EDITORS’ NOTES

Twenty-one years after their last album together, Radney Foster and Bill Lloyd reunite to make It’s Already Tomorrow a smart and spirited affair. The release is very much in the tradition of the duo’s influential ‘80s-era albums, fusing Beatles melodic ideas with rockabilly and Bakersfield-style country. Sonically, the album is built around Foster and Lloyd’s love for electric guitar twang, lending tracks like “Just This Once,” “Lucky Number” and the title tune plenty of sparkle. Cheap Trick member Tom Petersson stops by to contribute rousing guitar licks to “Hold That Thought.” Foster and Lloyd’s playful lyric wit spices up such teasing numbers as “Can’t Make Love Make Sense” (“Let me help you out of that Freudian slip…”) and “That’s What She Said’ (“I can’t stop my innuendo/that’s one thing she can’t comprendo…”). Amidst all the clever sallies are moments of old-fashioned tenderness, heard in the ‘60s-slanted “Something ‘Bout Forever” and the sweetly-harmonized “When I Finally Let You Go.”
