White Trash With Money (2006)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Apr 11, 2006; Lead Performance: Toby Keith; Genre: Country

The title perpetuates Toby Keith's image of choice, but except for the opening and closing tracks, this is one of his least ''trashy'' efforts. Like his last album, this one's less about attitude than song craft, with plenty of subliminal homage to the '70s country he grew up on; tracks 2-4 even have terribly unfashionable string arrangements. If it had been more than 11 months between albums, White Trash With Money — the first release on Keith's own label — might have even choicer cuts, but like the similarly indie-minded Prince, Keith is valuing prodigiousness over being a prodigy.
