CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

He never pushes too hard, yet he has a light touch, so he sounds as comfortable sliding into a wall of digital sound as he does singing with just an acoustic guitar or two.

69
Pitchfork

With a 30-song record, the rising country star takes a closer look at Music Row clichés, writing in easy, idiomatic shorthand that plunges you directly into his world.

Rolling Stone

The flaws of Dangerous, apart from being 17 songs too long, is that Wallen does not always seem up to the heavy task of pumping fresh life into well-worn topics.

Simply, don't listen to this if you have no interest in country music.

As someone who has found a new love for the collectivist themes of southern culture and country music, this was released at a great time for me. A lot of solid, fit-for-the-radio, country-pop tunes. I think this is another Roddy Ricch situation. All ropes were tied, it just isn't crazy inventive, it's like the best of genericism. Morgan got his start on The Voice in 2014 and has been at it ever since. Spotify promoted the ... read more

I really don't know what so many people see in this guy. He's just another painfully average and derivative country artist that the last decade provided more than enough of. His sound isn't original or "fresh" (as many publications claim), and his songwriting is PAINFULLY cliche to that of mainstream country. However, despite the glaring mediocrity of every track, the final nail in the coffin for this particular album is its behemoth length. In my opinion, there is only one country ... read more

they're so many reasons why this album shouldn't work.

for one it's a double album which is generally not a good idea especially if it can't justify it's length or feels like you put a bunch of throwaway tracks on it, just because...

it's also a mainstream Country album which don't tend to turn out that good.
refer to a certain mainstream ""Country"" album that came out last year if you wanna know what i mean.

shouldn't be too hard to find since it was simply the worst ... read more

As someone who isn’t turned off after hearing the word country, and actively enjoys lots of country music (mostly female, Miranda Lambert etc) I think that if this was half or even a third of the length it is then it would be okay, but this much generic material isn’t the making of a good album.

If you’re looking for a good modern country double album, my recommendation would be Miranda Lambert’s The Weight of These Wings, which holds up for 94 minutes, where this ... read more

The first 2021 album I am reviewing is this Morgan Wallen album. I think it's pretty good. But oh my lord, IT WAS 30 TRACKS! I literally listened to "Super Gar-Gar World" and this in the same week. Two of the longest records I've ever heard. Despite the length of it, I found a lot of quality in it. There are no bad songs which I'm happy about. The closest has to be "Livin’ the Dream", Need a Boat", and the lyrics on "Your Bartender" with those first two ... read more
