If Wilco was Jeff Tweedy’s response to the break-up of Uncle Tupelo, bandmate Jay Farrar’s was to form Son Volt. Trace was the first album under the name, and it is something of a landmark of alt-country. It is reissued here as a deluxe edition, the CD version including a whole live show on a second disc.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 10th December 2016
Son Volt's Trace is a great album, especially for those you who enjoy fantastic lyrical story telling. The music and lyrics, while certainly melancholy and at times dark and depressing, paint pictures of love lost, loneliness, sadness, and desperation, which makes is so compelling and enjoyable to listen to. I discovered Son Volt via an Internet Radio station was immediately intrigued by their sound. It is tough to pigeon-hole Son Volt into a particular genre. Their sound is an amalgamation of country, rock, a little punk.
