We gave it a B+

The Georgia-bred songwriter introduced himself as a country drifter with a gift for storytelling on his solid 2012 Up All Night. His follow-up has bigger ambitions: Wild Ones is Springsteen-style rock that reaches for the stadium’s nosebleeds. Moore hasn’t ditched his country roots entirely, but it’s the burn-the-barn-down stompers like “Come and Get It” that stick. B+
