Crosby Tyler is a new name to me actually but he has released a few albums before this one. He has delivered a record that is full of character, all set to a very typical country instrumentation with pedal steels and guitars dominating. The production is very busy throughout which, although works well in places, can sometimes overpower the lyrics. A stand out track for me is Trucker on the Road which I think is superb. It’s got a great beat that you can’t help but find yourself tapping along to and a chorus that gets stuck in your head on first listen. His gritty vocals add to the edginess of the record. ‘Peace, Love and Beer’ features a great guitar solo and the backing vocals add a new dimension. There’s some good songwriting on this record which would feel at home in a honky tonk. It’s an upbeat album packed full of personality.
