  1. Convinced he's some kind of rock revivalist, he's more Bob Seger, Skynyrd and Hank Jr. than anything else here. That works in his favour for most of the album, aside from a few misses like the generically foot-stompin' 'So Hot' and the gospel-infused singalong 'Don't Tell Me U Love Me.'

    Rumours of emotional maturity are exaggerated...but the reflective moments are best. [Dec 2007, p.98]

    Mostly it looks like there's a new kid in town. [Dec 2007, p.98]
  4. Jesus spits in the face of good taste with such unbridled enthusiasm that it's almost possible overlook its more cringe-inducing tendencies. Almost.
  5. The music isn't as serious: splashy and silly though it may be, at least it gets the basic sound right, even if it's way too polished and precise.
