Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As co-host of CMT's Nashville Star, Troy Coleman might have been expected to stick to the amiable hick-hop novelty of his 2005 debut, Loco Motive. Instead, his sophomore effort rocks harder than expected--think heavy-metal guitars--and emphasizes the "black" of the title. While hammy barnyard tunes ("Hick Chick" and a dance mix of "I Play Chicken with the Train") raise their feathered heads, Cowboy brings along Angela Hacker, J. Money, and M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold to balance the MuzikMafia shtick. "The Black Buffalo comin' out the box," he warns in "How Can You Hate Me?," a song that seethes with anger: "Some of y'all sayin' Troy ain't nothing but a Sambo." No more, big guy. No more. --Alanna Nash

Product Description

Cowboy Troy rode in on a horse of a different color thanks to Big & Rich and their Nashville-based genrebusting Muzik Mafia. Creating a new cultural phenomenon and genre all his own hick-hop black Country rapper Cowboy Troy made his major-label debut in 2005 with Loco Motive, which hit #2 Country. Now, with his follow-up album, Cowboy Troy is Black In The Saddle again.

I am actually SHOCKED how much I love this record!!!! Most will probably tell me I should be ashamed of myself, but in reality, THIS is the record that Big & Rich should have released instead of the enjoyable but something's missing "Between Raising Hell & Amazing Grace"...it's much better, catchier and more exciting, edgier throughout.

If anything, it's like a much better, non-Republican, Kid Rock. Troy doesn't sound like he's trying too hard here, the songs are better-written, they're much more cohesive, and there's no sense of novelty like "Loco Motive" had. The blend of hard rock, old school hiphop, alt-country, and dance rhythms works really well all over "Black In The Saddle", a really seamless blend...Troy and John Rich finally figured it out...it's equal to Big & Rich's "Horse Of A Different Colour", Troy's version of it...and this album proves that John Rich (he goes under the pseudonym "J.Money" here) is capable of matching it and maybe even surpassing it...BRHAAG is not it..."Black In The Saddle" is equal to that vision.

I love the references to rock bands like Guns & Roses and mosh pits, goood times and "Hick Chicks, Dixie Divas and you Southern Belles"...and the "Barn Dance Remix" of "I Play Chicken With The Train" is better than the original, the novelty aspect gone, replaced by a cohesive vision of rock, dance, hiphop and country.

I like I like...and most mainstream country people would probably hate this like poison. I wonder who this should be aimed towards??? The dance clubs??? The modern rock crowd??? Rappers, maybe, but they're too closed-minded. Maybe those who dug Run DMC, Beastie Boys, old school rap, Ice-T collaborating with Body Count???

I don't know, but it doesn't matter, it's a great record that will go underappreciated and unnoticed...too bad really...Cowboy TRoy's really good after all...even his inbetween single "Hook Em Horns" was great too...

Again thought to check out some more of Cowboy Troy. And this is alright, I like some of the songs on the cd. As with all rap cd, just certain songs. You might like this one as well.

This is what hick hop is all about. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. This is my favourite Cowboy Troy album, and has even managed to convert a few people who had never heard of hick hop, to like it.

I tried so hard to like this album. I really tried. I love "urban country" or "hick hop" or country rap, however you want to call it. So I wanted to like this major-label artist. This artist who is one of the rare African-American artists in country music. I tried... But after hating that first album of his, I decided I'd give this one a chance. One last chance. UGH! I'm sure he's a nice guy and I'd love to meet him in person, but I can't subject myself to this horrible music anymore. This guy is wildly untalented and apparently nothing more than a novelty act. His country themes seem forced and his delivery is really clumsy.

If you're looking for country rap, check out Colt Ford, The LACs, Mikel Knight and even Nappy Roots. But don't do this. I will not be giving CT anymore chances.

Back off, and put your middle finger down away from him!!! ALL music genres go in SOME directions, and country is moving forward. To rock-hard guitar licks and, now, rap (or "Hick-Hop", as Cowboy Troy calls it). And just because it doesn't sound like country doesn't mean it can't be, either. True, it may not be actual rap, but it's sort of like it, even if it doesn't sound like it.

One reviewer said that there's only one black man in country, and that's as stupid as saying there's only one white man in rap, give or take a few rappers.

I'm just surprised some people can live with certain cross-genres, but not this one. And that's oh-so too bad, because Cowboy Troy is mixing two or three different genres and blending all of it together to make his own style of music so perfectly. If Korn can blend metal with techno, then Troy can blend country with rap. If Incubus can blend funk with metal in their early work... you get the idea.

What authority do I have to tell this to you? We all have a right to express ourselves and our loves and hates, but not like this. Even bad critic reviews (well, most reviews) are more polite than these customer reviews.

I know I have no right to say these things, but I have a right to opinion too, be it either positive or negative. (Please forgive me on the new Bon Jovi album, though.)

There's just one choice: Listen to it, or don't. That simple. Just don't go overboard with the flak reviews, even though I'm doing the same with all your reviews.

It's not like I'm trying to tell reviewers what to say, but all this flak is ridiculous.

The case was broken upon delivery. The CD was fine. I would have returned but my son had opened it prior to me seeing it was broken.
