Brantley Gilbert may sing about not breaking the bro code but he eagerly breaks the code of bro country. That much was apparent on Just as I Am, the 2014 album that generated the smash hit "Bottoms Up," the single that cemented Gilbert's stardom, but The Devil Don't Sleep — the 2017 sequel to Just as I Am — makes it plain that Gilbert intends to separate himself from his party-hearty brethren. If Gilbert sounds like anybody, it's Jason Aldean — Brantley wrote several of Jason's hits including "Dirt Road Anthem," but the connection goes further than that; "Way Back" even has a skittish electronic beat reminiscent of "Burnin' It Down" — but he manages to spin his grinding minor-key midtempo tunes into a place that doesn't seem morose. Pensive, sure — Gilbert can make a weekend out partying seem like a brooding affair — but he rarely seems dour on the bigger, bolder tunes, all of which sound like they're just on the verge of cutting loose. This reticence toward rocking accentuates how Gilbert really doesn't belong among modern country's bros. He's more of a romantic, specializing in lightly soulful slow-burners that wind up complementing his minor-key anthems. If he sometimes gets stuck in sticky sentiments, particularly when writing love songs, he nevertheless pulls himself free through sheer sturdy craft. At 16 tracks, The Devil Don't Sleep is a little bit long — an impression exacerbated by its slow tempos — but its individual components are strong, which means even if the album doesn't quite have momentum it's nevertheless always satisfying to sample.
Best album yet and bullet in the bonfire kinda has that kick it in the sticks beat
Not the best
I really like the 'rockin'' guitars on 'Rockin' Chairs', the beat of 'Way Back', and I don't know what I like about this album, but I really like 'Baby Be Crazy'. 'Outlaw In Me' just sounds good for some reason. I like the guitars on the title track. I like the beat of 'Tried To Tell Ya', the rockin' beat of 'It's About to Get Dirty'. But there are also songs like 'Bro Code', that aren't good. The banjo just doesn't match the song. 'In My Head' isn't really good either, but not as good. Its just a little bit slow. 'We're Gonna Ride Again' is a really boring song, and this was the most disappointing song on the album because I thought it would be a good, upbeat song, but instead it is a slow boring song. 'The Ones That Like Me' is upbeat, but for some reason, it isn't the best. It sounds like Brantley Gilbert's singing 'behind the music' on the lead single, and the worst song, 'Three Feet of Water'. This was a disappointment also, but this one is also awful. Its slow, but instead of boring, is just plain awful, with the piano and the violin, it doesn't sound good at all. I kinda like the beat on 'Smokin' Gun'.
Once again, Brantley turns on another gear, brings country with a his kind of rock and creates another great one. Everyone check out "in my head" "tried to tell ya" and "bullet in a bonfire" before making up your mind from only hearing the weekend. You're welcome.
