Wrong! Sorry Vince, I don't like
John Sines Jr.'s music, I LOVE it! This young man is pure country, whether he's rockin',
honky tonkin' or balladeering, he's got what it takes to deliver to goods.
The "goods" come in the
form of an original 12 song CD, self titled, "John Sines Jr.". All 12 songs are
written or co-written by John and delivers something for everyone, starting with the toe
tappin', "I'll Keep Lovin' This One". He then goes into "Georgia
Rain", another uptempo love song where "nothin' looks better than that woman of
mine when she stands in the Georgia rain". From there we rollick into the fun
2-steppin', "She Could Bring a Freight Train to a Halt" then on to "The
Horse That They Rode In On" about a woman who catches her man and the woman he's
cheatin' with. "Heartache Hardheaded" is another love lost in an uptempo beat
and let's not forget, the Tex-Mex blend of "Myria".
The ballads are ones that will
tear at your heartstrings such as "All She Left Me (Was Alone)", "I
Should've Told Ellen", "Little Girl Blue On The Run" (featured on CAF),
"Faded Blue Dreams", and "If Those Old Walls Could Talk". You
can hear John's devotion to his family in his self penned song, "Here Today, Grown
Tomorrow" which starts out, "we were young and broke when we brought the baby
home, you couldn't tell it from the smile on my face". As the song progresses, he
emphasizes, "children are the greatest gift that heaven can send down, you never know
how much you miss one, until they're not around." This song is so special in
how John reminds us that we should always take pleasure in our children, as they're
"Here Today, Grown Tomorrow".
This album has it all! All
you could want in great writing, a great band and production, and great vocals from John
Sines Jr., who wears each song in his heart and delivers it from the very core of his
soul. Bottom line.... I'll Keep on Loving this One!
