iTunes Review

Anyone who has ever spent time in Texas knows that living there demands a lot of driving. Randy Rogers Band’s 2010 album Burning the Day is so saturated in Texan atmosphere that opening with a song about driving makes perfect sense. “Interstate” chimes with red-dirt twang, uplifting melodies, and Rogers’ weathered and whiskey-pickled inflections. “Too Late for Goodbye” is a standout that’s sure to lure anyone attracted to Ryan Adams’ penchant for lovelorn narratives and Drive-By Truckers’ nitty-gritty country-rock. Similarly, the rootsy “Missing You Is More Than I Can Do” resonates richly with traditional instrumentation — the fiddles and pedal steel sound totally timeless. By the woeful ballad “Just Don’t Tell Me the Truth,” it’s evident that Rogers is well versed in heartbreak (touring to play over 200 shows a year takes its toll on romantic relationships), and the more upbeat “I Met Lonely Tonight” plays like its sequel as his dire loneliness provides a bittersweet contrast to the tune’s sparkling chorus.

Customer Reviews

Texas music at its finest

I couldn't wait for RRB's new album to drop - and it was worth the wait. Every song has their trademark Texas music sound, along with Randy's growl, tight song writing, and Brady Black's fiddle. Best song is "Missing You is More than I can I Do". I love it that Randy and the gang have stayed true to their own sound, despite being signed by a big label. These guys are true artists - and this album is the greatest manifestation yet of that.

Too much Nashville sound...Not RRB sound.

I want to congratulate RRB on their success, however, this isn't their best album. The only two songs that have "RRB SOUND" is "Interstate" and "Too Late For Goodbye". This is a great Nashville album, not Texas. Someone told me that he added in the steel guitar and all the other Nashville additive sound to get mainstream play and I told him right there showed what he was going for. "Roller Coaster", "Just A Matter of Time", and "Randy Rogers Band" albums all set the tone of his music, but after listening to this one I was a little upset as a music fan. I love his lyrics because he writes amazing music. Last time I checked though, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings told Nashville to shove it, because they play their own music the way they want. Cross Canadian Ragweed has had the success without mainstream play because it's about staying true to your roots and remembering who you are. I'm still a fan, but I miss the old sound they had, it hit me at the heart and this album just doesn't do it. As long as he doesn't go the Pat Green route I think I'll be fine. This album gets three stars from me, where his other ones were five.

Awesome CD

Another awesome cd from RRB. Steal You Away and Too Late For Goodbye are my Favorite two songs on the album but the whole cd is well worth the money. This whole cd is going on the IPOD just like all of their other cd's. It will get played over and over early in the morning on the way to my favorite hunting spot.
