' Everyone knows of the controversy with the group, so we will not belabor it here except to say that it helped to generate their best LP to date. Natalie Maines says "It was awesome ... to be angry, to be sure that you're right and that the things you do matter. You don't realize that you're not feeling those feelings until you do. And then you realize how much more interesting life is." Its opening salvo: "Forgive/Sounds good/Forget/I is not sure I could." Its fierce chorus: "It's too late to make it right/I probably wouldn't if I could/'Cause I'm mad as hell/Can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should." Or the bridge: "How in the world can the words that I said/Send somebody so over the edge/That they'd write me a letter/Sayin' that I better shut up and sing/Or my life will be over."
The LP was written with first rate singers and writers, partners ,Semisonic's Dan Wilson but also including the Jayhawks' Gary Louris, Sheryl Crow, Neil Finn, Keb' Mo', Pete Yorn and Linda Perry. It has been written that this LP is an extension of SoCal rock tradition like Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstandt. The backing group consists of a few Heartbreakers, as in Tom Petty; Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the best producer in the business, Rick Rubin.
''Lubbock or Leave It'' talks about the small town hypocrisy facing Natalie Maines
''Everybody Knows'' discusses the look at the cult of celebrity.
''Silent House,'' is a heartbreaker about Natalie Maines's grandmother, who has Alzheimer's disease.
"It's So Hard When It Doesn't Come Easy" addresses infertility. ("I think we feel a responsibility to break down some barriers," says Maguire. "It's much more of a common problem than people realize.")
"I Hope," co-written with Keb' Mo', during last year's telethon benefiting the victims of Hurricane Katrina; is the winner here. A wonderful hymn with the resounding refrain "I Hope".
"Baby Hold On" is a image of domestic life.
"Lullaby," which they call "a gift to our kids."
"Not Ready To Make Nice" has been written about ad nauseaum but is powerful.
"Favorite Year" co-written with Sheryl Crow, talks about how they started and what year was the best.
This LP is a tribute to these Superstars, renegades, innovators, heroes, villains, and moms, The Dixie Chicks. The lyrics from "Favorite Year" say it all:" ( Amazon customer)
