I could write a bunch of words to try to describe how good this Freshman launch is but they would fall short.

I've seen a L-O-T of fresh country faces over the years and Brantley Gilbert is by far the best thing to hit the country scene since Chris Cagle... The trouble is that I fear he'll suffer the same fate as Chris if he doesn't start to do something about his management and do some real touring (and break out of the small town hick joints with his buddies). I honestly believe someone along the way told this guy that he'd never make it enough times to where he still kinda believes it and that's why he's still thinking so small almost a year after his debut. He needs to hitch his wagon to a big name long enough to show that he can put 10,000 butts in the seats on his own... Like what Kenny did with Tim (let's be honest!)...

I started listening to Brantley on satellite radio. Downloaded a few singles and fell in love. Bought both of his CDs in the same day. This is a good CD. Some fun songs and some heart touching songs. "Modern Day Prodigal Son" is an amazing song with such a hopeful message. Some songs with a more traditional sound, some with a modern sound. Glad I bought them.

I have to say, that I was unaware that Brantley had an album out before his "Halfway to Heaven" album. I bought this one as well on Amazon and let me tell you, this is yet another album that blew me away with Brantley's songwriting skills. Brantely wrote all of the songs that are on this album and if you get a chance to listen, you will hear a couple songs that fellow country music star Jason Aldean recorded.

A Modern Day Prodigal Son is a great country album. Brantley Gilbert has the perfect voice. It is strong and sex with just enough southern drawl. I would definitely recommend this album to any country music fan.

There seems to be 2 different Brantley Gilberts out there. I am trying to figure out what the order of release was for his 2 CDs. Some places list "Modern Day Prodigal Son" as his 1st CD and some list "Halfway to Heaven" as his 1st CD. Here is what I can tell you about the two CDs:

I personally liked "Halfway to Heaven" much better than "Modern Day Prodigal Son". Half way to heaven is much harder, more of the newer country rock thing. Better, harder guitars and a much rougher, smokey whiskey soaked vocal. I doubt many people would consider it country in a lot of ways. It is much more of a man's CD. I love the rough edge it has and how it seems to be so from the heart about who he is (at least who I thought he was).

Modern Day Prodigal Son is a lot softer. It has much, much cleaner and crisper vocals and lacks the hard guitar licks. It isn't anywhere near as in your face. It is much more country (or even pop) like than his other CD. There are some signs of the Brantley Gilbert from the other CD on this one . . . GRITs stands out as well as My Kind Of Party. However BG's version of My Kind Of Party is much softer and not as hard as Jason Aldean's version. If you've heard Jason's and liked it Brantley's might leave you wanting for the harder, in your face version.

At the end of the day the clear strength for both CD is the song writing. The lyrics are meaningful and well thought out. They flow like water in the song. While I like both CD's I strongly favor Halfway to Heaven over this CD. If you like the strong rock country mix you'll prefer Halfway to Heaven also. If you already have that CD I would still recommend buying this one. It is very good.

Brantley Gilbert is an amazing song writer and singer. His songs are really good. I love his version of My Kinda Party. Jason Aldean's is good too but he changes it up a bit. I recommend this CD to any country lover's

Not really sure why this guy is not as famous as Jason Aldean. Also not sure why he doesn't get the same accolades. Especially since he wrote a few songs for Aldean. This album is thoughtful, soulful, and a little bit fun. He certainly is a talent and this album makes that clear.
