2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, November 3, 2012
This review is from: Hope On The Rocks [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I love Toby's music....I've often championed his work to those who would dismiss him as a simpleton redneck. He's always managed to make relevant country music without succumbing to the trends plaguing today's pop/country Nashville scene. He's a great performer and puts on an incredible stage show. All that being said, there is not one "stand out" song on this record. The bright moments are relegated to a nice guitar riff or a clever lyric here and there, but overall, these songs feel like they are leftover material from his last three or four records, the songs that didn't make the cut. The best song on the record is the live version of "Whiskey Girl." The remixes of "Red Solo Cup" and "Beers Ago" are just bad. I can handle the "Red Solo Cup" remix as the song is simply a throw away party song, and while catchy, it's no indication of Toby's talent. Good thing he didn't write it. But "Beers Ago" is a great song about growing up in a small town and adding a bad drum sample and techno sounds does not do it justice. I'll go ahead and put this record on my ITunes, but I'll stick with his more recent efforts of the last couple years as they stand head and shoulders over "Hope on the Rocks."

Sorry but I am really confused about your review on this album. Is there an extended version that you are talking about because I don't see any of the songs you mention in your review on this album. I don't see a song called Whiskey Girl or any remixes of Red Solo Cup or Beers Ago. Can you please explain?

Yes...I was referring to the "deluxe edition"
