A seriously great third album!!
on May 19, 2014
If listening to Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett and Blake Shelton everyday is your thing?! (Yep, it's mine!) Then this album is going to be in heavy rotation! If you listened and liked his first two releases you know what an awesome writer and musician he is. This album has a slightly more mature feel to it and is a bit contemplative. I truly love this album, it was worth every penny!(Although, Best Buy has it for 9.99.) Favorites to be played as loud as possible! If You Want A Bad Boy, Bottoms Up, Small Town Throwdown (features Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett), 17 Again, My Baby's Guns N' Roses. One Hell of an Amen will bring a tear to most people's eyes, an beautiful and touching song. Let It Ride is a wonderful ballad that isn't sappy but tugs gently at memories and strings of things past and present. I'm Gone is more emotional then Let It Ride in the sense that it plucks, tugs and strums those string with an uncanny knowledge. Granger Smith has a song Don't Listen to the Radio, I feel like it's talking about this song! My Faith In You is a gospel tinged song that I can see putting on repeat time and time again. That Was Us and Lights Of My Hometown are good songs that I just can't quite describe.
Overall, I love this new album! 5 stars and Congrats to Brantley Gilbert for masterfully segueing flawlessly from independent to major label without losing the sound that brought him such acclaim.
