  1. A solid old-school effort with a Ph.D. in pain. [20 May 2005, p.77]
  2. A refreshingly honest outing that still maintains a high fun factor. [15 May 2005]
  3. Part of his appeal is that he's never totally believable: on previous albums, you had the feeling that he wasn't quite as hard as he first seemed; on this one, you get the feeling he's not quite as soft. [16 May 2005]
  4. 60
    Keith and co-writer Scotty Emerick can't resist country cliches, but at least they use them brilliantly. [Jul 2005, p.118]
  5. Honkytonk University is one missed opportunity after another.
  6. The most downbeat record he's ever made, with none of his usual humor. [19 May 2005, p.81]
