Road To Ensenada is the latest Rock CD released by the richly talented Lyle Lovett who once again has delivered a brilliant collection of tracks. I?m confident Lyle Lovett fans, and Rock fans alike will be pleased with this one.
This CD grabs your attention right from the outset with Don’t Touch My Hat and won?t let go until the very last note of the very last song The Road To Ensenada, which is another great track by the way.
Lyle Lovett is one of those musicians that has the ability to just win you over with him talent. The kind of artist it?s really a treat to be able to listen to.
Listen to this CD and I believe you?ll find there’s not much to dis-like about it. The songs are inspired, the production is simply outstanding, and Lyle Lovett is clearly in top form. So much so that if you’re even mildly into Rock music you’ll enjoy this CD.
While this entire CD is really very good some of my favorites are track 2 – Her First Mistake, track 9 – I Can’t Love You Anymore, and track 12 – The Road To Ensenada
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Don’t Touch My Hat. This is a great track!
