Biography

It was the country music equivalent of a sonic boom – a sound so bold, so different and so powerful it sent shock waves throughout country radio and up the charts. That sound was “Brand New Man,” the chart-topping debut single that heralded the high-octane arrival of Brooks & Dunn in 1991. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn came out with musical guns blazing and in the years ... Read more in Amazon's Brooks & Dunn Store

Product Description

Brooks & Dunn ~ Tight Rope

Amazon.co.uk

For the first time, we have a Brooks & Dunn album without a single song co-written by the two singers. Moreover, the six songs written by Kix Brooks (three with Bob DiPiero) were co-produced by the duo and Don Cook, while the six written by Ronnie Dunn (five with Terry McBride) were co-produced by the duo and Byron Gallimore. It's almost as if this weren't a duo album but rather two solo albums scrambled together. This sharp division of labour may weaken the album in terms of consistency but it frees Dunn to croon a pair of hard-country ballads--"Hurt Train" and "Too Far This Time"--and to prove once and for all that he's one of the finest honky-tonk singers of his generation. And when Dunn switches to country-pop on the catchy original "You'll Always Be Loved by Me" or on the inspired fiddle-and-steel remake of John Waite's 1984 rock hit "Missing You", the vocals retain that same emotional transparency and drawling resonance. As for Brooks, well, he's a great live entertainer. --Geoffrey Himes

Format: Audio CD
Brooks and Dunn had been accustomed to success in a big way, with all their singles attaining high placings on the country charts - until the release of this album. For some reason, American country radio stations were less enthusiastic about the singles from this album. Only one of them (You'll always be loved by me, an outstanding ballad) made the top ten, with others such as Beer thirty (a great rocking country song) and Missing you (a cover of the John Waite pop classic) falling well short.

Clearly, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn were spending less time together, as they no longer co-wrote any songs together and they started using separate producers - Don Cook for Kix's songs and Byron Gallimore for Ronnie's songs. This may make for a less cohesive album but should not matter for a single released to radio. So it may just be that Kix and Ronnie did not make enough effort to promote the album via live appearances.

Whatever the reason for the failure of the singles (none of which made it to Greatest hits volume 2), this is an excellent album full of high quality music - great rocking songs and wonderful ballads. Apart from the tracks already mentioned, I particularly like Getting under getting over you (a great rocking song to open the album), Too far this time (a sad ballad), I love you more (a great ballad by Kix), All out of love (an original song, not a cover of the famous Air supply classic) and Texas and Norma Jean (a great story song by Kix), but I love the other songs too.

I first heard B&D when I bought their Greatest Hits and I was "hit" and hooked. To all those people out there who think Ronnie should go solo...well, hey, "diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks" huh? I personally think their different styles compliment each other. To those who are new to these guys, put your 'phones on, play "Don't Look Back Now", turn up the volume, lay back and see what Kix's voice does to you. No matter how often I play it I get gooseflesh and choked up. And that is just ONE track on this album (and other albums of theirs)which causes that sensation. My favourite duo.

This album barely scraped gold, and apparently, wasn't a particular joy to make, with both Ronnie and Kix working separately and with their own choice of producers, even likening the album's title to their own career, something which wouldn't dissolve for another ten years. Although their least commercially successful album, it does contain many of the hallmarks which make Brooks & Dunn the most popular duo in Country music history, with a melding of rocked up honky tonk with sensitive ballads.

"Going Under Getting Over You" is an up-tempo morning-after lament of a lover who's gone; a scenario revisited on the album's sole Top Ten hit, the heavily pop-flavoured "You'll Always Be Loved By Me" and "The Trouble With Angels", the latter being one of Kix's chances to shine, something which he does remarkably easily on the 80s rock of "I Can't Stop My Heart", a lost single if ever there was one. "Missing You", a cover of the 80s John Wait rock hit, crawled into the Top 20, and gives Ronnie a chance to unleash his stridently soulful moan, while they get back to basics on "Beer Thirty", another hit, which returns the duo to their honky tonk roots.
