    However welcome it may be to hear her voice again, it's ultimately her decision to play things so safe that keeps Mother from being a wholly satisfying return.

    While Maines' singing is the glue that holds everything together, the set's overly polished production and the scattershot curation of the material makes it feel like more like just a haphazard collection of songs than a cohesive album.

    Too often, the music feels a bit limp, and the buttery harmony backups of her fellow Dixie Chicks are sorely missed. But there are some surprises.

    All very authentic and in the room.
