Buenas Noches From a Lonely Room

1 rating: 3.0
An album by Dwight Yoakam

Yoakam's third album finds him more daring in his incorporation ofCreedence-style rock guitar fills--Pete Anderson, take a bow--and Tex-Mex polka into his Bakersfield stomp. Class resentment and murderous jealousy color this disc much more than its predecessors; … see full wiki

Pushing the Envelope and Sounding Good Doing It

  • Jul 9, 2003
Rating:
+3
Dwight's third album is a standout. Although he has a couple of other albums that contain, overall, better songs, this particular album seems to push the envelope a little. There seems to be a Merle Haggard influence in many of these songs, and there is an obvious Buck Owens flavor to the entire album. "She Wore Red Dresses" is probably one of the most daring country songs recorded in the 80's. How many other artists sang about killing a cheating wife during that decade? It's dark sound and vengeful lyrics make it the star of this playlist. "I Sang Dixie" is a personal favorite. "I Got You" and "Streets of Bakersfield" have a man-against-the-system feel to them. Other good songs on this album include "Send Me The Pillow" and "Hold On to God." Overall, a good album with four great songs. As always, Pete Anderson's talent almost overshadows the star-power of Dwight. A perfect beginner's album to introduce you to Dwight Yoakam.
