Telegraph: Best Country Albums of 2015

Something More Than Free was rated 5 stars and featured in The Telegraph’s Best Country Albums of 2015.

Two things struck me when I opened the album package. One, how much Isbell looks like Vince Vaughn in True Detective; and two, how many words there are in a sheet of Isbell lyrics. Happily, the words are wonderful and Something More Than Free is an album that grows and grows on you. Producer Dave Cobb is in fine action again and gets the best from the settings behind Isbell’s effecting voice. Some of the songs are simply splendid – Speed Trap Town, 24 Frames  (“You thought God was an architect, now you know/He’s something like a pipe bomb ready to blow”) and the tender Flagship – but my own favourite was the catchy and beguiling tale Hudson Commodore. All this and lovely fiddle playing from his wife Amanda Shires. ★★★★★
