Amazon.com

Trick Pony's third album finds them musically more varied and adventurous--covering Los Lonely Boys' "Senorita" and Bonnie Tyler's "It's a Heartache," and inviting Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish aboard the soulful "Sad City." But the band still suffers an identity crisis--whether to be a serious musical ensemble/honky-tonk presence under the lead of Keith Burns and Heidi Newfield, or to let the insufferable Ira Dean prank them into a crazy, fun-loving video band--that brands them as lightweights. And it doesn't help that they insist that R.I.D.E. stands for "Rebellious Individuals Delivering Entertainment," or that they sprinkle inane sound bites from George Jones between a couple of songs. That said, Newfield still belts a fine, honkin' attitude number ("Ain't Wastin' Good Whiskey on You"), and knows how to wring the emotion out of a heartbreak ballad ("When I Fall")--and Burns is both an affecting songwriter and occasional lead vocalist. Yet in the end, there's a desperation about this record, seen in the inclusion of 14 tracks when they should have gone lean, and in their inviting a plethora of big names (particularly Kris Kristofferson) to add legitimacy. How long these Ponies can continue to learn new tricks remains to be seen. --Alanna Nash

Yes, this CD has finally come out...its about time! It seems we waited forever for this outstanding new disc from Heidi and the boys! I love this disc! I bought it 2 days ago and it hasn't left my CD player yet! The remake of Bonnie Tyler's "It's a Heartache" with Heidi's voice sent chills down my spine. "When I Fall" is a classic Trick Pony ballad. Heidi's bluntness is definitely shown on "I Didn't". The other remake of the Los Lonely Boys "Seniorita" was totally unexpected, but great! But, I think the best song and my personal favorite is "Stand In the Middle of Texas". Oh...my...gosh...totally unbelievable! It is classic country with a twist in my opinion. It is definitely the biggest highlight on this new disc. "Stand In the Middle of Texas" is a track that'll be played in every honky tonk from coast to coast after one in the morning after everybody's left the bar. It is the "tear in my beer" song on the album. I would almost venture to say this would be Trick Pony's "Where Would You Be" song on the album! If Trick Pony doesn't receive a CMA for something on this disc there's a problem.

Finally new music from Trick Pony. This CD is hot front to back and sideways!! Heidi can honky-tonk with the best of 'em on songs like "I Can Live With That" and the good time "Ain't Wastin' Good Whiskey on You" and then bring tears to your eyes with the touching "Maryann's Song" and "When I Fall". I love how the group switches up who sings lead and Keith's turn on "Sad City" with Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish is awesome! Ira rocks out on two tunes - the hilarious "Hillbilly Rich" and "Cry Cry Cry". My favorite songs are "Senorita", "It's a Heartache" and the clever "I Didn't". A lot of big names in Nashville appear in the liner notes, like Sherrie Austin, Matraca Berg (co-wrote "Stand in the Middle of Texas") and Jeffrey Steele (they cover his "Once a Cowboy"). Hilarious too are the bits with George Jones. This disc is hot - getcha some!

At the time this came out. I would have to say that Trick Pony was my favorite group. Although mostly by default. Alabama had disbanded. Restless Heart wasn't doing much. And The Oak Ridge Boys weren't getting any radio play. This cd isn't bad. It didn't really have any hits either. I remember the video of It's A Heartache more then I do hearing the song on the radio. The Bride is my favorite song on here. And Cry Cry Cry is next. Trick Pony had an energy about them. I wish they would have stayed together. I thought they were better then they were given credit for.

First of all...I don't think listening to this whole cd is tiresome at all...I can't get enough of it. I think 14 songs is a good number because it has been so long since Trick Pony has released a new cd...mostly having to do with switching record companies. Even though there are different types of songs here...they all fit together very well and the cd flows smoothly. If you are tired of the stuff that passes for music these days.....try something refreshing and give Heidi, Keith and Ira a listen. Grab your ticket to R.I.D.E. now!

WOW! This has got to be one of the best country albums I've listened to in a long long time. TP's honky tonk style never lets up throughout every song. I enjoyed this album so much I purchased TP's other 2 and enjoy them just as much. I highly recommend TP to anyone looking for a unique and refreshing sound in country music. This album is excellent. Enjoy!

The music is good but I find the music cover image offensive so only giving 1 star for out of line cover art they chose for this cd. artists need to think about what they put on their covers. they are in a position to influence others & should use that platform for good. to show a sheep being abused on cover is lacking is disgusting. encourage good in this world with your actions - not more bad.

It's been a long wait for R.I.D.E., one that seemed like it could take forever. The first single, "The Bride," failed to catch on; ironically, it was a remake ("It's a Heartache") that launched them back into the Top 20. Why is that ironic? Because as TP fans know, these guys (and newly-married gal) can sing and write and play with the best of them, forging their own original way by keeping it honky-tonk and hardcore country.

One thing about this album is that there are more cover tunes; aside from "It's a Heartache," they also do songs penned by Los Lonely Boys, Jeffery Steele, Sherrie Austin, and other notable Nashville songwriters. There're also plenty of guests: Tracy Byrd, Joe Diffie, Mel Tillis, Tanya Tucker, and Darryl Worley add harmonies to the opening number; Darius Rucker duets on "Sad City;" George Jones has cameo appearances throughout the album; and Kris Kristofferson gives an emotional delivery of a recitation by Heidi Newfield Johnson on "Maryann's Song," a tune written in memorial of her mother.

Elsewhere on the album, it's honky-tonk and more honky-tonk, with a ballad thrown in here and there for good measure. There's humor ("What finally tore our love apart was a matter of religion/He thought he was God and I didn't"); there's heartbreak ("It's a fool's game/Nothin' but a fool's game/Standin' in the cold rain/Feelin' like a clown"); there's whistful wonderlust ("Once a cowboy, always a cowboy/Between the blue sky and unbroken ground, he wears his freedom like a crown); there're rich hillbillies, lots of whiskey, and even a little Spanish. R.I.D.E. is Trick Pony at their best. Keith Burns, Heidi Newfield Johnson, and Ira Dean are three of the best performers country has to offer (see them live if you don't believe it), and R.I.D.E. perfectly captures their modern take on traditional honky-tonk music. Rebellious Individuals Delivering Entertainment...that's Trick Pony in a nutshell.
