Kiefer Sutherland - Reckless & Me, album review

Synonyms and Similes

When faded needs a monosyllabic synonym, or perhaps the simile needs re-thinking: in a Country album with consistently fine tunes – nothing yee-haw, but generic – the song Faded Pair of Blue Jeans is the most clich├ęd lyrically but disrupts more, relatively speaking, when it just doesn’t scan in the chorus.

Yep, that’s a nit-pick. Only one. Ironic too really because the album’s strength, and certainly selling point, will be its formulaic quality, that which gives actor Kiefer Sutherland his Country credibility because these are authentic and hugely listenable songs, played superbly throughout, especially and for example Reckless & Me which follows Faded…, as strong and solid a country rock number as a brand new pair of Levis.
