Though the album is more about the lyrics than the music, damned if those lyrics aren’t some of Hood’s best—which is saying something

Heat Lightning is the most musically coherent album of Hood’s solo career, and it even sounds quite distinct from recent Drive-By Truckers releases

Heat Lightning, then, is a life-affirming album disguised as a depressing song cycle, with the gut-level power of Hood's best work cut back significantly.
