We gave it a B+

John Anderson’s duetted on seemingly every other country CD this past year, leading kids to ask: Who’s that cool guy with the frog in his throat? An overlooked legend who can lay claim to one of the all-time jukebox perennials (1983’s ”Swingin”’), back with 11 tracks equally deserving of an empty change purse. Producer/acolyte John Rich lets loose the Big & Rich rock-band-with-sawing-fiddle approach on a few Easy Money tunes, while the tear-in-your-beer ballads stay rooted in a time before Bud Light. Career reclamations don’t come much worthier.
