If you like a true spirit and fire

This will be short and to the point. Earle is the Shakespeare of gritty, real and also very tender truths about life, loving, getting over the disappointments in life and still be able to love life and sing about it.

Spectacular

MusicExpert

This is five stars. Period. Steve Earle is one of the greatest songwriters playing today. On this album, you can see why he's one of the finest artists alive. But don't stop here. Get every one of his albums!

I agree!

alsgarage

I don't know if its his best because I've just started listening to him, but I do know that its among the top 5 of my favorite albums of all time, and I am not just a casual music fan. It has everything.

His best

aikicinema

One of the finest albums anywhere ever period. I Can Wait is my anthem.

Good, but not his best

fredboehmke

I love Steve Earle, so I like this. But it's a missing a little edge that some of his other records have. Go for The Mountain, Train a Comin', or I Feel Alright first, then fill out your collection with this when you want more.

A classic

Not only Steve Earle's best but one of the best records ever. Great clean production and solid songs. Back when you never thought he'd go to ProTools... and this is the reason why. Listen to this and compare it to Washington Square Serenade - this is what he's about. Hope we get him back someday. First Chuck Prophet, now Steve Earle... man they sounded good back then though!

A Field Report from the New Country

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

Whither country music - or will it wither? Most of the c&w on strut at the recent CMA awards had more to do with 80's power-rock and 00's teen-pop than the morning farm report. In recent years, an alt-country movement in such Willy-billy suburbs as Brooklyn's Williamsburg has waved a country flag, along with a taste for trucker's caps and Pabst Blue Ribbon. This isn't a sudden outcropping on the range; ever since Gram Parsons… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Steve Earle is a rebel. Not in the Hollywood/James Dean/Easy Rider/rebel-against-society sense, but rather in a real and personal way. Throughout his life and career he has rebelled against the very industry that surrounded him and did not find the freedom he sought until he started his own label, E-Squared. He rebelled against his common sense and his health in search of true American artistry and did not find the freedom he sought until he hit the bottom of addiction, and he continues to rebel against mainstream American culture and politics with his attitudes and songs; Transcendental Blues is no exception. Transcendental Blues walks the line between Steve Earle the country-rock rebel who gave the world Copperhead Road and Guitar Town and Steve Earle the traditionalist who opened a new chapter in bluegrass with his last release, The Mountain. This album rocks with songs like “Everyone’s in Love with You” and “All My Life.” It soothes with “The Boy Who Never Cried” and “Lonelier Than This,” and it two-steps with new country like “The Galway Girl” and “Until the Day I Die.” Fans of alternative country music sing the praises of artists like Charlie Robison, Jack Ingram, and Robert Earl Keen, Jr., but Earle proves again and again that he is the original alternative to the glossy side of Nashville. Earle cut the path that all his followers thankfully hike along, avoiding the weeds and branches that made him what he is today. – Michael Cusanelli
