Wow! This is a Great Album!
By stop the pop
I’ll admit, I haven’t listened to much new country since about the time Shania left the scene. No real reason, just didn’t keep up with it. While sampling many of today’s country stars I came across this album and realized what I’ve been missing.
“Flatline” hooked me immediately-I’m a rock fan and this song has a lot of that in the mix, not to mention a great vocal melody in the chorus. I thought with such a strong track as the album opener the rest may fizzle out but I was wrong. Tracks like Middle of a Memory, Stay Downtown, Broke Down, and the good time vibe of “No Can Left Behind” particularly stood out to me. The bonus “album only” tracks are as good as the rest and well worth purchasing the full album for.
Nice job Mr. Swindell, you've brought me back to the genre and I look forward to hearing more.
