An American Treasure!

BSDETECTER

I stumbled across Jason Isbell through his work in the Drive By Truckers. I started to look into Jason's solo career after listening to an interview he did with Marc Maron. I have been randomly working my way through Mr Isbell's catalogue. It is clear to me this guy is an American Treasure.....Support him when he comes to a town near you!

Most songwriters produce two or three tracks per album that transcend, that soar, if they're fortunate. Jason Isbell may have two or three songs in his career that don't crawl inside you and rest. His previous album, Southeastern, has been in my car for over a year and a half. Something More Than Free has joined Southeastern, and I'm expected another lengthy run. Isbell's words Strike hard - the man too tired to go to church who still thanks God "for the work," the man vowing to remain close to his love, and 24 Frames..."You thought God was an architect, know you know, He's something like a pipe bomb ready to blow." This is songwriting of the highest order, and songs that remain inside your heart and brain long after the listening.

Something More Than Free

zeppyfish

Jason Isbell has been quietly building a reputation as a songwriter for the past decade, first with Drive-By Truckers, then on his first two solo records, and finally with the celebrated 2014 release, Southwestern. On this new album, Isbell takes it to another level. In fact, he seems to have crossed over into Great American Songwriter territory. Each of the 11 tracks here is its own short story, most of them centered around fictitious characters rather than Jason's own experiences. But in every case, he paints such a believable portrait, you'd swear he was telling his own story. Names like Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, even Bob Dylan come to mind. Jason Isbell is that kind of singer/songwriter, and Something More Than Free proves it.
