Desperate Man Album
Released October 5th, Eric Church’s “Desperate Man” album promotes hard-learned lessons, father-son relationships, blue-collar lassitude, and love for himself and others. He manages to stave-off the typical modern country trends using a more traditional country twanged singing voice.
The opening track titled “The Snake” uses biblical references to parody America’s two-party political system. Track two, “Hanging Around” is up-tempo and chalk full of guitar and organ harmonics. Track three, “Heart Like a Wheel” is a love song featuring back up singer Joanna Cotten. Track four titled “Some of It” is the radio track to keep the contemporary country crowd happy. The fifth song on the album, “Monsters,” starts off slow and progresses into a power track. Track six, “Hippie Radio,” is a Rock & Roll tribute to Church’s favourite artists Billy Idol and Warren Zevon. The seventh song, “Higher Wire,” is a soulful track featuring foot stomps instead of drum beats. “Desperate Man,” is the title track of the album is co-written with Ray Wylie Hubbard and does not disappoint. Following the title track, “Solid,” highlights a Dark Side of the Moon intro and continues on with a unique rhythm and massive vocals. Track ten on the album, “Jukebox and a Bar,” has Church singing “We’ve got pin-point GPS, all you need is an address, but her love is the one thing I can’t find.” The final track on the album “Drowning Man” is a drinking song for the middle class. We put the smoke in a stack, put the seed in the ground, while Lady Liberty turns her back and Uncle Sam just turns around,” Church sings.
