"Wheelhouse" is closer to "Play", his guitar album (which
I admittedly enjoy much more than this CD), than
its predecessor "This is Country Music." Paisley writes in the
liner notes that this album was intentionally created to be
a different compilation and he is correct. If you are looking
for a standard Brad Paisley album, you're better off
selecting "American Saturday Night", "This is Country Music",
or "Fifth Gear." Those albums feature much more of his
signature sound, song choice, and delivery that listeners
are used to. All of that being said, "Wheelhouse"
is not a flop. The lyrics to "Southern Comfort Zone" and "Beat This Summer"
are similar to Brad's usual fare, even if the instrumentals
have a slicker production quality. What sets this album
apart from the rest of his catalogue are the multiple interludes
(i.e. the wacky "Heart Attack" featuring Eric Idle), attempts to
cover more serious territory ("Accidental Racist" featuring LL Cool J),
as well as songs that are tailored to the overall sound and flow of this album
("Harvey Bodine", and "Death of a Single Man").
In short, the album sounds more like an indy record that was created
by an artist who is exploring new territory as opposed to a more
typical Nashville mainstream production. As Brad says, the album
may not be for everyone, but hopefully, it's for you.
I don't think that I will be listening to this album on a daily
basis, but as an occasional change of pace, probably.

I usually like some of Brad Paisley's songs. It gets to be where his songs sound the same with few exceptions such as Old Alabama and We danced as well as a lot of his older music that wasn't so "campy". Brad Paisley is a phenomenal guitar player. I usually only buy one or two songs at a time bc of the novelty of some songs and bc of them being over played already on the radio. I happened to be listening to a song on the radio the other day and was floored. It completely made me feel 100% where I needed to be at that moment. It is the song I can't change the world. I fell in love with it and decided to buy it and seeing that he had paired up with Dierks Bentley and Mat Kearney I decided to buy the whole album. I even laughed at the song Karate about a not so funny topic "spousal abuse" and a wife getting even with a abusive husband. But then I saw (after the purchase) that there was a song called accidental racist. Where he pairs up with LL Cool J. I love LL's old stuff as well and decided I would give it a listen thinking it would be a campy song as well. What I got Floored me in an opposite way. It was Brad Paisley apologizing for wearing a Lynrd Skynrd Tshirt bc he didnt realize it would offend someone and that he was just being a fan of the band. He was basically apologizing for voicing his right to wear whatever he wanted bc it wasnt PC and it would offend someone. The song then goes into the LL Cool J Verse where he tells Brad that he shouldn't judge him due to the baggy pants he wears and the chains he has around his neck. Just because he looks like a thug doesn't mean that he is one. Does that not contradict what Brad just sang at that point? Why would I apologize for you bc a bands logo happens to be a confederate flag?Read more ›

This album is a poppy mess. There are a couple excellent tracks, such as "Southern Comfort Zone", "Mona Lisa" and "Runaway Train", but others are too heavily influenced by pop and hip-hop, and Paisley just doesn't pull it off well. "Beat This Summer" is probably the most forgettable single he's ever released, and the beat is obnoxious.

As for the controversial "Accidental Racist", the intentions may be good but the final product is awful. The lyrics are poorly thought out and attempts to defend displaying rebel (confederate) flags and equating African Americans' anger over slavery with how some white people are uncomfortable with minorities wearing bling make the song very insincere.

Hopefully Brad's next effort will be a lot better and return to a more country sound and his usual well written lyrics. This album just doesn't hold up compared to "Time Well Wasted", "5th Gear" or "American Saturday Night".
