While I'm a Fan, I'm always split on his music... Love about half the songs and not so much for the other half. I must say I've been playing the hell out of this album. I love the direction Jackson goes with this. I don't mind a little politics in my music if it's not "politically correct" bs. We'll he's definitely not politically correct and I respect him for that. Stand out tracks for me are "Old Henry Rifle - No Show - Boys in the band - Let the Bad Times Roll."
