I think this is a very good album. I've managed somehow to miss Gretchen Wilson's music up to now and this is the first album of hers that I've heard and I'm very impressed.
There is a real mix of styles here. There is a strong country tinge throughout, but there are elements of rock, jazz and blues which make for a fine, varied programme with a binding vein of her individual style. I found echoes of all sorts of people here in different places - Janis Joplin and even Rod Stewart among others, and Still Rollin' could have come straight off a Jackson Browne album - and I see that some people are unhappy that her style isn't as Country as before. All I can say is that I think this is a good collection of songs in styles I like, very well performed.
Gretchen Wilson has a fine, slightly rough-edged voice which she can use very tenderly sometimes, with a wry wit in songs like Grandma and with a raw, blazing power when needed in songs like the excellent Well Run Dry. The band is excellent and the production exactly right, in my view. I think some of the later songs are a little weaker and I'm not at all keen on her duet with Josh Malter on My Truck, but that may be just my taste. Overall this is a very good album and I'd recommend it warmly to anyone who likes country-tinged rock.
