Listing Detail Tabs

Clear-headed, open-hearted and joyous, Steve Earle's Transcendental Blues is as essential an album as Nashville will offer in 2000. Of course, at this point in a career, most older-and-wiser hell-raisers are content to feint those rebellious moves of old in the hopes that if you squint, it still looks like they're charging the barricades. But perhaps not surprisingly for a six-times divorcé who once named an album The Hard Way and sounded like he meant it, Earle pulls no punches, delivering this full-throttle set with the energy of someone half his age and the sharpened focus of hard-won honesty ("I Don't Want To Lose You Yet"), humility ("I Can Wait") and empathy ("Over Yonder [Jonathan's Song]"). Featuring able contributions from sister Stacey ("When I Fall"), Irish accordionist Sharron Shannon's band (Celtic knees-ups "Steve's Last Ramble" and "The Galway Girl"), the ghost of Revolver-era Beatles ("Everyone's In Love With You") and bluegrass ("Until The Day I Die"), Earle may have found the perfect balance between his restless musical ambitions and the thunderous sounds his core audience will pay good tattoo-and-beer money to hear again. And in the unabashed, gut-driven rock & roll wallop of "Another Town" and "Wherever I Go", it's hard to believe even the hardest of them will feel shortchanged. Evidently, Steve Earle still ain't satisfied. Much to everyone else's satisfaction.
