Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Carrie Underwood's favorite group -- country-pop trio Rascal Flatts -- look to top their quadruple-platinum Me and My Gang. Still Feels Good features "Take Me There," the single cowritten by Kenny Chesney.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Proving that nice guys do indeed finish first, Rascal Flatts fought off all challengers with their fourth record, Me and My Gang, turning it into the biggest-selling album of 2006 that wasn't High School Musical. Me and My Gang wasn't a smash hit because it was risky; it was a smash hit because it was friendly, appealing to as broad an audience as possible, the very qualities that Rascal Flatts has ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Proving that nice guys do indeed finish first, Rascal Flatts fought off all challengers with their fourth record, Me and My Gang, turning it into the biggest-selling album of 2006 that wasn't High School Musical. Me and My Gang wasn't a smash hit because it was risky; it was a smash hit because it was friendly, appealing to as broad an audience as possible, the very qualities that Rascal Flatts has turned into a badge of honor during the course of their immensely successful but low-key career. Few bands have had such success without quite being noticed: the trio is so cheerfully average, they never seem like stars, nor do they seem recognizable even after regular CMT rotation and stacks of rewards. Such near-anonymity works for the band and helps give their music a universal appeal, and if that approach has been resoundingly popular, well, why mess with success? Rascal Flatts nearly acknowledges as much with the title to their 2007 follow-up to Me and My Gang, Still Feels Good. After all, if the formula ain't broken, why bother messing with it? And the band doesn't mess with it at all, unless the very vague rap of "Bob That Head" -- more Toby Keith's "Let's Talk About Us" than Cowboy Troy -- could be counted, for even the Jamie Foxx cameo on "She Goes All the Way" slides by relatively unnoticed. Foxx's inexplicable presence is the most overt signal that Still Feels Good is more pop than country, a criticism leveled against Rascal Flatts for some time now, and one they keep shrugging off because they do adult pop quite well. They continue to do this easy, smooth sound well, but increasingly they're doing it without distinction. Everything on Still Feels Good sounds fine -- the uptempo tunes are bouncy without being sprightly, the ballads are sweet without being too sappy -- but few songs jump out and grab attention. The first single, "Take Me There," is a gently pulsating pop tune, "Here" has a surging chorus ideal for both arenas and offices, "No Reins" vaguely sounds like Pat Benatar's "Shadows of the Night," "Bob That Head" rocks the party mildly, "Help Me Remember" is a textbook power ballad, while "It's Not Supposed to Go Like That" reveals a semblance of a social conscious. All of these ever so slightly stand out from the rest, but they also all settle into a soft mosaic of smooth pop that is as soothing as a warm bath. It's something that may be cozy, but it's not quite memorable, but based on the album's relentlessly relaxing vibe, Rascal Flatts isn't all that concerned about being anything more than easygoing guys next door. In other words, they're once again the most normal stars in either country or pop, but Still Feels Good suggests that there's not only a fine line between ordinary and dull, but that the group is on the verge of crossing it.
New York Times - Kelefa Sanneh
The new Rascal Flatts album, Still Feels Good, confirms what fans already know: These guys sound great when they raise their eyebrows and wail.

    Musical integrity, be damned!

    Oh, how they have fooled ALL of you! These three "artists", who have readily and willingly admitted that they choose songs, and write songs not based on what the song means to them, or that it may convey a message to anyone.....they choose them on WHAT WILL SELL!!! There is nothing even marginally talented about this group, and in so much as they wish they were really rock stars, but didnt have the talent to do it, they are throwing a towel over everyone's eyes by playing and recording insipid, boring, throw away music. Jamie Foxx? Was that an attempt to further the whole idiotic "Me and My Gang" theme? As much as I feel Big and Rich is a slap in the face to country music, at least they have the integrity and the "marbles" to pay tribute to the true elements of country....not trying to fool us into thinking they give two shakes about the public. They are an embarrassment, plain and simple. Where is Restless Heart when you need them?

    I love this CD soooo much! I can't go a day without listening to at least one song on it. It's incredible. Rascal Flatts really outdid themselves on this one! My favorite is "She Goes All The Way".
