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".
