This World We Live In

** ½

One of Nashville’s finest and most reliable singer/songwriters, Radney is pretty much incapable of making a bad album—but not a bland one, as This World We Live In proves. The guy who conjured such vivid lyrical pictures in songs like the Keith Urban hit “Raining on Sunday” now settles for predictable turns of phrase like You’re never gonna fly if you’re afraid to fall. World itself only flies on the clutch of songs about the dizzy, fizzy thrill of new romance, including “Big Idea,” “Sweet and Wild” and the opening “Drunk on Love.”
