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."

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.
Takes a few listens to get into it, not as easy to listen to as chief.for me it's the equal of chief, everytime I listen to it,it gets better
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.
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.
The sense of humour was an unexpected and very welcome bonus.
