Audio CD
Let me say...from the first song of "Guitar Town" ....oh those decades ago...I started a love/like relationship with Steve Earle. I love most all of Guitar Town..and since then I've loved many tunes and "I'm Allright" is an awesome album...IMHO. I listen to Steve Earle albums...WANTING to love them... and I did with this one. Steve is a true artist, tortured, talented and restless as any I've ever been aware of. I agree with another reviewer that "Tennessee Blues" is much better acoustic on the DVD than "produced" on the CD...some of the songs just have a "demo" feel to them with production values that don't seem well thought out. Bottom line..for me ...this sounds like a box of song demos found in his apartment after he dissapeared or worse and is being released without his permission.
All that said Stever Earle's "experiments" are better than 99.9% of the other songwriter/singers best ofs! I could live without his expletives printed in his liner notes directed at political commentators he doesn't agree with...and the next video they shoot I'd recommend keeping the camera off the top of his head....maybe the ZZTop Beard and Long hair have him fooled that he's not bald but its a ridiculous look IMHO. If you are a fan ...you pretty much have to take the journey...and the DVD certainly has some wonderful moments so I'd recommend that package. If you aren't a fan...get GUITAR TOWN, I'm Allright or The Definitive Collection and become one!

I have always throughly enjoyed the music of Steve Earle. However I was slightly let down by his last two albums (The Revolution Starts...Now, and Jerusalem). That's not to say they were bad, simply not quite up to par with his earlier works. But I'm happy to report that this album is a return to excellence for Steve. It's not my all time favorite, that honor goes to Transcendental Blues, but it is great nonetheless and I certainly recommend it!

Will this be Steve Earle's over-looked forgotten masterpiece?
It took me a while but I finally got on to Washington Square Serenade....
This is top notch Steve Earle like none before... a must have !!
I wanted it to be soo good when it came out then was turned off by Satellite Radio
and City Of Immigrants, both of which were heavily played on the radio...
Take out those 2 songs and you have a perfect album...

Some have said WSS comes off as Steve talking or rambling through songs ranting
and raving about more Steve Earle complaints... This is not the case...
WSS is full of acoustic serenades about life, women and love.

The facts are I have become VERY fond of WSS...
I think it is going to take over the #1 spot !!

The beginning notes of Tennessee Blues immediately grab you and is a preview
of the rest of the cd.....minus Immigrants and satellite radio songs....
I can't get enough of Down Here Below, Sparkle and Shine, Down in the Hole..
It's a national treasure to have this type of music marked as "American Made".

If you are into driving acoustic finger-picked ballads that rock - look no further.
Steve Earle has miraculously come out with what is essentially a masterpiece.
Maybe even his best yet... Which doesn't seem feasible to accomplish such a feat.

Real musicians "age like wine" and Steve Earle is a "real" musician..
In time - - It only gets better ..

The DVD is a real winner here and is worth the extra cash..

Highly Recommended for ALL Ages
