I wish the Pistol Annies would come back. Two albums just isn’t enough.

I feel like you put almost too much emphasis on the fact that this album could never play to the radio. Like, Ron Gallo is an artist who also could not play to the radio, but there was not word of it in the review of him. And I’d argue that this album is a shade better than Gallo, composition wise.
Now, I understand with some of the themes that yes, it is more relevent in this particular album that the radio needs to be factored in, and perhaps there could have been a bit more self awareness but, if these songs were more radio friendly, they would lose their edge. The snarl of this album, to me that is a lot of the appeal, and it sounds great. I just feel like a thematic nitpick shouldn’t bring it down to an 8. I don’t think it’s a 10, but the songs just uniformly sound so great, that I can’t see why it would get below a 9.
