We gave it a B+

The Hailey brothers often sound like they’re wailing somewhere near the amen corner, wrapping their hearts around every lyric in the testifyin’ tradition. Like their multiplatinum debut, It’s Real shines, mostly because of the duo’s emotive ballads, which achieve a kind of prom-song-like sanctity without a trace of pappy sap. And with dependable lyrics like ”I’ll fly away” and ”Somebody done done me wrong,” you almost hear the murmur of angels. B+
