Product Description

Amazon.ca

"Lord, honey, you're a ghost," Minnie Pearl allegedly told Hank Williams III after their first meeting. It's a natural reaction to the skinny singer with the sunken cheekbones and, especially, the pinched nasal vocal--so reminiscent of his famous grandfather's catch-and-moan delivery. Hank III's debut, Risin' Outlaw, made that clear, but now his follow-up carves it on the wall, vocally, melodically, and lyrically. While the third-generation rebel strives mightily to find his own sound by wedding the spooky, old-style country blues and dark themes of his grandfather (Hank Sr.) to the Southern rock and boogie of his dad (Hank Jr.), at times he's guilty of trying too hard to buck Nashville ("Trashville") and re-create the misery of the Williams family tradition. Song after song packs danger and despair between the lines, in drinking to kill the pain, in wallowing in depression, in walking the "low road" of life. That said, III knows how to conjure a gutbucket rhythm ("7 Months and 39 Days") as well as a mournful tearjerker ("5 Shots of Whiskey"), and his touring band keeps things spare, raw, and honkin'. Not everything comes together, but there's no doubting this is a fascinating snapshot of a magical performer struggling to make his own legend. --Alanna Nash

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As His First......... April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Hank III recorded a great first album entitled, "Risin' Outlaw".
After hearing this album, I was somewhat disappointed. It lacks the twang that Hank put into the first solo album. Maybe I'm expecting too much of his grandfather's vocal's; I don't know. I do know that it is not as good as the first. I guess I would have to say that one of the best song's on the album is, "Mississppi Mud".
Hopefully in the future, there will be more of a country based sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I've Bought In Years April 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I like country music, but after buying a few CDs from the artists I see on Country Music TV and being disappointed due to the pop music nature of them, I took a chance and bought the Hank III album "Lovesick Broke and Driftin'".
This is what I've been looking for in country music - not watered down, twangy soft rock, but authentic unashamed country music.
Like we used to say during deployments to Saudi Arabia - "that's good drinkin' music - and it's all that and more. The album has some witty lyrics and just some great songs. It's been in my CD players for a couple of weeks and may end up a permanent resident.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss Out!! Feb. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you are any kind of a fan you need to meet Hank III. He is the only country I will buy. I saw him in Ft. Collins CO. , at the Starlight. You will never beleive it if you see him in concert. Buy this CD. You won't regret it. And you can turn your friends on to him, as some are still in the dark about Hank III and the unbelievable music he makes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now THIS is country music! Jan. 30 2004
By Jimmy
Format:Audio CD
Probably the best country album recorded in many years. Hank 3 is the real deal, and has the vocal chops to prove it. So called "country radio" is afraid to play anything from this disc, so that should tell you how great this album really is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a real country album Dec 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you're like me, you've lost interest in the commercial country music on the radio. I had all but given up on country music a few years ago. I've always loved older country music like Waylon, Willie, George Jones, Hank Sr. and the like. But the newer artists don't have the same spirit or substance.
I picked up III's first album on a recommendation from a friend. And I really liked it. It had been out over a year, but it was brand new to me. I hadn't heard anyone from my generation make good country music. I thought it was a lost art. Well, it's not.
LB&D is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Do yourself a big favor and buy it. I guarantee that if you like old country you will like this album. Who knows, it may be the start of a great musical journey as it was for me.
I am a convert and consider myself a fan. His live shows are even better. So if you see III playing within driving distance, hit the road. His live shows are not to be missed. And if you like heavy stuff, stay for the encore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin' good time Nov. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hank III does sound like his famous grandfather, but at the same time he has a very unique delivery and knows how to tell a story in a song. The songs on this CD range from mellow, old-timey numbers like the title track, "Atlantic City", "One Horse Town" and "5 Shots of Whiskey" to the rollicking good time "Nighttime Ramblin' Man" (which has some incredible instrumental work!). My favorite songs are "Cecil Brown" with its great bass, the angst-filled "Walkin' With Sorrow" and "Trashville" is also a standout as a f-you kind of song. Hank III does it his way and can never be accused of hiding behind his name.
