iTunes Editors’ Notes

Drinkin’ Songs & Other Logic is Clint Black’s “back to basics” album. No orchestras, no rock guitar solos, no adult contemporary ballads (okay, there’s one adult contemporary ballad, “Back Home in Heaven”). Mostly, the album rests on the qualities that have made country music Black’s passion since he was a kid: clever songs and stories with straightforward emotion, delivered with precision and a total lack of pretension. “There’s just too much rock in this country,” sings Black on the twangy “Too Much Rock,” “too many lessons to learn.” The song uses unfertile farmland as a metaphor for the contemporary country music landscape, with Black as a frustrated songwriter who “keeps planting, but nothing ever seems to grow.” A current of resignation and frustration runs underneath the album, from “Code of the West” and “Rainbow in the Rain” to “Go It Alone.” The thing that saves the album from becoming grumpy is Black’s wholehearted conviction in the redemptive power of country songcraft. He always returns to the bar as a metaphor for life, and always delivers his songs with an honesty and sincerity that shows true heart even in the face of frustration.

It reminds me alot of Clint Black's earlier albums.

A country music traditionalist from Texas, Clint Black was one of the first artists to kick-start the mass-market popularity of country in the '90s. Black is also one of the first artists of a generation that was equally inspired by rock-oriented pop — like '70s singer/songwriters and '60s rock & roll — as well as country artists like Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, and George Jones. He offered a shiny, marketable version of traditional country and in the process paved the way for a new...
