Bill Lloyd – Back To Even

Nashville power-pop godfather returns

Trending Now

Those who remember him from ’80s country-rock duo Foster & Lloyd, or from his guest slots with Marshall Crenshaw and Steve Earle, will know Lloyd as an expert at country and power-pop fusions similar to Pat Buchanan. The 15 tracks here include collaborations with Poco’s Rusty Young, Peter Case and Beth Nielsen Chapman?whose “Dancing With The Past”symbolises the twangy country/tangy rhythms on offer. Essentially, though, this is a class solo disc with some perfectly executed bittersweet pieces like “Me Against Me”and “Kissed Your Sister”to lengthen the summer.
