  1. The incarnation of the SteelDrivers as captured on Reckless has offered one of the year's strongest country records.
  2. The tempos on Reckless are more varied than those on their self-titled debut, but even the slower tracks pack the big emotional punch that bluegrass fans love, the kind of feeling that used to make country music dangerous.
  3. What matters is that this is a really good record, and while it would have been nice to hear some instrumental breakdowns--especially from banjo player Richard Bailey, who is way understated--it's nice to know that Nashville is capable of putting out something besides more bad pop.
  4. Reckless is a swan song, punctuated with a question mark.
