    Stellar continuation of a burgeoning songsmith

    Many music aficionados know Jason Isbell as the guy who played a mean guitar on many of the noteworthy songs written by Alabama's slamming Drive-by-Truckers. 2011's 'Southeastern' and now 2015's 'Something More Than Free' have perhaps highlighted Isbell's prowess still further. The current album evolves from 'Southeastern's' melancholy tone, unleashing a songwriting confidence that is matched only by fellow Alabamians, the eponymous, Alabama Shakes. Buy this record my friends, you will not be disappointed. Highlights: '24 Frames, Speedtrap Town, Hudson Commodore, and To a Band That I loved.' I cannot name a lowlight on this record. Enjoy!

    No one can capture an image in their lyrics like Jason Isbell. This has a country feel to the songs, but if your a rock and roller like I am don't let that scare you. Excellent songwriter that speaks from the working mans point of view. Check out his previous album Southeastern, which in my opinion was album of the year in 2014.

    Good but not Southeastern

    Another solid Jason Isbell offering but Southeastern was better, if for no other reason of the out of left field humor of Super 8. Maybe it is quibbling as Jason Isbell still crushes pretty much every other songwriter working.

    Although I feel that "Southeastern" is a much better album, I was still thoroughly impressed with SMTF. Fans of Isbell should purchase immediately, they will not be disappointed.

    Growing up a few miles from his hometown, I totally relate to this album. It reaches deep down into the small towns of North Alabama and grabs you by the guts.

    His second album after getting sober is as good as his previous one since getting sober (Southeastern) - intimate, personal, difficult at times, but worth the effort.

    Jason Isbell writes beautiful songs. This album has a mix of rockin and country tunes. Amanda Shires fiddles like an angel. If you haven't heard it don't miss out.

    I guess I expected more of a Drive- By-Truckers sort of record, though Jason Isbell's songwriting is really superb. It just doesn't rock the way I had hoped.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
