Polly Wogg Reviews Chris Young “Neon” Album
Chris Young is set to release his 3rd album since winning Nashville Star in 2006. “Neon” will be out tomorrow but don’t let his first single, “Tomorrow” fool you. It’s the only sad song, full of regret on the album.
Most songs are fun, uptempo, love songs including, “I Can Take it From There“ about enjoying a night at home with the one you love with ”a couple glasses and a bottle of wine.”
“You” and “Lost” are both upbeat love songs too. “You” is about a guy who thought he knew what love was but realized he “didn’t have a clue.” Most guys don’t have a clue when it comes to love. ”Lost” is one of my favorite songs on the album. Its just a fun song about a man and his woman getting lost “down some old back road, lost in a song of the radio.” I’m sure there are several women who wouldn’t mind getting lost with Chris Young.
Young shows his humorous side and provides a suggestion for anyone forced to conserve water. “Save Water, Drink Beer” can “helps support wildlife.” Its definately a fun song that should be his next single since its the perfect time of year, especially for people living in California or Arizona.
“Old Love Feels New” shows Young’s softer, romantic side. It’s a beautiful love song about advice from a grandfather on true love. So how do you know when you’ve found the love of your life? “When a new love feels old and an old love feels new.” If you think about it for a minute, it makes all the sense in the world.
Advice doesn’t just come from a grandfather, it comes from dad too, with “Flashlight.” He sings “of all the great memories I have, the best ones are those nights, just me and my dad. He’ll never know how much he taught me out in that garage. I sure did learn a lot just holding the flashlight.”
“She’s Got This Thing About Her” is the last song on the album and they say you save the best for last. It’s a goreous love song that just may be heard at a number of weddings in the near future.
If you’re a Chris Young fan, you’ll love his 3rd and what I call his best album to date. If you’re not a Young fan, this new CD “Neon” may change your mind.
