Q (4/02, p.131) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...If you like your beer with a shot and your guitars strictly pedal steel, stick this in your '67 Chevy."

Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.43) - "...The rock edge and attitude that [he] brought to the table marked him out from the country crowd straight away....a landmark debut."

A much-loved album that is one of the key records in the development of "new country". The image of the immaculate, conservative, singing cowboy was completely ruined by Earle. He was bad, he loved substance abuse and he played loud, dirty, rock 'n' roll-laced country rock. Through all the past excess he has emerged a survivor, and is in reality the Bruce Springsteen of "new country". He sings of ordinary life and pick-up trucks instead of pink Cadillacs. "Someday" highlights the perils of being trapped in a small town, with the last line giving some hope: "someday I'll put her on that interstate and never look back".
