The magic of Blaine Larsen is his rich baritone voice. It is the voice of a much older man, much like his hero George Strait. The songs that Blaine sings are a reflection of his country roots, straight-ahead, traditionalist country. Blaine Larsen is from Washington State, and he developed his country flare from his step-dad. He began singing at an early age and at the age of 16 had his first country CD.
This is the second CD for Blaine Larsen and with his rich voice he finds himself opening for Gretchen Wilson on her "Redneck Redemption Tour"
He also sings with Gretchen Wilson on the song, "Lips of a Bottle". Blaine wrote this song with a friend form Washington state. This duet brings back the feeling of George Jones/ Tammy Wynette.
The first song, is a witty, ditty "I Don't Know What She Said," a song about language differences in Mexico, and it has become a Top Forty on the Country Music Charts.
My favorite song is Mac Davis's 1972 pop hit "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me". It seems fresh and new sung by Blaine Larsen.
"I'm In Love With A Married Woman" gives us a fresh look at love and sung with some sensitivity. He has surprise for us with this one.
He has a somber commentary of "Someone Is Me" and the delivery is sweet.Read more ›
Ever since the assault of the Music Mafia aka Big and Rich, country music, like its pop counterpart, has withered down to sheathing a wall of noise with its technological bells and whistles. Fortunately, there's still a remnant that has eschewed such sonic trinkets and they have made a bull's eye for songs that deal with the heart. Of this persuasion Blaine Larsen is the haut monde. Like Larsen's predecessor "Off to Join the World," the strength of his sophomore effort is in the songs---all of which deals with the different dimensions of love, be it romantic, spiritual or social. And part of the album's success comes from the contributions of new co-producer Tim Johnson, who has a knack for choosing heart stirring tunes evidenced by the sensitive ballads he has written in the past (i.e. Diamond Rio's "God Only Cries," Mindy McCready's "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now," and Mark Chesnutt's "Thank God for Believers" among others). Vocally, 20-year old Larsen's deep-throated tenor possesses a maturity well beyond his years and the nuances he brings to each note show depth and reflection.
Not surprisingly, the best entries come from the pen of Tim Johnson, who has invested 5 of his tunes. Most outstanding is "I'm in Love with a Married Woman." What might appear like a cheating tune with the protagonist stealing a romantic rendezvous with a mysterious lady only turns out to be a tune of marital fidelity as the lyrics unrolls. With an irresistible melody, this ballad is indeed a strong contender for the record of the year. Once a minor hit for Mark Chesnutt, Larsen ought to do justice to this ballad by bringing it all the way to the top position.Read more ›
Highlights include the album's sweetly funny lead single "I Don't Know What She Said," the post-high school John Mellancamp-styled romantic loss of "Rockin' You Tonight," and the Gretchen Wilson duet "Lips of a Bottle." Mac Davis' "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me" uses Larsen's low register to terrific effect, and the socially conscious "Someone is Me," also recently recorded by Kenny Rogers, is a great fit for a 20-year-old. Throughout, Larsen's confidence and natural way with song tempos amplify his natural gifts. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2006 hyperbolium dot com]
