We gave it a B-

With their 1991 debut, Brooks and Dunn brought a freshness back to country-rock, only to lapse into second-rate formula on their sophomore album. On the fourth outing Borderline, they hit and miss, veering from sturdy ballads to infectious dance songs with cliched lyrics about lonely truckers, bored housewives, and drinking-her-off-my-mind. One high spot: a remake of the vaguely calypsonian ”My Maria.”
