Perhaps even more impressive than George Strait's astounding number of platinum albums and chart-topping singles is his uncompromising consistency; TWANG is yet another welcome set of same sort of finely crafted, traditionally-rooted country music that Strait spent decades refining. That said, there are a few surprises. One is that the veteran singer wrote several songs on TWANG with his son Bubba, including the steel guitar-laden hit single weeper "Living for the Night." Additionally, "El Rey" marks the first time that Strait recorded a complete song in Spanish. Tracked in Key West, Florida, the album reflects the area's relaxed attitude, with Strait's trademark warm vocals wrapping themselves around the top-notch material with an easy confidence and down-home spirit.
