Tim Young Band's 'The Cost' is the perfect summertime soundtrack. It feels best to listen to it while sitting in front of a campfire, surrounded by company but alone with your thoughts. Every fleeting idea of pain, loss, and confusion come to full circle on each track, bringing to light the themes we all need to spend time thinking about. The single 'The Cost' tugs right at your heart-strings with fully-charged, emotive lyrics like 'Now the night is sawin' at my heart...nobody knows the cost of losing you.' Moving forward from the pain of loss, this twang-y, sorrowful lament about heartbreak infuses country-western rock to create a catchy melody. Nike Air Max Sale 'Outta Town' adds the electric guitar and makes you imagine what it would be like to just run away from all your problems as Young lists daily hassles we all deal with, such as traffic, landlords, and stresses from work.One of the strongest songs, with the best intro, is 'Drifting Cowboy.' With sliding guitar riffs, the vocals slow down, providing a nice tune to meditate to, amidst your confusion. While listening, you can actually envision a cowboy alone on the ranch, gazing out at Nike Air Max 1 the flat land ahead, wondering where to go. Creating an original story on this track, Young tells the tale of a young cowboy from Alabama who quit school: Cheap Nike Air Max 1 'Rejection filled his cup until he landed on the stage in Nashville.' As Young switches to first person with 'I'm a drifting cowboy,' we have to wonder if Young himself is the drifting cowboy. Either way, the story is nothing short of riveting.Just For You' has a nostalgic feel to it, bringing Elvis' generation of country/rock back to the mainstream music scene with strumming guitar and wailing, honest vocals: 'I'd shine every night just for you / I can see just what I need to do.' 'Remember' certainly has an Elvis attitude, with its 'bad boy' tone shining through: 'And even when I write these words / I don't understand the past.' The track presents a concept any listener can understand: being at a crossroads of the past and present, trying to decipher what's happened before in order to know where to go in the future.On 'Hangin' In,' Young sings the blues, country-style, telling middle class woes of trying to get by, while inspiring listeners to keep their heads up: 'It's a long road every day / everyone I know says they're hangin' in.' Shifting the album's tone, on 'Cold Wind' Young introduces the theme of being, as Bob Dylan sings, 'Blowin' in the wind': 'Cold wind keeps on blowin' me around; cold wind spins the truth right through the ground.'Renegade' fittingly closes the album, since after moving from a wandering cowboy, to a lost soul, to the dust blowing through the cold wind, Young advances to a renegade: a proud, brave man advancing forward Nike Air Max UK through nature and city scenes alike, ready to dominate whatever environment he finds himself in. Without looking back, and with his eyes always set straight ahead, Young proves the ability that we all have to completely move on past the painful yesterdays and transform ourselves into powerful individuals that we never thought we could become. Then, truly, the cost of the pain becomes inconsequential; all that matters are the rewards reaped from the incredible growth process that we all are able to enter and emerge from.The Cost' forces listeners to ask themselves, 'Where am I? Where have I been? How does it all make sense?' And more importantly, 'Where am I going?' But by the time the CD stops spinning, you realize, thanks to the Tim Young Band, that, no matter what the answers are, everything's going to be all right.
