Before March 16-20, 1992 secured Uncle Tupelo's place as Commanders in Chief of the alt-country assault during the early '90s, Still Feel Gone stated emphatically that they were no musical tumbleweeds. Though twangy, lap-steel-heavy ditties like "Watch Me Fall" and "Still Be Around" cradle a country heart, the bulk of this disc is a nod to Uncle Tupelo's garage- and punk-rock heritage. The songs find their hooks in the twittery vocals of Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, but beware the rapid-fire drumming of Mike Heidorn. When Uncle Tupelo fires up its tribute to late Minuteman D. Boon, you'll realize there's more to these country boys than meets the ear. This 2003 expanded and remastered version includes three unreleased demos, the "Sauget Wind" single, and their rare cover of the Soft Boys' "I Wanna Destoy You." --Nick Heil

"Still Feel Gone is the only Uncle Tupelo album without any covers (well the bonus material has a cover) and it truly shows the talents of a great pioneer band.There is less "twang" in this CD compared to their first album "No Depression" but the same basic music formula stands true, country roots with punk and folk influence.When listening to this CD no song really jumps out at you like Screen Door and No Depression did on the first album, but Still Feel Gone does not have any musical let downs either.I was glad to see Sauget Wind make the bonus material; it is one of my favorite Farrar-penned songs Uncle Tupelo ever recorded. The acoustic demo of "Looking For a Way Out" gives a great contrast of sound to the plugged in version on the album proper. It also gives the listen an idea of what Uncle Tupelo will do in their third album; the acoustic "March 16-20".Overall, this disk warrants more than the two stars that Rolling Stone gave it. It stands the test of time along with all the Uncle Tupelo albums."

at first listen to this remastered disc I was amazed.
thrown back at how well the songs work and feel.
this is by far the most consistent album of all the UT releases.
I highly recommend this one!
A period of transition, as one reviewer says, Not quite!
These boys wanted it and they got it. The musicianship is all there. You can't miss it!
It really shows just how well practiced these songs were and they come across that way.
I've heard these tracks in different ways and they all work just the way great songs should.
A universal arsenal of classic alt-country with a touch of sin........."
Still feel gone, indeed...

"a month or so ago, a buddy burned me a copy of some UT bootleg from the mid 90s (it's unofficially called 'Last Call') and though i had most of the songs, it came across as a revelation. the only missing cd i had was 'still feel gone' (i got into the band just as they were breaking up), and now i have it. the buddy who burned me the live cd said 'y'know, that band never should have broken up. those two guys brought out the best in each other, and while there are some good wilco and son volt songs, those first three albums were the high water mark.' alas, after listening to this, and going into the back catalogue to hear anodyne and march 17-21, 1992, i sadly must agree. these guys were BEYOND great; the best thing that american music produced since Gram's Flying Burrito Brothers... what fine, fine music..."
