SouthSxityFive (Atlantic, 1998)


Reviewed by Jeffrey B. Remz

A bunch of youthful, well-groomed guys make up the quintet. And in this age of teeny pop, why shouldn't that happen to country as well? Aside from the looks, the quintet mines a radio friendly with an easy going, driving, sometimes ear candy sound. Collin Raye or Billy Dean would be at home with these songs. While the boys sing well enough, one gets the distinct feel this is a manufactured, generic sound. "Uncle Hickory's General Store" throws down the name "Haggard" as if to give them some street cred, but call this the N-Sync or Backstreet Boys sound for the country set.
