    Bloody Brilliant!! Anybody that doesn't like this album just doesn't get it. Dark, moody, melancholy in the tradition of Hank Williams, George Jones, Gram Parsons, and Emmy Lou Harris, the music is at the same time current and fresh. Moorer and her sister, Shelby Lynne, are making albums that show what country music can be rather than the generic, commercial pablum made by most Bloody Brilliant!!

    It's a richly textured album, often filled with a melancholy that suits Moorer's dark, rich voice just perfectly.

    Relative to her potential, she remains an underachiever, straitjacketed by Nashville craftsmanship in writing and arrangement. [Oct 2002, p.104]
  3. The strength Moorer has shown from first album to second album and finally to this genre-leaping experiment in self-recreation is enough to not only merit a listen, but to make sure we pay attention to the fourth album when it arrives.
