A highly recommended CD listening.

I really want to like Shooter a lot, but he just seems to come up a little short lately with his albums.
S. O'Brien
I look forward to when Shooter releases new material.

Country singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings has a new self-produced CD release titled 'Family Man' : producing here for the first time, has family theme/thread throughout the album including in the tracks "The Real Me", "Southern Family Anthem" & "The Family Tree" and his new country music band The Triple Crown does jell very well. The album is well balanced with the ketchy melody & vocals in "The Long Road Ahead" (up-tempo solid track/gem/stand-out featuring Tom Morello & Eleanor Whitmore), "The Deed And The Dollar" (first single, great choice), "Summer Dream (Al's Song)" & "Daddy's Hands" (wonderful violin & this is my favourite track from this great CD), bluesy in "Manifesto No. 4" & "The Family Tree" and slow-tempo "The Black Dog" (great guitar-finger pick-ups) & "Born Again" (featuring Eleanor Whitmore). The production is solid & his band is on the roll and his song-writing superb (there is no weak song to talk of). Eleanor Whitmore provides great harmony vocals as well as playing harmony & fiddle in this great CD.

On overall, Shooter Jennings is on top of his game in this new family affair CD (song-writing, production & making the band jell well), titled 'Family Man' : a stunning performance & a well deserved 5 star rating. A highly recommended CD listening.

I look forward to when Shooter releases new material. He has continued his tradition of producing good outlaw country. I was pleased that some of the tracks in particular "The Real Me" has the potential to be a main stream country hit. It would be refreashing to see Shooter get some well deserved exposure not to mention providing an eye opening experience for those consumed with the commercial country scene.

When Shooter Jennings emegred on the scene back in 2005, he was pretty much the odd man out. When he released his debut "Put The 'O' Back In Country", he was doing Outlaw Country in a time where pop infused country became all the rage. He took things a step further on his follow-up- 2006's "Electric Rodeo", an album that was equal parts country and Southern soul. The following year, he released his third and final album for a major label "The Wolf". Despite having solid material and great production, neither was enough to get any recognition from the record company. So he decided to go the independent route for his next project. In 2010, he released the critically acclaimed "Black Ribbons"- a politically charged concept album that was equal parts Pink Floyd and Lynyrd Skynyrd. As great as the album was, the record label Rocket Science Ventures ran into promotion and funding trouble shortly after the album was released. Two years later, Shooter resurfaced with a new band as well as a new label eOne Music for his next studio effort "Family Man".

On this new album, two things are very noticeable. The first of which is the absence of producer Dave Cobb, who helmed Shooter's first four albums. The second of which is the glaring omission of the first single "Outlaw You"- which was cut from the album. This time around, Shooter takes the reins on the production front, and the results are pretty decent. Starting the album off is the song "The Real Me" in which Shooter proclaims to be a great father and husband while being seemingly non-threatening- that is, until he starts drinking. He gets assistance from Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello on the song "The Long Road Ahead".

I love when Shooter releases a new cd. I look forward to it every time. This album is back to country, while some of the others are not. There are a lot of great songs on this album. He's even better in concert. I have been a fan for years and will continue to be one for many years to come.

I have purchased several of Shooter's discs and most have that original, rebel sort of sound and lyric...this one was more traditional and enjoyable and showed signs of maturity. Good for you Shooter...not riding on Daddy's coattails.

Waylon must be smiling! This is far superior to the commercialized trash that supposed "Modern Country" is offering. Let's face it, most of today's country artists are probably city dwellers brought out of their element and told to sing "I drink my whiskey from a jug" and other quips that are as unfamiliar to them as a dirt road!

I like nearly all the songs from this CD. Great stuff that harkin's back to what country music, outlaw country music, used to be. Sings a good story too!
