Album Review

Cole Swindell's first hit single, "Chillin' It," sounds a bit like Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" as performed by Luke Bryan, and there's a reason for that: prior to taking a stab at a recording career, Swindell was a songwriter, penning songs for Bryan, FGL, and Scotty McCreery. He's a behind-the-scenes bro, responsible for crafting the sound and feel of contemporary country, and his eponymous 2014 album demonstrates the attributes of his craft. Swindell knows his way with a hook, whether it's coming up with a clever title ("Ain't Worth the Whiskey," "Brought to You by Beer," "Dozen Roses & a Six-Pack") and worthy hooks along with melodies that escalate nicely, and the production by Michael Carter and Jody Stevens is crisp and clean, designed to fit within the contours of modern radio. The one problem with the record is that Swindell sounds like a songwriter, not a singer. He has a guy-next-door voice that's ingratiating. Nevertheless, the album winds up pleasant enough: it's constructed by pros who know how to get tunes on the radio, so it goes down easy.

Customer Reviews

Trash

The song titles, the lyrics, everything. How many more of these kinds of artists and songs do people need before they’re over it?

I swear male country singers are becoming parodies of themselves at this point.

It's come to this...

When I see garbage like this labelled "Country" I honestly feel like I'm living in a cuckoo clock. The persistent and exponential perversion of the genre over just the last ten years has been so breathtaking that a guy like Garth Brooks (who I can't stand either) now seems like Roy Acuff when compared to this. The cloying, homogenous production sheen and faux-populist subject matter sell like hotcakes for some reason. This guy produced another joker so he figures, "Why can't I do it too?" Sure, dude. Knock yourself out. Why not? Nothing matters. Unshaven? Check. Baseball hat with the brim curled? Check. Non-threatening photogenic face? Check. You're all set. Just remember, if you make it to heaven, George Jones is going to vomit on you when you get there.

Beyond Excited

Having worked alongside Luke Bryan, this album is sure to be a huge chart topper for this debut artist. Chillin' It is a fun song to listen to while driving in your car, and his new song Hope You Get Lonely Tonight has a great chorus and melody. He's been working with who is now the biggest name in country music, he will not disappoint.
