|Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit chronology|
Here We Rest is American musician Jason Isbell's third album, and second with his band The 400 Unit. It was released April, 12, 2011.
The album received a Metacritic score of 76 based on 15 reviews, indicating generally favorable reviews. Andrew Leahey of AllMusic found that the songs in the album had captured "archetypal characters that populate most struggling Southern towns" with a "sympathetic soundtrack of folk, country, and bar band rock & roll", one that is "bittersweet, but there’s an air of resilience". Zeth Lundy of Boston Phoenix thought that Isbell had settled into his "comfortable post-Truckers solo-artist groove," and that his voice "is now smoother, older yet less weathered." Nick Coleman of Independent on Sunday however felt that what kept the album from becoming an impressive album is "the slightness of [Isbell's] voice – and his band".
