Our Kind of Country

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Asserting the timeless allure of the shuffle beat in a vibrant homage to '50s country music, Jim & Jesse McReynolds' Our Kind of Country packs more heart and soul into one cut than most contemporary albums do in a dozen or more. Backed by the solid, underappreciated pros who comprise the Opry Stage Band, the brothers advance a singular style of honky-tonk that bleeds into bluegrass thanks to dizzying instrumental solos and heartfelt harmonizing. Most of the songs come from the pens of giants such as Buck Owens "Under Your Spell Again", Harlan Howard "Foolin' Around", Mel Tillis "Heart over Mind", and Roger Miller "Invitation to the Blues", but Jesse takes his ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Asserting the timeless allure of the shuffle beat in a vibrant homage to '50s country music, Jim & Jesse McReynolds' Our Kind of Country packs more heart and soul into one cut than most contemporary albums do in a dozen or more. Backed by the solid, underappreciated pros who comprise the Opry Stage Band, the brothers advance a singular style of honky-tonk that bleeds into bluegrass thanks to dizzying instrumental solos and heartfelt harmonizing. Most of the songs come from the pens of giants such as Buck Owens "Under Your Spell Again", Harlan Howard "Foolin' Around", Mel Tillis "Heart over Mind", and Roger Miller "Invitation to the Blues", but Jesse takes his rightful place in that pantheon with two beautiful numbers, "The Voice of My Darling" sung with piercing conviction by his grandson, Luke McKnight, and a touching vow of devotion in the ballad "The End of My Rainbow." Honest and true, Our Kind of Country is one of the best albums of the year.
All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Jim & Jesse McReynolds have always had their own take on the bluegrass tradition. Like their contemporaries the Osborne Brothers, they've always pushed the envelope of the mainstream while never completely losing their aura of old-time traditionalism. This album will change all that. Teaming up with the stage band from the Grand Ole Opry, the McReynolds brothers deliver a program of classic honky tonk country music, complete with steel guitar and Telecaster accompaniment. Interestingly, the band uses an upright instead of an electric bass -- an ironic twist, given that Jim & Jesse use an electric instrument in their bluegrass ensemble. The songs are mostly well selected -- there are a couple of great tunes from the Buck Owens catalog "Foolin' Around," "Til These Dreams Come True", a Mel Tillis chestnut "Heart Over Mind", and others from Roger Miller and Don Gibson, not to mention a few McReynolds originals played in that 1950s country-shuffle style. There's only one misstep the inexcusably smarmy "Lovin' Machine"; for the most part, this is a completely charming album that may leave hardcore bluegrass fans cold but will appeal greatly to fans of pre-'70s country.
