Like most of country music's radio stars throughout the years Dierks Bentley has the ability to melt audiences hearts with a tender ballad and that's precisely what he seemingly is doing with his latest single, the steel-guitar-laced "I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes." It's a nice ballad and will no doubt be a big hit at country radio but one has to wonder if Dierks isn't playing it a bit safe at this point, particularly when "Beautiful World," a striking duet with Patty Griffin, fits a similar laid-back mood but is a much better song and another mid-tempo song "You Hold Me Together" features a romantic lyric but is melodically more interesting. Don't get me wrong, I still do like the tender side of Dierks but he's much more than his last two (or three) radio singles make him out to be.
