Picks and Pans Review: Wave on Wave

Pat Green (Universal)

In the middle of this sober, meditative country disc, Pat Green lightens things up with "Elvis," a witty tune that adopts Presley's current point of view in the hereafter: "Once a year they all come to see me/ I watch them throwing flowers at my toes." Green cowrote "Elvis," as he did 12 of the 13 songs on this thoughtful if downbeat album, but more typical of the singer's less-than-rosy view of the universe is "If I Was the Devil": "If I was the devil, I'd gather up all of your dreams/ And drop them to the bottom of a black lagoon." Musically the CD is an accomplished amalgam of country and blues-rock, demonstrating that Green is more than your average Texas troubadour.

BOTTOM LINE: Tasty Wave.
