Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On "Some Things Never Change," the opening track of Chris LeDoux's first album since battling back from serious illness and a liver transplant, even his buddy and duet partner Garth Brooks sounds looser and less forced than on any of his own records. Still the rodeo veteran, LeDoux relaxes listeners while retaining all of the power and integrity that's marked his music from the jump (more than 23 years ago!). "Millionaire," a celebration of lasting love, the joyous "Don't It Make You Want to Dance," and the rodeo humor of "Cowboy Up" emphasize straightforwardness over predictability. "Scatter the Ashes" transcends its rodeo theme with a message for any world-weary soul ready to move on. And how many major-label artists today sing of the pure joy of farm life as he does on "Simple as Dirt"? Never once do he or his producers lower themselves to worry about pleasing radio's demographic-obsessed, tin-eared demons. In a perfect world, LeDoux would be one of those who set country's gold standard. --Rich Kienzle

Well, after a couple CDs of re-done stuff, Chris LeDoux has come out with some great new music. (Don't get me wrong, I liked the updates on "Cowboy".) Initially I was a little dismayed that Chris didn't write most of the tunes, but hey, does it really matter? Nope. He does such a great job with his renditions that the writer part just doesn't matter. About half of the tunes clicked at first listen, and the rest didn't take much longer. Anyone who appreciates LeDoux or just good western music would do well to check out this collection. The first song, "Some Things Never Change", a collaboration with Garth Brooks, hooks you from the start. One of my favorites is "Scatter the Ashes" about a rodeo cowboy facing the end of his active career. Yes, the songs in general are a slower pace compared to most of his previous stuff. But one can feel a maturity that perhaps has grown from his experiences of the last couple of years. His voice also has a more "mature" sound to it, but it's still strong, and pure Chris. As another reviewer suggested, this CD may not get much air play unfortunately, but it's high quality all the way. Buy this CD, and you won't be sorry for sure. Chris LeDoux is still the genuine article.

LeDoux's music is filled with the mature sense of self that's missing from the work of fresh-faced Nashville strivers. It's a perspective honed from a life of experience, and left unperturbed by the necessities of modern chart stardom. On this latest release, LeDoux's introspective sensibility has been magnified by a health crisis and subsequent successful liver transplant. The resulting mood reflects a deepened sense of contentment with family, friends, work and play.
From the opening Garth Brooks duet, "Some Things Never Change," to the closing remake of the rodeo-themed "Bareback Jack," LeDoux contemplates the simple things that make up one's life; romance ("Millionaire" "What I'm Up Against"), hard work ("Cowboy Up" "Simple as Dirt"), and music making ("Don't it Make You Want to Dance") provide a few of his daily joys. Even David Lee Murphy's funereal "Scatter the Ashes" finds peace in the final departure from a well-lived life.
LeDoux's happiness and comfort is infectious, enough so to credit the backing singers on one track as "everybody in the studio." His tone may be less rowdy than on earlier albums (though the western swing of "I Don't Want to Mention Any Names" has a sly bounce), but his words are no less powerful. Like a favorite pair of Wrangler's, LeDoux's music gains character each time he rides out of the chute.

This is not a regular Chris LeDoux CD. Instead of his typical "Rodeo Rock 'n Roll," LeDoux slows this albumn down. A listener can hear how relaxed LeDoux is. Track one, Some Things Never Change, is an incredible song that anybody who has ever spent years fixing fence or chasing cows would appreciate. Don't it Make You Want to Dance has a warm, friendly feeling. Cowboy Up sounds a lot like his really old stuff (like Photo Finish, Re-Ride, and National Finals Rodeo). He also has a new version of Bareback Jack. This CD is really, really good, and proves once again that LeDoux doens't make his music for the popular culture, but makes it because it is good, original country music.

"Some things never change"? Well a little bit with this new CD as far as you will find only two songs referring to rodeos: The joyous "Cowboy Up", written by the talented cowgirl Joni Harms, one of my favorites on this CD, and "Bareback Jack".
What changes is that Chris, though still haunted by freedom and wide spaces, emphasises his SO GOOD sentimental, romantic side that I personnaly prefer with ""Don't make it you want to dance" and "What I'm up against". The whole album is sure relaxing but not boring! A bit of western swing with " I don't want to mention no names" will convince you. There's still a true country music, DON'T MISS IT! Domi

Chirs Ledoux does not get the regention he deserves and his music is never played on the radio so the only way your going to hear this cd excepct maybe Some things never change with Garth Brooks is buy the cd. It is one great cd and if you have followed any recent music by chirs you will love this. Simple as Dirt, Some Things never change,dont it make you want to dance,and Bareback Jack are all great, But Scatter the ashes is the best song on here. Please support chirs and buy this cd I think it will be one you will liste to many times.

I love every song on this CD. "After the Storm" combines love songs with rodeo songs. There aren't any crying in your beer songs on this CD. It is great to have a new Chris LeDoux CD to add to my collection.

While "After the Storm" has a more reflective and "softer" feel to it than other LeDoux albums, it's definately one of the better ones. If you liked the unrehearsed sound of the "Live" and "One Road Man" CDs, you won't be disappointed. Most of the songs have the same tone as "Tougher than the Rest," a song that was on the 20 greatest hits album and is part of the live show. Tracks like "Don't it Make You Want to Dance," and "Simple as Dirt" balance things out. If there is any filler, I can't find it; all eleven tracks are equally as good. "After the Storm" also includes a new duet with Garth Brooks, and a studio recording of "Bareback Jack." This is one CD actually worth what you pay for it.
