    The songs chronicle wrecked relationships from all sides, with Sweeney usually coming out on the losing end.

    This Texas-bred singer knows how to convey heartfelt and complex emotions with one clever turn of a phrase.

    Sweeney just gets the economy of country songwriting and the presence that the best country singers possess, and that innate understanding makes Concrete a tremendous, heady record.

    The album is a winning mix of traditional and contemporary: her arrangements are often performed with pedal steel and electric guitar, and the age-old problems of infidelity and heavy drinking are represented with modern twists.

    Concrete is modern and polished, yet makes no attempt to disguise the influence of the Texas country tradition in its heartfelt performances.

    Concrete is gritty but so watered down by contemporary Nashville arrangements that nothing sticks.
