By Cafe on the Corner, the members of Sawyer Brown had essentially (i.e., for recording purposes at least) given up on being rock 'n' rollers and revealed themselves to be a pretty decent country band. "Cafe on the Corner" paints a graphic picture of small-town desolation, but these guys are smart enough to avoid preaching: most of the album reflects the marvels of love. The rock & roll sneaks back in on the last two cuts, but by then it's too late to matter. A album filled with good songs, it also includes a great one (Mac McAnally's "All These Years"). ~ Brian Mansfield
