What ever happened to the Rodney Atkins that put out a string of interesting and memorable singles in 2006-2007? Is he now content to remain a continually middlebrow purveyor of radio filler?
Atkins’ material has become so stale and predictable as of late that his new single “Just Wanna Rock ’N Roll” seems to merit little description, except to put to rest any expectations of it defying expectations. Its only defining characteristic of note is its inclusion of the phrase “effed up.”
“Just Wanna Rock N Roll” is to 2012 what “Take a Back Road” was to 2011. Enough said?
