Wide Open by Jason Aldean

Jason’s third album is unfailingly listenable—he’s an appealing singer, his band plays with verve and the production is crisp and full.

But contrary to the no-holds-barred suggestion of the title, Wide Open is altogether too careful and cautious. Pretty much every topic you’d expect a modern radio-friendly country album to touch on is here: tributes to country living, dreamers looking to hit the road in search of fame and fortune, gushing odes to the glories of womankind, all in a mix of loud rockers and tender ballads that hums right along easily.

It ain’t bad, but it ain’t runnin’ wide open.
