Hi-Res
As both a songwriter and singer, Cole Swindell played no small part in popularizing the party-hearty sound of bro-country in the early 2000s, but there comes a time when every man must slow his roll. For Swindell, that time is his third album, All of It. Deliberately heavy on ballads, All of It still has the obligatory songs about drinking, but now Swindell slides "show me what that rockin' body looks like in the firelight" into the slow-burning title track: he's no longer wanting to see that girl tear it up in the back of his truck, he's looking for an intimate night at home, maybe even more than one. Swindell's self-conscious maturity is admirable even if it winds up turning All of It into something of a snooze. Never the liveliest singer -- he performs as if he were a writer -- Swindell sinks into the well-manicured arrangements, sounding as assured crooning a bittersweet ballad ("Dad's Old Number") as he does piecing together the wreckage from a night of boozing ("Sounded Good Last Night"). While Michael Carter's production contains elements of the R&B inflections of late-2010s country -- it's evident primarily in the understated electronic rhythms peppered through the record -- Swindell's heart belongs to the sounds of the first half of the decade. This retro bent, combined with the concentration on slow tunes, means All of It winds up agreeably sleepy, the kind of record that dissipates as soon as it's finished playing. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

As a partial architect of bro-country, Cole Swindell can't be expected to jettison the swaggering sound once it starts to get a little long in the tooth. As a commercially savvy songwriter, however, he knows he needs to expand his reach for a second album, which is what he does on 2016's You Should Be Here. Dialing back the party tunes that gave him number one hits, Swindell nevertheless doesn't entirely abandon his suburbanite anthems. He does, however, move his way toward minor keys and adopts hints of the looped R&B rhythms Sam Hunt popularized in 2015. Tellingly, he also embraces themes that bely a slight maturation, or at least heartbreak: he's no longer chillin' while asking a girl to dance for him, he's wishing the party wasn't over and grappling with memories that don't leave. Such ruminations mean You Should Be Here moves along at a slightly slow gait -- the one time the tempo really gets kicking is in "No Can Left Behind," a drinking song stowed away at the end -- but that does give it a casual crossover vibe, one that never suggests Swindell is gunning for the middle of the road. That slyness turns out to be his greatest asset: beneath that everyday grin he not only knows what sells, but he knows how to look like he's not selling any wares, which is the key to a successful country-pop artist. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Cole Swindell offers fans more of his signature mix of contemporary country, rock & roll, and cutting-edge pop on this sequel to his 2014 EP The Down Home Sessions. For The Down Home Sessions II, Swindell sings five more songs of good times, good music, beautiful women, cold beer, and broken hearts, accompanied by uptempo arrangements and polished production that bridge the gap between the worlds of country and pop. ~ Mark Deming
