Playing the outlaw, Texan Pat Green vows to get back at some enemies on "Sweet Revenge," singing that he wants to "kill their horses and steal their boots." This disc could use more such reminders of Green's Lone Star State roots. But after last year's gold Wave on Wave, it seems as if success is spoiling Green. Although Green's basic bluesy style is still intact, songs like the almost fluffy "College," cowritten with Brad Paisley, sound out of place. Another collaboration, the jaunty "Baby Doll," cowritten with Rob Thomas of matchbox twenty, seems more suited to Green, as does the western-sounding "Somewhere Between Texas and Mexico."
