Re: Jason Isbell - Reunions

I think "Dreamsicle" is up there with his best and "What Have I Done to Help" is absolutely in the running for his worst. Eek.

Broke down and listened to Armageddon’s Back In Town. I sort of wish I hadn’t. It may grow on me and probably will but after one listen it sounds like this would go on a new Patterson solo album.
