The Chicks have gotten away from what used to make them really good. Plenty of fiddle, mandolin, etc. COUNTRY!! It's really hard to find any real country anymore. Just Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, and George Strait. By the way, isn't the name "CHICKS" sexist??
I loved the Chicks since I saw them perform at the Mesquite Balloon fest however many years ago. Have every album including Courtyard Hounds. Waited years for this album and am so disapointed. Over indulgent bs, utilizing every cliche out there. They can sing, they can play, they can write. Let's use those talents next time.
I heard it and was very disappointed. Very low quality compared to their previous albums, the themes of this album are their pathetic attempts at staying relevant. Time to retire Dixie Chicks!
Was hoping it would be classic Dixie Chicks music. Very disappointed. Wish I could get my money back. Listened while driving and kept skipping to next song, hoping it would get better. Nope!!
Always been a fan. Chicks are super talented and this doesn’t disappoint. If an album has a song or two I want to play over and over again I’m happy. This album has four. It starts and finishes on incredible high notes. Hope there is a tour... someday.
Pre-ordered the whole album. When it became avalable, downloaded it. Almost every song jumps into the next without finishing--and not in a way that seems planned or clever. Whoever quality controlled this before it's release should be fired. This is unlistenable as released. From what I can hear of the music, it's certainly written by artists that have lived some life. Sophisticated lyrics, subtle word play. Looking forward to listening when the tracks have been fixed.
What a stellar return. So many great songs on this collection including Sleep at Night, Best Friend's Wedding, and Young Man (great lyrics to the latter). This album gets better with every listen. While some of the song don't immediately grab you, the more you listen they really start to stand out. Unfortunate that it took 14 years to get new music but the wait was worth it.
This album is still pretty good. The best songs are where they harmonize and there is a little less Natalie. “For Her” is a standout song, as well as “Set Me Free.” “Juliana Calm Down” is the worst song- too much speaking- though it does have a positive message to young women. There is not enough of their signature violin and banjo/dobro in this album.
This is more “pop-y” than some of their old work, but people are allowed to evolve and change their sound, especially when it’s done right like this album. I’m happy to have this to listen to and can feel the soul in the music. This is something I have always loved about The Chicks and pray it keeps coming!
I was a fan for years and years ever since the hot sunny days on stages in Dallas when their music was so fun. They are so talented but it’s sad that they’re going the route of sellouts for “relevancy” to make a buck. Good luck with that new name of yours Chicks....it’s not a good choice for grown Texas women to discount yourselves a chick always mad about your own bad choice of a man. So sad.
I love your older stuff,Traveling Soldier being one of my favorites. I think you should have kept the Dixie in your name, it is who you are and will always be to me. Personally I think country radio did you wrong, Nashville too. Glad you guys are making music again although this was not my favorite music from y’all, but I’m still a fan and happy y’all are marching forward
They’re back! They really are living up to the name change! And who knew changing the ch to a d is all they had to do. And good for them! It’s about time they finally felt comfortable being who they are and showing the world who they really are. It takes a lot of work to live up to their name change and it’s wonderful to see them rise to the challenge. And their looks live up to it, too!
