The third album by contemporary country singer Chris Cagle represents two different tendencies in his music. The first is a penchant for crossover country-pop, especially powerhouse ballads meant to pull the heartstrings, which Cagle handles with particular skill. The second and more interesting tendency is Cagle's commitment to country-rock, which comes roaring through on rollicking, honky-tonk numbers like "Hey Y'All" and his twangy revision of Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive". The mixture makes for a radio-friendly release that's also got teeth.
