||Creative and good music|
This is good music and a intelligent album. I will go back and buy some of his other CDs.

||Rodney has done it again|
When I first listened to this album, I thought, man this is heavy stuff. But after a few listens, I started to understand just what this album is all about. And for sure Rodney is at a point in his life where he is embracing lifes deepest issues. The music and musicianship is absolutely fantastic. And after several listens, I realise what an incredible album this is. Rodney is a natural tunesmith and with a compliment of excellent musicians, you get a wonderful album. Highly recommended. Kevin.

||This is a great album!|
This is one of my favorite albums of 2003. The songs are so good and my favorites includes Fate's Right Hand, Earthbound, The Man In Me, and Still Learning How To Fly. The whole album is great and I can listen to it over and over. I hope that Rodney Crowell does another album like this one soon!

||Falls short of Rodney, but any Rodney's good|
As a long time fan of Rodney's, I like anythying he does. The best part of this CD is the "keeping-it-simple" arrangements and production. As a 50 year old man, I can appreciate much of what he has to say on this CD. The message is good. At times the writing is brilliant, but at other times it is very sophomoric and, in my opinion very much below what I know Rodney can write. I felt that at times, the lyrics were rushed, and not crafted carefully in the way Rodney can do. But, as I said before, if you're a Rodney fan as I am, you'll like this CD. I wish he would get away from the political and write like he has to attract attention to himself as an un-discovered writer has to do. I know. He's been there and done that, and he deserves to just write about whatever he wants to, but in my opinion, he's a better writer when he makes his lyrics more universal. Love 'ya Rodney. Tim.

||What happened to the music?|
Crowell has made what is possibly his least satisfying album of his entire career. Lyrically it is his most personal offering till now, but the new CD lacks the heartfelt songs, careful arrangements and strong musical backing that made “The Houston Kid” such a rewarding comeback for an artist, who is still America’s best songwriter. Much of his fame has been built on his reputation as a superb songwriter and producer, usually in the fields of country and rock, and at the same time maintaining a low key solo career, that was quickly overshadowed by the success of his former wife, Rosanne Cash. The record opens up nicely enough though with “Still Learning How To Fly,” - and along with “It’s A Different World Now” and & “Come On Funny Feeling – these tunes sum up the best of what Crowell is capable of music-wise, proving what an incredible songwriter he still is. Strong melodies, lyrics filled with emotion and thoughtful arrangements. But the rest of this batch of songs are lost somewhere along the line, tracks with subdued playing – at times almost non-existing. Lyrics about life and death (literally) abound and Crowell points his finger at America and himself a lot of the time, but it all comes to nothing in the end, really. Next time it would be nice if Rodney Crowell released an album with a less pessimistic outlook of how he sees himself and the rest of the world. We just can’t do without him!
