Album Review

Angels & Outlaws continues and amplifies the more reflective mood of Aaron Watson's previous album, San Angelo, as opposed to the honky tonk swing of his first several releases. The title is indicative, because Watson's Christian themes have grown to command an ever larger place in his music, and he spends considerably more time singing about the former than the latter here. Even the threatening hook of album opener "Tulsa" ("Don't let the sun go down on you in Tulsa") is delivered not to a romantic rival, but to someone Watson feels is shirking his God-given duties as a husband and father. Although the album is produced, as always, by Asleep at the Wheel's Ray Benson, the honky tonk and Western swing vibe of earlier albums like The Honky Tonk Kid and Shutupanddance is similarly dialed back here in favor of midtempo country-pop like "Whiskey on the Fire." Big bonus points for getting the cantankerous outlaw country legend Billy Joe Shaver to record a verse of Philippians, though.

Watson began writing and singing his own songs...
