Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

Its different, but still great. hes more introspective and in touch with deep shit than before. but hes still great.

If he can write vampires 10+ years after Decoration Day, guys still got it. easily.

flashes of brilliance pre-sobriety. almost all brilliance post-sobriety.

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

i don't think his writing has wavered at all. his output has been outstanding post sobriety. in fact, i think it is better.

songs like elephant, speed trap town and maybe it's time are proof...also, just when you think love songs are becoming stale and cliche, he fucking writes "if we were vampires"

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

I think his output has been a lot more consistent since being sober. I love his pre-sober stuff but I also love his post-sober stuff just as much. He's grown as an artist and can't blame him for making himself better. Seeing him live and hearing the 400 unit, you can tell they really work hard at being a tight band. I don't think the band would have lasted this long had he not gotten sober.

Like Balvenie stated, Elephant, Speed Trap Town, Yvette, those songs are hands down masterpieces.

Have you seen him live? I understand FJM isn’t for everyone, but if you go in with an open mind I’d bet you’d be impressed by his performance.

I'll be curious to hear your thoughts afterwards. His stage presence isn't for everyone either, but the dude can sing and his band is very good.

I'm excited for this tour. Just got tickets for Berkeley.
