Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit: Here We Rest
Buy! - (Lightning Rod)
The third album from the former Drive-By Truckers guitarist is his finest collection of songs to date, drawing deeply upon country, soul and folk to paint poignant, beautifully crafted portraits of folks going through hard times in his native North Alabama. While there are more acoustic-oriented songs this time around, Isbell also leaves room for some of his scorching electric guitar work. 3/15/2011 - Don Yates
