Jason Isbell

Music Album Review: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - The Nashville Sound (8/10)

Jason Isbell follows up 2015’s Something More Than Free with an album of equal musical strength and value. The word “Americana” gets bandied about often, but this artist truly defines it. His detailed story-telling and southern gothic perspective on tunes like “Cumberland Gap” and “Tupelo” depict desperation and small town reality like no other. And songs like “Chaos and Clothes” match old-school country with contemporary lyrical sensibilities. The Nashville Sound’s blend of ballads rockers will resonate with new fans as well as the faithful.
