I discovered Hank III through his sterling work as bassist with Superjoint Ritual. Having long been a closet country fan, I decided to check out his albums when I read that he did country/'Hellbilly' shows in the US with his band, Assjack. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and hooked from day one. More upbeat than his later album 'Lovesick, Broke and Driftin', 'Rasin' Outlaw' has it all - baleful country ballads, foot tapping Honky Tonk and fantastic steel guitars and fiddles. Hank's voice may be a bit nasal for some but it suits the mood perfectly and can express all kinds of emotion, from yearning and lonesome to downright dirty. The songs all seem to imprint themselves in the memory from the first listen, especially 'Honky Tonk Girls', 'Devil's Daughter' and the fantastic, epic 'Cocaine Blues', which takes us on the journey of a good 'ol boy who shoots his woman down after one too many nips of whiskey and a bit of the old Bolivian marching powder.In short, a great album for country fans and even those who are new to the genre. Hank's family are well renowned in country circles and apparently he sounds a lot like his father, Hank Williams Jr and his grandaddy before him, Hank Williams Sr. I look forward to seeing Hank live if he ever comes to the UK either with Assjack (or 'The Damn Band') or on bass duties with Superjoint. This man has many strings to his bow and he ain't afraid to strum 'em.

Every now and again you hear something on the radio that just blows you away. . . I had never heard of Hank III until recently. This is a super album. Country music as it should be. Just love his versions of the Wayne Hancock songs. Make sure you get a copy and make sure you check out Wayne Hancock too.

hank williams is a true musical genius, this album is his purest country sound and sadly he himself doesn't like it much. at the time of production he was trapped in an unhappy recording relationship and forced into what he felt was a very limited playing style.

nontheless it has some beautiful tracks and is well worth the listen, for country fans it's a cracker, for those who struggle with country look out for other music, you could accidentally find yourself enjoying it :)

HASH(0x9b800198) out of 5 stars Honky Tonkin' w/ Hank the 3rd 18 Mar. 2000
By funkycold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I admit not being a fan of country music at..that is " the modern so called country music"...I still enjoy playing the classics time to time Cash/Waylon,Hank Jr/Hank Sr./Jones,etc,,etc,,..but in past 5 years or more I got fed up and disgusted by the sound I heard from airwaves and the sound of these new "pop-rock-hollywood artists". The only recent artists I do buy is Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam when they have a new release out. I was in Target shopping last week..and I saw a video from Hank III on the screen. I immediately gave the screen my full attention and was knocked out by the song. Not to mention his stark resemblence to Hank Sr. in look and voice.. I wondered who IS this "Hank III"? ..some wannabe using the name? ...I did some research on the net..and found out he is the grandson of Hank Sr. and son of Hank Jr.! ...aso saw that he is playing a concert nearby in June. Ive since purchased the CD..and I wont get in to reviewing each song...but got to say...its such a welcome of fresh air! ..Excellent CD of what were missing in country music today! Hope to hear more from this artist in future.

HASH(0x9b8001ec) out of 5 stars the album i've been waiting for 29 Mar. 2005
By 1951 Willys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is the epitome of honkytonk country. I have been waiting damn near all my life for this album. Many have tried but none have come this close to the real thing. I can listen to this for days and not get tired of it. It may not be for everyone but this is as good as it gets for the genre. His father may have left a few things to be desired but Hank III picks up right where his grandfather left off and brings a modern edge to this music. If I could rate this as six stars I would. A classic in music almost forgotten.

HASH(0x9d42d498) out of 5 stars Second Coming of Hank Williams Sr. or Wayne Hancock? 19 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I agree with pretty much everything everyone's already said in these reviews. This is an excellent album that, sadly, will never be played on Country radio nowadays. My only complaint (and the thing that's keeping it from a 5 star rating) is that Hank III at times sounds so much like Wayne "The Train" Hancock that it's scary! Admittedly, Mr. Hancock has borrowed heavily from Hank Sr., as has the latter's grandson. Hancock is also starting to get much more heavily into Texas Swing music on his own 3rd CD. Hank III's album eerily recreates the sound of WH's first 2 albums here, although he does just plain flat out rock more of the two (and uses a drummer full-time - something Hancock does not). Ultimately, the voices of these two sound very similar - and the comparisons will NOT be unaided by the fact that Hank III does 3 Hancock songs on this debut CD, plus thanks WH in the liner notes. Hell - I like 'em both!

HASH(0x9b800d14) out of 5 stars Risin' Outlaw is Absolutely Wonderful! 17 Jan. 2000
By Baker Yokley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On a Friday afternoon when I discovered Hank Williams III will be opening the first eight dates of the upcoming Beck tour, I purchased Risin' Outlaw. I saw this release while passing through the record store that same afternoon. This is what country music is supposed to sound like. I can't believe how refreshing it was to listen to this disc. Hank Williams III makes me feel good about the future of country music. I consider much of today's country music to be unlistenable. If Curb Records is not doing everything they can to promote this CD, I will never understand that one. I like this CD as much as ANY purchase I have made in the last year, and that includes all types of music. You can play this CD over and over again. Try it! Being from Nashville, it's nice to have a new example of country music I can stand behind till the end of time. I wish Hank Williams III all of the best in the world. This disc is great, and it made my month.

HASH(0x9b8006b4) out of 5 stars Yelpin' Country 21 July 2002
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hank III's first CD is solidly rooted. "I might get drunk and rob a bank," he sings on the rocking opener "I Don't Know." "I'm bettin' you're not losin' sleep over me, but if I'm wrong, come over & keep me company," he sings hopefully on the toe tapper "You're the Reason." (not the Carole King song covered by Celine Dion -- just in case you wondered) Shelton wrote the flat out rocker "If the Shoe Fits." "87 Southbound" is a loping slap-your-thighs crooner, "I don't need to hear any more excuses that I don't love you." The pedal steel gets pushed down to the floorboard on Buddy & Julie Miller's weeper "Lonesome for You." "What Did Love Ever Do to You" is one of my favorites, an excellent rocker, "You broke something sacred, precious & true." I find the talked lyrics marginally effective on the slow weeper "On My Own." "Honky Tonk Girls" is a lively toe tapper with great electric lead guitar and a heavy dose of pedal steel. "Devil's Daughter" is a midtempo toe tapper, "She just can't be tamed; she's a burning flame." For a song about drugs & murder, I must say "Cocaine Blues" comes off as a fun country ballad. Another favorite of mine is "Thunderstorms & Neon Signs" with its soft tone and Wayne Hancock melody. "Why Don't You Leave Me Alone" is essentially Hank Sr.'s "Mind Your Own Business" with different words. The live recording leaves some to be desired as far as the acoustics, but Hank III does jam wildly on the music. My least favorite track concludes the CD; "Blue Devil" is a laborious # about selling your soul which is also recorded with poor acoustics, at Hank's home if I recall from the liner notes. All in all, this is a great little CD with plenty of country yelpin' to satisfy hombres & cowgirls worldwide. Enjoy!
