The Earps: Get a Room
Best Song: "Mancrush" is an entire song dedicated to having pretty big man-crushes Burt Reynolds, Dwight Yoakam and Gram Parsons. It's a noble gesture, but the best track on the album has to go to "Get a Room." The song is one of the better on the album musically and isn't nearly as hokey/corny as some other tracks. It still features the scraggly, unpolished vocals of Hotwheels McGregor (ugh), but it manages to separate itself from some of the other trite, pointless fare on Get a Room.
