Dangerous Man

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Any artist would find hard to follow up a double-platinum album and an instant-classic hit single, but on the muscular Dangerous Man, Trace Adkins threatens to leave Songs About Me and the infectious "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" in the dust. From the churning, snarling attack of the album-opening title track to the rootsy guitar-and-mandolin commentary infusing the closing ballad, "Words Get In the Way," Adkins puts on a good show of affecting country crooning and macho assertiveness. He has some down 'n' dirty "Badonkadonk"-type fun on the suggestive rocker "Ladies Love Country Boys," gets a deep Big & Rich-style groove going on the funked-up and gritty "Southern ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Any artist would find hard to follow up a double-platinum album and an instant-classic hit single, but on the muscular Dangerous Man, Trace Adkins threatens to leave Songs About Me and the infectious "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" in the dust. From the churning, snarling attack of the album-opening title track to the rootsy guitar-and-mandolin commentary infusing the closing ballad, "Words Get In the Way," Adkins puts on a good show of affecting country crooning and macho assertiveness. He has some down 'n' dirty "Badonkadonk"-type fun on the suggestive rocker "Ladies Love Country Boys," gets a deep Big & Rich-style groove going on the funked-up and gritty "Southern Hallelujah," serves up some ferocious emoting in front of guitarist Pat Buchanan's slice 'n' dice interjections on the soaring, anthemic "Ride," and displays a warm, cuddly side in the slow-grinding, R&B-inflected love ditty "Ain't No Woman like You." And for good measure, he revisits, on a bonus track, that ol' "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," in a revved-up mix done for the music video -- a good thing just got better.
All Music Guide
Over the course of seven albums, Trace Adkins mined a musical territory between new traditionalism and contemporary commercial country. 2006's Dangerous Man finds him leaning toward the latter part of that equation, with no loss of his down-home, 10-gallon bite. The album's lead-off single, "Swing," is a case in point. Fueled by boogie rock electric guitar, a thumping backbeat, and singalong choruses, the tune is glossy and anthemic, owing more to Lynyrd Skynyrd than to Hank Williams. When not flexing his rock muscles, Adkins shows his skill with emotive, midtempo balladry ("Words Get in the Way") designed to fit seamlessly on MTV playlists. But where Adkins' music leaves tradition behind for the mainstream, its country heart beats in the right place: baseball, patriotism, and good-ol'-boy pastimes like drinking, driving, and loving are the themes on hand. Adkins also has a way with an infectious hook, and he carries these beautifully with his resonant baritone. Fans of Adkins, and of contemporary country in general, won't be disappointed with Dangerous Man.
