    Chesney returns to that reflective, often acoustic, place for Life on a Rock and again hits a high-water mark.

    This feels fuller, richer than any Chesney album in recent memory, but it's also unhurried and light, an ideal soundtrack for a long, lazy summer.

    Aside form one misguided reggae experiment, Chesney sounds right at home here. [10 May 2013, p.67]

    Ultimately, Life on a Rock’s most exciting moments come when Kenny pushes his limits on something unusual

    Life on a Rock ultimately seems less like a beach party album than Chesney stretching out with his ghosts.
  6. 50
    Chesney's tone-deafness here seems especially egregious because it's surrounded by better, smarter material.

    The results are mostly dismal, making for the sort of album that reinforces faith in big, lumbering institutions that understand starmaking.
