    While Lowe Country tries, it rarely satisfies.

    Regardless of who is singing, or what they're singing, on Lowe Country Nick Lowe's wit, heart and humanity are always on display.

    [An] affectionate charity project to benefit the victims of floods and fires in Tennessee and Texas. [Dec 2012, p.95]

    Of the 13 songs here, roughly half are by male vocalists who, because of the twang in their voices or their choice of instrumentation, have a predictable, even generic, alt-country sound.

    The 13 songs, written between 1972 and 2001, show off the range and subtlety of Lowe's songwriting.

    Not bad, and nice for Nick. But for every good 'un, there's a dull 'un too.

    The rebelliousness and playfulness promised and hoped for are glaringly absent and the listener is, unfortunately, left with a collection of songs that wouldn't sound out of place coming from the speakers of your local Starbucks.

    Because of a noticeable lack of recognizable names contributing Lowe covers, the scope of this 14 track set is considerably more modest, but no less enjoyable.

    Sometimes things get a little too sweetly sleepy, but at its best this is a handsome, enjoyable listen.
