Perfection!! If you tired of the country trend of empty songs about parties, backroads, and solo cups get this album now.
In the interest of full disclosure, I will admit I am a huge Vince fan and doubt he would record anything I just didn't like. I've had this album now for about 6 hours and haven't picked a favorite, which is hard to do since all the songs are very well written, played and, of course, sung.
It is a great follow up to his last endeavor "These Days." These songs talk of death, life, hope and love, and a motel with "color tv and the kids eat free" [The Old Lucky Diamond Motel]. This album is somehow quintessential Vince and at the same time it is different than some of his previous work. It is, unsure how to explain it, smoother...sophisticated...damn good.
In the title song, "Guitar Slinger", he sings "If ya'll just show up and cheer for me, I swear I'll play for free". Well, I am definitely cheering.
