Hank III for III

Yeah, I guess Straight To Hell (Curb) by Hank Williams III, is another good album. But he could be making great albums. Like Shooter Jennings' debut, this suffers from too much "what's wrong with Country today-and I love the Old style Country Singers best-material". I could also do without the gay put-down that leads off one track. What's funny about Hank III is that he hates his record company, but still won't leave them. In every interview I've read, he mentions this Punk/Rock/Country hybrid he has in the can. It's supposed to be as wild as he is. On the bonus disc, you get a feel of that album. But as long as Hank III is on a major label, he''ll never get to release the crazy stuff he has in the can. He's 3 for 3 as far as albums go, but so far they're doubles, not home runs.
