Single Review: “Relentless” by Jason Aldean

April 19, 2008

The title track from Jason Aldean’s sophomore album isn’t to bad. It continues a streak of very plain singles from some of country music’s heavy hitters like Carrie Underwood and Brooks and Dunn, so it is quite possible that this could be another hit for Jason very easily.

As far as the song itself goes, it is as extreme as the name says. You know you’re talking about powerful love when all you can say to describe the feeling and effect it has on you is relentless. The song expresses this in a mid paced format which relieves it of that mushy love song feel. This a good thing considering that this would be like putting a pink shirt on a wrestler for this song. It is an enjoyable tune in its own right. It’s far from the strongest song that Jason has at his disposal, but it gets the job done. The fact that it is the third single from the album neither excites nor disappoints me. It’s a likable song, but maybe it’s a little to early in his career for Jason and/or his label to use a song like this to hold him up there.

    The verses are quite dull, but the chorus isn’t so much. But overall I find it somewhat disappointing compared to his first 4 singles. It lacks the same fire that they had. However, this isn’t a terrible song.

    As long as “Not Every Man Lives” gets to be a single, I won’t complain that this one is.

    I agree with you there Kent. The problem is I believe Jason has revealed he is working on more material and as of now there is no plan to release a 4rth single from the album.
