Sex and Gasoline is the thirteenth studio album of Rodney Crowell. The album peaked at number 38 on country album charts and 35 on the independent album chart and was nominated for a Grammy award in the category of Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album.

In these songs he also investigates what it means to be a man who tries - and fails a lot - to empathize with and respect women in a culture that, whether it admits it or not, hates them.

Rodney Crowell has been on quite a run of late, recording three straight albums that rank among the strongest, smartest country records of the decade. So to say that his latest, Sex and Gasoline, isn’t quite up to the level of its predecessors is to say that it’s merely one of the strongest, smartest country albums of the year. That isn’t to say that the album isn’t without its charms (Crowell is a more convincing, culture-savvy wiseass than most singer-songwriters half his age), just that it only approaches the same heights of its glorious opening run when it feels as though Crowell isn’t trying quite so hard.

Sex & Gasoline (Yep Roc). Often praised as the Lone Star State's Bob Dylan, Rodney Crowell's genuine and personal narratives achieve blunt impact courtesy of producer Joe Henry's live studio approach on Crowell's 14th proper release. The opening trifecta of Townes Van Zandt-channeling "Moving Work of Art," the biting title track, and searing indictment in "The Rise and Fall of Intelligent Design" sets the disc's theme of unraveling female cultural constraints and represents the Houston Kid at his best.
