Thanks man. You're definitely right. Big Dad Ritch is convincing as hell and that's the key to this band's credibility. Also, the fact they improved their song craft is important for me. The choruses are just massive on these songs. Take the title track for example.

I definitely like the stoner groove in the title track. But my favorites (for the moment) would be Hands Up (the drive), Outlaw (the nod to Skynyrd) and Paw Paw Hill (cool use of acoustic guitar). Turn It Up and especially Think of Me are -imho- one step too far in their search for melody. If they could fill those small holes in the road next time around, it would really be a hammer.

Think Of Me is a great ballad imo, but I agree Turn It Up isn't one of the best things they've written. I'd also add Sex and Drugs and Rock'n'Roll to the highlights. Once again, a very strong refrain and generally a darker take on a rock anthem. Don't Come Lookin' also stands out, not only because of its country influence. It's a really well-written Southern rock track.

Don't even know why but I suddenly remembered this existed. Good god the lyrics blow but I can appreciate the southern grooves. Definitely better than Hellyeah but also much, much worse than Black Label Society.

I live in Texas so I am astonished to not have heard of this before
