I'm new to the Dixie Chicks but I must say that I dig this latest album they've put together.
I especially like the song "I'm Not Ready To Make Nice". Not only are the lyrics killer but the tune is stirring.
Other songs on the album are very musically strong as well. I was expecting more sort of rollicking country tracks, and there are a few of those, but the whole shebang is a mix between soft rock, folk and r 'n' b.

you should watch 'shut up and sing'
it give insight into the making of the cd and why the music is less "country"

Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing that.
They had some parts of it on the DVD that came with the CD.
I'll try to track it down.

Was definitely one of the best CDs of 2006. One of the best groups in country music history.

true true---even if country music won't admit it...

Didn't this album get banned on a lotta country radio stations? i liked it, even though it was a bit polished for my taste. i'd like to hear them release a Son Volt-like alt-country album. More rootsy and up the political ante.

I loved how they raked in the Grammys this year and THE Grammy.
