This CD by Steve Earle marks, in my mind, the second half of his career. The first half had great music but was marred by drug use and a prison stint. After he got out, this CD has the best music from start to finish since his debut CD, Guitar Town. Since then, he has hit and missed the mark of subsequent releases but this one hit the bullseye with me.
Top American Artist

"This is the album that began to put Steve Earle into the category of the best american musical artist currently working. From the opening strands of "I Feel Alright" to the closing pop tune of " You're Still Standing There", there's not a misstep on the album. Train A Comin' began Earle's return to form, but this is the first major step on the way to his stature as a premier artist. As a group the trilogy of: this record, along with "El Corazon" and "Transcendental Blues" is as great a trio of records as any artist has released since the early days of Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. I used to think El Corazon was Earle's creative peak, but the more I listen to I Feel Alright, the more I can't separate the two. Anyone out there who likes rock and roll, alt country, or alt folk will love this record. From the raucous "Unrepentant" to the quiet "Valentines Day", to the twangy "South Nashville Blues", every base is covered and there's not a bad track on it."
I Feel It's a Darn Good Album

"Steve Earle went all the way to the edge of chemical oblivion and managed to pull himself back from the brink. He sings about it frankly on "CCKMP," which stands for Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain, one of the most harrowing songs ever commited to wax (plastic?). It is the centerpiece to "I Feel Alright," which marked the return of Earle as a creative force after all of his personal troubles. No, it is not a happy album, but it also isn't a world class bummer fest like Neil Young's classic "Tonight's the Night." The best of the remaining tracks are "Harcore Troubadour," the title track, the ballad "Valentine's Day," "South Nashville Blues," and the duet with Lucinda Williams," You're Still Standing There," the astonishment of which could be directed at Earle himself. Not every track is a classic, but enough of them are to make it a first rate album."
