The Jealous Kind

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Chris Knight's third album, The Jealous Kind, is of a piece with his first two, Chris Knight and A Pretty Good Guy. Once again, Knight sings in a throaty tenor with a Texas twang, a voice that will remind many listeners of Steve Earle. Doubling that resemblance are Knight's songs, which run to midtempo country-folk-rock arrangements of tunes with lyrics about a variety of ne'er-do-well lowlifes who struggle with controlling their drinking, holding onto their jobs, getting back their girlfriends, and committing petty and sometimes not so petty crimes. A typical effort is "The Border," co-written with Christie Sutherland, in which a couple, Jim and Loretta, hook up in a ...

Chris Knight's third album, The Jealous Kind, is of a piece with his first two, Chris Knight and A Pretty Good Guy. Once again, Knight sings in a throaty tenor with a Texas twang, a voice that will remind many listeners of Steve Earle. Doubling that resemblance are Knight's songs, which run to midtempo country-folk-rock arrangements of tunes with lyrics about a variety of ne'er-do-well lowlifes who struggle with controlling their drinking, holding onto their jobs, getting back their girlfriends, and committing petty and sometimes not so petty crimes. A typical effort is "The Border," co-written with Christie Sutherland, in which a couple, Jim and Loretta, hook up in a dive in Brownsville, party there and in Mexico, and, when their money runs out, rob a liquor store. "Carla Came Home" tells the story of a father's murderous revenge against a son-in-law who abused his daughter, while "Long Black Highway," performed as an acoustic dirge, is a ghost story about two young men who party through the Midwest and, when their money runs out, rob a gas station. Knight occasionally turns more thoughtful, as on "A Train Not Running" and "Broken Plow," which deal with rural economic desperation, and "Hello Old Man," a meditation by a son on his father. But his focus always remains on scruffy, down-and-out types, getting in trouble due to a combination of circumstances and their own weaknesses. "We all do some things we come to regret," he sings in "Staying Up All Night Long," "We get forgiven but we can't forget." It's those "things" that interest Knight most as a songwriter. The CD features a music video of "Oil Patch Town" from A Pretty Good Guy, accessible via computer.

    Raw and Rockin country must have

    Chris Knight’s third album, “The Jealous Kind” is a country – rocking album filled with passionate and gut-wrenching stories of desperate and downtrodden southern folks. Chris Knight’s throaty soulful voice is infectious. His songwriting draws you in with songs like “Carla came Home” about a father’s murderous revenge on his daughters’ abusive husband. “Long Black Highway” is a raw and soulful acoustic dirge about two young men who party their way throughout the Midwest and end up robbing a gas station when they run out of money. The stories Knight tells are so heartfelt and vivid each one could be it’s own book or script . You can feel the pain and desperation of each of these characters in Knight’s voice. With the combination of Knight’s incredible storytelling and twang-filled rocking melodies he has created yet another amazing and classic country album with “The Jealous Kind”.
