4.0 out of 5 stars Just a solid bit of rockin' country, October 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Night Train (Audio CD)
This is just a solid disc all the way through. Aldean and his band know what works, and deliver another winning batch of modern country tunes with plenty of electric guitar in the mix. The old saying "there's nothing new under the sun" certainly applies to today's country music, but you have to remember, the core audience isn't generally interested in hearing artists break new ground. They (that is, we) want music we can sing along to in the car, or just relax with a cold drink and forget the worries of the day. And in this respect, NIGHT TRAIN is every bit as good an album as Jason's previous four.

Standouts include the romantic title track (probably my favorite at the moment), the "Turn the Page" homage "Wheels Rolin'," and David Lee Murphy's "Walkin' Away"--surely a future hit from a guy who knows how to make 'em. "1994" is getting some attention as a tribute to Joe Diffie, but it comes across just a tad silly in my opinion. But really, this is one of those albums where I never really feel the need to hit the SKIP button.

Basically, if you liked Jason's previous albums, I think you'll find NIGHT TRAIN a real pleasure.

Thanks for the great review! You're absolutely right - is the album groundbreaking? No, but it is still pretty enjoyable from start to finish if you like Jason Aldean's style.

Country fans don't want artists breaking new ground? Weird. Garth Brooks seemed pretty popular, along with Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart and many others from that time period that were certainly breaking ground relative to what was popular prior to their arrival. I don't hear a "sing along" song anywhere on this album. The fact that this new album is available for way under $10 speaks volumes about what those trying to sell it think of it...

LOL@CJM! Yeah, Jason is really gonna have to fight it out on the charts with all those current hitmakers! Get a calendar, man, you're listing "ground-breaking" artist from 15 or 20 years ago.

Yeah, I thought that was pretty funny, too. As for the price, I'm pretty sure that's why most people shop on this site: because the prices are unbeatable.
