American Saturday Night (Bonus Track Version)

iTunes Review

This album touches upon just about everything that Brad Paisley does especially well — comical narratives, beer-soaked party anthems, affirmations of everyday love, and plenty of fret-scorching guitar work. Paisley seems in a mellow mood as he follows an unfolding love affair (“Then”), embraces societal change (“Welcome to the Future”), and celebrates cultural diversity (the title track). Even heartache-tinged tunes like “Everybody’s Here” and “Oh Yeah, You’re Gone” seem more bemused than tormented. As before, he excels at tossing off crowd-rousing upbeat numbers like the frenetic “Catch All the Fish” and the slightly kinky “The Pants,” and he reaffirms his sharp eye for lyric detail and knack for wordplay in “Anything Like Me” (an expectant father’s confession) and “She’s Her Own Woman” (a toast to an independent-minded spouse). American Saturday Night is remarkable in its ability to balance old-fashioned country verities with a progressive outlook while mixing honky-tonk motifs with rock ‘n’ roll flourishes.

Buy the Album

Paisley does it again, but its too early to tell if it's better than 5th Gear (my favorite album). I'm reviewing the songs as I download them from itunes, and I have to say I'm impressed so far. Overall, the album gets 10/10. If you like Paisley's other work, you'll like American Saturday Night. For those unintiated in the Country genre (or never heard or purchased a Paisley album) this is a good one to start with, Brad is a wonderful songwriter and singer. He infuses his songs with humor and killer hooks. Here's my break down: American Saturday Night 10/10: Great song about the "melting pot" that America is. Right in time for the 4th of July! Everybody's Here 10/10: When I first heard the beginning of the chorus, I didn't especially like it. But then he came with the hook "everybody's here but me" really made the song. Welcome to the Future 6/10: Least favorite song on the album. It seems that Brad always has one song on his album that just doesn't quite reach the potential it has. And the song has potential, but I feel that the song, especially the chorus, was just unfinished. And a wierd alien/techno sounds in the background that I found annoying. Could have been better. Then 10/10: I heard criticism of this song because it seems like Paisley fans have heard the song before, no new material. Well, all love songs say the same thing, "I love you." So I kinda laughed when I heard this. No, Brad does well with the song. Unique with a catchy tune. Water 10/10: I laughed when I listened to this song. Classic Paisley. She's Her Own Woman 9/10: Brad uses a bluesy touch with this song. I wouldn't have been suprised to hear Ray Charles or someone sing this song, but it's our Brad. It's a song that will grow on you, trust me. Welcome to the future (Reprise) 6.5/10: Just an extra chorus to Welcome to the future, but with no annoying alien/techno sounds. Although kinda touching because it talks about his wife. Anything like me 10/10: Brad's version of Atkin's "Watching you". But I like this a little better, Brad uses his trademark humor and the song comes out very touching, especially for fathers. You do the math 10/10: Another "Classic Paisley." Funny song about getting a girl. No 10/10: Now one of my favorite songs. Think "Unanswered Prayers." Catch all the fish 10/10: Very funny song about fishing and drinking beer...hmmm, sounds pretty good. Oh Yeah, you're gone 9/10: Good sad song with a great hook. I guess i've come to expect the killer hook from paisley songs. The pants 10/10: You have to hear it to believe it. Only Brad. I hope thats me 10/10: Amazing song, WOW! One of my new favorites. Back to the future 8/10: its a 10 if you like his instrumentals, i think they're ok. Then (single edit) see above...just a different edit. Buy this Album!

Could be BEST yet!

His Time Well Wasted Album was CMA/ACM album of the year and critically acclaimed as it should have been...but American Saturday night just might top it! I got my copy over the weekend before it was released to public and EVERY song is great! Brad has done it again with this album and his string of number one hits will not slow down with the selection of these songs....I suspect "welcome to the future" will be his next big one!!!!! GET THIS RECORD!!!

A more mature Paisley

Brad Paisley has largely built his career on uptempo songs with extended guitar solos and an injection of his tongue-in-cheek humor. You'll find very little of those on this album, which actually makes it one of Brad's best. There are some of those elements in "Water" (one of the best tracks on the album), "Catch All The Fish" (pretty mediocre) and "The Pants" (not bad). Most of the tracks are more mellow and introspective songs about where he is in his life as a father and a husband. American Saturday Night shows perhaps the greatest leap in maturation as an artist from one album to the next in Brad's career. Some of the best tracks include the aforementioned "Water," "Welcome to the Future" and "No".

Biography

Born: October 28, 1972 in Glen Dale, WV

Genre: Country

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Arguably the preeminent male country artist to emerge in the 2000s, Brad Paisley cannily blended the past with the present, paying constant tribute to his forefathers — when he reached the top of the charts, he still found space for Little Jimmy Dickens and George Jones in his videos — but pushing the music forward into the new millennium, expanding its sonic and thematic possibilities. This sense of adventure could be heard on 2009's American Saturday Night, a big-hearted and eclectic...
