Now, it seems that "I'm to Blame," is the actual lead single for his next project (though some indications are that "Young Love" and another song "Dirt Road" may be part of the second album).
Where does "I'm to Blame" fall in the spectrum of Moore's music?
It's certainly better than "Something 'Bout a Truck," but that's not exactly a stretch. That was a pretty horrid song. Sonically, it bears some resemblance to "Beer Money," though there may be more of an actual country element to this new song.
Thematically, very little new ground is broken here as our narrator sings about how if something isn't broke, he'll break it, if there's a wrong road, he'll take it, and for anything that goes wrong, he's likely the one to blame. Most of these exact lines have been used before, in one form or another.
Despite it's lack of originality, it's not a bad listen. It's enjoyable. Honestly, though, clocking in at only two minutes and seventeen seconds, it may be more of a burden to change the station than to just let the time pass. I think that I want to like this song. Musically, it's actually a pretty decent song, but there's not much to the lyrics to make you want to come back for more. It's not hard to listen to. It's just that there's really not that much special about it, either.
