An EMI Records Nashville Release; ℗ 2018 UMG Recordings, Inc.
Desperate Man Tracklist:
Country is taking a dark turn. Millions of Americans are listening for their voice to be represented in country music, and are coming away empty. Rather than catering to strange Kane & FGL minorities, Church needs to listen & absorb modern country legends like Alabama, Cash, Hank Jr, Randy Travis, Garth Brooks and George Strait.
Can't understand the people on here who hated this album! Theres a lot of great song writting that tells a story and brings back some memories for alot of people. Hippie Radio is one for me reminds me of my teen years ,how I met my husband who Iam still with today! Love Eric Church he is solid!
Eric never has an album that will sound the same. I’m very disappointed in the rude reviews. Must not be real fans of Eric’s amazing voice and music skills. This album is very bluesy! And I love it! I’m not sure if people know what actual country music is suppose to sound like, but what’s on the top of charts isn’t country to me! Keep on keeping on Eric!! Great Record!
I like Eric Church’s growth from a shallow radio friendly country artist to a polished Americana styled country artist. I think this is the Eric Church he’s wanted to be all alone. The Outsiders, Mr. Misunderstood, and Desperate Man are definitely his best records and each record differs from its predecessor in a positive way while staying true to who Eric is. It’s very reminiscent to Sturgill Simpson’s varying sound from album to album. Keep up the great work Eric! You rock brother 🤘😝🤘.
Eric is one of the most talented artist in the world, open your mind and heart. He plays from experience, from his heart and from his fans heart. If a certain song does not touch one of your experience then connect to the music . I am disappointed in the reviewers. What is wrong with you ? Are you so bitter that you are closed off to any understanding of the levels that music can bring to your heart?
I have so many favorite songs on this album, it would be more efficient to list the ones that aren't! Eric Church always changes his sound with each album, and yet, each album is excellent. If anyone thinks his music sounds like the majority of what's on country music radio, they're bat-sh** crazy.
All the one stars on here are people who are upset with Eric’s comments on guns or politics. Grow up. His music is still good. So what, he has a slightly different opinion than all you “country” people. Judge an artist by his music not his political views. I like Bruce Springsteen but he is a hardcore liberal. But I don’t care because he has great music.
The Eric Church we all fell in love with us evolving as an artist. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective. His music still carries similar attitude but but for me, I miss his old sound.
I love this album. I really enjoy traditional country music and this album doesn't fall nicely into that category, but the songs are still great. And that's what's important - the songs. It's definelty got elements of blues and rock. Seems to me that Eric's always mixed music styles. Regardless of genre, the music is moving, heart-felt, and interesting. Clever stories and nice melodies. I'm happy to see such a strong collection of songs on an album this deep into Mr. Church's career.
I bought Desperate man and Some of it. I think Eric is an amazing artist who gets bored with old style country songs. He has every right to test the boundaries of his musicianship. I can only imagine the late night jam sessions with his band when coming up with this new material. Im not sure where Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban & Thomas Rhett are going with their sound lately. Even Tim Seems to be straying away from country. Eric isnt straying, he is just pushing his limits. I think he is doing a good job in keeping the torch lit.
It took a few times of just letting it play while I did house work or driving and the album proved to be be just as brilliant as all of them. Absolutely love it!!! The lyrics in many of the songs are so capturing if you really sit down and listen. If you’re a true Eric lover you will love it too!
What album are people listening to giving these bad reviews?!? Monsters is one of my all time favorite tracks. Some of it. Heart like a wheel. The swampy lead single is awesome. Church is the man. Church. Combs. Stapleton. Real music.
This so called crap you call country music is a joke when do country songs rap with a beat from Britney Spears and the lyrics are horrible if you’re not crying over loosing a women your getting drunk on a pontoon with a sunburn going up down up down gawwwdd this is terrible I am forced to listen to this crap day after day at work but I got my dirt road cred and I’m going to get my outside on psh
If you prefer Eric Church’s earlier work from ‘Chief’ on back to ‘Sinners like Me’ you should enjoy this. I’m guessing all the negative reviews are coming from people who heard the title track and assumed the whole album was pop-country. Not the case at all. This album feels a lot like ‘Chief’ where the band seems to be taking more risks without worrying too much about popular opinion. I’m really digging the sound and lyrics of Solid, Heart like a Wheel and Higher Wire.
