Anyone who’s heard their previous hits (or modern country radio in general) won’t be surprised at the subject matter on this Canadian sextet’s third album: love conquers all, women are wonderful, small towns are great, regrets are a pain and the homeless are people, too. The songs carrying those tried-and-true messages here are OK but unexceptional, carried along by lead singer Brad Mate’s likeable voice and his bandmates’ infectious energy and considerable skill—especially in the rare moments, like the kickin’ “Countrified Soul,” when they get to show off their chops a little.
