Drinkin' Songs & Other Logic

by Clint BlackClint Black


8 New & Used Starting at $1.99


Picking up where he left off with 2004's excellent Spend My Time, Clint Black returns with another impressive self-produced album of finely crafted songs, affecting vocal performances, and some note-perfect support from his seasoned road band. As the title suggests, a few of the tunes are in the venerable tradition of country drinkin' numbers, including the title track and the honky-tonk stomper "Longnecks & Rednecks," but the best cuts are classic Black ruminations on time passing, missed opportunities, lost love, and treasured friendship. Black hits some career highlights on originals such as the eerie, galloping "Code of the West" (in which he laments the passing of a world where the good guys were clearly distinguishable from the bad, and seems to comment on the war on terror and how our "moder- day heroes show 'em how the West was won") and the tearful ballad "Go It Alone," in which Black summons a heartfelt vocal tribute to a fellow traveler with whom he shares a twilight moment of rough 'n' rowdy times fading fast in the modern age. A most genial breakup song, "I Don't Wanna Tell You" is a dance hall gem, its loping rhythm spiced by lively fiddle soloing, sprightly pedal steel lines, and interjections of honk-tonk piano and jazzy electric guitar. Drinkin' to forget is the timeless topic of the catchy, mid-tempo heartbreaker "Thinkin' of You," with Black's carefully measured vocal shadings bolstered by a lonesome twanging guitar. In the throes of a Vince Gill–like artistic resurgence, Clint Black sounds like he's just getting started. Amen to that.
