Third Rock from the Sun

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Owens
Third Rock from the Sun represents a bit of a musical departure for Joe Diffie. Though he keeps his basic honky tonk roots, he experiments more, adding more rock flourishes to his sound. Not all of his attempts are successful, but his ballads are frequently compelling. Nevertheless, it's a little distressing that he has only written one song on the album -- there's no reason for his well to dry up by only his fourth record.

    Pick up man

    I liked the pickup man because it reminded me of my stepdad. The first time i heard it i was sitting in a restaurant and i played it on a juke box. Then i found the tape in a store and gave i to my stepdad for his birthday.
