Okay, not great.

When I first heard Need You Now, I was impressed enough to buy the rest of the album, thinking that many or all of the songs would be of the same caliber. I was sadly mistaken.
While there are some good stand out tracks like Hello World, Need You Now, American Honey and Our Kind of Love, I find I just keep listening to those first four tracks and nothing else. The rest is just nice, soothing, etc. but nothing outstanding or to write home about or worth putting on repeat. However, I am satisfied overall with the purchase because Need You Now and some of the others make up for the dreary ones on the album. I won't immediately buy their next album next time because I hope they show some growth and start making every track a killer, not filler.
