EDITORS’ NOTES

Texas’ Josh Abbott Band might be the most eclectic country-pop crew to come along since Zac Brown hit the scene, and their fifth album, Until My Voice Goes Out, weaves all kinds of influences into its modern country tapestry. "Heartbeatin'" boasts a rootsy blend of bluegrass and soul, and "Texas Women, Tennessee Whiskey" dips into some brassy R&B flavors. Meanwhile, when they're not getting good 'n' greasy, Josh Abbott and friends deliver touching, folky ballads like "Girl Down in Texas" and "I'm Your Only Flaw."

Taking Risks

When it comes to Country Music, I am a huge critic. Josh Abbott Band took a big risk by pushing the envelope on their sound. I still felt that on a majority of the songs you still had the Josh Abbott sound. I probably would've eased up on the symphony orchestra type stuff on some of the tracks. However, being a musician, you have to learn to take chances to see what works and what doesn't.

Front Row Seat was definitely a better album, but Until My Voice Goes Out had me tuned in to really good lyrics which is what you want to resonante with.

I wouldn't say this is a "Mainstream Nashville" start, because I truly believe the band likes to experiment, but stay true to who they are. This album gets four stars from me.

Wreck 'em, Josh!

An Ode to His Father

If you like music at its core you will enjoy this album. Josh really stepped out of the norm for this album. You will get your classic Abbott Texas Country song, but this album seems so much more evolved. The strings, and horns show much he has gotten into music as far as a composing level. Some of the tracks are about love, and the others are haunting. In Ain't My Daddy's Town, he runs through his emotions as his father is being laid to rest, and in it goes through all his thoughts/ emotions of what it's like to lose someone dear to you. This whole album has showed how much he has evolved and matured. All I can say is your father would be proud of you Josh. Bravo!

That's my boy

The people who think Josh "sold out" to Nashville are so ignorant. He works so hard to stay true and as a friend who's been there since college, he nailed this one! Best yet buddy!!
