For a band that opens its album with the battle cry β€œLong live the car-crash hearts!” FOB know exactly who their real fans are and make no concessions to non-fans at all.

The tunes don't always hold up. But the best ones are impossible to dislike.

Replace the sleepy stuff with more songs like “My Moon,” and The Reminder would have been killer.

Lambert stormed the country charts with the incendiary "Kerosene" in 2005. Now she tops herself on what will likely remain the country album of the year.

Fogerty's documentary roots rock was always rebel music, a counterculture of factory-floor politics via Hank Williams and Dale Hawkins. Revival is no rerun. It is Fogerty getting back to work.
