Product description

Product Description

The Outsiders represents an audacious quantum leap for Eric Church. The aggressive set, which consists almost entirely of Church s compositions or co-compositions, finds the iconoclastic singer-songwriter guitarist covering a dizzying amount of musical and lyrical ground, taking advantage of a wide range of sonic options to construct an adventurous, consistently thrilling ride. The result is Church's most revealing, personally-charged statement yet and one that challenges many of the accepted rules of contemporary country music.

With The Outsiders Church channels the same rebellious spirit that's always been his trademark and with his longstanding live band providing forceful, distinctive backup Church delivers some of his most compelling performances to date.

The Outsiders kicks off in style with the title track, an urgent declaration of purpose that demonstrates theartist's sharper-than-ever songwriting skills, while underlining his deep and enduring relationship with his audience. That anthemic opener is answered by the spare, edgy solo performance "A Man Who Was Gonna DieYoung," one of several tracks that emphasize Church's raw, emotionally expressive guitar work.That yin/yang balance established by those two tracks sets the anything-goes tone for an unpredictable sonic excursion that encompasses such far-ranging creations as the rollicking, tongue-in-cheek "Cold One," the groove-intensive epics "Roller Coaster Ride" and "Broke Record," the sensitive, bittersweet "Talladega" and"Give Me Back My Hometown," the organ-driven classic soul ballad "Like A Wrecking Ball," the rowdy,
swaggering "That's Damn Rock & Roll" and the slyly evocative story-song "The Joint." Those tunes maintain the combination of emotional insight and hard-headed badass attitude that's long been a hallmark of Church's work. Perhaps the album's most daring move is a hauntingly resonant trilogy that's comprised of the tensely introspective "Dark Side," the vivid Shel Silverstein-penned fable "The Devil and Billy Markham" (the album's sole outside composition) and the menacing "Devil, Devil."

To start with I wasn't sure, he's taken a new direction here. If you've got Chief and are expecting more of the same you may be disappointed.

After a few listens I'm completely hooked though. There's a strong rock influence throughout and some songs are quite dark.

Tracks like Rollercoaster Ride and Give Me Back My Hometown quickly become anthems I can't get out of my head.

Eric's passion and song writing excellence is evident throughout.

Eric has said that he hopes/want/intend his music to fit into any specific expectations and "genres" - he DOES that here!!!! It's just great!!! Some fantastic rockers (really - they DO ROCK big time!!!)), sublime, touching story-songs that tick every box, even a spoken word track (don't be afraid - FAB stuff) that are just lovely listening. It really is all here. OK - it may not sound like the "landmark" hit breakthrough that was "CHIEF" at some points, but what could be, and why should it???? Gotta move on.............and Eric is running fine on here, with an absolutely superb Band behind him. Also, MUST say, saw these Guys in Manchester on recent tour of UK - BOOM!!!!!!! Blew the place the apart!!!! Recommended - HIGHLY!!!!!! Honest now..............

Eric Church doesn't view himself as purely a country singer which can have a very mixed reaction in Nashville, especially on Country radio. His last album 'Chief' was simply brilliant, not a weak song on the album and he won every award going. So how would he follow that? Well with a harder edged album and one that sounds like it's a concept album. The concept being 'we are not going to play by the rules'.

It's a strong album, he has his own sound, but lets hope he doesn't get too big for his boots or become boring after a time. Like his other albums there are songs of drinking, drugs and being really bad ass! But at least there are less religious elements too this one, god knows how Americans seam to put these two aspects together in country music so often. But his songs are deep and need to be listened to, not just back ground music. Another great album from Eric Church.

Eric Church does not follow the country pop of many of today's country artists; he does not sound the same as so many do. He stretches the boundaries of country music. He has originality. He has a rebel streak or is a bit of a country outlaw or his music has a rock n roll edge with a southern influence. At the same time, his albums are full of real country music with plenty of honky tonk. His last album Chief was outstanding and a hard album to follow but he has done it again. This album is outstanding. Highlights include the Sourthern soul of Wrecking Ball, The Outsiders , the nostalgic and brilliant Hometown (my favourite) but it is almost churlish to pick out highlights because it is an album full of variety and great sounds. I think those that are fans of Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Charlie Daniels Band, Hank Williams Jr will all find soemthign to like on this album. However this is not country music that is stuck in the past....it is modern country music ......music for the future......Indeed I would suggest those that like the magnificient Bruce Springsteen will like this album. I thought before he sung 'Springsteen' on his last album, he was country music's answer to Springsteen and this album confirms that for me. It is an album of real quality. This is an exciting and entertaining listen that is going to be in my CD players for a long time as was his previous album. This will be one of the best releases this year....Highly recommended.

looks like im in a minority here but ....

this isnt a country album its a rock album

its not a very good rock album

there are some good tracks and some good parts of tracks but nothing that holds a candle to previous work

its Eric making a deliberate change of style to meet his 'Outsider' styling. It feels like a too deliberate, over thought, over produced exercise. it feels like they had meetings about this change rather than it being an organic natural progression or move.

he tried something and i dont think it worked.

the Outsider thing doesnt work...he is a major success on a major label.... Hank3 is an outsider, Shooter Jennings is too. Eric? not so much - thefact he keeps telling us he is lets us know that.

Paul Jones on BBC Radio 2 introduced me to Eric Church. I was bowled over. Great rhythms, great lyrics and great music.
The sense of humour was an unexpected and very welcome bonus.
