 Jeremy Pinnell

Goodbye L.A.

Sofaburn Records

This is good, hardcore, country rock, as it does rock at times, and other times it steps lively. Pinnell's voice is weathered, he's seen and done some things, but he always keeps his chin up and keeps going.

Lyrically, it's a bit old-fashioned, in a good way. For instance, “Night Time Eagle,” where a musician on tour gets homesick and wishes the tour would end. It's a perfect antidote to songs about how wonderful the road is. Or the title track, where he wants to settle down with one good woman. Nothing wrong with monogamy.

So if you want some country rock that's a bit quirky at times, in a good way, like on “Fighting Man,” and a meaningful good time, this album is for you.
