Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Drinkin' Songs & Other Logic is a straight, no chaser collection of honky-tonk songs from Clint Black. Hard twangin' accompanies hard drinkin' from the opening shot of the theme-setting title track through the last call of "Longnecks & Rednecks." Between rounds, Black adds some cowboy philosophizing ("Code of the West"), a plea for a return to purer country or better farmland ("Too Much Rock"), and a glimmer of spirituality ("Back Home in Heaven"). With Black producing and writing (or at least collaborating on) all of the material, the results aren't quite as consistent as they were in his hitmaking heyday. He suffers a novelty low with "Undercover Cowboy," about a seductive schemer who "only wants to know how to get under the cover with you," yet channels the dance-floor inspiration of Bob Wills with the twin fiddles of "Heartaches" and the breezy swing of "I Don't Wanna Tell You." Wherever the music takes him, there's a whole lot of Texas in these tracks. --Don McLeese

Product Description

The first thing that listeners will notice about Drinkin' Songs & Other Logic, Clint's tenth studio album, is that the songwriting marks a stylistic return for Clint to his edgiest and most successful work. Using his long standing touring band in the studio for the first time in several albums also adds to the album's intensity. Drinkin' Songs & Other Logic is already being hailed by critics as Clint's finest worik since his classic 1989 debut, Killin' Time. Equity. 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black's Irresistable "Logic" October 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: A Big One, Back Home in Heaven, Rainbow in the Rain

Clint Black has return to his mother milk of what nurtured him into fame way back in the early 90s: swinging Texas honky tonk stompers interjected with those traditional sensitive tear-jerking ballads. Gone are those delusory attempts to cross over to the pop market (a la the extremely misfired "Money or Love" and the shoddily pablum "Easy for you to Say"). As the title suggests, Black has decided to tip his Stetson to the venerable tradition of country drinkin' numbers. This does not mean that this CD is entirely an inebriant to the sonically dipsomania. Rather, only 4 of these tracks (the title cut, "A Big One," "Thinkin' of You" and "Longnecks and Rednecks") contain explicitly alcohol-related themes, with the rest dealing with thoughtful ruminations of love lost, missed opportunities, cherished friendships and a couple even dealing with death. Thanks to Black and his longtime band mate Hayden Nicholas who co-penned most of these 12 cuts, these songs reverberate back to Black's "Killing Times" days where the music is unadulterated country nuanced with a roiling mix of honesty, urgency and credibility.

A listen to the scintillating lead single "Rainbow in the Rain" is enough to convince that one is listening to greatness. Giving the well-worn theme of despair in the throes of a breakup a makeover, Black dives into the emotional depths to create one of his most compelling uptempos in his vast catalogue. Co-written by Nicholas at the time of his mother's death, the spiritually searching "Back Home in Heaven" is given a cherubic boast with the angelic backings of label mate Little Big Town.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best from Clint in a long while May 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album from Clint Black in a quite a while, although it is not up to the standard of his first albums. It does represent a return to the traditional country music that first brought him into prominance, although there are traces of the Adult Contemporary focus of recent years.

The album opens with the title track, an uptempo song that pays homage to country's past. "Heartaches," the second track, is a nice honky tonk song. After that comes "Code of the West", a rather cliche-ridden number that fails to interest.

These first three songs set the pattern for the CD, two pretty good songs for every one mediocre or indifferent song. I'm not sure which is my favorite track, perhaps the very western swing influenced "I Don't Want To Tell You" with it's great fiddle backing, but clearly "Undercover Cowboy" is the biggest stinker of the set - a song about a cowboy Don Juan whose sole mission is to get "under the covers" with "undercover" cowgirls. Perhaps I am being generous giving this four stars, but the best tracks are very good indeed and the worst tracks (except "Undercover Cowboy") are at least listenable

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC CLINT BLACK FOR CLASSIC COUNTRY FANS February 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Interesting, the shifts taking place in Country Music these days. You have the newcomers who are, in many cases, doing their damnedest to shift the genre away from real Country music toward a sort of weird, hybrid animal that pulls a lot of new listeners into the pseudo-Country herd.

And as the music shifts, many expect the mainstays of the genre, the Straits, Chesneys, Jacksons and, in keeping with this review, the Clint Blacks, to follow suit. They complain that Black's newest offering, DRINKIN' SONGS & OTHER LOGIC, is the "same old Black" and seem to want him to take on the perverse sounds of the Country-nouveau in order to please them. I thought it was the other way around. I thought fans like me followed artists like Clint Black because his music struck a chord. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for artists who keep changing their sound in order to meet the demands of an audience.

Let's make this simple. If you don't want classic Country Western music, as only Clint Black can deliver it and, mind you, has delivered it over his entire stellar career, then jump on the bandwagon of any of the new monstrosities currently commanding Country Music acts and stages all over creation. But, if you want to hear Country sung as it should be, this terrific album, as well as any other of Black's previous releases, should do the trick. It's every bit as fresh, every bit as musically excellent, every bit as Country as when Black stepped on stage for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clint returns to his original style October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am enjoying this CD. It's much closer to his original style, which is what drew me to Clint Black in the first place.
