Steve Earle sounds like he would sing country music. That is my first thought. I hate country is my second one. And I would be correct. His debut album Guitar Town is even listed on the 500 greatest albums of all time in Rolling Stone magazine. I am not convinced it will be good. Did I say that I really hate country music? I am not sure which I hate more out of rap and country. Country sounds like cats are being murdered, which is not a bad thought.
Why is this on the list? Is it the rockabilly and country music combo during the synth-pop years? Stray Cats did it too, but they did it better without the country sound. I did not really like the Stray Cats, but I like Steve Earle even less. 1/10.
