All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The bigfoot stomp of the JaneDear girls' debut album isn't entirely unfamiliar ground for producer John Rich, but he's not exactly forcing his Big & Rich gonzo blueprint upon Susie Brown and Danelle Leverett either. Brown and Leverett are commercially savvy enough to know what sells, whether it's the va-va-voom glamour of their album cover or the Auto-Tuned vocals on the Miranda Lambert-meets-Carrie Underwood thump of "Merry Go Round," and they have a hand in the writing of every song here.

    Absolutely great!

    This is a really fun CD. The JaneDear Girls' sound harkens back to the great girl bands of the 1980s, like the Bangles and the Go-Gos. Sure, the music employs fiddles, banjos, and mandolins, and a few of the songs mention trucks and cowboys, but those are the only things that earn the girls a label as a country music band. Their music is pure pop, and great pop at that. There are a couple of songs that sound a bit like other artists. "Sing Along" begins with a kind of Taylor Swift-like vibe, and "Everyday's a Holiday" starts off sounding like something the Bangles would have done. But no matter how the openings sound, the songs are unmistakably the songs of the JaneDear Girls. The Girls harmonize beautifully, and the music is lively, feel-good music. The CD kicks off with the rocking "Wildflower" and "Shotgun Girl," which really set the tone for the whole disc. "Merry Go Round" is a great dance number; in fact, the whole disc is very danceable. The tempo slows down a bit for "Saturdays in September" and "Never Gonna Let You Go," but they're still very upbeat. "Sing Along" is a delightful kiss-off, reminiscent only in subject matter to Toby Keith's "How Do You Like Me Now." I can't pick a favorite tune; I love them all.
