For an artist to have any kind of impact, he has to be unique in sounds and styles. Furthermore, a no nation would pay for a lot of diapers. Respect to all people and their beliefs… For me it was important to notice the references promoting his experiences with god as much as the references possibly expressing doubts about god. I hope Sturgill continues to make more awesome music for years to come and his next album is even better. What I love about Sturgill is the fact that he can really cut it live too.
And yes, he can sing; but he sounds like someone else who was more talented. I hope he does whatever his heart tells him is right, even though I still hope there will be many more songs. There was some cheering and applause. Until I became an adult and to close to 30 for comfort! How that could ruin an entire album for someone is just unbelievable to me. However a new sound will come along eventually, whether it be country, pop or another genre, and take their attention away. The average country music listener is lazy and wants to be told what to listen to.
The problem is simply that its evolving outside of the genre. Song ends, a handshake, and a green light. This is more the speed of the reviews you see in the back of mags that try to cover every release in a utilitarian mode. Your scolding was kind of vague. I am going to teach this man a lesson.
I am not for any censorship, even on something like black metal that may be totally anti-christian in lyrical content. Our last albums went to 1 without any help from the Mainstream Country Music establishment…and our next albums will too. Outstanding stuff from Sturgill once again. Right now the country music farm system mostly resides in songwriting channels. I think that alone would do alot for the prestige and respectablility of the genre. This newfound fame has to be hard to handle along with having a child on the way and hope he can find a way to handle it well. Sturgill just has sooooo much potential.
Whatever my opinion of his sound, Sturgill has proven himself unique with this album. Sturgill sound a lot like Sturgill. How dare this man make an entire album without a mention of me or my business partner, Lipgloss!!??!! After a few more hand tossings the group walked out. For example the double dubbing of the lead parts in a couple of tracks really pulled me in. A previously unnoticed man, likely homeless, bolts upright from his slouch against a street sign and begins walking toward the lowered passenger window. Sturgill actually touches on a wide variety of subjects during these ten tracks. I can definitely see how that production choice might limit some of the albums potential audience on the mainstream side of the fence … but, ehh, it sounds good to me.
I like a lot of what both of these guys do, but the weirdness can sometimes be a big turnoff to traditionalists. Cranes his neck towards the music and begins clapping and stomping in time. His journey and the stops along the way. If we were to extend that idea to anyone it would have to be Jamey Johnson and we all know how that turned out. I think the venue is really what threw things off.
The -esque quality in 's singing voice remains, but that's built in. I just choose not to buy stuff like that. Holy fucking shit, this album. However a new sound will come along eventually, whether it be country, pop or another genre, and take their attention away. This is not the case with analog, which is weird because I thought that I had read that this album was recorded on analog equipment? These songs and their production values, though immediately reconizable, are more varied and textured than those of his debut--there's no pedal steel here for one thing. If enough fans get behind an artist, eventually the mainstream has to pay attention. I support Sturgill completely in that he is a fresh new voice in country music, but I may have to pass on this album.
Just let go is a fine ballad love the steel work on this track. So I searched what I could find about Sturgill and stumbled upon your wonderful website. Everyone said the show was great, but that Sturgill was moody, and left without shaking any hands. Bands like Creed yes I admit it I liked them and I still think My Own Prison is a great album , 3 Doors Down, Seether, Shinedown mainly because I loved Brent Smiths voice and even some harder stuff like Metallica, Godsmack and Black Label Society still love Zakk Wylde to this day. Who in your opinion would be the best to save country music? With that in mind, my point about Jamey was simply that he is a traditionalist artist that many people got behind and are still supportive of. Truck driver, became popular as a singer, remained a card-carrying member of the Teamsters the whole time.
What passes for Country Music these days is mighty strong…smelling. It may not be with this album, but if Sturgill Simpson continues this level of growth, the sky is the limit. To me it is a polarizing song lyrically. All my life, good music was on the radio. I also give it two guns up! There is and will only be one Waylon. If he is going to make some noise in Nashville, then it is crucial that he is unique.
With that said, if this genius of a man keeps making music like this, he will be the savior because we will make him that. But it does make me cringe a bit when I hear these moments, especially with headphones. File this under evidence that Sturgill Simpson is making the world a better place: Driving through our fair city on an absolutely gorgeous day, windows down, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music turned way up. Not much I can add to the chorus that is justifiably praising this album. I damn sure doubt it. If he sounds like and reminds the media of someone else then he will never be more than average. They penned big songs for others, and then won their right to be performers.
