CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Second Hand Heart is prime Dwight Yoakam: traditional yet modern, flashy yet modest, a record that feels fresh but also like a forgotten classic.

Exclaim!
This is a hard-rocking, sing-out-loud, air-guitar-in-the-mirror kind of country record.

Paste

Even if Yoakam is still using his songs to sift through the wreckage of broken relationships’ past, he’s doing it with a still-blazing fire in his belly and a huge grin barely hidden underneath his Stetson.

American Songwriter
It’s clear Yoakam is as inspired nearly 30 years into his career as ever.

PopMatters

By continuing to do what he does best, Dwight Yoakam, with Second Hand Heart, adds yet another excellent album to his nearly flawless catalog.

70
Spin

No longer angling for a hit, this veteran of the airplay succession wars continues to record some of the best music of his life.

No quite as good as his last attempt, but one of the best musicians that the genre has to offer.

A lot of rockabilly flavors in here, which is good. I've been listening to Dwight Yoakam since the nineties (we're about the same age) and I have to hear this album only once to know I'm going to like it a lot. Great for driving.
