  1. These songs aren't knockouts, but they're friendly and comfortable, the kind of sturdy roots-pop that seems like it'd be easy to pull off but must not be, as this delicate balance of conversational melody and guy-next-door appeal has proven elusive to Rucker for over a decade now
  2. Learn to Live is well-produced and well-sung, but too many of the songs fail to fit the artist behind them.
  3. While Looking for Lucky incorporated some traditional elements into Hootie's brand of bland frat-boy rock, Learn to Live is strictly a mainstream country effort, and that doesn't always work to Rucker's advantage.

    Awesome CD. Darius does a great job jumping into the country genre. Critics hate "If I Had Wings," but I think it's a beautiful song. My Awesome CD.

    Awesome album. Saw him in 1992 in a bar in Columbia SC and knew he was going to be a big star!
