Carrying On

Feeling testosterone-deprived? Not to worry. Montgomery Gentry's Carrying On is a powerful manifesto for those who believe this is a man's, man's, man's world. With unrelenting fury, country's dynamic duo churn out a dozen tracks that assert the virtues of men living hard and on their own terms. This not-so-delicate macho philosophy is underscored by muscular guitar lines, bluesy baritone vocals, and a rock-solid rhythm section working hard to keep it all bolted down. The album-opening hard-country burner "She Couldn't Change Me" tells the tale of a good ol' boy who gets the last laugh when his gal finds out that the hip-hop life she dumps him for lacks the constancy and comfort of his simple country ways. In "My Father's Son," Eddie Montgomery and Troy Lee Gentry move into Mellencamp-style rock in celebrating the rewards of a nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic handed down by three generations of males in the family. Those who live hard also fall hard: "Cold One Comin' On," with echoes of the Allman Brothers in its wailing twin guitars, passes for a reflective moment in its contemplation of drinking to salve the wound left by a woman who walked out on the man who done her wrong. Primal and potent, Carrying On is country for carnivores.
