It's almost impossible to refrain from calling the six well-scrubbed, expertly coiffed Clark brothers country's answer to the Backstreet Boys or 'N Sync. But in fact, this type of tight harmonizing over songs celebrating love, heartbreak, and self-sufficiency has been a country staple since the Clarks -- who range in age from 16 to 23 -- were in diapers, if not before. Credit co-producers Tim McGraw and Byron Gallimore with keeping the pop flourishes to a minimum and instead kindling the soundscape on Meanwhile Back at the Ranch with earthy Dobros, fiddles, guitars, and drums. And though the Clarks are here to entertain, their songs are tough-minded enough to bear repeated listens. The swinging "Going Away" proclaims the singer's intent to hit the road for some self-discovery before life leaves him behind. On the soaring ballad "It'll Always Be You," a rich affirmation of a man's enduring love for his significant other, the Clarks reveal a lot of heart, expressing feelings that many men leave unspoken. The feisty title song, fueled by spitfire guitars, celebrates quiet time away from the rat race. Taking vocal cues from Chris Hillman and the Desert Rose Band, the Clark Family Experience begs you look beyond their carefully wrought façade and give their music a fair hearing -- an investment that'll pay off in spades.
