I must admit when I saw the glossy airbrushed cover I was afraid that Heather had decided to try the Faith Hill route to bigger sales, but those fears were dispelled within a few seconds of putting the CD on (and indeed she has a bit of a dig at Faith and her ilk on "Nashville's gone Hollywood"). This is more top quality honky tonk, sounding as fresh and pure as ever. Stand outs include the title track, "Big cars" and "Little Miss Homewrecker" and the duet with Dwight, but apart perhaps from the cover of "Cry me a river" there isn't a weak track on here. Not quite as brilliant as "Heartaches and honky tonks" but not many albums are - still well worth adding to your collection.
What on earth possessed the record company to put this image on the front of this CD? Don't get me wrong, Heather Myles is a fine looking woman but she certainly doesn't need the Carrie Underwood look to sell her music (I actually turned the booklet round and use the rear picture - Heather looking more like we know and love her, playing her guitar).
The music inside though lets you know that Heather is still the same! Stick the CD on and the first five tracks will win you over to being a Heather Myles fan for life - "Sweet Talk & Good Lies", "Nashville's Gone Hollywood", "Never Had A Broken Heart", "One Man Woman Again", and the duet with Dwight Yoakam, "Little Chapel" - all excellent. The two cover versions - "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" and "Cry Me A River" are perhaps the two weakest tracks on the album, but these are more than made up for by "Big Cars", "Homewrecker Blues", and "Sweet Little Dangerous".
Marvellous stuff - you'd be foolish to miss this one!!
