It always seemed to me that Joe Diffie was an unfairly unsung part of the country music resurgence of the mid 1990s. Thinking back to that time, I cannot recall another country artist that had as many hits while maintaining such consistently clever lyrics and remarkable musicianship. And yet he has gone relatively uncelebrated. This, in my opinion, is his finest recording, and I hope that he gains in death the acclaim he should have had in life.
