Slaid Cleaves in Concert
Slaid Cleaves has made a fistful of very fine albums since his migration from Maine down to Texas in the '90s, with every release from 1997's No Angel Knows through 2009's Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away packing at least two or three songs guaranteed to flat knock the wind out of you. But his 2000 breakthrough, Broke Down, has long gone unmatched as Cleaves' end-to-end masterwork  until now, that is. It's hard to pinpoint what it is exactly that distinguishes Still Fighting the War as a truly great Cleaves album rather than "just" another really good one, though, because it's the whole package rather than any particular song or songs that really resonates. The immediately inviting, toasty warmth of Cleaves' voice, of course, has always been a given. Sandy but smooth, comforting and at times beautifully uplifting but always grounded with a tinge of weathered and world-weary regret, it's one of the most distinctive and emotionally effective instruments in all of Americana.
