UB40 have consistently produced great music for over 30 years now, so to expect something ground breaking or totally new from them is a bit too much, the band are all 50 something's after all, but what they do, they do very well. The smooth, easy laid back rhythms are here in abundance, as is the quality production that we have come to expect from them post UB44.
Being a die hard appreciator of their music I will always support them, they have championed Reggae music ever since conception, so they deserve every bit of credit that comes their way, they have stayed true to their music (my god they have had their critics!!!)
I would not say this is their best work to date by any means, but it is a good album and worth the money.
Do not be misled by the country tag, this is a UB40 album. Yes, there is pedal guitar and there are country songs covered here, but that does not mean that the rhythms are not of Jamaican origin, albeit in that distinct UB40 vein. The one thing that sets this album apart from any of their earlier work, apart from one, it is totally about love, losing out on love or matters of the heart, and this is the big reason why the album works, the tone of the recording somehow could never have carried self penned lyrics such as Tyler, One in Ten or King, and that in itself shows the distinctly different direction that the band have taken.
Stand out tracks for me here are 'Blue Bilet Doux', a Brian Travers penned, heart wrenched belter, totally believable. 'Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain', a reworking of a Willie Nelson song that sits perfectly with the bands feel of their own music & 'On the Other Hand', a reworking of a Bob Dylan tune that the band did with the late Robert Palmer many years ago.

Okay lets get the Ali Campbell bit out of the way, he's been gone SIX...yes, SIX years now and as far as he's concerned...he isn't coming back. To a lot of old school fan's he is the voice of UB40, no Ali,no UB40,well,not for me.Historically speaking they often recorded song's featuring other band members on lead vocals often making Ali redundant of his role,these songs are still held to the hearts of the old school as UB40,his brother Duncan has stepped up to the mantle and filled his boots and all of a sudden people are saying "it's not UB40 anymore".....if people could get over the "Ali leaving thing" and actually listen to the new songs, they will pick up how well Duncan and Robin harmonise together, between them they have given UB40 a much smoother feel to their music,give it a try....I too am an old school fan of the UB's but I believe in being able to move on.
So they have given us a new album with a hand full of cover's of country songs aswell as some self penned numbers too. Now covering country music in a reggae style sounded cheesy to me when I first heard about their new venture....yet I have been very pleasantly surprised at how good it sounds, take a country song...record it reggae style(which UB40 are renowned for)....add pedal guitar for that country feel and "hey presto" a great and welcome return from the UB's.
My only gripe with this concept is trying to get the album back from my Dad who is a huge country music fan......never lend your music out!!!!
Well done UB40, don't leave it so long next time.

Never been into country music but UB40 again introduced me to new beautiful songs I'd never have listened to before. What a chilled out vibe they have created, definitely recommend this to anyone you won't be disappointed. Love to see these songs played live, who knows I might book tickets to se them!

this was a pretty different sort of offering from the boys, the mix of a bit of 'country and western' with the normal reggae sounds really worked, very different and very easy listening, infact i've played this on the spin around 4 times and still think its superb! Shame Ali's not still with them, but well worth buying! well done lads!!!!

The more that I play this album, the more it grows on me! UB40 have had more than their share of troubles over the last few years, but I think this album may just be a change of fortune for them. I must admit that I raised my eyebrows when I heard about their new venture into country music, but surprisingly this mix of genre works. Having read some of the earlier reviews, I think that people's expectations of the group are too high! Duncan's voice will never match Ali's but full marks to him, he sounds fantastic on this album, as does Robin's, throughout, especially on "He'll have to go". In fact, it is quite a refreshing change to hear Duncan's softer voice rather than Ali's sometimes mournful tones. This mix suits Duncan's vocal ability and suits him better than on some of the original UB40 tracks he has had to sing as Ali's replacement. The die hard fans will always remember Ali as "the Voice of UB40", but a change of direction was badly needed and this album fulfills this. Favourite tracks are "Getting over the storm", "Blue eyes crying in the rain", "Just what's killing me", "I did what I did" and " On the Other Hand", but they are all equally as good. I too am a long standing UB40 fan and was sad to see them split, but things move on. Well done UB's for taking a chance! I think that this may well pay off!
