"I really see this album as a game-changer for us," Eric Church says of The Outsiders, his fourth album and the follow-up to his platinum breakthrough Chief. "I want people to understand that we're here and that we will be reckoned with."

Although Church has already built a reputation as a restless creative force while blazing an unconventional path to country ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Church Store

If you like regular old run-of-the-mill cookie-cutter pop-country - please do not buy this album and give it a negative review. This is not regular country music. It's all kinds of music wrapped into one album. Of the 12 songs, 9 of them are excellent. The rest are still better than anyone else's album "filler" in the industry. Some of the songs do take a couple listens to really hear what it's about. For example, I was NOT a fan of Creepin on Chief. But after 3 or 4 trips through I was grooving on it. There are a few of those here too. I am a die hard Church choir member. I've loved just about everything he's ever done. THIS album is better than country. It's above any one single genre. It's a variety pack. It has everything from traditional country to bluegrass, to southern rock, to 60's rock, to pop, to funk to psychedelic rock. Some songs have multiple genres within the same song. And he rocks it. None of them are out of place. I don't think this album will ever get old because of the variety he employs.

In this album I hear lots of different musical influences. Allman Brothers, Black Sabbath, John Mellencamp, Michael Jackson, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffet, Waylon, Hank Jr, Garth...... That's a lot of great sounds.

Again, I caution you - do not buy this if you are looking for a contemporary/pop-country cookie cutter sound. That's not what you'll get. You will get rocking songs that you will become emotionally attached to because they relate to your life. And I know I don't even need to mention that these are HIS songs. NOT some song that he bought from a writer that means nothing to him to sing. You can feel his connection to the song and that makes me like it just a little more.

The best TRUE ARTIST in all of music right now is Eric Church. Buy this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've Decided It's Partly Satirical February 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD
The Outsiders is Eric Church's weakest album. There, I said it. It's not Chief. It's not Carolina. It most certainly isn't Sinners Like Me. Eric Church is Nashville's top artist right now, and that's not saying much, but he's so far ahead of the game that the sheer quality of his music is astounding. When I first heard the title track to this album, I was absolutely terrified about how far he would be "pushing the envelope." They say artistic freedom is a great thing to have, but there's no denying that artists can try to do too much, sometimes. That is the case with The Outsiders, as an album. It's essentially 12 songs worth of trying to fit square pegs in round holes. There are too many influences and genres flying around--just enough to make the album lack any hint of cohesiveness.

Here's the bright side--if what I've concluded is indeed true, that lack of cohesion, that, for lack of a better word, abandonment of the album concept in favor of unpredictability, is what makes this album special. I've decided that The Outsiders is a satirical take on the current state of Nashville "country." There is just no other justification for an artist who completely understood the album concept to go so far off the map. Most songs on this album are a ridiculous combination of genres that barely blend and honestly don't belong on the same record, but that, quite frankly, is the point. How many horribly constructed, it stuck to the wall so we'll record it messes have been infiltrating popular country radio waves, these days?

Then again, that's the difference between Eric Church and his peers. He knows how to blend influences. He knows how to adequately write and record a rock song, as evidenced by the aforementioned title track and songs like "That's Damn Rock and Roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need to just listen to this album over and over February 21, 2014

It gets better the more you really listen to every song and read between the lines on what Eric is talking about. Been a long time fan since the beginning and I'm really starting to warm up this album.

This is not some Luke Bryan crap this is a well thought and written album.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Will Grow On You! February 18, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Eric Church and his band put forth an album full of depth and brutal honesty. It has taken me a few listens of the full album to appreciate the complexity and boundary pushing limits of this latest release. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of honest, pure artistic music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Church keeps the good stuff coming! February 20, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love Eric Church's music and this album continues where Chief left off. The songs range from the already known The Outsiders, a rock-ish themed, riot-starting song, to Like a Wrecking Ball, about wild and crazy love-making. He mixes country and rock and R&B so well you'll forget that's not how it was before. I'm so happy people are finally taking notice to what he's capable of and he just keeps getting better over time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning Strikes... Again. February 13, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The first time through the album, I was a little apprehensive. I wasn't sure what direction Eric was taking his career. Ironically I had this same feeling the first time I listened to "Chief."

Now that I've been through the album several times, I've come to enjoy all the nuances, the iconic song writing, the beat of the music, the intentionality and purpose of every note and sound on the disc. Nothing is done by accident. This album is a work of art.
