Waitin' On Sundown

Genre: Country

On Waitin’ on Sundown (Arista), their third spin around the dance floor, Brooks & Dunn again fail to recapture the bright insouciance that sparked their debut album, instead upping the contrivance level with references to ”buckle bunnies,” ”queen bees,” and ”neon knights.” A couple of sturdy tunes (the honky-tonk ”I’ll Never Forgive My Heart,” the western-swing ”If That’s the Way You Want It”) nearly bail them out. But more and more, these triple-platinum hit makers-who helped spur the country dance-club craze of the early ’90s-sound like yesterday’s news. C+
