Let's Be Us Again

Let's Be Us Again

by Lonestar

Overview

In its love songs and thoughtful reminiscences of days gone by, Lonestar's Let's Be Us Again betrays a reflective, nostalgic streak a bit wider than has been evident on the group's previous albums. "County Fair" opens the disc on a stomping note, with fiery fiddle work and stinging guitar lines punctuating the band's tight, soaring harmonies celebrating the virtues of small-town life. The what-was-and-what-is yin-yang fuels a propulsive country-rock take on class reunions, "Class Reunion (That Used to Be Us"), whereas a certain urgency attends the plaintively rendered parental advice on child rearing in the country-pop ballad "Let Them Be Little." Alabama's Randy Owen does a guest shot on "From There to Here," a pounding litany citing examples of undaunted optimism down through the years. Sometimes the guys cut loose with nothing more in mind than partying hard and long, as on the rocking salute to weekend hedonism "T.G.I.F.," and at other points they simply offer up a heartfelt paean to a good woman's love, as in the soaring, tender-hearted "Now." It's all Lonestar being Lonestar again, and that should translate into another long-term winner for the veteran hitmakers.
