|Clearly angling for some love from country radio, Blackberry Smoke slow things down, roll back the distortion, and add a bunch of tinkling piano and burbling organ. The performances are as classy as always, but the almust complete lack of aggression, in music and lyrics, is a huge disappointment. "Six Ways To Sunday" is far and away the best song, but other highlights are "Everybody Knows She's Mine," "Shakin' Hands With The Holy Ghost," the disc's lone stab at real heaviness in "Leave A Scar," the bittersweet (mostly bitter) "One Horse Town" and, weirdly, the very traditional-sounding "Ain't Got The Blues." "Crimson Moon" is a sanitized inversion of "Sanctified," a song about two young lovers splitting town, but this time without the impending disaster, while "Up The Road" and "Pretty Little Lie" are pussywhipped let's-make-up songs to witchy women. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em I guess, but it's such a disappointment to hear Blackberry Smoke knuckling under to conformity.|
