    Shift[s] between singer/songwriter Rhett Miller's heartrending country and mojo-fueled power pop. [Sep 2004, p.120]
  3. Old 97's have become synonymous with infectious melodies and whip-smart lyrics, and they don't disappoint on album number five. [#7]
  4. 70
    There's an effortless clip... that suggests renewed confidence. [Mar 2005, p.93]
  5. Miller's plaintive vocals sell you on the sincerity of his damaged goods.
  6. The Old 97's are a good band, but Drag It Up simply isn't them at their best.
