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.

Changing the game

Eric Church keeps pushing country music outside of the hip hop and pop genres that radio keeps taking it. This is his least commercial, but most artistic project yet. Speaks volumes about his ability to capture an audience but still stay true to himself.
I'd compare it to Bruce Springsteen's 'Nebraska' album. Right at the peak of his career he goes all artistic and knocks it out of the park. Unbelievable purchase.

Best Album Since “Chief"

I wasn’t a big fan of The Outsiders. It was too generic, and standard country. This is the Eric Church I listened to when I was back in High School. Great Record, Welcome back Eric.

One word...original

Eric Church continues to break ground on bringing country music back to its roots. Just an original singer/songwriter doing things his own way, which in my opinion is the better way. No funky rap back beat with the same ol regurgitated lyrics about pickup trucks and dirt roads, which isn't a bad thing, just played out. Country radio should pay a little more attention to genuine country artists such as Eric Church and leave the pop/hip hop fused garbage for another station such as, I don't know, pop or hip hop. Ps atta boy Chris Stapleton.
