Customer Review

This is the second Pistol Annies album, in which Miranda Lambert is the most famous member, but Ashley Monroe and Angeleena Presley share in writing and singing all the songs. There are no covers or songs written by others here. The music is excellent, and is about as country as you're likely to find recorded on a major Nashville label these days.

Among the songs, some of them come across as fun songs that possibly hide serious issues. Hush hush, released as a single, is about a family with one member coming out of rehab. Unhappily married, a song that a lot of people could identify with, is about a marriage that has problems but not enough to cause a split. Both of these songs are presented in a fun, entertaining way. Another fun song, but without any issues, is Being pretty ain't pretty. It is about the time and money that women sometimes spend on looking good.

The most serious songs here are Trading off one heartbreak for another, about a couple breaking up leaving the child fatherless, and Dear sobriety, about alcoholism. However, even these songs are done very differently from the way that (for example) Tammy Wynette would have done.

Yes, this is a fun, modern country album that sometimes but not always draws on traditional themes, presenting them in a way that most contemporary listeners want to hear, but which should also appeal to older listeners who enjoy top quality music without worrying too much about categories.
