Eli Young Band made their major-label debut with Jet Black & Jealous, an album that stretched the definition of contemporary country music to include pop melodies and rock & roll guitars. The band does the same on this follow-up release. By a long shot, the best song here is the opening number, a revamped version of Will Hoge's "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" that smoothes down the original's rough edges and beefs up the chorus with three-part harmonies. Other highlights include the Top 40 hit "Crazy Girl" and the Sister Hazel-ish "Every Other Memory."
