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 ll wait one or two months for odering this cd.maybe it ll be out in japan import.

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.

finally this record never see the light of day in japan ,so i ve order it in u s a.it s a great southern rock record.the voice of the singer is perfect for southern rock,the musicians are talented,the songs are great and the production is wet dream for all lovers of music.what sound ,very clear.i ve the feeling to be in the studio with the band.but...i think that this album is too wise.this record never take off.we have not the explosion of guitars and the fabulous guitars s duet of the masters doc holliday.this band is very great but they have not the spark of class of doc holliday (the absolute reference of southern rock).nevertheless i imagine that southern s rock fans will be very pleased with solid realise.

I agree, it seems like few songs ever really take off. It's like they're stuck in third gear. I've tried to listen to this a few more times, because I like the IDEA of the band, but I'm finding I just don't like the execution. The musicianship can't be faulted, and the production is great, but the album is held down by lumbering, below-average songs and a very contrived "outlaw" persona. I'm about done trying to like these guys.
