    It's obvious he's grown and matured as both a songwriter and a producer, and this is the finest moment in his catalog thus far.

    While Waylon's shadow will remain a constant companion, the younger Jennings continues to prove that he's a great shot in his own right.

    Lyrically and musically, the songs stream effortlessly from accessible to intricate, creating an estimable country album with a steady undercurrent of blues and rock.

    Other textures are so skillfully woven in that it's not till the record's last moment that we see all that could've been.

    A rowdy, heartfelt country disc that would've made his late father, Waylon, proud. [16 mar 2012, p.69]

    Shooter Jennings on "Family Man" puts forward ten compositions belonging mainly to the country style. Mainly, because we also find a link to the folk in "The Deed And The Dollar", "The Black Dog" or americana "The Family Tree". Tracks holding level in terms of composition, and most importantly album is a good listen. Expand
