Uncle Tupelo - Still Feel Gone
Feb 21, 2021
I feel like this is the most overlooked record in the Uncle Tupelo catalog. It doesn't have the immediacy of the debut, the acoustic concept of the third, or the legacy of "Anodyne". But it has so much going for it. It has the first truly great Tweedy song, in "Gun". And two of the best Fararr cuts with "Still Be Around" and "True To Life". It also has the best bonus track in Uncle Tupelo history with their cover of "I Wanna Destroy You". It doesn't go as hard with the riffs on the first record and therefore serves as a nice transition between "No Depression" and the all acoustic "March". My one major gripe with the album is the recording quality ain't really all that great. The low quality worked on the debut because it played into the charm, but it doesn't really cater to these songs as well. They really stepped in up the quality on "March" making this album sound extra thin imo. Still fucking rocks tho.
