2.0 out of 5 stars Not My Kinda Party October 20, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Jason Aldean is getting used to the view from the top. "My Kinda Party" spawned five Top Ten singles and is in its 102nd week on the Billboard charts. Driven by rocking country coupled with rap and a power ballad, that album seemed to rise to the top of the charts organically, With his fifth release, "Night Train," he seems to be taking dead aim at the summit.
Aldean is at his best as a studly outlaw, but the majority of the material on "Night Train" is clichéd and watered down. Song themes are universally relatable and very basic, ranging from the virtues of hard work to the role of females in keeping men on track.
Noticeably lacking is the use of traditional country instrumentation, although there is some nice heavy guitar work on Take A Little Ride and impressive wah wah pedal on Staring at the Sun.
The infectious rap of Dirt Road Anthem is resurrected on 1994. Aldean was worried that the song might alienate his younger fan base because of its Joe Diffie references. He said, "There may be some younger fans that have to do some research and figure out who Joe Diffie is.
The demographic in question will likely not have a problem recognizing the virtual clone of Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive in the form of Wheels Rollin' here. Aldean takes a desperately needed chance on the album's highlight, Black Tears, a stripper ballad where drugs and mama's disapproval are openly referenced. The album's simple themes attempt to keep it country, but it is a far cry from the excellence of the more traditional sound of "My Kinda Party."

After 4 MEDIOCRE albums Aldean finally has a complete work. That's what I hear and its obvious-I have never been a big fan of Aldean's style or material so I listened to this album not expecting much. Oh was I wrong. One listen through this album and I was blown away and after 50 listens, nothing has changed. I'm HIGHLY selective and critical of most musicians-you need to do something special to impress me and Aldean as done that with this record. I'd read critics reviews of Aldean's prior albums and they would say things like "the new gold standard of doing albums without filler" and would listen to said albums and go "really?...o-kay".

This album is musically brilliant: the hooks, the production and mixing, the unapologetic nods to classic rock and southern rock (and yes even some hip hop) are refreshing-whether people like it or not THIS is the future of country music. If country wants to be successful and not fade into obscurity in the larger music scene as had happened before that Garth guy and his contemporaries gave the genre new life, this is where it needs to head. This album is really long and there isn't really one bad track on it...and I'd rather have 15 really good to very very good tracks than 2 outstanding tracks and 10 okay tracks-but that's just me. I read one article that said they went through 5,000 songs to get to these 15 and it shows.

I simply do not get what others are hearing when they write 3 star reviews much less 2 and 1 star reviews. Maybe in the age of total **** Apple earbuds and "mastered for iTunes" compression people can't experience truly great production and musicianship?

I liked the album but in my opinion not his best. I prefer the last one much more. I do like the song with Eric Church and Luke Bryan the "Only way I know".

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a solid bit of rockin' country October 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is just a solid disc all the way through. Aldean and his band know what works, and deliver another winning batch of modern country tunes with plenty of electric guitar in the mix. The old saying "there's nothing new under the sun" certainly applies to today's country music, but you have to remember, the core audience isn't generally interested in hearing artists break new ground. They (that is, we) want music we can sing along to in the car, or just relax with a cold drink and forget the worries of the day. And in this respect, NIGHT TRAIN is every bit as good an album as Jason's previous four.

Standouts include the romantic title track (probably my favorite at the moment), the "Turn the Page" homage "Wheels Rolin'," and David Lee Murphy's "Walkin' Away"--surely a future hit from a guy who knows how to make 'em. "1994" is getting some attention as a tribute to Joe Diffie, but it comes across just a tad silly in my opinion. But really, this is one of those albums where I never really feel the need to hit the SKIP button.

Basically, if you liked Jason's previous albums, I think you'll find NIGHT TRAIN a real pleasure.
