Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"Lord, honey, you're a ghost," Minnie Pearl allegedly told Hank Williams III after their first meeting. It's a natural reaction to the skinny singer with the sunken cheekbones and, especially, the pinched nasal vocal--so reminiscent of his famous grandfather's catch-and-moan delivery. Hank III's debut, Risin' Outlaw, made that clear, but now his follow-up carves it on the wall, vocally, melodically, and lyrically. While the third-generation rebel strives mightily to find his own sound by wedding the spooky, old-style country blues and dark themes of his grandfather (Hank Sr.) to the Southern rock and boogie of his dad (Hank Jr.), at times he's guilty of trying too hard to buck Nashville ("Trashville") and re-create the misery of the Williams family tradition. Song after song packs danger and despair between the lines, in drinking to kill the pain, in wallowing in depression, in walking the "low road" of life. That said, III knows how to conjure a gutbucket rhythm ("7 Months and 39 Days") as well as a mournful tearjerker ("5 Shots of Whiskey"), and his touring band keeps things spare, raw, and honkin'. Not everything comes together, but there's no doubting this is a fascinating snapshot of a magical performer struggling to make his own legend. --Alanna Nash

5.0 out of 5 stars Trad Country Will Never Die!! February 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I will keep this short and sweet. If you want your country music like it was in the good old days, then buy this album. Hank III channels his grandfather. Probably the finest country album I have heard in ages. I'll say it again, BUY THIS ALBUM!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the few living saviors of Country Music January 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
How anyone who listens to current country music radio can call themselves a fan of country music is beyond me. This is the real thing and you will never hear this on mainstream radio. Why? Because it's too country for country radio which pretty much is just crappy light rock with fiddles and steel guitars these days. Hank III is the reason I don't discredit the genre altogether. This CD is awesome, that's all you need to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars REAL COUNTRY January 30, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought HANK 3'S debut album in 1999 when it first came out and for 3 long, loooong years I had to wait for his sophomore effort "LOVESICK BROKE & DRIFTIN... 3 WORDS: WORTH THE WAIT! I knew after the first song that HANK III had hit the nail on the head. THERE IS NOT ONE DUD ON THIS ALBUM. EVERY TRACK DELIVERS. While country radio is playing bubble gum, watered down, country pop artists, HANK WILLIAMS III is bringing country that's REAL AND RAW AND DOESN'T CARE WHOSE FEET IT STEPS ON. If you love Hank SR., I will give you a money-back guarantee that you will love his grandson just the same. IF YOU ARE NOT A HANK SR. FAN... SEEK THERAPY. If you do buy this album, LISTEN FOR THE HIDDEN TRACK AT THE END OF THE ALBUM. Also listen for track 4: LOVIN' & HUGGIN'; If that song doesn't make your feet itch, well, seek therapy. NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS ALBUM COMES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FROM THIS "REAL" COUNTRY FAN!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Honky Tonk Hank October 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I like country music. Let me rephrase that. I like REAL country music. Forget the Shania Twains and Rascal Flatts out there. I don't like country watered down with pop influences. I like the hard core honky tonk old school country music. That's Hank III, and he carries on a fine tradition started a long time ago by his grandfather.
A bit of a departure from his first CD (which was good in it's own right), Hank III pens all but one tune on this CD, and his talent truly shows. Not only that, he has the absolutely amazing sounds of Mr. Kayton Roberts on steel guitar, a man who has played with many country music legends. I think he's playing for a future legend on this album.
You probably won't hear Hank III on mainstream country music radio, but if you want to hear the real deal, pick up this CD. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Hopefully he is the herald of what 21st century country holds in store for us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin' good time November 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hank III does sound like his famous grandfather, but at the same time he has a very unique delivery and knows how to tell a story in a song. The songs on this CD range from mellow, old-timey numbers like the title track, "Atlantic City", "One Horse Town" and "5 Shots of Whiskey" to the rollicking good time "Nighttime Ramblin' Man" (which has some incredible instrumental work!). My favorite songs are "Cecil Brown" with its great bass, the angst-filled "Walkin' With Sorrow" and "Trashville" is also a standout as a f-you kind of song. Hank III does it his way and can never be accused of hiding behind his name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank III makes his statement! January 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The perfect antitode to all the soulless pop country saturating the market right now, with his new release Shelton Hank Williams is bringing country music back to its former glory. If youre not a country music fan to begin with you may not be converted but if youve given up on country music due to it going downhill for the past 10-15 years, pick up this CD and have your faith in country music restored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school Country gets new classmate July 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
So, ...I'm going to see Hank Williams III live on a Wednesday night in March of 2002. I received a promotional copy of this, then newly released CD, and got through about the first 2 tracks on the way to the show. I remember thinking that this would be a fun, learning experience for me since I don't get exposed to too much Country too often. Listening to the first 2 tracks, I knew I would be seeing a traditional Country show. It had a sound from the "good old days," when Country music didn't "rock." This wasn't Garth Brooks style stuff, I was thinking. This is more along the lines of Hank Williams, Sr., or George Jones. Classic style Country. Well, I was right...kind of.

Hank III covers a lot of bases here; he also covers the low key Bruce Springsteen tune "Atlantic City." You get a little bit of everything with this one.
He kicks off the lp with a traditional "foot tapper." "7 Months, 39 Days" is a rollicking barn burner that makes this set flow wonderfully right from the start. As the record rolls on, you get a lot of traditional cryin' and beggin' going on. All of it done extremely well. There's got to be something heretic with musicianship. This young gun comes from a bloodline much like Lisa Marie Presley is the offspring of one of Rock And Roll's inventors. This guy is kin to 2 of Country's biggest and brightest stars; and it shows. A musician of Hank III's age, doing the old traditional styles of Country, is unheard of these days. He is definitely old school, and he had a helluva teacher!
With songs such as "Trashville," in which he slams the up & coming Country "rockers," he sounds his most conformative, ironically. This tune has a more modern style to it. It rocks.
