Love this album and can't stop listening to it!
Well done Brad
I personally like this album, very modern and up to date, with some of Brads humour in there for good measure, all in all love it. Five stars.
It grows on you
I bought this album after buying Time Well Wasted and 5th Gear. This album was Brad Paisley's attempt at doing something new and out of his comfort zone. Because of this it's very different. New elements are tried out with new concepts/messages and new additions like rap in a couple of songs. When I first listened to it I was slightly disappointed. There's a couple of tracks stand out like Southern Comfort Zone but the rest was a let down compared to his previous work. However, if you take the album for what it's intended to be, it is fresh and new. The songs still contain a lot of humour and there are still songs with cheesey but relatable lyrics (not complaining, they're my favourite).
Anyway this album may seem like a disappointment at first but grows on you. The songs are funny and relatable and it's completely different to other albums but still sounds very 'Brad Paisley'.
Paisley's Weakest Release
This is the first of Paisley's albums (apart from the Christmas one) that won't be taking up space on my hard drive. Newsflash, Brad… "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has already been done."

BEST ALBUM SO FAR BRAD
a great album from Brad Paisley, featuring excellent thought provoking as well as humourous songs ( something that has been seriously lacking of late).
this is not a traditional country album and I would not expect it to be, is features many artists on the album from many other musical genre and excells.
a fantastic addition to the Brad catalogue.
What's happened? It's not even close to his old stuff. To me the last album wasn't anywhere near as good as 'American Saturday Night' I just hope this isn't the end for Brad. Even his guitar sounds aren't as good with alot of pop songs.
Lets hope the new Keith Urban album isn't as much as a let down as this one!!
Paisley at his finest!
Brad Paisley at his finest yet again!…this is true paisley and country!
Some will like, some wont

Brad Paisley really takes us to another place with his new album.
With explicitly topical tracks on here here confronting 'elephants' regarding racism and bringing to life ever so delicately the determination of a woman confronting domestic abuse.
Brad is a fantastic guitar and pays homage (as it sounds) John Mayer in his 'Death of a single man' tack.
Overall a really great album but I must admit, I am a massive fan of Mr P but it took a few listens to adore this album.
So if your unsure listen to this album track at a time and really enjoy his riffs and lyrics.
Worth the wait
It may sound a little different from his usual stuff, but to me its one of his best. The sound has changed, but the country is still there. Hope he tours here soon!
