Montgomery Gentry scores yet again with this awesome third album. "My Town" is what the boys are all about, and what YOU should be about--great country music.
You've all heard the title track, but check out the cool piano intro. "Scarecrow" has bluegrass edge--it's not, though, just to let you know--with some smooth mandolin playing. "Bad For Good" combines both of the guys on vocals--as do a couple other songs--and could quite possibly be the new Montgomery Gentry anthem. "Speed" is a mournful tune written by Nashville great Jeffrey Steele, about needing something fast to get over a broken heart. "Hell Yeah"--refered to in the review title, in case you missed the similarity--asks us what music means in our lives, whether it's Johnny Cash or Bruce Springsteen. "Free Fall" deals with the depression after a break-up, and "Lie Before You Leave" is a man's plea to his soon-to-be ex. "For The Money", probably the best track on the album--in my opinion--combines an important message--live life to be alive, not to make money--with some excellent harmonies.
Both Eddie Montgomery and Troy (T-Roy) Gentry are great singers, and they deliver their country style raw and un-abashedly. They make no appologies for their music, because they are country, and that is what they sing. "My Town" expresses this feeling--if the title track of their last album, "Carry On", did not--and you get what you want with this album. Montgomery Gentry rides again. Hop aboard.
