How else to explain the rapid fire delivery and fierce banjo and guitar on “Days of Gold”, which has him spitting out every country summer song cliché as quickly as he can get them out of his mouth?
Truth is, if the exact same lyric was delivered in the typical, mid-tempo, paint by numbers presentation, I’d be ripping it to shreds right now. But the sheer adrenaline of the track makes it work. It would be a terrible cocktail to sip on, but as a quick shooter, it’s pretty good.
