Picks and Pans Review: One Way to Go

Larry Boone

Maybe it's because he's a mere Larry in a world of Clints, Garths, Dwights and Randys. Maybe it has something to do with the arcane world of record marketing. In any case, after three solo albums, Boone, 34, is less well known than he ought to be.

On this album, he hits most of the checkpoints frequented by today's tradition-minded but modern male country singers, from the gospel-tinged "Standing in the River" to the self-flagellating "It Wouldn't Kill Me." And he has the right deep voice, the right ability to rock just enough.

Boone also writes—seven of this album's 10 songs have his name on them—and has a way with a metaphor, most notably in "Rock in the Road."

As for the name business, it could be worse. His parents could have been the jokey sort who would have called him Daniel. (Columbia)"
