    Beyonce's "Cowboy Carter" is, that ill-begotten version of "Jolene" aside, a really good album. (The superb "Blackbird" cover! That opera song!) But aside from the wonderful "Texas Hold 'Em," it never really delivers on its implicit promise of fusing country music with fresher elements from historically Black music. Its explanation of the various musical tributaries that feed into the grand delta of Country & Western is good and worthwhile, but never quite satisfying. Other projects like Gangstagrass have had more success as cross-genre explorations, but they get their juice from the clash between the two styles, rather than fusing them into a coherent whole. To my ears, mainstream American country has gotten unbearably stale, ignoring a lot of interesting new contenders in favor of a whole buncha middle-aged white guys with identical voices and identically lame-to-abhorrent backwards-looking politics. Even a generally lovable guy like Luke Combs, working with all the earnest humility in the world from an outstanding song like "Fast Car," ends up sounding middle-of-the-road. (In fairness, anyone would, compared to Tracy Chapman.) But here comes Shaboozey, fresh from guesting on a couple of "Cowboy Carter" tracks, to deliver in truckloads on the promise of fusing country music with rap, soul, and hip-hop. In track after track on this album, Shaboozey finds the perfect happy medium between country and Post Malone-style, autotuned-warbling rap, seamlessly blending all the most satisfying elements of each genre. Shaboozey makes "hard living outlaws" the center of his Venn diagram here, and delivers one fantastic track after another on that theme. There are good songs and better songs -- "A Bar Song (Tipsy)," with its indestructable singalong chorus, should absolutely be _a_ Song of the Summer, if not _the_ song -- but zero bad or even middling songs. He's got an extraordinary voice, particularly in its vulnerability. There's an ache, a tender yearning, in those vocals that you rarely hear in male country vocalists, much less this consistently. I especially like how he drops the autotune in the album's final, reflective track to let his emotion shine through all the brighter. Shaboozey goes more than skin deep in weaving together these genres. Both country and rap delight in linguistic wit, and this album delivers. Listen to his chain of internal assonant rhymes in the chorus to "A Bar Song," from "whiskey" to "history" to "Fifth Street" to "tipsy." That's some gorgeous wordplay! And what he leaves out of his music is just as important as what he puts in: It's fully credible as outlaw country without any misogyny or reactionary ugliness. The songs here are kind, empathetic, appealing to the things we have in common instead of trying for tribal carve-outs. This album simultaneously sounds completely fresh and comfort-food familiar, something brand new that's existed for decades. It knocked me out. I hope Shaboozey breaks huge with this, and that his success kicks open the door not only for more artists and albums with a sound like this, but for a whole host of takes on country that similarly chart their own bold new courses.

    I was raised on real country music & this just simply isn't it. He sounds like his voice is being played in slow motion or he has a speech impediment. No im not white- stop projecting your own bigot beliefs. It's just not a true country album. No.

    Sorry but real country artists don’t look like they belong in Harlem or the Bronx. This guy looks ghetto and doesn’t belong in country music. If you’re gonna attempt to be a country singer at least look the part and not like a gangbanger.
