Album Review

Robbie Fulks is cleverly twisted, deliciously irreverent, and one of the best of the new country singer/songwriters. Musically, Country Love Songs supplies plenty of hardcore, bottle-tippin', honky tonk country, with a '50s production that sounds like it's supposed to be there. Fulks writes and sings country music that bears little or no resemblance to what dominates the airwaves; rather, his material harks back to an era when humor and dark subject matter shared the same page of a writer's composition book. Paying homage to the classic Bakersfield sound, with former Buckeroo Tom Brumley shining on pedal steel, Fulks delivers "The Buck Starts Here," which just might be the best country song since "He Stopped Loving Her Today." Lyrically, Fulks can travel some pretty spooky highways, as in the descriptive ballad "Barely Human," a drinking song that's as tortured as they get, with the song's character "barely human from twilight till dawn." Other strong tracks include the saga of an aging movie starlet who loses it in "She Took a Lot of Pills (And Died)" — which first appeared on the second volume of the label's Insurgent Country compilations — and the swingin' "Every Kind of Music But Country."

Real Country sound

This is what country is about soul,pain,love And sounds like county, not Pop Country.


Robbie's as good as it gets. Even better live if you get the chance. The best combo of country, rock-a-billy and bluegrass. An original that harks back to the time when musicians were REAL.

It's so jolly

The song "she took a lot of pills and died" is just so doggone jolly and happy that if I OD on pills and die I want it played at my funeral. Hopefully people will be happy and joyful and no longer sad because that song is awesome!

Singer/songwriter Robbie Fulks was one of the more heralded talents in the alternative country movement, displaying an offbeat, sometimes dark sense of humor in many of his best moments. As time passed, he moved away from the country twang of his early work and into a crunchier roots rock hybrid. Fulks divided his childhood between Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina, and received his schooling at Columbia University. He moved to Chicago in 1983 and first served as vocalist and guitarist in...
