Rolling Stone (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Tony Brown's bright heartland-rock production provides a stark contrast to Earle's gritty lyrics....[Earle's] passionate, solo-acoustic delivery of Bruce Springsteen's 'Nebraska' is sublime."Q (Magazine) (p.121) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he title track and 'The Devil's Right Hand' remain Earle staples..."Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.43) - "...The best of his early albums, characterized by the rock hard 'Devil's Right Hand' and 'Snake Oil'..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Its real strength still lies in the performances of Earle and his band, matching superbly rough-edged musicianship with heartfelt emotion in a way which brings to mind the very different but equally committed matching of Neil Young and Crazy Horse."62.98927

Rolling Stone (6/22/00, pp.134-5) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...An intermittenly twangy, often trippy and, yes, generally transcendant outing....Earle keeps his material hewed to a basic theme - the universality of the blues - and finds that home truth everywhere his muse takes him..."Spin (7/00, pp.155,157) - 7 out of 10 - "...The record sounds great...[his] most ambitious yet....[He] explores some well-traveled roads: Beatlesque psychedelia; Irish reels; bluegrass....and, of course, the guns-blazin' badass stompers..."Entertainment Weekly (6/9/00, pp.78-9) - "...He's thrown open the gates. Walking through the psychedelic title track, the RUBBER SOUL-ish pop, the garage rock, and the lovely Eire-meets-Tennessee 'The Galway Girl', BLUES is his musical road map..." - Rating: A-Q (7/00, p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...There is no doubt that his songwriting chops just keep getting better...proving his mastery of every country-rock style..."Magnet (1-2/01, p.44) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2000" - "...The crowning achievement of Nashville's king of the road..."Down Beat (3/01, p.73) - 4.5 out of 5 - "Th ebest of Earle's career is a brilliant melange of rootsy country, blazing rock, Irish folk, uptempo bluegrass and Beatlesque pop..."No Depression (5-6/00, pp.110-1) - "...There is much to suggest that a little less hair and a little more gut are matters of nuance,, and nuance is what it's eventually all about....it is socked with good things...making loyalists glad they've been on board for the whole dang oeuvre..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/00, p.106) - "...He bares his spiritual chest...with a Lennonesque honesty and a vocal delivery that increasingly resembles Tom Petty's sub-Dylan sneer..."50.39142

Spin (8/95, pp.92-93) - 8 - Very Good - "...Earle offers neither contrite confessionals nor toothless mush. He's too dogged and proud to be anything but himself....[His] redemptive gift lies in his ability to evoke poignance and loss without spilling into sentimentality....Truth be told, he makes no mistakes..."Entertainment Weekly (5/5/95, p.71) - "...Nashville's baddest boy returns, after a five-year-absence, with an acoustic album of early material, new songs, and covers by country-folk mentors like Townes Van Zandt....Earle is nothing short of a narrative master..." - Rating: BQ (2/96, p.65) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.Q (7/95, p.135) - 3 Stars - Good - "...sounds like a man beginning to feel his way around again after a long period out of circulation. He's gone back to where he started, making an acoustic album with the emphasis on the songs....He may be bowed but he's plainly not beaten."Sing Out! (8-10/95, p.148) - "...the writing is crisp and tough, deeply rooted in tradition but never self-consciously folky, and Earle sounds as if he has lived every word..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.111) - "...TRAIN A COMIN' is all acoustic....the feel of the record is also retrospective...very live, ramshackle and raw. Earle plays his guitar and mandolin parts with customary vigour and sings his heart out in his ragged but right voice..."NME (Magazine) (7/15/95, p.49) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a slew of smart tunes played simply on guitar, mandolin and stuff....He was always doomed by comparisons to Springsteen in the past but these days Earle comes over like a trainee Johnny Cash: pithy, grim-voiced, strangely mythical..."44.09249
