Country Is My Rock

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Country Is My Rock -- as in country is Trent Tomlinson's rock & roll, and that may be true since he certainly rocks country harder than any young country buck outside of such mavericks as Hank Williams III, who would rather kick up a storm with his metal band anyway. Tomlinson isn't that crazed -- country may be his rock & roll, but it's also his rock as in the foundation of his music, and no matter how he cranks up the overdrive on the amps and boogies, he's still a country songwriter at heart, and a damn good one at that.

Sometime his rock & roll act comes across as schtick, but like Hank Jr. -- or Kid Rock for that matter -- that sense of camp only enhances his persona, since he also has a knack for lean, hard, and melodic songs. Not everything here clicks -- sometimes he gets a little silly (which is preferable to getting a little sappy), and sometimes his voice is just a shade too thin -- but there are plenty of good, piledriving country-rockers and a handful of good barroom ballads, all performed with vigor and good humor, which makes this an excellent debut.

    Better than expected...

    Trent's breakout song "Drunker than Me" just caught my ear - I love the song. Not only because the lyrics are so true but also because of the beat. I tried downloading the song - to no avail - so I thought I'd go buy the CD. I was a little leery when I picked up the CD, because of his 'bad boy' appearance on the cover. It was so un-country. But the song was on it and I wanted it - so there ya go. Well I haven't stopped listening to the CD yet. It has a great mix of upbeat fun songs right down to your 'typical' loved and lost country songs. For a first out record Trent nailed it right on the head! His song "Hey Batter Batter" is great - too funny! I recommnend this to anyone who loves country music you won't be disappointed! I guess it's true what they say... You can't judge a book (or in this case a CD) by it's cover!
