|I have to disagree with my buddy Rick on this. This is most definitely NOT for fans of the smooth, sugary, lightweight stuff like Trixter or Danger Danger. Fans of Jackyl, Asphalt Ballet, or heavier bands like Texas Hippie Coalition or Black Stone Cherry might be well served, though. What we have here is something that bypasses "southern rock" completely, and is more a combination of hair-metal and modern country of the bro variety. Most songs except for two in the middle are slower-paced like arena-country, but loud like metal. GUitars are distorted, but not so much to obscure the twang. The singer is capable, but no more, and most choruses use big gang-harmonies to compensate. He spends most of his time reminding us how country he is, and what an outlaw, and how much he likes whiskey--basically trying way too hard for street (or dirt road) cred. "Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, you can kiss my country ass," is one example.

|It's occasionally pleasing to the ear, but on the whole, I found it to be pretty amateurish and stupid. It seems mostly aimed and dumb, drunk people (and I admit to having been both in my life--just not as a career). To be an outlaw, apparently all one has to do is wear boots, drink whiskey, be loud and scream "Hell yeah!" for no particular reason. I'm just flummoxed by such overwhelming badassery. Atempting to ignore the lyrical idiocy (they aren't even clever like Jackyl still sometimes are), the songs are moderately catchy, but all start to blur together before not very long.

|i ve listen the samples on h h.so these samples catch me cause i m a big fan of this kind of southern rock.this band play the same kind of hard southern rock of the masters lynyrd skynyrd.i speak about the "new" lynyrd skynyrd with rickey medlocke.i m agree with doghouse, ok english is not my language but i ve understand that this band plays with all the cliches of the southern rebels.the redneck,the whiskey,the boots;the girls ,hell yeah (like molly hatchet or doc holliday),ect,ect.for me little frenchie the most important is the music.but i understand that american or english people don t like these lyrics a little stupid and very simple.

|I've had this debate a few times with people who prefer current country music. "Well, you like hair-metal, and the lyrics are just as bad." My response is this: yes, that's true, but the difference is, in a lot of hard rock, especially '80's hair-metal, the words were not that important. They were just one ingredient, along with the way they're sung/yelled/screamed, and the surrounding music. With country, the music is pretty interchangeable, and the lyrics are sung to be understood, and are produced upfront in the mix so the words are hard to ignore. The same applies to Outlaws and Moonshine, who, for the record, sing about "country people" and "country ass" and name-check country legends more than they do about rock, which is pretty odd to me. For my ears, Blackberry Smoke are a better band. They've had issues with stupid lyrics, but they're much better songwriters than O&M.
