Album Review: Hey Y’All

Album Review : Hey Y’All
Artist : Cole Swindle
Genre : Country
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Like the usual country albums from past to present, there are common themes like, drinking whiskey, love gone wrong, loving a girl the cowboy way. Thus, sometimes for a non-country fan, this kind of music seems quite a bit boring. However, despite commonality, Cole Swindle provided an engaging country record where it has nice melodies, good hooks, and natural sounding lyrics; no pretentions.

All I can say there is that right kind of emotions in every song that he sung in this album. It can be due to the quality of his voice; neither too low nor high pitched. While it may sound like other country singers like a younger Willy Nelson, still he was able to rise above the comparison by providing not too country songs. In fact, one can even categorized most of the songs in here as middle of the road, if we are to speak of old tradition of labelling different types of music.

The good songs in this record are: Brought To You Beer, Hey Y’All, Ain’t Worth The Whiskey, I Just Want You, and Swayin. With that I rate this record with 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.
