    With the exception of the occasional detour into heartbreak ("I Don't Do Lonely Well") or empathy ("Black Tears"), it can feel like he's doing the same stylized smalltown-conjuring over and over, to the point of hollowness.

    Even at his most powerful, singing hard in his nasal voice--it's got impact but not much traction.

    The traditional tones and textures of country music are largely lost in the array of guitar solos that sound like Bon Jovi audition tapes.

    Certainly, Night Train is huge, but its size feels derived by divine proclamation: it is big simply because it was intended to be big but at its core it feels weary, a little hollow, and not at all fun.
