Editorial Reviews

Grammy-Award winner Dwight Yoakam presents his first all new studio album in seven years, 3 Pears (Warner Bros. Records). The 12-track release, his 26th, is produced by Yoakam, along with two songs co-produced with Beck: "A Heart Like Mine" and "Missing Heart".

3 Pears exemplifies Yoakam s ability to incorporate multiple, competing influences into a piece of cohesive art. It balances his country core with a fiercely independent embrace of rock, Americana, pop and soul and builds on his trademark edginess with a notable, growing positivity. 3 Pears contains heartfelt love songs, which showcase Yoakam s authentic country vocals while maintaining his unmistakable classic sound.

With Dwight Yoakam, you sort of learn to (happily) drop your expectations in the face of some erratic career moves. But I never expected this: a full-on schooling of his (supposed) contemporaries, a sly, sarcastic take on his own older sound, like Dwight + 8" Lift Kit, crushing everything in its path, all the faux-hawked tweeting country-poser crowd running in horror. I'm loving the fact that his album will never even be on the cheese-country radar: good for them. They don't deserve this stuff.

Example: "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke" just refuses to let up, and extends itself past a few false-endings to a place we were always hoping he'd go: an atom-bomb bar-band smack upside the head. "A Heart Like Mine" is Bakersfield on Caffeine, a shut-up-and-hold-on anthem of modern confidence with a vocal performance that should silence all doubters as to whether or not he's "got it". Then there's "Rock It All Away", a collision of Son Volt's grain-elevator chordage and gorgeous melody from the deepest Dwight classic reverie. I'm also a fan of "Missing Heart", one of the very few songs in 3/4 time I can stand lately, placed squarely there by a silent, forlorn dual-slide-guitar attack that would make the perfect soundtrack music. The entire album is full of pet moments and gripping excitement.

Fans of Dwight will dig this a lot, and celebrate its swift kick in the pants. Fans of what country music has become in the post-Idol era will not even know it's out there. Tragic, perhaps, but we're fine to let it go. Dwight was never about the interstate, he's much happier taking us down the back roads. At top speed, of course.

If you think that his album "Gone" was one of his best (and most underrated) albums, then you will love this CD. Dwight long ago left the confines of limiting his songs to any "country" genre. His musical influences were shaped by AM radio where country songs bumped up against rock and roll, soul and smooth ballads. This album is a culmination of all those influences from the Burrito Brothers to the Byrds to Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, the Beatles and beyond. He continues his defiant musical stance of writing songs with meaning and creating music that echo all the sounds he loves to hear. His song "Waterfall" is deceptive here. It comes across as almost a nursery rhyme kind of song. But is so much more than that -- there is wit, humor and pathos working in the lyrics and melody. Another reason to own this CD is the last song -- just Dwight's sorrow-filled, soulful tenor and a solo piano reminding the listener that he or she still has "A long way to go". I defy anyone to listen to this song and not get a bit choked up. Its right up there with his most beautiful ballads such as "Dreams of Clay" and "Last Heart in Line".

Let me start by saying that I'm still in the honeymoon period for this album and I'm a huge dwight and pete anderson fan. My favorite dwight albums are the ones that Pete produced and his guitar licks were the first thing that drew me to dwight. I feel overall that blame the vain was a step down musically for dwight and he missed pete's playing and producing on that album (with the exception of blame the vain and last heart in the line, two of the finest songs hes ever written.) However this new album holds up exceptionally well and is a thousand times better then blame the vain. Overall this album has a strong 60s influence and IMO is not much like his early music at all. If you like his first three albums you may not like what you hear here. The only song reminiscent of that period is dim lights... However if you dig his later albums like Gone and A Long Way Home, I'm sure you will these tunes. Standout tracks for me include It's Never Alright, A Long Way To Go (reprise), and Missing Heart and 3 Pears. Please buy this album and support the artist so we don't have to wait seven hears for the next one!

Song by song.

1 Take Hold of my Hand - Nice start to the cd pretty typical Dwight.

2. Waterfall - Intersting lyrics... paints a nice picture mentally. A bit off the normal, won't be hearing this on the raido.

3. Dim Lights, Thick Smoke - Great honky tonk rocker! Love it! This should be on the radio!

4. Trying - nice ballad, defiantly radio friendly.

5. Nothing But Love - Very Beatle sounding into. Nice sound to this song, rockish country.

6. It's Never Alright - I really like this ballad! Very soulful.

7. A Heart Like Mine - Jingle Jangle country song. Nice 50's sounding Rockabilly song.

8. Long Way To Go - Great song.....just typical Dwight.

9. Missing Heart - Very nice ballad. Nice feel to this song. Like the guitar solo in its simplicity.

10. 3 Pears - I get it, very good lyrics. Nice title track.

11. Rock It All Away - WOW the bass groove to this one is awesome. Midtempo rocker which suits Dwight's voice perfectly. Great guitar work on this one to. The harmony spot on this one is really a nice touch to this. Easily my favorite song on the cd!

12. Long Way To Go (Reprise) - Ahhh.. A piano version of the song. This is great! Always loved acoustic song versions and this is Dwight and a piano. VERY Nice end to the cd.

I give Dwight a A+ on this one. Worth the wait after all the time between the last one. While a lot of it is too country or too rock to play on country radio it should be given a chance.

Dwight defiantly marches to the beat of a different drummer, but for the ones of us that march to that different drummer that is a great thing.
