Some reviewers have complained about the sound and the lyrics that Big and Rich are selling us. OPEN YOUR MINDS! This is NEW country, not your old fashioned Hank Williams/Willie Nelson brand of music. Not that old fashioned country music is bad. But times change and so does the music. Big and Rich have introduced a whole new sound to country music, a much overdue style.
As far as the lyrics being "empty and mindless", as one person wtote, they must not have listened to "Saved" or "Holy Water". Both these songs, among several others, have real heart and soul to them. The lyrics are very thoughtful and meaningful.
As for some of the other songs like "Rollin'","Kick My Ass" and "Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy", these are just plain fun to listen to and even dance, if your'e in the mood. As for the video for "....Cowboy", it's a mix of City Slickers meets Rocky Horror Picture Show meets the girls from "Addicted to Love" video meets Moulin Rouge. It's awesome and very creative, but most of all, it's FUN!!!
That's what the whole cd is, fun. The guys can really harmonize great together and in the song "Live This Life", sound almost like Simon and Garfunkel. There are so many different kinds of music and styles going on, it'd be hard not to find something you liked on this cd.
Like other reviewers, I, too, bought this for the "Save A Horse.." song, and wound up loving EVERY song on the cd.There's ballad, rock and rollers, a little funk/hip-hop/rap, and plain old country music.
These guys are enormously talented and you can tell they are having fun making their own style of music. If your'e a fan of good music, of any kind, I promise you won't be disappointed with this cd.
Big and Rich is just what country music needed, a real shot in the arm with a dose of NEW music.

"Brothers and sisters, we're here for one reason only...we present to you COUNTRY MUSIC WITHOUT PREJUDICE!"
And so begins one of the best, and certainly most daring, country albums ever recorded. "Horse of a Different Color" is not what you're used to hearing. Do I have to attempt to describe this album? Take John Mellencamp, add a dose of Skynyrd, some Kid Rock, a little Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, and a touch of Toby Keith's attitude. That doesn't cover it (I don't think you can describe this album in any way other than GREAT) but it'll do.
Big & Rich features "Big" Kenny and John Rich (former bassist/vocalist for Lonestar, before the band lost the belt-buckles). These two guys harmonize on every track--and it is oh such a heavenly sound.
Songs such as the engaging "Rollin" and the party anthem "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" (love that title) express the boys' music tastes, and why they aren't embarrassed to be rockin' cowboys in an age of traditionalism. And yet, few songs are countrier than the barroom brawlers "Big Time" and "Drinkin' 'Bout You." "Love Train" takes a look at the world's problems, from racial tentions to how the Bulls play without Jordan. "Kick My Ass" is a song for the underdogs (and the party hounds). "Six Foot Town" tells of a young man's angst to leave the town that's too small for him. "Live This Life" is a moving look at, well, living your life. "Holy Water" is a touching song about a woman who's trying to regain her innocence. The first single, "Wild West Show," is a bit cliched (but purely enjoyable) look at a broken relationship compared with the wild west.

I heard "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" at a friend's wedding reception earlier this year, and I was blown away. As soon as the song came on, the whole room went insane, singing and stomping along. I finally picked up the CD last week after getting into Gretchen Wilson's music and hearing about the Muzik Mafia. This is the best CD I've bought all year... and this is coming from someone who used to hate all "new" country music. This CD mixes practically every genre imaginable into country, and the result is a gorgeous, complex, interesting and sometimes hilarious CD. I hope these guys continue making music for a long, long time, "without prejudice!"

This album has got to be, by far, one of the best albums I have ever heard.

"Why they tryin' to complicate, the simple music that we make, ah, 'cause if it moves my soul, I'm goin' to keep on Rollin', Rollin'"

That lyric from the song Rollin' (The Ballad of Big & Rich), is one of my favorites. It's country, it's rock and roll, it's real, and it's amazing.

You get bar room tracks from "Kick My Ass", "Drinkin' 'Bout You", and "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)" to songs that hit home for some listeners, like "Holy Water." "Love Train" is a song about coming together and leaving our differences behind.

I could call these two lyrical geniuses, they have a way with words, which in turn makes for some great music.

I strongly recommend this CD for anyone who loves music. Big Kenny and John Rich are a couple of "crazy son-of-a-BAD WORDS"!!!
