Perfect country album!,
This review is from: Chief (Audio CD)
"Chief" is Eric Church's 3rd studio album and picks up right where he left off with 2009's "Carolina." Church is the master at writing country music that rocks, and his music is the epitome of what every country singer should strive for: great songs, good musicianship, and great lyrics that make you want to sing and dance, have fun, or lament over a broken heart. "Creepin'" is the album's first track and is aptly named. It starts off from a seemingly far away distance and then creeps into a honky-tonk roar. The arrangement and delivery of the song are as unique as it is fun. "Drink In My Hand" can easily become an anthem for any guy looking for a fun night out on the town. "Keep On" features some rock and roll guitar licks that will raise the hairs on the back on your neck. "Homeboy" is the first single from the album and tells the story of someone pleading with his brother to turn away from trouble and get his life back on track. The lyrics are deep and meaningful as well as catchy and melodic. "Springsteen" amazingly captures the sound of the person it's named after without coming off as a rip off of The Boss' sound. What sets Church apart from other country singers is his not only his voice, but his passion and delivery. This man sings with passion and you can FEEL it. If you're a fan of this genre of music and haven't listened to Eric Church then you're missing something! Highly recommended!

Not to mention he writes all his own stuff! Which to me goes a long way. I know I'll catch some flak for saying this, but that's the reason I'm not a huge fan of most country music. It's biggest stars simply cherry pick the songs they like & buy the rights to them. I won't mention names hmm hmm G Strait, hmm hmm Jason Aldean, among many others.

Thank you I agree completely. Buy his music as soon as it comes out. Word of mouth promotion to those who have heard him on the radio but never heard all his music.
