    CD Review: Eli Young Band offers easy country listening

    The hard rock-looking group on the cover of “”Jet Black and Jealous”” gives away their real genre with a lone cowboy boot. The Eli Young Band’s country music contains none of the old-time country twang, but resembles what it would sound like if Dierks Bentley started singing with Rascal Flatts.

    Lead singer Mike Eli’s smooth voice will sweep you away on a crescendo of intricate music from the very first song. The album contains a mix of slow and upbeat songs that incorporate a variety of instruments, including mandolin and harmonica.

    Whether you want a bit of easy listening or a night of two-stepping, look no further than this album.
