  • Summary: Oklahoma's Toby Keith returns with 12 new tracks, including a duet with Willie Nelson.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. Most of this album is tuneful singer/songwriterism, particularly on the second side, where this album really takes off with a series of rolling, melodic, acoustic-based songs that truly demonstrate that Keith can be a sturdy, memorable songwriter.
  2. Toby Keith has developed into a superstar for a reason, and he keeps getting better.
  3. Much of the material on this album far surpasses anything he has done previously.
  4. For the most part, Unleashed puts the grits and gravy back into mainstream country.

    What this needs is a shot of Keith's humor, largely MIA here. [26 July 2002, p.69]
  6. Sadly, Keith's least-clever disc yet was almost completely written by him for the first time.

    Nashville at its most belligerently formulaic. [Nov 2002, p.105]

    I just wanted to comment on Toby's use of the war to make money and his disrespect for other religions and for encouraging hate towards I just wanted to comment on Toby's use of the war to make money and his disrespect for other religions and for encouraging hate towards people with differences. You can't label everyone of the same religion as bad and act like it is funny to drop bombs on them. That kind of thinking is no better than terrorism. The title of ShockandY'all shows he is trying to profit over many people's loss of life. Toby you seem like a fake to me. Expand
