I checked this album only because of the big hit, 'Stuck Like Glue'. I thought that this album would be good, so was it really that good? No, not even in the slightest. Some of the songs are good, but most? No. I mean, it isn't that bad, I've heard way worse, but this isn't good at all. The opener is a song called 'All We Are', which starts out with a weird-as-heck organ, then goes into the drums pounding the cymbal, then the guitars start strumming frantically. The beginning is horrible and sounds like a mess. Then goes to sounding normal, starting with a guitar riff, that still does sound really bad. Then goes to a breakdown, the thing that sounds like the beginning, only it doesn't go frantic, with the weird organ, then the chorus, back to the riff, only with a high-pitched synth in some places. Then the title track, a song that starts out with just drums, then goes to palm mute guitars, then a piano riff. Then the singer starts singing. The piano riff sounds bad, and doesn't blend well with the guitars at all, to say the guitar tones are horrible as all horrible. I might even have to say that this is my least favorite song of the album. She sings for a while, then into the chorus, then yells 'callin', and it echos and stuff, and that's the worst part, when the band quits playing. 'Find the Beat Again' is one of the worst also, with it's horrible guitar tones, that sound weird, with the bass guitar, that is trying to play stuff. Then goes into a chorus, then the second half of the chorus, the worst part of the chorus, then the break, which is the worst part of the song, playing chords as riffs, that only works for certain Rascal Flatts songs. This sounds like the big hit off Jerrod Niemann's High Noon, same as the next track, 'Wide Open', which is just as horrible, which is a slower song, and goes into the chorus with single strums, and it doesn't help matters that the guitars have horrible tones. Then goes into a full sound for the rest of the chorus, to the interlude's woah, woah, woah. The verse has the bass with a crunchy sound and the guitars doing palm mute, then after a while, a bad piano riff AGAIN, and the singer is singing very weird. Then the piano ballad 'Shine the Light', which is good, but not the best. The piano sounds kinda good on the song, but still it's nothing special. The guitars sound good on songs like 'Every Girl Like Me' and 'Little Miss', I really like the riff of 'Little Miss', and the piano on the song. The big sound of the chorus sounds good also. I like how she names all the 'little miss'es on the verses. 'Every Girl Like You' has awesome chord progressions and the bright strings of the guitar are awesome. I don't like the organ and what the guitars do on the verse, but it still ain't bad. 'Incredible Machine (interlue)' is just piano and echo on a guy singing 'callin', like the actual song, and this is the worst of the album. 'Stand Up' is kinda good, but the guitar and chord progressions aren't the best. The drums don't do anything, and it ain't the best. Then it breaks into a big sound after a while, that does sound good, with rock guitars. 'Stuck Like Glue' is the best song on the album, with the guitars and the organs, and how they go together, and the drum sounds. The chord progressions are awesome. 'Tonight' is also awesome, and the 2nd best of the album, with the key and chord progressions within that key. The guitars start with palm mute, and the acoustic guitars play soft, with the electric piano, it has a feel that it's getting louder and louder, til it breaks into the chorus, while Jennifer Nettles is holding the note that she was singing. The chorus is so much bigger, with the rock guitars, and the tonal choices of those guitars are cohesive and fit with the rest of the song. The organs are also good, and the pianos are the best on this album here. Awesome. So there only a couple of songs that I like, and the others are bad to terrible.
