Title - 'The Trouble With Humans' (Lone Star Records)
Artist - Chip Taylor
I thought Chip and Carrie's last album, Let's Leave This Town, was one of the best things I've heard in a long time, so I had very high expectations on this follow-up. It is different - so it may take a while to get used to - but in the end it is just as great as their debut. The sound is softer and more varied this time around and there are more great ballads, like the beautiful "Memphis, Texas" or the tender "We Come Up Shining". On the rowdy side we have "All The Rain" and "Laredo" which are fine, but even better live. My favorite songs on this record, however, are the more laid-back, mid-tempo songs, like the opener "Don't Speak In English", the outstanding hard country song "Dirty Little Texas Story" and the smooth "Curves and Things".
