Gilbert’s new album, The Devil Don’t Sleep, has its moments of ascension, like the pronouncement of a female acquaintance to be a “smokin’ gun” and the keening quality of a cry to “let it rain, let it rain, let it rain”. If you like rock-infused country you should give this album a try. It certainly delivers on the “infused” part with nearly every one of the album’s mid-tempo songs borrowing something from that other genre of music. And I just have to publicly appreciate this level of commitment, the borrowing even goes down to the title of track 1, “Rockin’ Chairs”
Suggested Use: Again, if you dig rock-infused country music, this is a great album to order fast food to on a Friday night; tunes to blare from your Pioneers as you grin at the folks on the other side of the drive-thru window letting them know you’re about to have a great weekend.
