Average User Score: 8.3Jun 24, 2013Naming your album This Is Country Music takes a lot of guts that not many current country stars could pull off,but Brad Paisley rises to the challenge and passes with flying colors.
Whether it's Commercial Country,Pop Country,Classic Country of even Bluegrass,Brad makes sure he touches base with every country sound there is.
There's the clever take on Alabama songs Old Alabama,and the seriously catchy Working On A Tan which also has a little Beach Boys vibe to it.The other great up tempos include Be The Lake,Don't Drink The Water(with Blake Shelton),Camouflage and Toothbrush.
There's also some classic soppy Brad ballads, such as New Favorite Memory and Love Her Like She's Leavin' with Don Henley providing some awesome harmonies.
Plus the standout power ballad Remind Me with Carrie Underwood.This song will easily be in the run for Song of the Year!
Brad also touches the heart with A Man Don't Have To Die and the heart breaking One Of Those Lives,both will leave you thinking.
He rounds off the album with the Bluegrass themed Gospel song Life's Railway To Heaven.
This album is an all round example of what real Country music is all about.This will satisfy long standing Brad Paisley fans and introduce new ones.
THIS is country music people!

Average User Score: 8.2Jun 24, 2013This is what a mature band sounds like, Every single song is well produced, the Lyrics are great, Riffs are perfect, the Bridges are always top notch (like in every album they have) everything is well put together. This album was released after their drummer (The Rev) passed away, and because of that I thought they weren't going to put very much effort in their album which came a few months after. I was wrong, they came with their best album, yet. This album sounds different from anything they have done before, it is a much slower album and it sounds a lot more melodic. Favorite songs; So Far Away, Victim, Buried Alive and Save Me. It's a definitely buy.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Jun 24, 2013This is what a Hip-Hop album should sound like, amazing beats, keys, patterns, melodies and lyrics. This is the work of two people who we're inspired to create an album. The lyrics in most songs are very meaningful and powerful, there is no fillers in this album. Favorite songs of the album are; Starting Over, Wing$, Same Love, Make The Money and Neon Cathedral. I very much recommend this album, It's a must buy.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Jun 24, 2013The songs are generic and very un-inspired, West has fallen off, every single song sounds like a filler, it seems as if he was just bored and decided to get in the studio. There isn't any melodies, drum patterns. This is not music at all. I do not recommend this album, Buy it at your own risk.… Expand
