  1. It may not be country, but that doesn't matter; When the Sun Goes Down is winning, sturdy mainstream pop.
  2. Chesney doesn't go in much for lyrical subtlety or artfulness but sticks to a heart-on-sleeve directness that makes his a characteristically American voice.
  3. Chesney shows development here as a writer, and past success ensures him top-shelf material.
  4. Finds him singing as the no-sweat superstar he's become.

    Songs about island escapes and carefree postadolescence abound. [6 Feb 2004, p.140]

    So easygoing they're like going nowhere, his voyages to the beaches, beers and frathouse memories are easier journeys than the saccharine mountaineering that occupies the rest of the disc. [May 2004, p.119]
