But being out of the spotlight gives Walker plenty of artistic freedom, as evidenced by his seventh CD, SAY NO MORE.This wildly diverse album touches on nearly every style of country music, from honky-tonk to Western swing, not to mention Tex-Mex, power ballads, and Christian country. What holds it all together are Walker's stellar vocals--one minute he's Ritchie Valens reborn on a faithful, Spanish language remake of "La Bamba," the next he's a latter-day Merle Haggard, honky-tonkin' his way through "Rough Around the Edges." Other highlights include the hard-country weeper "Can I Ask You Not to Dance," and the title track, with its complex yet catchy melody. Too much stylistic variation isn't usually advisable for a country artist, but for Walker, whose ability to fly beneath the radar prevents him from being painted into a corner artistically, it works just fine. SAY NO MORE is a thoroughly enjoyable collection from a talented singer who deserves a higher profile.
