Re: Homecoming 2020! Feb 13-15

Finally getting the time (and energy, since Sunday was a goner) to put down my thoughts here. First things first - met a bunch of great people at HC; some from here and some not - if you saw a tall skinny dude rocking out in a red rain jacket, that was me (and if you were one of the kind strangers w...

It's definitely growing on me, but the production/musicality is the weak point. Still think Ryan Adams would've done a better job producing Southeastern & SMTF. Are you high? Dave Cobb is amazing at what he does. His production credits over the years are some of my favorite recent albums. I'd t...

Re: Jason Isbell - Something More Than Free 7/17

Thanks for the hook-up guys Listened to it twice now. I suspect it'll grow on me, but the music is a bit too mainstream for my tastes. I'd put this one below his self-titled album and Southeastern. Only song I dislike at this point is How to Forget. Not sure what the big fuss about If It Takes a Lif...
