Guide Review - Rodney Atkins - 'Honesty'
While "Sing Along" was a solid single, the next single, "Honesty (Write Me A List)," was the home run. An instant hit that's now in the Top 10, Honesty also became the name of the CD (previously self-titled), and it was released.
The CD features plenty of potential singles like the rollicking "Monkey In The Middle" and sensitive ballads "Someone To Share It With" and "The Love That We Make." Scotty Emerick wrote the fun "Uncomplicated" while Rodney's own "What's Left of Me" has the sound that would make a great summertime single.
When the songs are mixed together, there are elements of other popular singers mixed in with Rodney's personal style. While that can be a bad thing for some, it's actually a good thing to me and thus makes the CD even more enjoyable (I always like to compare singers to each other). Featuring 12 good songs, Honesty is sure to have something to please many country music fans for years to come.
