Label: Reprise
In case there was any question, "Same Fool" will reassure anyone afraid that Yoakam may have lost his touch with country music songwriting. Despite 1998 production styles, the song has more in common with the salad days of the Bakersfield sound than new country. "The Curse," "These Arms" and "That's Okay" could just as easily have come out on '70s-era George Jones records. "Maybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't" sounds like an Elvis Presley song, and "Traveler's Lantern" has a Louvin Brothers-style close harmony.
