Tim McGraw Emotional Traffic
February 8, 2012 by staff
Tim McGraw Emotional Traffic, Tim McGraw drives in a new direction with Emotional Traffic. Despite Tim McGraw straddling the line between a somber country tone and a peppy pop sound in his most recent project, his smooth vocals and expressive songs make for an enjoyable album from start to finish.
The album leads with a slow song, “Halo,” about a downtrodden lover, that picks up just enough in the chorus to keep the song from going into the territory of an overly emotional country singer. It then leads into an electric guitar solo that seems out of place and frankly shocks listeners, but this rebellion fits nicely with the tone.
McGraw uses a hefty amount of electric guitar solos in this album, as they occur in several other tracks on Emotional Traffic, including the second track “Right Back Atcha Babe.” McGraw picks up the tempo a bit with this track, presenting a sample of how he can mix two sounds for two audiences in a way that can still be seen as decent, even by the harshest of country critics.
Where others may fail to integrate the two clashing genres, McGraw manages to deliver by taking the listener on a roller coaster ride, or, more aptly, a traffic jam of emotions and rhythms from one song to the next.
That isn’t to say that his country roots are completely removed, after all, how could they be with a song named “Touchdown Jesus.” But it’s obvious that the direction McGraw took when recording in the studio this time around was for a more diverse audience. Country pro McGraw steps outside of the box and even records a song with Pop and R&B singer Ne-Yo on the album titled “Only Human.” And although it was a risky move, it’s one that undoubtedly paid off for the popular star.
