Montgomery Gentry

Four producers, an executive producer and 20 songwriters make for too many cooks on Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry's fourth album, which suffers from serious lapses in judgment. Take the insipid "It's All Good," which takes its title from a tired hip-hop cliché that is ill-suited to the country duo. Also showing poor taste is the downbeat "Gone," which lists things that have passed on, including freight trains, bad relationships and, crudely, "a Civil War soldier—bang, bang." There are a couple of enjoyable tracks, such as the lively "All I Know About Mexico" and the romantic "Talking to My Angel," and the pair are in fine voice through out. Next time, though, they would be better served to cut down on the collaborators and do more of their own thing.
