Album Review

Uncle Tupelo clearly defined their nervy Gram Parsons-meets-the Minutemen sound on their debut album, 1990's No Depression, and their 1991 follow up, Still Feel Gone, found them branching out into new variations of their previously established themes. While No Depression was dominated by breakneck tempos with the occasional slow, contemplative number thrown in for variety, Still Feel Gone found Uncle Tupelo taking a closer look at the middle ground, as evidenced by the high-strung acoustic guitars of "Still Be Around," the measured but powerful Crazy Horse stomp of "Looking for a Way Out," the lonesome shuffle of "True to Life," and the stark atmospherics of "If That's Alright" (the latter of which in retrospect sounds like the first dawning of the ideas Jeff Tweedy would explore with Wilco). But plenty of what made No Depression so impressive is still on view here, including the brutal stutter-step of "Gun," the simple but powerful declaration of "Watch Me Fall," and the heartfelt tribute to an obvious influence, "D. Boon." And if anything, the band sounds even more powerful this time out, and the broader picture of their abilities only confirms how strong a combination Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy, and Mike Heidorn really were. Columbia/ Legacy's 2003 reissue has been newly remastered, which gives the audio noticeably greater detail and punch, and five bonus tracks have been included — two hard-to-find single sides ("Sauget Wind" and a cover of the Soft Boys' "I Wanna Destroy You"), and early demos of three cuts from the album which differ significantly from the final versions ("Watch Me Fall," "Looking for a Way Out," and "If That's Alright"). If Still Feel Gone isn't as immediately impressive as No Depression, a few plays confirms it's still the work of a gifted band at full strength, and this reissue gives the album the special treatment it deserves.

Customer Reviews

UT never gets old

This album always sounds fresh and alive to me. Consistency wise, I'd have to say this is their 2nd or 3rd best, but it contains two of my favorite UT songs, Gun and Still Be Around (which is one of my favorite songs period). It's a shame they burned so hot and fast, but a reunion would never work, Jay and Jeff aren't as hungry (literally and figuratively) as they were back in the day... but sometimes I wonder "what if?" as I listen to this great record.

Beautiful

Country-flavored folk rock with a bite. If country music had this much real heart, I'd buy a cowboy hat. Listen to it. "Still Be Around" is an honestly sung, understatedly heart-wrenching gem. If I'd have written it, I'd be done writing songs. This is one of the best bands no one heard from the 90's. They're all heart. Music to play as you close a lonely bar.

favorite album

Since my first listen when this came out I haven't met an album that has affected me in the same way. This is what an album is supposed to be. They captured something here that is at once raw yet refined. It's difficult to explain but I haven't come across another album that for me measures up to Still Feel Gone.

Years Active: '80s, '90s

With the release of their 1990 debut LP, No Depression, the Belleville, IL, trio Uncle Tupelo launched more than simply their own career — by fusing the simplicity and honesty of country music with the bracing fury of punk, they kick-started a revolution which reverberated throughout the American underground. Thanks to a successful online site and subsequent fanzine which adopted the album's name, the tag "No Depression" became a catch-all for the like-minded artists who, along with Tupelo,...
