I have it if you still need it. One of my favorite driving CD's. The UT stuff is really good.

I think the issue here is the fact that "country music" has sucked for decades. A whole generation even. A lot of folks can't get past this paradigm of horrible music. That's kind of the whole point of this album IMO. And what UT was doing. They introduced a little of the old country/folk twang to a...

After dozens of listens I've realized that this is the first Son Volt album since WST that I don't feel the need to skip a song or two here and there. I voted for the new one.

This record is flat-out amazing! I've enjoyed everything Son Volt and Jay have ever released, but Honky Tonk is truly special.

Took me a few listens but I'm just in love with this album. With all the crap "popular" music out there these days we're very lucky to have this guy writing this music with so much integrity.

I'd have to agree. Instant classic. Here's a live version from NYC that was posted here a while back.

Arrogant Bastard Ale. I'm usually an IPA kinda guy but this stuff is just awesome. I can only find it in 22oz bottles. It's bitter and sweet at the same time. So good
