    The 13 songs, written between 1972 and 2001, show off the range and subtlety of Lowe's songwriting.

    [An] affectionate charity project to benefit the victims of floods and fires in Tennessee and Texas. [Dec 2012, p.95]

    Regardless of who is singing, or what they're singing, on Lowe Country Nick Lowe's wit, heart and humanity are always on display.

    The rebelliousness and playfulness promised and hoped for are glaringly absent and the listener is, unfortunately, left with a collection of songs that wouldn't sound out of place coming from the speakers of your local Starbucks.

    Not bad, and nice for Nick. But for every good 'un, there's a dull 'un too.

    Sometimes things get a little too sweetly sleepy, but at its best this is a handsome, enjoyable listen.

    While Lowe Country tries, it rarely satisfies.
