If you fell in love with Love on the Inside, Sugarland's 2008 release, and are hoping for more of the same country sounds you will be disappointed by The Incredible Machine. This can hardly be described as a country album. It strikes me more as a musical exploration by two gifted musicians. Jennifer Nettles' vocals are as powerful as ever and even somewhat haunting at times...

This album can be best compared to a glass of complex red wine. It's flavours will delight you on many levels if you are open to exploring a new taste, but the complexity is such that you probably won't want more than a glass or two at a time. I do like this album but will be enjoying it in small doses. This may not be an album that I will overplay yet I am delighted to have it on hand.

I find it hard to believe that a platinum selling album only rates 2 stars.
Yes, if you are a traditional country fan you probably won't like this cd.
If you call yourself a Sugarland fan, you should be used to them going in their own direction.
They certainly made it plain before release what kind of music they were aiming for, and they succeeded well beyond my expectations.
If you approach this album without preconceived ideas of what YOU think it should be, and just go with Sugarland's always great lyrics and beautifully crafted musical arrangements,(never forgetting the astonishing voice of Jennifer Nettles), then Incredible Machine is an incredibly good cd, and many fans obviously agree.
I've seldom gone a day without playing it since release.
I say "where next"and impatiently anticipate the next album. With Sugarland you sit back and "Enjoy the Ride".

This album comes on 120g black vinyl. It was slightly warped on arrival as many lower weight vinyls are these days. The jacket is just a sleeve and no fold out portion. The sleeve is a cheap glued type and almost ripped getting the disc out. The pressing quality itself is average and there doesn't seem to be any dynamic range compression.

I was counting the days down until this album was released.... and I am a very dissapointed woman today! As a huge Sugarland fan, especially of the "Love on the Inside" album (one of the few CDs in my collection that I can listen to from beginning to end and LOVE every song), this album left me feeling like the band has taken a turn in their musical style that just doesn't jive. The CD barely sounds country, and some parts remind me of songs from the Lion King! Do yourself a favor and stick to the old stuff, as this CD will leave you unsatisfied... :(

The same incredible pipes, but a completely new attitude Oct. 19 2010
By Thomas E. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Country music fans have been waiting two years for Sugarland's newest, and they will not be disappointed - unless, that is, they expect more of the same. This CD is nothing like the three albums they released in 2004, 2006, and 2008. It's far less twangy and far more rocking, as much Melissa Etheridge as Dixie Chicks.

This may be good or bad news, depending on how you feel about the change. Incredible Machine has the biggest sound the band has ever produced: sweeping, stadium-filling anthems that show off Jennifer Nettles' commanding voice, especially the first two tracks, "All We Are" and the title song. The third track is the already-released single, "Stuck Like Glue," a radio-friendly hit that epitomizes country-pop, with a brief, strange detour into reggae-rap.

The fourth track, "Tonight," is a heartfelt ballad that bears an uncanny resemblance to the aforementioned Etheridge. The fifth, on the other hand, contains the harmonies and themes we've come to expect from Sugarland. Called "Stand Up," it gives Kristian Bush his first solo vocal part on this CD and has the potential to be a huge hit on country radio.

The album's second half kicks off with the very peppy "Every Girl Like Me," followed by another Nettles showcase, a fine country ballad called "Little Miss." The next track is unfortunately the least successful song on the CD, "Find the Beat Again," in which Nettles sounds for all the world like Deborah Harry of Blondie fame. Whatever this song is, it ain't country! The album concludes with a straight-ahead rocker produced for the Winter Olympics, "Wide Open," and a gospel ballad accompanied by solo piano called "Shine the Light." Both are powerful, but the former is irresistibly catchy while the latter is positively conventional.

What to make of this outing? I enjoy rock and power ballads, and since we've heard plenty of traditional country songs from Nettles and Bush, I'm inclined to give them the freedom to experiment. But the CD is definitely a crossover, so country purists will call it a mixed bag at best and an utter betrayal at worst. If that happens, it will be a shame, a negation of the many enjoyable musical moments on the album. And who cares what they think? I liked it.

Modern country duo bids for crossover audience Nov. 19 2010
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On their third album, modern country duo Sugarland (Jennifer Nettles-vocals, Kristian Bush-guitar/vocals) makes a bold bid for cross-over success. How well their effort succeeds depends on where you sit as a listener in the country-pop spectrum. Fans of modern country music may feel this forsakes the few threads of country roots that remain in Nashville's productions. Ironically though, fans of earlier, twangier country music may be willing to take Sugarland's arena-ready rock productions as just that - something fully divorced from Nashville's faint echoes of roots music. Taken on this latter axis, Bryan Gallimore's outsized productions - enormous drum sounds, slashing electric guitars, heavy echoes and the ubiquitous "programming" - make a good impression.

The duo's original songs are catchy and Jennifer Nettles' voice cuts through the rock backings like a fog cutter in a thick bank. When the productions occasionally lighten, as on the lead single "Stuck Like Glue," the music turns into modern day bubblegum, with riffy lyrics, cute singing and a toasting bridge that suggests Gwen Stefani in Music City. One might argue about whether Sugarland's previous albums had already moved far away from traditional country sounds, but The Incredible Machine puts the conversation to bed as the duo openly bids for modern rock success with power-ballads like "Tonight" and a heavy dose of studio effects. The closest the album comes to even modern Nashville's notion of country is "Little Miss," but even here the song grows from acoustic guitars into a heavily wrought production.

The reggae beat and rapping passage of "Every Girl Like Me" are sure to alienate some of the group's long time fans, though more on principle than musical value. Ditto for the punchy pop-rock "Find the Beat Again," which sounds as if it could be a hit for one of Disney's teen stars. None of this is really news, as the group hinted in these directions all along, and modern country production has become a virtual second home for modern rock sounds. If you held on to your U2 tickets through Bono's back problems, you'll find the sound of Sugarland's latest to your liking. You won't find Bono's philosophical world outlook in the lyrics, but you can shuffle this into a mid-80s mix of Simple Minds and Big Country without any tears or fears. [©2010 hyperbolium dot com]

AMAZING!! Nov. 15 2010
By eme620 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sugarland has done an amazing job evolving with each album. You never get the same thing, which I think, is a really good thing. If you're expecting a true country album, this may not be for you. BUT this album is so inspiring and so much fun! I pre-ordered it and it hasn't come out of my CD player or off my iPod since October 19th. I highly recommend it!

Incredible Incredible Machine Oct. 20 2010
By H. Kloran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Why does everyone seem to be getting hung up on genre ?

This album is nothing less than spectacular. I liked back in the day when artists like Queen, Prince & David Bowie [to name but a few] would have a a diferent sound on each album, yet still sound like themeselves. Sugarland has done this w/ The Incredible Machine. I would rather an artist give the fans something new and intersting, thus helping them grow, rather than xeroxing what previously worked [i.e. taylor swift .. all of her tunes sound almost exactly the same].
Sure The Incredible Machine isn't a country album by any means but it is great. The title track is very atmospheric and moody and for being 5 min goes by way too quickly. Little Miss will work well on country radio. Shine The Light is this album's Stay, moving and heartfelt.
To those that expect a certain sound from an artist I say: OPEN YOUR MINDS and do not pidgeon hole YOUR music tastes.
My only complaint is that the cover art is kinda bland. Sugarland spent a lot of time and effort creating a fantastic set and costumes using the steam-punk style for the concert tour, but it didn't transfer on to the CD cover.

Surprise of the year... Nov. 19 2010
By D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Some things are just meant to be. I'm a lifelong hater of most mainstream music, and almost all country music, so there's no reason on earth why I should have ever even heard of Sugarland. If I hadn't seen Jennifer Nettles's interview on Chelsea Lately, then I wouldn't have stopped to listen when I came across their CMA performance while channel surfing. And if I hadn't seen that irresistibly charming performance, I wouldn't have ever taken a chance on buying this album. Am I ever glad I did...this is some of the best music I've heard this year. Granted, there's nothing country about it...it's so diverse, from the glam-rock first song to the gorgeous Elton-esque closing track, and all the power ballads and rock anthems in between, these songs are all superbly crafted and performed. And I couldn't be more impressed by Jennifer's amazing voice, it's so powerful and so distinctive. Country music fans seem to be turning on the band for making this adventurous album, and it's a shame. I feel sorry for the people giving this album one star, because some of them must have a very narrow view of what music should sound like. I buy pop or country music very rarely, because even when I hear the rare song on the radio that I like, the rest of the band's music usually disappoints. So I didn't expect the rest of this album to be nearly as good as "Stuck Like Glue", but I was rewarded for taking the chance, because I honestly love every song on Incredible Machine. If other "country" musicians took this kind of risk, there might be some hope for the genre!
