If the title of BR5-49's latest album makes it seem like the Nashville roots country holdouts are starting over from scratch, that's not too far off the mark. They've at least put aside the tiresome Hee-Haw hayseed hokum that made them a musical comedy act, and now attempt to be witty instead of playing for yuks. The album winds up sounding like it could have been cut by Nick Lowe during one of his boots 'n' fringe periods, and that's a good thing. They've got some smart songs that reveal unexpected sensitivity, but there are still more than a few grins along the way with show-stoppers like Too Lazy To Work, Too Nervous To Steal. That's more like it.
