You Can't Make Old Friends

You Can't Make Old Friends by Kenny Rogers
Released: Oct 2013
Label: Warner Bros.
Kenny's calling this the most diverse album of his career, and he might be right: "Turn This World Around" rocks, "Don't Leave Me in the Night Time" chases Mellencamp's zydeco side, "Merica" chases country's Mellencamp side, and the stand-out title track trades Drake for Dolly while rewriting the hook to a DJ Khaled rap hit. The album's second half, meanwhile, slows it down with a trio of ballads that face one major problem: You have to make it past the patronizing, migrant-worker-contemplates-the-American-dream midway point, "Dreams of the San Joaquin," to reach them.
