Fresh yet traditonal country songs are a breath of fresh air from so much "country pop" that is out there. Brad's exceptional guitar playing give even more credibility to his down to earth, too good to be true old fashioned country music, while not alienating it from a younger crowd.
Lyrics — 8
Typical country lyrics. Mostly songs about love, loss and some more mature themes throughout. Yet he has a way of keeping the lyrics fresh.
Overall Impression — 9
This album has become a classic among true country music fans and is almost too perfect to be true. Each song has its own place and flows together nicely. Paisley has a way of writing modern yet oddly traditional songs which probably accounts for a lot of his popularity, not to mention his exceptional guitar talents. Young or old, anyone will find something to enjoy in this album.
