    There was much more to Stapleton than the Music Row standards he'd been cranking out for others, and Vol. 2 further confirms this suspicion. Under his own name, and own steam, Stapleton cleaves closer to the outlaw ethos of Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr and Johnny Paycheck. [Feb 2018, p.32]

    Vol. 2 was also able to capitalize on some of the weaknesses of Vol. 1. Where "Death Row" felt like a under-developed missed opportunity for an outlaw prison song, "Midnight Train to Memphis", which he formerly recorded with the Steeldrivers, comes in with rumbling ferocity as the doubled guitar/bass solos elevate the song to an instant blues-rock classic and one of Stapleton's most exciting tracks to date.

    Vol. 2 leavens its heavier moments with songs that celebrate the simple joys of love and marriage and family, without lapsing into sentimentality.
