Some People Change

by Montgomery Gentry

CD

Overview

Carnivores, rejoice! Those burly boys Montgomery Gentry are back for a fifth album of meat-and-potatoes country rock. Drums thunder, guitars scream and wail, background choruses shout and shout some more, and Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry declaim their tales about hard partying, fondly remembered old times, and working hard for every material reward. They even get into some sensitive areas with a booming power ballad, "Lucky Man," that celebrates the simple pleasures of "supper in the oven, and a good woman's lovin'." Evincing a populist bent in the Troy Gentry co-write, "Takes All Kinds," the fellows diss conformity and heap praise on the varieties of characters who make the world go 'round, in a muscular, churning tune that soars on the strength of snarling, coiling guitar lines, a rich burst of organ fills and urgent, insistent harmonizing throughout. The monster party-hearty outing here is "Hey Country," a jittery, guitar-heavy and consciously anthemic celebration of "shotguns, halter tops, six-packs, a Firebird" -- the eternal verities, in other words, and the fellas get into some country rapping in the verses before leading the chorus in boozy shouts. In short, the sum of human experience is condensed into the aforementioned songs as well as irresistible ditties such as the roiling, bluesy "A Man's Job," a bitter screed blistering a woman who left her older, responsible paramour for a lazy stud muffin of tender years; and a driving, spitfire rocker about paying dues, "Free Ride In the Fast Lane." Some People Change, but not these two.

I've already been a big fan of theirs, but this album has made me even more so. I recently saw them in concert, which was the first time I heard the ballad "Clouds". Even if you haven't lost someone close to you, the cracking of Eddie's voice as he sings it is enough to bring a tear to anyone's eyes. I prefer their more upbeat songs, which they do great at on this album. Overall, awesome job.
