    The quality of musicianship, lyrical content and melodies on What You See Is What You Get marks one of the top calibre country albums of the decade.

    What You See Is What You Get is a solid album, proudly made just the way they used to back in the 1990s.

    Did the album, as good as it is, need to be 17 songs long? No; it feels less like taking listeners on an old-school album journey than just flooding the streaming zone with potential hits.

    Combs’ second full-length, then, sounds less like an album and more like a collection of singles that will be crowding country radio for the next two years.

    “What You See Is What You Get” challenges him less than his debut album did. It is mundanely forceful, laden with chunky guitars and hard-snap drums, and just barely ambitious. Which is to say, in the current country ecosystem, reasonably effective. Where Combs shows the most promise is in his emergent desire to restore the genre to the high-octane pep of the 1990s.

    A really solid album from Luke Combs, as one has come to expect from him. Bringing his signature rock-inspired country sound once again to aA really solid album from Luke Combs, as one has come to expect from him. Bringing his signature rock-inspired country sound once again to a 17-track album with no downtime. The New York Times really just doesn't get it. How anyone takes them seriously at this point is beyond me. I highly recommend this album! Expand
