  • Summary: Steve Earle's latest album features his wife Allison Moorer, as well as the Brazilian group Forro in the Dark.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 16 out of 25
  2. Negative: 1 out of 25
  1. An angry Steve Earle is something to behold, but watch out for the man when he's in love.
  2. This album proves that when Earle reconnects to the sheer joy of making music the results can be powerful.
  3. 80
    Movement and change remain his inspiration. [Oct 2007, p.107]
  4. There’s an urban-informed edge to much of the disc.
  5. All things considered, Washington Square Serenade is a bit nonchalant by Earle's standards.
  6. 60
    He's reworking his own territory. Which is why we expected the song about sweaty illegals to have a better twisted ending than "all of is are immigrants," and the tune about meth addiction to fell, well, lived in. [Oct 2007, p.100]
  7. Washington Square Serenade is an utterly unlistenable failure. [Fall 2007, p.87]
