THE DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS – UGLY BUILDINGS, WHORES & POLITICIANS (GREATEST HITS 1998-2009)

If I said, “Quick! Name your top 5 tracks from the Truckers”, odds are all of your tracks would come from the Southern Rock Opera to the The Dirty South era of the band. I know they are for me. Truth be told, despite any enthusiasm I might muster for their new albums as they come out, the simple fact is that only 2 or 3 songs from the post-TDS Truckers stand any test of time. So I was a little skeptical when, looking at the cover, I saw there was a DBT Greatest Hits album coming out.

Now, I know this site is named after a Drive-By Truckers song. I’m not ashamed of that fact and I know that I’ve been as guilty as anyone of trying really (sometimes too) hard to like the last few DBT albums. I accept that (and that’s why the original reviews stay up). With that said, I am gonna give you my exact initial thoughts when I opened the envelope and saw a DBT Greatest Hits album had showed up at my house:

Whoa! That’s Wes Freed artwork.
Hmm. A DBT Greatest Hits album. How the fuck did I not hear about that?
God, what bullshit is gonna be on this?
Hmm. New West is putting it out.
::Quick scan::
No, Shonna songs, DBT must not have been involved in the curating of this.
Hell, it might not be that bad after all.

Sadly, it took me believing that the actual band may not have been involved in the curating of the songs for me to think that it might be good. Truth is, outside of “World Of Hurt”, I don’t think any DBT fan can be disappointed in the songs on this collection. That said, every fan on earth is gonna think it’s missing “a track or two” and for me it‘s “Decoration Day” and “Women Without Whiskey” but the songs that are here are strong.

You’re probably wondering why you should buy this since you already have all the albums. To that, the only reason I can offer is ‘cause it’s a legit Greatest Hits collection of songs and they’re all mastered to the same levels. Or that it’s a really good collection from the golden era of the Truckers, so if you’re looking for an easy way to expose a n00b to that which is DBT you could do much worse than Ugly Buildings, Whores and Politicians.

Drive-By Truckers – The Living Bubba
Drive-By Truckers – Bulldozers and Dirt
Drive-By Truckers – Gravity’s Gone (Remix)

TOP 3: DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS

I’ll admit it. I like doing the Top 5 posts we were doing back in the day. Unfortunately, the interest seemed to die out over time and ever since I’ve been trying to think of another reoccurring theme post I could do on Wednesdays. This idea hit me a couple of weeks ago and I thought I’d give it a try and see if it caught on at all. Please, lemme know if you think it’s total cheese and should be dropped immediately.

Anyhow, the idea is to pick your top 3 songs from a band and post them in the comments. Then, we’ll make a compilation of the Top 5 picks and post that on Monday.

This week’s band is the only one it could be, the one that gave this site it’s name….The Drive-By Truckers.

Here are my choices (in order):

Drive-By Truckers – Zip City
Drive-By Truckers – Never Gonna Change
Drive-By Truckers – Women Without Whiskey

30 DAY SONG CHALLENGE: DAY 19:

So, I’ve decided to do this facebook 30 Day Song Challenge (you can see previous days here) thing and I figured I’d do it here on ninebullets. Feel free to contribute your thoughts in the comments section.

DAY 19: A SONG FROM YOUR FAVORITE ALBUM:

When reading through the list of subjects each day had the first time I just assumed this day would feature a song from Lucero’s self-titled album but the longer I thought about it the clearer it became that that was not gonna be the case. Look, I know I pan on the Truckers sometimes but the truth is, up through The Dirty South they could do no wrong and if I were forced to sit in a room and only listen to 1 album for the rest of my days, The Dirty South would be that album so here’s my favorite song from it:

The Drive-By Truckers – Never Gonna Change
