George Jones: The Rock: Stone Cold Country 2001 (Bandit)

John Morthland, No Depression, November 2001

IN MOST WAYS, this is a textbook follow-up to George Jones' eerie, surprisingly substantial 1999 album Cold Hard Truth – same basic song ideas only not quite as good, similar sound only not quite as strong, those mellow-but-boy-did-he-earn-it vocals only not quite as unfettered.
