Album Review

On the cover of his eponymous 2006 debut, Rockie Lynne looks a little like a little brother of Australian country hunk Keith Urban and his blend of contemporary country, melodic pop, and anthemic rock is not all that dissimilar to Urban, either. And like Urban, who can never quite escape his roots in New Zealand and Australia, Lynne is most certainly the product of his homeland, but Rockie is from the American South, so his modern country feels a little more genuinely country than Urban's. Even when Lynne's music seems a little calculated — and there are plenty of times where it does, especially on the ridiculous watered-down Big & Rich of "Super Country Cowboy," the sappy "That's Where Songs Come From," and the well-intentioned we're-all-American clichés of "Red, White and Blue" ("The black man, the white man, and the Sioux/The middle class, the poor, and the well to do/They're red, white, and blue") — it is a calculation that's purely American, and feels genuine. Plus, even if these songs pander a little, they do illustrate that Lynne knows how to craft songs that push the right buttons to get him heard and get him on the charts, and that hits at the heart of what makes Rockie Lynne an appealing debut: behind his good-looks image, Lynne is a solid songwriter and singer, turning out friendly, sturdy modern country, whether it's on lightly rocking tunes like "Big Time in a Small Town," surging country-pop like "Lipstick," or sentimental ballads like "More." He may not push the boundaries of the genre much, but he works well within its confines, hitting the mark more often than not. Not every cut here works, but the ones that do are quite good and add up to a mainstream country debut that's both satisfying and promising.

Customer Reviews

Solid Effort from a Rising Star

This album follows the same approach that say Rascal Flatt's album does. Revolving around heartach and sorrow. The thing is, Rockie Lynne is able to deliver this in almost the same caliber as Rascal Flatts does, which surprised me. I recommend this album to any avid country fan and hope Lynne is able to recieve some praise for this great album.

Rockie Lynne -

Amazing, undeniable talent...electrifying guitar work...if you enjoy great country music...lyrically solid that can bring your emotions to new levels then you need this album by Rockie Lynne...the first time I listened to this album there was not an emotion that I didn't feel...from the uptempo rockin' song "Super Country Cowboy"...the tender ballad "More"...the traditional waltz "Love Me Like Your Gonna Lose Me...that George Strait, Alan Jackson never found and it's good thing...because Rockie really carries this one to the max...the story that really pulls at your heart strings "That's Where Songs Come From" and one of the highlights of the release is the patriotism and tribute to our servicemen and women with "Red, White and Blue"...singles "Lipstick" and "Do We Still" if you ever experience anything in your life...you can relate to these...if you want just plan fun..."Holding Back The Ocean" and "Big Time In A Small Town" hits you where you were as a kid...this release is awesome and Rockie Lynne is the next "NEW BREAKTHROUGH COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR" and you are going to hear about him for a long long time...buy this CD...you won't regret it...!

:)

i like it. his songs are a little different that those that are on the radio right now, but i think he has staying power! my favorites are the only reason, super country cowboy and big time in a small town
