Consumer Guide Reviews:

It's Later Than You Think [, 2008]
Natural-born naysayer returns to north Florida, combats depression by describing what he sees ("Sunshine State," "OD Holton, 1979"). **

Pawnshop [Gatorbone, 2009]
"Garbage burning in the yard, a rebel flag waves/Car on blocks, a pit bull chained/All the sheriff's deputies know his name" ("Real Country," "Jesus Was a Revolutionary"). **

Bad Wife [Rootball, 2020]
With nary a pronoun switch, male artist sings 11 first-person songs by women of small renown, the first half dozen a steely bunch who've obviously known too many men for too damn long ("Unsustainable," "Bad Wife," "3:52 a.m.") ***
