For years, Chris Young's fan's have raved about the incredible energy of his concerts. Now, with the highly-anticipated September 17 release of A.M., the goldselling artist is poised to present a studio album that similarly reflects the power, fun, and high octane of his live shows. Chris Young is a smart guy, smart enough to know which way the country winds are blowing in 2013. Positioned as a bit of a traditionalist ever since he won Nashville Star in 2005, Young now makes a modern move with 2013's A.M., brightening up his sound by leaning on cheerful, chipper pop hooks and a production so gleaming it shows his reflection; he has even chosen to smile on his album cover for the first time ever. Certainly, it's hard to shake the impression that Young has been rocked by the success of Luke Bryan, whose amiable bro-next-door party-hearty persona permeates every part of A.M. that isn't devoted to ballads. Those slow, sometimes melodramatic songs remain Young's specialty and although they're often somewhat glossier here than they've been before -- there's a greater emphasis on echoing guitars, the kind that can fill an arena -- they feel like they belong to an older, different artist than the one that's showcased on the rest of A.M., an album so steeped in modern vernacular that one of the centerpieces is a song called "Text Me Texas" (which, ironically enough, is perhaps the purest bit of country here). Such a radical shift in sensibility has been enough to derail careers, but at his core Young is a people pleaser so his new set of threads suits him well. His baritone lends heft to the rowdy party "Aw Naw," yet it's supple enough to sound sunny on "Hold You to It" or "Nothin' But the Cooler Left," a breezy ode to day-drinking. Young always seemed a shade too earnest on his earlier records so this unabashed embrace of country-pop -- one that wasn't necessarily pushed on him, based on the six co-writes he has here, almost all of them among the poppier material -- is at first a little startling but it winds up being the right direction for an artist whose greatest asset has always been his inherent likeability. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Everything I expected and so much more

I've purchased a lot of records over the years and rarely have any of them exceeded my expectations quite like Chris Young's latest release, 'A.M.' Since receiving my pre-ordered copies, this CD is the only thing I've listened to and I haven't once felt the need to skip a single one of the 11 tracks, a very rare occurrence for me. As a rule, there's always a clunker in the mix. Let's just say 'A.M.' is breaking the rules, and I mean that in the best possible way. Fans of Young's music will recognize his signature sense of fun and love of all things country in the themes of these songs, but this time it's set to a faster, more rock-driven rhythm than his previous efforts. 'Aw Naw', 'A.M.', 'Nothin' But The Cooler Left' and 'We're Gonna Find It Tonight' keep the party rolling. Mid-tempo grooves like 'Hold You To It', 'Who I Am With You' and 'Lighters In The Air' take the pace down a notch, but make up for it in the increase in the heat index. Those songs are just plain SEXY. Which works out nicely since Young was named 'Sexiest Voice in Country Music' by the online publication Taste of Country. Not to worry, though, if it's the ballads that do it for you as opposed to the tempo numbers, because this record contains three of the best love songs recorded by ANY country artist in years. 'Lonely Eyes', 'Forgiveness' and 'Goodbye' feature not only beautifully-crafted lyrics, but also three of the most heartfelt, honest vocal performances Young has ever delivered. If I had to pick one thing that stood out on this record head-and-shoulders above everything else Young has released, it would be that his voice -- that rich, unforgettable baritone - is the focal point of every song, and for me, that means I will be listening to this record into the wee hours of the 'A.M.' for a long, long time to come.

Great deal. Great CD.

Loving all the songs!

Must have CD

From the first song to the last it's outstanding!

Very good CD. Not quite as good as his last one.

Good CD by Chris Young! Just not as good as his last one. I know, though, that artists try not to repeat the same thinking on album after album in case it gets stale. This one is just a little too heavy on either the "drinking is cool" thinking and the "lovey dovey" stuff.
