It's been a long time since this country band released an album. But for fans of their previous efforts, it's like stepping back in some late-'80s or early-'90s country time warp. Led by singer Bill McCorvey, songs about drinking and cheating and typical country music fodder are in abundance here. "Drinkin' Money" is a safe and slick country tune that could have fallen out of Tim McGraw's or Dierks Bentley's back pocket. Rarely slipping over four minutes, the songs are ear candy and radio-friendly, such as the toe-tapping "Kickin' Up Dust" that brings to mind the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. The band slow things down for the warm title track ballad that is adequate but not outstanding. Fortunately, the band hasn't lost its sound nor McCorvey his voice as the song would fit nicely on an album by the Bellamy Brothers. Some numbers come off quite stale and hokey, especially the insipid and tedious "Fish Bait" that might be pulled off by Jimmy Buffett. Other efforts are marginally better such as "Is That Country or What" but again is full of surefire country clich‚s. Following another average ballad, the band tries to push the envelope slightly with "A Nickel's Worth of Your Love" which is good in a Travis Tritt kind of way. But McCorvey speaks his way through the bridge, leaving a bad taste in the listener's mouth. One of the few songs that rises above the rest is the rollicking and groovy, party-flavored "Rollin'," a number the group are well-oiled to nail perfectly. Another fine track is the mid-tempo "I Wouldn't Change a Thing" that looks back at one's life as does "Me." The finale "A Snowman in Birmingham" is just a tad too melodramatic and sappy. ~ Jason MacNeil
