    Oddly, the title track, a low-key ballad, is the least satisfying song on offer here. It's the only aberration. [Summer 2013, p.94]

    The Other Life checks in at the expected redneck haunts, but with the lyrical verve of writers from further afield.

    Box these sounds whichever way you want to, but they are all Shooter Jennings, and as music, The Other Life is all killer, no filler.

    The Other Life is a showpiece for Jennings' familial knack for outlaw-country hell-raising.

    Here he achieves immediate take-off with a version of Nilsson's The Flying Saucer Song that could fit neatly on The Dark Side Of The Moon without too many people noticing. [Aug 2013, p.92]
