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.

This is a great album release from Brantley Gilbert. Brantley has went into the studio and produced an album that has something for every kind of fan on it.

Some of my favorites are:
Lights of My Hometown- Brantley Gilbert and Brian Davis wrote this song years ago, and Brian Davis had previously recorded it. The Brian Davis version was great, and was one of my most played songs. The Brantley Gilbert version isn't simply a rehash of the Brian Davis version, Brantley's version is nearly double the length of Brian Davis' version. Both versions are great, and I love the unique touch Brantley has put on his version.
Bottoms Up- If you bought this album you undoubtedly have heard this song. A great modern country song
If You Want a Bad Boy
Small Town Throw-down- Song has a great beat to it, and with Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett how could it be anything but a great song

Does some of the album sound like modern country? Sure, but why would that be a bad thing? A lot of people are complaining about the evolution of country music to a modern style, well, that is the cycle of music. Music evolves over the years, and country music is currently evolving. Just As I Am has some modern sounding country on it, such as bottoms up. However, Just As I Am has much of the country rock sound that was on Brantley's Halfway to Heaven CD.

If you are a fan of Brantley Gilbert, modern country, or country rock, this album will not disappoint.

My wife and I were both fans of his first album and this one does not disappoint. There is a variety of higher energy songs and some of the slower, more heart-felt songs. For a second album, this one is great! My favorite songs on it are "17 Again", "Lights of My Hometown" and "Small Town Throwdown". If you liked Gilbert's first album, you will definitely like this album.

I have to start off by saying that I'm not a huge fan of Brantley's past albums; I like some songs but I could never listen to the entire album and enjoy it. With that said, I can definitely listen to "Just As I Am' all the way through. I love the rock n roll sound that is in every single song along with the country elements as well. There's a great variety of up tempo and slow tracks, with "My Baby's Guns n Roses" and "I'm Gone" being my favorite. "One Hell of an Amen" is the most emotional song on the album and it is a truly beautiful song and has a beautiful sentiment. The grit in his voice is evident in every song, but it never gets old. I love how Brantley mixes country into his mostly rock n roll sound; no country artist today does that as well as he does. Overall, it's artists like Brantley Gilbert that make Georgia country some of the absolute best country music today.

Just As I Am:

Brantley Gilbert did an amazing job on this album! This is a country album but Brantley Gilbert blurs the lines of country and rock together. It really is a track that you can simply put on shuffle and listen to the entire thing. Here I think are some of the best ones:

1. Lights of My Hometown
2. Let It Ride
3. That Was Us
4. I'm Gone
5. My Faith In You

Brantley Gilbert is a very respectable artist since he wrote (or at least co-wrote) all of the songs in this album. There are so many good songs on here that make you reminisce about the past and good times. A definite 5 stars and a must buy!

If you like the rockin' kick the door down songs of the last album don't expect as many on this one, unfortunately he softened it up a bit on most tracks, but not all. I am not a big country guy per say but loved half the tracks on the old one because they rocked. This one got more of those slower sad boy lovey ballads that I often hit the skip button on. Maybe he'll read this this put out something grittier and that sounds like he crossed Godsmack with modern country like some tracks on the last album.

I listen to music mainly during a workout. Not sure about others but I love selecting an album and listening from beginning to end without having to skip any tracks; this definitely fits that mold. Brantley and his producers have selected some great songs and put a nice Brantley twist to them all. It's a fantastic CD and believe it's a must have for any country music fan.

Great job Brantley; I say this is your best CD to date!!

I am not usually moved to write reviews but I have not heard anything like this before and I am so impressed with BGs style and talent. If you like country rock it really doesn't get any better than this. If I don't listen to this on a daily basis I go into withdrawal. Oh and did I mention how sexy and hot he is.......this just creates the whole package and expect that he will be more popular than Blake or Luke!!!!!!

I bought this album because I was looking to add a few artist to my country mix and the songs "Bottoms Up" was included in this album and that's a top country song for me. I'm not a huge country person, but I listen to it when I'm in the mood. This album didn't disappoint when it came to needing a country fix. Definitely worth a buy if your a fan of Brantley Gilbert's music.
