Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
It doesn't take long to figure out that sweet-singing siblings Heather and Jennifer Kinley are delivering a tougher, more mature attitude on their much-anticipated sophomore release. Indeed, the sassy edge of the opening cut "She Ain't the Girl for You" sets the tone for the entire album. Some of the credit must go to coproducer Radney Foster, who oversaw eight of the album's 13 cuts. All of the album's Foster-produced tracks are taut and driving, rooted in both traditional rock 'n' roll and contemporary country. An apparent Shania/Dixie Chicks influence crops up here and there, but for the most part the Kinleys have made a potent, singular statement of their own. ...

It doesn't take long to figure out that sweet-singing siblings Heather and Jennifer Kinley are delivering a tougher, more mature attitude on their much-anticipated sophomore release. Indeed, the sassy edge of the opening cut "She Ain't the Girl for You" sets the tone for the entire album. Some of the credit must go to coproducer Radney Foster, who oversaw eight of the album's 13 cuts. All of the album's Foster-produced tracks are taut and driving, rooted in both traditional rock 'n' roll and contemporary country. An apparent Shania/Dixie Chicks influence crops up here and there, but for the most part the Kinleys have made a potent, singular statement of their own. Whether projecting pugnacious self-assurance on the rocking, Foster-penned "I'm In," cocky assertiveness on the Wynonna-style blues groove "Me Too," or open-hearted vulnerability on the soaring love ballad "If Ever I Needed You" which they cowrote with Foster, the Kinleys consistently carve out their own dynamic sound. Good songs, terrific voices and inspired performances add up to a big winner. No sophomore slump here.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
In 1998, the Kinleys were back in the country Top 20 with "Somebody's Out There Watching," from the Touched By an Angel television soundtrack. In the summer of 1999, they put out the single "My Heart Is Still Beating," which was intended to be the curtain raiser on their second album. But it fizzled, dropping off the charts after two weeks. Epic decided to go back to the drawing board, bringing in new producer Radney Foster to replace Tony Haselden and Russ Zavitson, who had shepherded the Kinleys for their entire career. The result, a full year later, is The Kinleys II, which is really two half-albums, its first six songs handled by Foster and the next six by Haselden and Zavitson, with "Somebody's Out There Watching" following as the conclusion. Like his own modestly successful solo albums, Foster's half consists of craftsmanlike country-pop with blues tendencies. The tempos are restrained, the material well put together but dull, and the sisters are given a lot of solo singing. Foster seems to conceive of the Kinleys as potential successors to the Judds, but with both singers playing the earthy Wynonna role. Yet anyone who leaves the album playing until the seventh track the first Haselden/Zavitson track is in for a surprise -- suddenly, the record comes into focus as a lively, driving country disc. Maybe it's just that Epic cherry-picked from a scrapped earlier version of this album, but its second half is a vast improvement over its first. The Haselden/Zavitson numbers are honky tonk harmony performances in which the Kinleys sound much more involved than they do with Foster; it's clear that the Kinleys' first producers have a much better sense of their real strengths than the hired gun brought in to save the release. You can't help wondering what would have happened if the whole album were as good as the second half -- since a successful country album now has the same sales potential as a pop release, the second effort for an act that had good but not great sales the first time around is crucial to its success.
