  1. Though its style alone makes it a sure bet to be hailed as progressive by those who only like country music that doesn't sound a damn thing like country music, and just as sure to be reviled by country music purists, the real problems with the album are with its failures of execution and its inexplicable aesthetic choices.

    The downhome strum of "Stuck Like Glue" has a certain charm--at least until its horrific cod-dancehall break down--but fails to redeem a depressingly calculated record. [Mar 2011, p.101]

    This album is underrated. Most critics give this a low rating because it doesn't sound like country music. Well, I'm no critic, but I didn't know an album had to sound country to be good. This is Sugarland's fourth studio album and a great attempt at country/rock music. From opening to close, every song on here is enjoyable. Jennifer Nettles gives a great vocal performance on every track and every song feels different from the last. So tell me that the critics are right when this album has already gone platinum in the days when an album is lucky to go gold. Full Review »
