Hi-Res
Luke Combs' first EP for Columbia Nashville -- it's a teaser for a full-length album of the same name arriving in 2017 -- is anchored by the slow-burning "Hurricane," a ballad that takes its cues from Sam Hunt's R&B rhythms but showcases Combs' big, gruff voice. The tension between Combs' traditional side and modern inclinations is what gives This One's for You some freshness, but the EP overall shows that he tends to favor old-fashioned modes. Ironically, "Memories Are Made Of" -- a title that seems designed to invite nostalgia -- also feels a bit more modern, offering a contrast to the old-fashioned twanging rocker "Beer Can" and the closing weeper "This One's for You." Along with "Used to You" and "Hurricane" itself, "This One's for You" displays Combs' strengths as an excellent balladeer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Luke Combs' debut album, This One's for You, is anchored by the slow-burning "Hurricane," a ballad that takes its cues from Sam Hunt's R&B rhythms but showcases Combs' big, gruff voice. The tension between Combs' traditional side and his modern inclinations is what gives This One's for You some freshness and it surfaces often, including on the opening open-road anthem "Out There," which has a busier rhythm than necessary. Combs can also veer toward the middle of the country-pop road, whether it's on the breezy island vibes of "Don't Tempt Me," the cautionary tale "Be Careful What You Wish For," or "Memories Are Made Of," which has a modern gloss even though its title invites nostalgia. Despite all this, Combs seems to favor old-fashioned modes. He kicks up some dust on the twanging "Beer Can" and "Honky Tonk Highway" (the latter is the straightest barroom raver here), but he truly specializes in slower stuff like "Hurricane." Such ballads are all over This One's for You -- he simmers on "One Number Away," he conjures brokenhearted soul on the title track, and he offers a sweet, spare, backporch love song "I Got Away with You" -- and they're the songs that anchor the record while pointing toward a potentially long career for this singer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
