Lucky Ones
Album Review
Wave On Wave was Pat Green in transition. Lucky Ones is Pat Green at his best. Pat has matured into the next John Mellencamp, Guy Clark, and Willie Nelson combined. This album demonstrates great writing and musical talent. Yeah sure I miss the old Pat who sung about bars and Texas. But the new Pat still sings from the heart and you canít deny that he hasnít gone back to his Texas roots. Most of the songs are written or co-written with other great Texas artist. Baby Doll, Lucky Ones (Radney Foster Cover), My Little Heaven, Donít Break My Heart Again, College (great song with Brad Paisley), Temporary Angel, One Thing are all greatsongs. My only complaint is that I enjoy the Pat Green Band and I feel that a recording should have the same sound as a live act. The only thing that could make his next album better is by teaming up with Lloyd Maines again. Those two were great together. See you in Steamboat. P.S. cute picture of Pat Greens little baby, you canít deny the resemblance.

Album Review
I have listened to the new album several times all the way through on CMT.com, and I still don't know what to make of it. I will by the record, but much like "wave on wave" I probably won't listen to it 3 months from now. The opening track "Baby doll," was written with Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20, and it sounds like it. Its not about things that I care about, and it sounds like a bad cliched pop song with a little fiddle behind it. The album also uses far too much steel guitar, which screams Nashville production, which is troubling for a man who has traveled with the same band without a steel player, for years, and claims they are growing together. My biggest problem of all comes with the cover of "One Thing." I hope it works out for a hit for Pat, but it lacks the emotion that Jack Ingram puts into his music, which makes Jack's work great. It reminds me a little of Pat's uninspired attempt to cover Townes Van Zandt's "Snowin' on Raton," on his "George's Bar" Album. Stripping "One Thing," of emotion is worse here because the vocals are far from urgent, and the music behind it is as well. Overproduction has always been the biggest Texas complaint of the Nashville establishment (see Willie) and I am afraid Pat is falling victim to this formula.

I'm sorry, but the songs on this album sound so generric. The only one I really liked was One Thing, which he didn't even write. I think that the people who really enjoyed the pre-Three Days Pat won't like this album much. I haven't completely written him off yet, but, while this one is better than Wave on Wave, it's still sub-par for him as far as I'm concerned.

Just listened to the album. Sounds like Pat found his roots again. I think he will gain more respect and fans with this new album. It blows Wave on Wave out of the water. Later

You can hear the whole record on CMT.com. Great songs. My favorite is "My Little Heaven." Jack Ingram's "One Things" is covered on the album (great version). "Sweet Revenge" is great song and sounds cool because Pat does his harmony backup (you have to hear)... Overall it's better than Three Days and sounds more like his old stuff. And he's not a sell out (there is no such thing like Ingram says).

alright lets all say it together...wave on wave sucked big b*lls. But its not fair to write off pat all together. From what im hearing this is gonna be a better album than 3days and hes also cowriting with several other texas artists...who knows maybe this is the album that will convert all "country" to texas country- Gig em

pat is in a no-win situation with this CD. If he doesn't mention Texas enough most ot the Texas fan base scream. If he reverts back to his beer and taco days he loses many of his serious listeners he gained after 'Wave on Wave'. Catch 22. Nomatter, Im sure the haters will be on here regardless of what the new CD is like.

I've have been reading some of his new songs on country tabs.com and it acctually looks like he is goin back to his roots..this new album should blow wave on wave out of the water..most of the songs being love songs but there are quite a few that revert back to good ol' pat and texas music
