This is a good album though, "Rueng kluay kluay" mixes electric rock guitars with morlam and rocks along very enjoyably. "Kid dai ngai" is a much better song though and the highlight of the album, a slow and brooding lukthung track. Another enjoyable track is "Park rai tae jai ruk" which starts off sounding like 80s pop and moves into a very danceable fast tempo track. "Koong ten" starts off a slow brooding track which has some nice keyboards that moves into a good morlam song.
Ending the album is "Aow kuen" which also starts off slow and stays there. Sao Mard is a good singer to be sure able to handle fast morlam tracks and slower ballads. Her vocals are maybe not perfect but she sounds like she has had some life, a bit sultry at times, and puts that into her performance which wins with me every time. Very good album. Cowboy hat not required after all.
Best songs : Kid dai ngai, Park rai tae jai ruk, Aow kuen
