Chris LeDoux, the richly talented Contemporary Country artist has released him latest album titled After The Storm and Wow! It’s really a good one.
I wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just cannot force myself to get through. Not at all the case with After The Storm. Every track is enjoyable and was beautiful easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
The nice thing about a CD like this is when the talent is this rich even if Contemporary Country isn’t your most prized style you still cannot help but appreciate the greatness of the artist.
After The Storm is a first rate CD, delivering a little something for everyone. I give it two thumbs up. It’s quite simply great listening. A must buy if you’re even mildly into Contemporary Country music.
During times when this entire album is really very good any of my favorites are track 1 – Some Things Never Change, track 3 – Don’t Make You Want To Dance, and track 5 – I Don’t Want To Mention Any Names
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 8 – Scatter The Ashes. Wow!
