Jason Isbell - The Nashville Sound album cover

Jason Isbell

The Nashville Sound, 2017

8.5 / 10

Had Jason Isbell stopped making music after his run with the Drive-By Truckers, his output would have already been legendary enough. “Outfit,” and “Goddamn Lonely Love,” alone are inches away ...

7.0 / 10

I don’t see myself as a hip-hop expert, but I think it’s fair to say that the genre is pretty jaded. Mainstream rap like Chingy or Soulja Boy or whatever ...
