Overview

On his eighth album, Texas frat party darling Pat Green takes a giant step into the big time to detrimental effect. Green may make a lot of his Texas raising and his Austin base -- as well as his record-setting Houston concerts -- but he sounds more like a Nash Vegas hack every day. "Wave on Wave," the title track and single, is proof in the pudding that Green's rootsy, humble, humorous, Robert Earl Keen-derived style has gone the way of a cool breeze in Austin in August. There is little to distinguish not only his sound but his lyrics from those being written by the Nash Vegas Top Ten club. Contrast Green with songwriters such as Troy Campbell, Mary Gautheir, and Billy Joe Shaver and the distinction becomes painful. Green needs to go back to the woodshed and seek out that reckless country music muse that gave him the life he enjoys and beg its forgiveness before churning out anything else.

It's not just a country album... this album has something for everyone. I just can't stop listening to it.

Pat Green's new cd is a bit different from his other releases, but his personality and wit shine through. The music on this cd is fuller and sounds more like what you hear on the radio. While i wish he wasnt quite so mainstream nowadays, if he has to expand this is the way to do it.

This is one of those CD's that if you listen to twice, you will understand the musical genious behind it. I've loved all of Pat's CD's, but this one has the best lyrics and music. Buy this CD, you will love it.

This has got to be the best CD (or close to it) I own. I am a new fan of Pat Green--heard Wave on Wave on the Americana Music Channel on digital cable, and I was hooked just like that. I have had this album for a month and it has permanent status in my 6 CD changer in my car. I was listening to it this morning on the way to work, and I marvel at his talents--wish I had discovered him sooner!!! Alt Country Fan
