Customer Review

on 8 March 2013
okay, i bought this album because of the low price and because i was tired of always seeing AC/DC and abba at the top of the artists list on my computer. i'm hardly country and western's biggest advocate, and i figured this cd would be at best diverting for a couple of spins, after which i could consign it to the pile and rarely look at it again. my enthusiasm was hardly encouraged by the pictures a quick google search elicited; of mr tippin playing a guitar tastelessly emblazoned with the stars and stripes (although i suppose that is the western spirit) - needless to say, this google search was conducted only after i had placed the order. nonetheless, for a penny plus p&p, i figured there was no losing.

ladies and gentlemen, miscreants and reprobates, this album is NOT INEFFABLY CRAPPY. it actually won me over fairly swiftly, opening with a good stiff 4/4 rhythm (none of that one-two-three, one-two-three line dancing bull), and a nice guitar riff. it's sort of rock/country, does not sound inescapably naff, and is very easy to listen to. mr tippin has a decent singing voice, and although the lyrics are typically maudlin - he's dancing with the devil and a bottle of whisky and he doesn't want to live without your love; you get the idea - you won't find yourself cringing and wanting to shut him up with a ten pound hammer from his tool box. far from it, actually.

i'd recommend this to anyone with no strong aversion to country (more like countryish) music, and fans of almost anything rock or folk. put it on in the car.
