5-1-5-0—Dierks Bentley (Capitol)

Says on the box those numbers are police call code for: nutcase on the loose. So it’s about him dealing with a crazy woman. Good idea for a song, I just wish it worked out better. After the superb last album, I was certainly hoping for something more than this. It starts real nice but soon becomes overly-produced and noisy. Maybe it’ll start to feel better in me ears after more listening, but five spins in now, I’m just ready for it to be over each time.
