Honestly, based off of “Country Stuff” and “Fancy Like” I’m surprised I didn’t hate this more. Despite me not enjoying any of it, I couldn’t really bring myself to have a strong aversion to it besides the two tracks I mentioned. A lot of this album shares many of the same problems that plagued “Life Rolls On” by Florida Georgia Line - which was on my worst list last year - but while that album indulged in the worst stereotypes and cliches of modern bro country as a means to pander to their audience, Walker Hayes just seems like a well meaning but kind of dumb bloke with a defensive insecurity about his lifestyle and a bad taste in music. This album is mind numbing and not an enjoyable listen, but it leaves barely any impression besides embarrassment from listening to what’s essentially a three minute jingle. I don’t know if we’ll ever see Walker Hayes again, the jury’s out for whether he has enough star power to stick around, but I don’t think anyone is going to remember this album in like a month.
That’s one of the worst fucking album titles I’ve ever seen though.
