iTunes Review

First offered to fans as a surprise release through the mail, Church’s fifth album is an about-face from the bombastic explorations of 2014’s The Outsiders toward the kind of big, bittersweet country-rock that made ballads like “Springsteen” instant classics. Produced by longtime collaborator Jay Joyce (whose credits include Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood), Mr. Misunderstood is a hearty—and heartfelt—album, opening with a portrait of a good-natured outlaw who defies convention just by being himself (“Mr. Misunderstood”) and ending with a litany of lessons from a three-year-old boy, chief among them the importance of admitting when you’re wrong.

This album is nothing short of a masterpiece. It sounds like The Grateful Dead, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bruce Springsteen came together and had a child born into the cleansing waters of classic rock and roll.

Holding His Own

Each time Eric puts out a new album, I feel more connected to his music - even when I think to myself, "There's no way this album can be better than the last." Hearing the originality and pure sincerity on these tracks moves me to tears. Sure, it's cheesy, but his music is 100% him as an artist and it's been incredible to hear him make that transformation. This album solidifies the respect - love it.
