Part II

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
All the elements that made Brad Paisley's 1999 debut, Who Needs Pictures, so refreshing and encouraging are in place on Part II. That is to say, the band is tight and honky-tonk/dance hall rooted; the songs offer a nice balance of good-humored barn-burners and shuffles, complemented by topical ballads and engaging love songs; and Paisley's husky voice is as warm and engaging as his guitar playing is fiery and flawless. Paisley pokes some good-natured fun at men's skewed priorities in the mock-tearjerker "I'm Gonna Miss Her," in which the guy's girl makes the mistake of demanding he choose between her and fishing. On a thoughtful note, there's the stirring "Two People ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
All the elements that made Brad Paisley's 1999 debut, Who Needs Pictures, so refreshing and encouraging are in place on Part II. That is to say, the band is tight and honky-tonk/dance hall rooted; the songs offer a nice balance of good-humored barn-burners and shuffles, complemented by topical ballads and engaging love songs; and Paisley's husky voice is as warm and engaging as his guitar playing is fiery and flawless. Paisley pokes some good-natured fun at men's skewed priorities in the mock-tearjerker "I'm Gonna Miss Her," in which the guy's girl makes the mistake of demanding he choose between her and fishing. On a thoughtful note, there's the stirring "Two People Fell in Love," which traces a family's lineage -- from heroes to horrors -- back to its progenitors' love affair. A somber cover song, "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive," honors Merle Travis's classic "Dark as a Dungeon" in its evocation of the futility and frustration of coal miners' dead-end lives. The album closes on a powerful note, with Paisley's live, solo acoustic rendition of the gospel standard "The Old Rugged Cross," recorded live at the Grand Ole Opry. It's a nice touch, and like everything else on Part II, it feels right.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Like many sophomore efforts called Part II, Brad Paisley's second album is indeed a continuation of the debut, but the singer/songwriter and guitarist hardly sounds like he's repeating himself the second time around. Instead, it sounds as if he's digging in deeper as both a writer and performer, which for the most part means that he's digging deeper into classic country, specifically the Bakersfield and honky tonk of the '60s and '70s. Ironically, one of the exceptions to the rule is the title track, a slow heartbreak ballad that sounds crafted with the radio in mind (even more ironically, it didn't turn into a hit), but apart from this song and a couple other left turns, like the too bombastic power ballad "I Wish You'd Stay," Paisley manages to make Part II sound simultaneously classic and contemporary. This is as true on lean, lively, guitar-heavy tunes like "Two Feet of Topsoil" and the rampaging instrumental "Munster Rag" as it is on the lazy, jazzy "You Have That Effect on Me," the haunting, folky "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive," and his spare reading of the gospel standard "The Old Rugged Cross." And it's not just that Paisley is faithful to the sound and feel of classic country; he's a sucker for classic country corn, which surfaces as humor -- "All You Really Need Is Love," where all the hidden costs of a wedding are ticked off, or "I'm Gonna Miss Her," where he's enjoying a day fishing so his old girlfriend is slipping his mind -- and sentiment, as on the unapologetically sappy "Too Country," where George Jones, Buck Owens, and Bill Anderson are all hauled out to celebrate country clichés. It's this embrace of Nashville schtick that separates Paisley from other neo-traditionalists -- he values the music and he values the pageantry in equal measure, and he's excellent at both, as this thoroughly entertaining second album proves.

    It's Country. Not Bee Bop

    This cd is incredible. Every song except for the instrumental could be released as a single to radio. He will stay close to his country soul as long as he's doing music. Refreshing and entertaining. Country music still thrives in the midst of all the Bee Bop, throw away, bubble gum ''country'' that is played now.

    Keeping with Brad Paisley Tradition

    This CD is incredible!! His talent to play the guitar, write funny songs, and keep a traditional sound is exceptional. Every song is great, except maybe ''Too Country'' with G. Jones, Buck Owens, and Bill Anderson- but it stays with traditional country. If you liked ''Who Needs Pictures'', you will LOVE ''Part II''

    Better than Who Needs Pictures!!

    I got this cd in the mail today and I am just blown away! It is even better than Who Needs Pictures(which I never thought would be possible)! Every song is so great that I can't decide which is my favorite. If you like Brad, you have to RUN out and buy this one!!
