    I wish I had these songs to listen to as a younger man, because you can dance the night away to great sound, great lyrics. A perfect summer album. This Band called The Band Perry sure knows how to rock out these country songs I hear Blossom Music Center here in NE Ohio is calling you for a tour stop

    Once again, The Band Perry hits, and hits harder than ever! They're back with a really an awesome, fantastically-arranged record that'll leave the country trio fans speechless.
    The album kicks off with "Better Dog Two" (10/10), which is an awesome start. From its dark tune and its not-so-fun lyrics, we move to "DONE." (10/10), that showcases K's strong vocals and her sassy attitude. Next
    is "Don't Let Me Be Lonely"(9/10), which has an incredible chorus that could lead the song to be their biggest hit ever. Track no. 5, "Pioneer" (8/10) has a really impressive tune with the catchy "Let your heart not be troubled" bridge. "Forever Mine Nevermind"(9/10), co-written with Brad Paisly is really impressive too. The next one is not one I'm a big fan of, "Night Fine Wasted"(6/10). Then comes the AWESOME "I Saw A Light"(10/10), which is traditionally written and composed, reminds us a bit of "If I Die Young". "Mother Like Mine"(10/10) is a masterpiece I, personally, can't comment on. Moving on, "Chainsaw"(8.5/10) with its dark chorus is also good track. Next, "I'm A Keeper"(9/10) is very radio-friendly and catchy. "Back To Me Without You"(11/10 if I could...) is definitely the stand-out track that leaves you speechless on the record. And finally, "End of Time"(8/10) is a good way to end this joyful album, and it keeps the listener wondering if The Band Perry can get any better?!
    Solid record. Very well done. Keep up the awesome work, TBP!

    The album sags when the songs fall back on traditional tropes and are unable to match the performative bombast.

    The brood is most convincing on giddier kiss-offs like "Chainsaw" (rhymes with "such a shame y'all") and the Brad Paisley co-write "Forever Mine Nevermind."

    The album’s overall spirit of adventure is summed up in the gorgeous title track, written by the Perrys with fellow family trio The Henningsens. Starting sweet and delicate, it offers a message of encouragement to be bold in the face of uncertainty and doubt as it builds to a thrilling crescendo.
