Gord Bamford

Is It Friday Yet? (Cache/Sony)

Australian-born Albertan Gord Bamford returns with his fifth and best album yet. Is It Friday Yet? will definitely not disappoint his loyal fans.

Akin to previous efforts by the multiple Canadian Country Music Award winner, Bamford again demonstrates his unique ability to craft radio-friendly songs that are actually country. Bamford co-wrote and co-produced all 13 tracks and with Byron Hill has decorated them tastefully with flourishes of piano, fiddle, steel, Dobro, mandolin and banjo. All the usual country themes get a visit from Bamford -- rural life, love, loss, family alongside anthems for the working man (the title track) and the self-explanatory Farm Girl Strong. Leaning on a Lonesome Song is a highly intoxicating ballad boasting the most contemporary spirit and production.

Fans of George Strait, Alan Jackson and even Merle Haggard will all find something to make them hit repeat again and again. 'Ö'Ö'Ö1/2

-- Bruce Leperre
