look at all of kyle becks reviews

i wish i could fight Kyle Beck.

Good Country is right.

I thank the boys from Uncle Tupelo for all of their great music. Kyle Beck is in need of a beating.

Worth It For "Ain't No More Cane" alone

I am mostly chiming in because of the lame "official" iTunes review of this album. This idea that Son Volt's second and third albums were a letdown is a misguided myth. Trace deserves to be in every record collection. But Straightaways and Wide Swing Tremelo are brilliant albums, at times rocking, at times mellow, at times mid-tempo - but just great, great American music. This retrospective includes some of the Son Volt classics and some of the Son Volt rockers. But what puts it over the top is the rarities.The Rex's Blues duet is beautiful. Son Volt's version of Ain't No More Cane (shown on iTunes as Ain't No Game for some reason - another reason not to trust the review) is amazing. Buy it now. Tulsa County, I've Got To Know, Looking at the World Through a Windshield, the demos of Trace songs, and the live acoustic Medicine Hat all make this an album to grab for Son Volt fans and those just discovering the greatness of Jay Farrar and Son Volt.
