Product Description

2004 album by the country music traditionalist from Texas features 12 tracks. EMG.

Amazon.com

Though his masterful 1989 debut, Killin' Time, had once placed him neck and neck with Garth Brooks in the running for Nashville's most important New Traditionalist, Clint Black never made music that sounded as muscular or inspired. At times--his 1990 follow-up, Put Yourself in My Shoes, for instance--you could hear his wheels turn, as if he were trying too hard to do something that once came easy. However, on Spend My Time, his first album in nearly four years and the debut release for Equity (where Black is a partner), the stylish Texan takes full responsibility for everything--writing every tune, producing the disc, and letting his musicians stretch out in free-range solos. On the whole, he's more reflective than usual, taking stock of the fact that he's no longer a young gunslinger ("Spend My Time") and admitting that he's still smarting about his tumble from grace ("We All Fall Down"). Black still occasionally comes up with a bumbling, empty lyric ("All I need is everything I want"), something that has long marred his work. But he also conjures some of the most beautiful and wistful love songs of his career. If his days as a Number One hit maker are over, in the soaring ballads "My Imagination" and "Just Like You and Me" he proves he's only now really exploring his limits as an artist. --Alanna Nash

As an aficionado of the great Clint Black I had begun to wonder where he had gotten to. Four years since his last album. What was that all about. Retired? Enjoying the good life? Raising horses? What?
I continued to listen to others of my Clint Black favorites like PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES, THE HARD WAY, D'LECTRIFIED and NO TIME TO KILL, each time wondering where the heck Black was and all the while hoping that he would get back in the studio and give us something new.
Well the wait is over and, given the magnificent presentations and tone poetry of his new album, SPEND MY TIME, it was well worth it. In fact this album transcends everything that has defined Black's abilities in the past and introduces us to a talent that seems to be, if it's possible, absolutely perfected. The album includes such soon-to-be hits as the title track, SPEND MY TIME, A MIND TO and two ballads, MY IMAGINATION and JUST LIKE YOU AND ME, that are about as beautiful and spellbinding as any that I have ever heard before.
Welcome back Mr. Black! Let's hope there's a lot more from where SPEND MY TIME apparently came from.

I was kind of timid at first in getting this cd. I was leaning toward the new Kenny Chesney cd, and something told me to get the new Clint Black cd. I made the right choice, because this cd really keeps to country without all of the pop music being put into country through these years. This album has something for everyone. "Spend My Time" is a song Clint Black put a bunch of heart into. Nearly everyone can relate to the song. Every track is good music making, and I am glad Clint Black is keeping the country spirt alive with his music. God Bless You Clint, and keep making wonderful music. I will keep listening.

I have to say that after 4 years, Clint Black sounds like he is refreshed as he has written and produced some of the best material I have heard from him as of late. There's not a bad track on this disc and each can stand on its own merit. I'm glad to see that he's back and hopefully this will put him back and keep him on the charts where he belongs.

It seems like forever since we heard anything from Clint Black, was it worth the wait? Boy was it! This is one of the best CD's we've gotten from him. Spend My Time is great, the upbeat tune of "The Boogie Man" is awesome, I can't recommend this CD enough to country music fans.

I haven't been a fan of Clint Black's for long but I love this CD. Of course, there's his single "Spend My Time" but I also love "My Imagination" and "Just Like You and Me". The CD has a good mix of ballands and up tempo songs. It's different than other country and it's refreshing. If you like his other CD's or even just the one single, I would recommend this CD. It's excellent!

Black's first album in four years finds his artistic reach expanding. In addition to having penned the album's dozen tracks, Black served as producer for his hand-picked band and recorded for his own EMG imprint. With aesthetic and commercial controls both in-hand, Black has turned out a surprisingly sophisticated collection of ballads and funk-inflected mid-tempo numbers.
Entering his forties with a wife and child, Black contemplates the changing priorities of middle-age ("Spend My Time") as well as his own human frailties ("We All Fall Down"). The latter sports a soulful mix of organ, piano harmonica, banjo and John Robinson's terrific staccato second-line drumming; the extended instrumental coda is especially fine. Robinson's drumming returns to drive the paranoid dot-com futurism of "Haywire," and Black maintains a blusey mid-tempo punch with "Everything I Need" and "The Boogie Man." The album's ballads are a more mixed lot. A few make original, personal turns, like the introspective title track and the theatrical "A Lover's Clown." Others slip into Nashville-bland melodies and lyrics.
It's a treat to hear Black integrating jazz, blues and funk flavors so effortlessly into his mid-tempo songs, and to discover how richly his voice fits a variety of moods and tones. His criticism of major label conventions and his cash on the barrelhead are brave, confident moves; whether or not he finds his way back to the charts, there's clearly a rich artistic future ahead.
3-3/4 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

I may be off, but it seems like Clint Black challenges himself to overcome the natural apathy an artist can take when they've proven themselves, their style has gone out, and the creative well has run dry. After a long stretch of time off, he produced "Nothing But the Tail Lights" - in my opinion, his best piece of musical work in his career - along with one of the best love songs of his career "Something That We Do". Clint has proven again that taking 4 years off can work if the songs are right.
Don't be fooled by the weak new material on Greatest Hits 2 or "D'lectrified" - "Spend My Time" is Clint's best work since "Tail lights". I honestly get the feeling he put experimental music and fillers on those projects and saved his best for this project.
This time, it appears, he challenges himself vocally and lyrically. The reflective title track is one of Clint's pieces of work in years, while "My Imagination" and "Just Like You and Me" are solid ballads, and "A Mind To" and "A Lover's Clown" are some of the best written pieces he's ever penned. The project is solid track for track.
Clint Black is a true artist in every sense of the word. Got to hand it to the man - to write, sing, and produce great music is a rare rare commodity in music of any genre, especially Nashville. Hopefully newer artists will take learn from a man who has been able to stretch a career of great work over 3 decades.
