We gave it a B-

Jake Owen kicks off his sophomore effort in rakish lonely-rambler style with the dark, driving ”Tell Me,” and there’s believable passion behind his drawl on single ”Don’t Think I Can’t Love You.” But the rest of Easy Does It suffers from curiously opposing problems: too many songs in awe of generically wild women — including ”Eight Second Ride,” repeated from his 2006 debut — and a tendency for the 27-year-old to slip into middle-aged schmaltz. Fingers crossed he’ll be around to revisit the more maudlin stuff in about two decades. B?
