A Pretty Good Guy

Sound: The music on the "A Pretty Good Guy" revolves heavily around country and southern rock. The acoustics on the album are probably the best feature of the music. Although, some will prefer the electric riffs found in "Heart Of Stone". Also notable is the violin on the track "North Dakota" it fits perfectly in the overall feeling of the song. While at some points the music might seem repetitive, the stories told make each song feel very different from the last. So whether you like it soft or upbeat, there is something for you on this album. // 8
Lyrics: Chris' proves he can hold his own in lyrics as well as music on the album. He touches on subjects of poverty, revenge, loss of a loved one, and much more. The track "North Dakota" tells the story of man who lost his love in the cold winters of northern country. While "Down The River" switches pace into a story of a man and his brother fishing, until two men looking for trouble come along. The vocals on the album are spot-on fitting perfectly into each songs feeling. Chris can pull on your heart strings through his voice and the stories told. Each song has its own worth solely in lyrics. // 10
Overall Impression: "A Pretty Good Guy" belongs on the shelf of anyone who loves country music. Chris Knight fits into the category of Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, and almost all artists in country music. Looking back at this review it may have seemed too good but "A Pretty Good Guy" is one of those rare gems that go unnoticed for too long. Notable tracks are "North Dakota", "If I Were You", and "Down The River". Although tracks like "Becky's Bible" and "Send A Boat" are well deserving of their share of attention.
