|To say this is "southern rock" might even be a bit of an understattement, as in more than a few places, it's almost country-rock. Reminds me of the Four Horsemen's second album (Gettin' Pretty Good At Barely Gettin' By) as well as some hard country like the Kentucky Headhunters or something. It's all extremely well done, though, so you gotta give 'em that. My one beef is with the lyrics, which get a little too close to the garbage you hear on today's country radio. You know, all that 'simple pleasures of life" crap, with no real edge or element of danger. Their first album, Bad Luck Ain't No Crime, the songs weren't as refined, but the lyrics could be a little darker. And I'm not usually a big stickler for lyrics, but these are very upfront in the mix and meant to be understood. Anyway, most of the songs are infectious enough that any cheesy lyrics can be somewhat overlooked.|

|My favorites are the ridiculously catchy party anthem "Good One Comin' On," the very Four Horsemen-like "Shake Your Magnolia," the re-recorded "Sanctified Woman," and the disc's heaviest track, "Up In Smoke."|

|I stand by my comment from six years ago. Musically, this is Blackberry Smoke's best album, but lyrically, they start to play it safe and dumb it down with songs about ditching work to go fishing, or pleading with the little woman for "just one beer" after work. In another song, Charlie Starr shows what an untamed wild man he is by bragging about drinking milk from the carton. But hey, elsewhere you get a hillbilly T&A song and a couple celebrations of road-dog debauchery. "Good One Comin' On" is a standard "backwoods party" country song, name-dropping Shiner beer, Patron tequila, Lucky cigarettes, Ford Mustangs, Igloo coolers, and Ray Wylie Hubbard--but it's so goddamn fun and catchy, it's possible to overlook all the box-checking and product placement. Point being: if you're going to get one Blackberry Smoke album to try, it should be this one.|
