Jamey Johnson proves that country can still have a soul with "That Lonesome Song". The instruments and vocals are crisp and clear giving the recording a welcome live feel. The songs are influenced by greats like Waylon, but with songwriting and originality that make them fresh and exciting. "In Color" is an expertly crafted song, one of the best in a long, long time. No cookie-cutter, manufactured songs in this bunch. I also noticed that Jamey must not be watching today's country stars because he forgot to style his hair and dress like he just jumped out of a boy band. Oh well, guess he'll just have to rely on his music!

This is the real deal. If you like Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Cash, and Johnny Paycheck then this CD is for you. If you like the Nashville "puppets" like Taylor Swift and all of the other robots swallowing up todays radio then you might want to avoid this one because this is REAL COUNTRY music. There is so much pedal steel guitar on this album that I had to open up a cold beer on the first song! This CD was recorded straight through so it makes you feel like you are in the recording studio with the band. It's unfortunate that Jamey Johnson only gets about a months worth of airplay and then dissappears, but "In Color" is hanging around and the video is being played a lot on CMT, but then they play a Sugarland video and I change the channel. Well I just finished the CD and my twelve pack so excuse me while I hit repeat and open a new case of beer. This CD is too good to put away now!

Jamey Johnson is a study in contrasts. This applies to his entire life, but I won't bother talking about that--just one listen to this album, you'll understand (with phrases like "the high cost of living ain't nothing like the cost of living high," Johnson is more than up-front about who he is and where he comes from). I'm talking strictly about his music. A little song he cro-wrote ("Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," maybe you've heard of it) became a huge smash hit. Same with a tune that won Song of the Year ("Give It Away"). Yet Johnson himself has flown under the radar, despite making two solid albums (three, if you count the version of THAT LONESOME SONG that was distributed solely through his website a year ago). Also, not a single one of his songs is halfway as commercially appealing as "Badonkadonk;" his songs are fiddle-and-steel outlaw tunes, strongly in the vein of Waylon Jennings.

Speaking of Waylon...Johnson channels Waylon here, in a way that is not at all exploitative, and is entirely heartfelt immitation. After all, the two songs Johnson didn't write are Waylon covers; and try listening to the title track and not think of Waylon's baritone gracing it. Johnson also owes a lot to the other greats--Kristofferson, Jones, Haggard, Cash, Coe, Paycheck, etc.--yet he's firmly his own artist. And I stress that last word--"artist." Like the afore-mentioned legends, Johnson has taken country music and transformed it into something that is--in my own humble opinion, being a budding songwriter myself, influenced by the same artists Johnson worships--almost timeless. He questions his own morality (as well as mortality, but the former is oh-so-much-more interesting, especially set to a steel guitar), he questions his beliefs, he questions everything...

Absolutely 100% true blue gut-wrenching country music. This is what music (should) be all about regardless of the genre. His first album is great, this one is real. Although the styles are polar opposite, this album puts me in mind of the Dixie Chicks, Long way round album. These people aren't just singing about life anymore - their life is in their songs.

Jamey Johnson is an awesome artist, regardless of what he sings, but in this album his songs come to life in a way that no one can deny. Life has grabbed him by the throat and his songs and voice are filtered through the pain and heartache he obviously has been through and this album is the result. Fantastic and cannot be recommended highly enough

This album is exactly why I love country music and you cannot EVER get better than that.

I recently found Jamey Johnson and to be honest if you need a good old time country cd this is the cd to get! Its true and heartfelt! Worth it to listen to each and every song! Jamey Johnson is one of those artist that takes the time when it comes to his music, from his time in jail till his heartfelt family emotions in the songs its one of those cd's you must keep a close ear on until you got the lyrics down!

I'm a diehard Waylon Jennings fan and this CD reminds me so much of his brillance in the 70's that you starting looking at the notes to make sure this is what it says it is.A honest to goodness hard core COUNTRY music CD,in 2008 no less,that will break your heart and move your soul.Jamey,I've forgiven you for "HonkyTonk Badonkadonk".Everybody that misses the good old days needs to go grab this masterpiece right now.

My first purchase of Jamey Johnsons music aside from a single he did with Shooter Jennings. I am an old Waylon fan, and can hear the ghost of Waylon bigtime in Jameys voice, sound, just the way he plays his guitar; so much like Waylon. I know we'll be back to purchase more, soon.
