Electric Rodeo

*** ½

Now this is more like it. On his 2005 debut, Put the O Back in Country, Shooter spent way too much time talking about how modern country sucked and how he was going to set that situation right—and not nearly enough time actually doing it. This time, Shooter puts his music where his mouth is. Electric Rodeo rolls Outlaw country, ‘70s metal and Southern rock into a potent stew with just as much meat as spice. There’s no single track here as indelible as the debut’s “4th of July,” but as a whole Rodeo is a stride in the right direction.
