  • He is one of the leaders of the modern "Anti-Nashville" sound that has begun to take root in today's country music, which is long overdue
  • Sound continues to mature, i like the horns on this album
  • It is country with a lush sound, which shouldn't surprise country music lovers with some sense of history.

Reviews around thing (5.00 of 5)

  • I have his first album as well and one thing is clear, he is an artist who has a clear vision for his albums, and they are albums that benefit from listening to in their entirety
  • Just can't say enough good things about Sturgill Simpson and the beautiful music and vocals
  • He is the best thing that has happened to music in general in a very long time
  • I like his earlier albums better, but preference is a beautiful thing

Reviews around concept (5.00 of 5)

  • Awesome concept album, flows seamlessly from one song to the next
  • I have listened to his most recent interview with Joe Rogan and he clearly likes a good concept album as much as I do
  • Like great concept albums before it, it has a great flow to it, and the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts.
  • While his 2nd album explored lyrical concepts not seen in country, it still retained an authentic country sound

Reviews around production (4.42 of 5)

  • It makes me think that this might have been a better production if he'd done an album's worth of cover songs, the way The Band did on Moondog Matinee
  • Great production sound, excellent variety of song styles and a great listen from start to finish like a letter to his son.
  • This is a BEAUTIFUL album with exquisite production reminiscent of albums of the sixties when artists made albums with much thought and care
  • Great production sound, excellent variety of song styles and a great listen from start to finish like a letter to his son.
  • , I just hate the production and the way he sings on this one

Reviews around country (4.18 of 5)

  • As a person who absolutely hates the popular country music scene, this album was an absolute joy to find.
  • Possibly the best "country" music album of all time, maybe the best record to come out in the past 4 years
  • I am not at all a fan of most modern country, but can see myself listening to this album a lot in the coming months if not years.
  • I am obsessed with Sturgill, he has the authentic country sound that so many artists are missing nowadays
  • It Between The Lines" is a traditional country song that breaks out with a high-stepping brass section very reminiscent of 1979 era Ronnie Milsap

Reviews around work (4.13 of 5)

  • Sturgill took the song and made it all his own with an intense delicate power working into a storm of emotion and a wall of sound production
  • Mr Simpson is one of the finest songwriters working in the genre today
  • The guitars make your jaw drop with the sick work done by Laur Joamets, the horns are blasting some of the funkiest riffs I've heard in years, and the overall musicianship is stellar
  • If you like music and sturgil this is a phenomenal work of art
  • Some of his earlier work sounded like a very good Waylon Jennings knockoff

Reviews around sturgill (4.08 of 5)

  • Sturgill can do no wrong in my mind
  • Sturgill strikes again!
  • Congrats Sturgill!I guess this album would upset people that want Sturgill to stay stagnant.
  • Now this album takes us to a new level of how awesome Sturgill Simpson is!
  • If you want to know how good Sturgill is live youtube search his performance of "All Around You" on late night with Jimmy Fallon which brought the audience to their feet

Reviews around cd (3.99 of 5)

  • This CD is absolutely phenomenal... buy it now :PI don't even like country music, at all.
  • It isn't a bad CD, it just isn't what he had been doing or the expected evolution of that path
  • Also, I like getting a physical CD instead of just a digital copy
  • Very good cd, a mix of of country and rock in a good way
  • Really enjoying his new CD, just as much as his other 2.

Reviews around song (3.81 of 5)

  • (Live A Little)" is my favorite song from the album for many reasons
  • Unfortunately, they'll likely be yelling catcalls during Simpson's slower songs (i.e. Sarah).From the get-go, I really like the cover of In Bloom.
  • Not a bad song on the album and his cover of Nirvana's In Bloom is worth the price of the album
  • The song that was good kept me a awake better than the rest
  • The first song on this album, Welcome To Earth, made me cry
  • Read remaining 33 reviews for song

Reviews around head (1.00 of 5)

  • This is one of those albums that might leave you scratching your head a little bit, but you will do so with a smile on your face while hitting the replay button.
  • I fell head over heals in love with Sturgill Simpson's work when he released Metamodern Sounds in Country Music.
