Cody Jinks – I’m Not The Devil – Album Review

For my 603rd review, I head back to Texas country and find a damn solid if broadly sketched record.

Best Songs: ‘Give All You Can’, ‘No Guarantees’, ‘No Words’, ‘Heavy Load’, ‘Grey’, ‘Vampires’, ‘Chase That Song’
Worst Songs: ‘She’s All Mine’


To skip my preamble, go to 2:06

Review ‘Endless’ by Frank Ocean

Trey Alexander says:

Even though all his albums are, at the less 9’s, it’s good to see you covering one of the top 3 true roots country artist out there.

Geoffrey Todd says:

Loved the album! He also puts on one of the best live shows. Can’t wait for the next!

William Curran says:

Lindsey Stirling Brave Enough?

Teddy Haines says:

Huh. It’s unlike you to do the video first and then update the blog. I usually check there first for reviews.

David Overstreet says:

You mention that he does not take any musical chances. But as a fan of this style of country music, and his music in specific…I like that about the album. I like that predicability. It’s what draws me, and many others to his music and to artists that are like him.

Brent Easterwood says:

Cody Jinks is such a breath of fresh air for country music, especially those who are sick of the pop-country that has run its course. I wouldn’t call him a word smith, but his lyrics are personal, relatable, and honest. That mixed with his voice and appropriate instrument mix, there is little to wonder why he is growing more popular every day.

David Overstreet says:

The only correction I would make here is that Cody Jinks had 2 albums before Less Wise. The first was named “Collector’s Item” and the second was named “Cast No Stones”… But both are no longer available.

Are you going to review “Music Is The Weapon” by Major Lazer?

Spencer fisher says:

I’m just curious to who you are to judge or give opinion are you a music critic with any background in music? I just heard him for the first time this weekend and I think he brings back the original country music that’s become country pop music like Luke Bryan which I can’t stand and is the furthest thing from real country like Waylon Waylon and Merle and Johnson I think it’s refreshing to hear someone his voice.

CountryMC says:
