Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 458/500!
Jason Isbell's songs are filled with ghosts. They're haunted by spirits both welcome and unwelcome, by the personal and historical legacies that make us who we are. Nowhere is this more evident than on his 2013 breakthrough album Southeastern. Isbell offers confessions, reflections, and promises that confront and make communion with those who have come before and remain with us still. Its 12 tracks represent an extended meditation on the concept articulated by another celebrated southern storyteller, author William Faulkner: "The past is never dead. It isn't even past."
Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Southeastern with a newly remastered version of Isbell's now classic album.
Southeastern is easily Isbell's best solo album — his most richly conceived and generously written.
Isbell is among the finest lyricists working today, excelling at wordplay in the purest sense of the term, finding the music in language, how it sounds and flows and fits within the surrounding sounds... It's the little details that ring truest, one true line after another.
The record, which evokes powerful and intimate classics like Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel of Love and Rosanne Cash's Interiors, is a breakthrough for Isbell — prickly with loss, forgiveness, newfound sobriety and second chances...
The album set a standard for new-age Seventies-inspired singer-songwriters and coronated the Alabama native and his wife and bandmate, Amanda Shires, as the new king and queen of Americana.
