    It's not until the seventh song that voice and material converge satisfyingly. [Jul 2005, p.115]
  2. In theory, there may be nothing wrong with a desire for mainstream acceptance, but Cantrell’s music suffers for it.
  3. Overall the mixture never quite gels, and the rasping timbre of Cantrell's voice ain't the prettiest sound you ever heard.

    Too slick and AOR for my liking. Try The Tremblin' Kind for a more gritty down to earth country album.
