Posted on

Pat Green works in the Robert Earl Keen style of Texas singer-songwriters, which means his pen is mightier than his voice. It also means that Green straddles the line between country and rock, seeming comfortable with one cowboy boot in each genre. Lucky Ones has some flat spots, but ”Sweet Revenge” conjures Steve Earle’s ”Copperhead Road,” ”My Little Heaven” outperforms its title, and traditionalist Brad Paisley rescues the hokey ”College.”
