Eric Church's 2011 album, Chief, vaulted him to country superstar status by mixing rough-and-ready outlaw country-rock with more muted and emotional moments. For the follow-up, Church doubles down on both sides of that platinum-plus duality: the rockers here rage even harder, and the lower-key cuts are even more subtly rendered. The sneaky one-two punch of the first two tracks exemplifies this approach. The title tune is a raging outlaw anthem full of stadium-sized hard-rock riffs, but it's followed by the sparsely produced, intensely inward-looking ballad "A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young." Church manages to maintain the dynamic tension between these two poles throughout the album; "A Cold One" and "That's Damn Rock & Roll" explode with bluesy, roughneck rock licks, while "Talladega" and "Like a Wrecking Ball" stick to an impressively soulful simmer. The most strikingly ambitious track falls outside of this template, though; the eight-minute "Princess of Darkness/Devil, Devil" is an ode to surviving Nashville that starts with a poetic spoken-word piece and segues into a grinding blues-rock stomper. Now, that's how an outlaw rolls.
