Luke Bryan ‘Kill The Lights’ – Album Review

Luke-Bryan-Kill-the-Lights

Right, let’s get this bit out the way first: ‘Kill The Lights’ is a better album than ‘Crash My Party’.

That’s not of course to say that there aren’t some polarizing, bro-country tracks in here, because there are; but there are enough more substantial offerings to balance what is an album of predominantly love songs, whether that manifests itself in adoration, lust, or heartbreak.

This week Luke Bryan takes on more dominance than he has done in some time, as ‘Kick The Dust Up’ retains its hold at #1 on Hot Country Songs and moves up to the top spot on Country Airplay and Country Digital Songs, only bested by Sam Hunt’s ‘Take Your Time’ at #1 on Country Streaming Songs. Leading Top Country Albums is Alan Jackson with ‘Angels & Alcohol’, making things right after he just missed out last week (blame Jason Isbell for that), while Ashley Monroe’s ‘The Blade’ comes in at #2 and Aussie singer Kasey Chambers debuts at #49 with ‘Bittersweet’. New records from Blake Shelton (‘Gonna’) and Jason Aldean (‘Gonna Know We Were Here’) also make their presence known this week. Read on for more!

I Don’t Think Waylon Done It This Way

By now, everyone has heard about the controversy over Luke Bryan and his ridiculous, disrespectful comments on Outlaw Country. Although, is it a real controversy if it doesn’t have a witty name (*Cough Cough* SaladGate)? How about #BryanGate or #CocaineGate or more correctly, #IdiotGate? Anyway, for those who live under a rock, here’s a summary of what went down. Luke Bryan made several comments on Outlaw Country and the artists associated with it in an interview with HITS, and the interview went as follows:

Luke Bryan ‘Kick The Dust Up’ – Single Review

LB KUTD 2015 Digital Single CoverF.indd

Like some strange combination of the clunky, childish lyrics I used to write around the age of eleven, and Farce The Music’s famed parody bro-country songs, Luke Bryan’s new single ‘Kick The Dust Up’ manages to remind us that not all men come out of puberty completely intact. In small pockets of American culture there are “men” (we’ll call them that for the sake of this review, but it needs expanding) who appear like devolved versions of their fellow superior beings, a simple, cyclical consumer of beer, female genitals and large vehicles that aim to make up for their lack of sexual experience (or girth). Once a purveyor of more thoughtful output designed for the ordinary human being, Luke Bryan has fallen into the depths of what we may consider to be a “bro”, a form of homo sapien that is less evolved than the common ape. Expect territory marking, second class treatment of the female species, hedonism and a kind of tribal communication whose usage is limited to this particular type of human.
