    Where the hell is the country? This is definately a "bookends" album. A true disappointment.

  1. To Chesney's credit, he's as appealing on this set of relaxed tunes as he was on its gleaming, ultra-modern predecessor, and taken together, they are strong proof that he's one of best singers and songwriters working in contemporary country music in the mid-'00s.
  2. Trouble is, Chesney, who wrote or cowrote all 13 tracks, ended up with enough material for only half a record, and then repeated many of his ideas.

    His sun-baked characters... are too lazy to be interesting. [28 Jan 2005, p.85]
