    These songs sound like old country classics. [Aug 2012, p.96]

    This is the third album Stuart has done with this band, and they continue to find surprising and delightful ways to rev up Stuart's performances.

    On his latest, Marty meshes country with Memphis rockabilly and bluegrass-inspired background vocals throughout the disc.
  6. 70
    The singer is in fine voice and seems inspired by this outlaw move to revive the time-honored music he loved when he first hit Nashville as an impressionistic kid in 1972.

    Genre formalism is all well and good when there's genuine creativity and exploration behind it, but Tear the Woodpile Down exposes the limitations of Stuart's hardline conservatism.
