Sealed 1981 Original. “After The Bleak, Showbiz Disappointment Of 1980's I've Got Something To Say, David Allan Coe Showed His Eternal Penchant For Rebounding By Releasing What Is Arguably The Finest Album Of His Career In 1981. Invictus Means Unconquered Is A Solid Collection Of Originals, Co-Writes, And A Cover Or Two That Is So Emotionally Riveting, Gorgeously Played And Sung, And Tastefully Produced It's A Shame It Was Released At The Height Of Urban Cowboy-Ism And Sank Without A Trace. This Time Out, Coe Really Did Have Something To Say, Evidenced By The Poem "Invictus" That Appears As An Epigraph For The Album. Billy Sherrill Took A Front Production Seat And Ron Bledsoe Concentrated On The Instrumentation And The Mix. The Band Is Crack On Invictus; Bledsoe Held The Reins Tight And Let Sherrill Create An Atmosphere That Was Both Immediate And Dreamy. While There Isn't A Weak Second On This Disc, Two Other Tracks Stand Out Above The Rest: Coe's Version Of Silverstein's "Someplace To Come To When It Rains" And He And Clark's Outlaw Anthem Dedicated To John Dillinger, "I Love Robbin' Banks." From Top To Bottom, Invictus Means Unconquered Towers Above Most Country Records Not Only Of The Era, But Of All Time. It's A Quintessential Example Of Everything Country Music Can Achieve When It Is Honest, True, And From The Center Of A Broken Heart.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
