Album Review: 'Big Time' (1997)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Trace Adkins; Genre: Country

Adkins returns with the same emotional intensity and big baritone that made his debut so impressive. But he trades his brooding left-field songs for more routine, if accessible, dance tunes, heartbreak ballads, and humor (''Nothin' but Tail Lights'' a shut-my-mouth meditation on wild-child love). B
