  1. May not be as postcard-perfect as I Am Shelby Lynne, but it comes pretty close.
  2. 80
    Exceptional, exemplary grown-up rock. [#4, p.120]
  3. 70
    Things sometimes tip too far into conventional rock cliché -- "I Can't Wait" is too obvious a power ballad -- but for the most part, this is another display of Lynne's surprisingly agile range.
  4. Mostly all manner of shiny, happy pop.

    I was disappointed in this when it came out, but listening again recently I was surprised at how good it is.

    It's not the wonderfully soulful music of "I Am Shelby Lynne," but it is a good slick pop album. It's just disappointing knowing It's not the wonderfully soulful music of "I Am Shelby Lynne," but it is a good slick pop album. It's just disappointing knowing how much better Shelby can be.
