Mark JungersMore Like a Good Dog Than a Bad Cat (American Rural)
He's a local contemporary of Adam Carroll and Owen Temple, but Mark Jungers doesn't quite possess the same naturally astute songwriting talent as those two. On his sixth disc, Jungers continues with a sturdy brand of country rock, and a few cuts, like the dusty ramble "50 Head," stick with a penetrating insight. Still, there's little to distinguish Jungers from a thousand other country-rock enthusiasts. He's not tiring; he simply doesn't inspire a return visit.
