A little bit country, a little bit rock & roll, Steve Earle has bounced between those extremes for years, producing great albums of nearly-straight country and totally-hard rock. On I Feel Alright, though, Earle finally finds a way to blend the styles seamlessly. Whether begging for a forgiveness he probably doesn't deserve on the deceptively sweet "Valentine's Day," or steadfastly refusing even the idea of forgiveness on the Stonesy "Unrepentant," Earle rocks and twangs in equal measure--and never more thrillingly than on "You're Still Standing There," his grateful duet with Lucinda Williams. Earle's best work, at least so far. --David Cantwell

This is the album that began to put Steve Earle into the category of the best american musical artist currently working. From the opening strands of "I Feel Alright" to the closing pop tune of " You're Still Standing There", there's not a misstep on the album. Train A Comin' began Earle's return to form, but this is the first major step on the way to his stature as a premier artist. As a group the trilogy of: this record, along with "El Corazon" and "Transcendental Blues" is as great a trio of records as any artist has released since the early days of Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. I used to think El Corazon was Earle's creative peak, but the more I listen to I Feel Alright, the more I can't separate the two. Anyone out there who likes rock and roll, alt country, or alt folk will love this record. From the raucous "Unrepentant" to the quiet "Valentines Day", to the twangy "South Nashville Blues", every base is covered and there's not a bad track on it.

After a series of what has now been five 5 strong albums after his release, it's now almost hard to remember back to the time when Earle was, as he calls it in album's liner notes, "locked up." "I Feel Alright" was actually the second album Earle released after his release, but it is the single Earle record that addresses that period of his life most directly, and more than that, his most personal record either before or after kicking the heroin habit that threatened to ruin his career. From the tough acoustic rhythm and determined spirit that power the title track, to the bluesy dispair of "CCKMP" and "South Nashville Blues," Earle gives it all he's got for the first time since Copperhead Road. It's definately worth the effort once again. "Hard-Core Troubadour" is the kind of tune Springsteen should have written for "Born to Run." "Now She's Gone" shows that men don't have a monopoly on being bad. The bluesy shuffle and class rift of "Poor Boy" would have fit right into a Hank Williams record. "Billy and Bonnie" tells the truth about modern day Bonnie and Clydes in the form of a perfect folk ballad. 'Valentine's Day" offers a moment of quite poetry. Among the strongest tracks is the album's closer, a jangly, folky duet with the ever-brilliant Lucinda Williams.

I've been a casual fan of Steve Earle over the years and always sort of liked him. I was in a record store listening to various CDs and this was in the new release section so I put it on and three songs in, all I could think was WOW. This is not a CD that takes time to grow on you. It is evident immediately how good it is. You feel his pain but you feel his optimism on this album. As everyone else has mentioned, the Lucinda Williams duet is a real treat. If you buy one Steve Earle album this should be it. I also highly recommend El Corazon.

After years of battling cocaine and heroin addictions, and a stint in prison, Earle finally conquered his demons and came back clean and sober in 1996 with "I Feel Alright". What a surprise this album was! Comeback albums are not suppose to be this good. This was his best album since 1988's "Copperhead Road". This also marked the end of his affiliation with MCA Records, and his first recording for Warner Brothers and his own record label E-Squared Records. After doing several albums in the early 90's that had everything from all acoustic music, to a live album, to releasing a greatest hits compilation, Earle finally came back to what he does best, hard rockin' country that harkens back to the days of "Copperhead Road" and "Exit O". On the opener "I Feel Alright", Earle tells us he's been to the depths of hell, but now he's back. This is a pretty damned good song, but it gets even better with his next one, "Hardcore Troubadour". After hearing this one, I knew Earle was back. To my ear, this is one of the best songs Earle has ever penned. He addresses his drug past with CCKMP (cocaine can't kill my pain), and the rockin" Unrepentant". Some of the other standouts here are "More Than I Can Do", Now She's Gone", and the album closer "You're Still Standing There", which features a duet with the talented Lucinda Williams. One of the people who had the biggest influence on Steve Earle's music is Townes Van Zandt, who taught Earle the fine art of storytelling. Earle has learned this well, along with his knack for being able to compose great melodies. It's a great combination to have. That's why Steve Earle casts a giant shadow over just about everybody of his genre.Read more ›

I have heard of Steve Earle for years but never listened to his music. He was simply fantastic as an AA sponsor in several seasons of "The Wire" series on HBO, so I got interested...

At the end of season two his title track on this album plays the episode into final credits. It just blew me away. Not really a song written in anger, but in defiance I think. Great lyrics and musicianship all through the album. No question you can tell it was written as he was coming out of some very dark times in his life and he survived.

So many foot stompin' head shakin' tunes here-"Billy and Bonnie", "Poor Boy", "The Unrepentant". "Valentine's Day" is one of the most heartfelt songs I have ever heard.

The guy is so versatile. On this recording there is straight up classic country, blues, rockabilly, bluegrass-rock fusion. Maybe he never made it huge because the label could not put him into a catagory, and we the listeners are the beneficiaries of this multi-talented artist..

And to top it off, the recording quality of this CD is simply fantastic. I listen to it on a headphone rig, and the strings are so close and immediate. You can hear scratching strings as they move up and down the fretboard. His voice is neatly settled just in front of the instruments, so the result is a cohesive, small band of players.

I already ordered and received Guitar Town, and will be getting more....

I may be late to the party, but I am a Steve Earle fan for life!
