Single Review: “These Are The Good Ole Days” by James Otto

October 30, 2008

After “For You” failed to make a decent mark on radio, James has decided to reveal a less love-oriented and more enjoyable song from his catalogue. this is probably a smart move on his part and on where his label is concerned because, other than Blake Shelton and Faith Hill, no other artist is currently helping the label keep up in the genre. Even Big & Rich are down for the count.

With his new single James attempts to reveal his stage performance and personality by reaching out to the young and old and revealing that from all angles it’s much more productive and enjoyable if one sees today as the good ole days not just yesterday. The song is accompanied by a rather catchy beat that is bound to get the foot tapping and incorporates an impressive country-crossover feel. While this may not be the best song in the world, it certainly demonstrates James’ potential as an artist from many different angles.

Grade: B+

    I had been hoping that “For You” would be a big hit, it was an awesome song and the video perfectly followed up “Just Got Started Loving You”‘s. This is actually one of my least favorite ones from the album but I can see it becoming a hit.
