In retrospect, Social Distortion singer/songwriter Mike Ness making this album seems like an inevitability. It was Ness's country sensibilities that helped make Social Distortion one of the most unique West Coast punk bands, so this album of (mostly) C&W covers (his second solo effort) seems a long time coming. To his credit, Ness doesn't try to disguise the fact that he and his cohorts are rock musicians first and country fans second. He displays the utmost reverence for the material, thankfully steering clear of ironic postmodern gestures (like his country heroes, he can only ever play it straight), but this is clearly a rock band playing country. Thus, the songs have some extra electrified zip and propulsive rhythms. Still, Ness's outlaw-with-a-heart-of-gold stance, his combination of bad-boy bravado and church-bound repentance (qualities he arrived at independent of his country forefathers) are perfectly in line with the aesthetic propounded by Marty Robbins ("Big Iron"), Hank Williams ("House of Gold"), and Marvin Rainwater ("Gamblin' Man").
