  1. On Feel That Fire he's found the midpoint between mirth and mope, as characteristic country barn-burners like the screw-it-'n'-drink sing-along of 'Sideways' mingle with themes of faith and fidelity to generate his most complete album yet.
  2. Dierks Bentley wants to be everything to every country-music fan, and for the most part, he pulls it off.
  3. His exceptional new album has plenty of sex and senoritas, but also a higher calling on the uplifting 'It's a Beautiful World,' a duet with Patti Griffin.
  4. The album would be an enjoyable enough lightweight ride without those moments, but when they come, they are welcome. They also give the album an air of missed opportunity.
  5. Feel That Fire has its fun moments ...But Bentley--a plain vocalist-- needs great tunes to hold your interest, and his songwriting slips here.
  6. Mr. Bentley still never colors far outside the lines, and his already smooth voice has been polished to a sheen here.
  7. Having good taste in collaborators and influences doesn't make up for how often Bentley repeats himself here though, and it isn't enough to keep Feel That Fire from being more than a tremendous disappointment.
