article imageReview: The Band Perry release sophomore studio album 'Pioneer'

By Markos Papadatos     Apr 8, 2013 in Entertainment
The Band Perry’s latest CD “Pioneer” was released on April 2, 2013, via their record label, Republic Nashville. Veteran guitarist and producer Dann Huff produced this project and the band either wrote or co-wrote nine out of the twelve songs on ther
It opens with the lead-off single, their chart-topping hit “Better Dig Two” and it is followed by the up-tempo “Done” (their current Top 20 single on country radio) and the mellifluous track “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely.”
The title cut is stellar and it showcases their superb storytelling ability and soaring harmonies. “Forever Mine Nevermind,” which was co-penned by Brad Paisley, is a high energy vocal and “Night Gone Wasted” is an equally impressive country-rock tune.
The highlight track on the entire album is “Mother Like Mine,” which is an ode to the narrator’s mother. Many fans can relate to this bittersweet vocal and it would make an ideal theme song for Mother’s Day.
“I’m a Keeper” is a fun and addicting melody, meanwhile “Back to Me Without You” is a poignant tune about overcoming a failing romance.
It closes with the slow-moving yet beautiful ballad “End of Time.”
The Verdict
Overall, there is no sophomore slump in The Band Perry’s latest studio album “Pioneer” and it is definitely a “keeper.” Kimberly’s vocals are powerful, captivating and soothing. It is a highly eclectic collection of well-written songs with exquisite harmony vocals from Kimberly’s brothers and fellow band-mates Reid and Neil Perry. This CD garners an “A” rating.
