    Only a nine because there are few tens out there! Lyle has a full pantry and likes it that way. This effort supports his true form and what he believes in. Entertaining and well done. All true fans will rate this as one of his best and the casual observer will not be disappointed either. Kudos Cowboy!

  1. As before, Lyle gravitates toward gentle, moody songs, with Tommy Elskes' slyly sarcastic blues, 'Bohemia,' being the liveliest of the bunch, opting to give Natural Forces some humor and tempo through his originals.
  2. The cover tunes--written by the likes of Townes Van Zandt, David Ball, and Vince Bell--are lovely and haunting. At the same time, you may wish Lovett hadn't left all the lyrical heavy lifting to his Lone Star compatriots.
  3. Far more than just a curator and tasteful interpreter of others’ material, Lovett once again proves he can stand alongside the finest storytellers.
