Jon Pardi – California Sunrise – Album Review

For my 575th review, I discuss Jon Pardi’s second, defiantly neotraditional country effort.

Best Songs: ‘She Ain’t In It’, ‘California Sunrise’, ‘Head Over Boots’, ‘Cowboy Hat’, ‘Out Of Style’
Worst Songs: ‘Dirt On My Boots’


To skip my preamble, go to 1:27

Ethan Tone says:

A suggestion for an album review:Magma by Gojira heard it’s one of their best albums to date

Theonewithglasse says:

Can you review Uma kompton album it is a trainwreck of epic proportions

Jason Hopkins says:

As I listen to this album more, it starts to get weaker and weaker. The writing lacks deeper meaning, or is too broad, and Pardi’s nasally voice grates on the nerves after too many listens. And yeah, there’s some clear label tampering going on here with “Heartache On The Dance Floor” and “Dirt On My Boots”. However, I love the 90s country sound, including the occasional cheesiness that comes with it. Pardi does pull these songs off well, and the production and instrumentation is fantastic. Added bonus, all the instruments are real!

Omen Strike says:

will you be reviewing wild world by Bastille (whenever it does come out)?

Elias Villa says:

Could you review Straight Outta Oz by Todrick Hall?

CountryMC says:

I’ve always thought jon pardi sounded like Tyler Hubbard from FGL. On his first hit “Up all night” when I heard it on the radio I thought it was FGL.

Rudy Parris says:

I really want to like this album, but there is something off putting about it that I can’t place.

For the record I agree with your review, I thought the album would interest me but taking some listens on GhostTunes I decided to pass on it

ElectroChart Top 25 says:

I hear MØ has a 2nd upcoming album later this year. Mark, can you cover it? You would like “Kamikaze” and “Final Song” and her voice has gotten better! 🙂

Please tell me you’re going to review Cash Cash’s debut album.

Second Avenger says:

hey mark, how about instead of having a best songs and worst songs section in the description, you list the songs ranked from best to worst. i know your opinions and ranking would change over-time, but i think it would be a better way of presenting it, especially given sometimes I (and probably most of your other viewers) wonder what you think of a particular track.

Wonkey Dude98 says:
