Honestly, I’m kind of afraid to revisit it. Will I react to my 2008 musical self the way I cringe when I see old photographs? Why on earth did I wear my hair so long? Why on earth did I listen to this?
Or maybe I’d still dig it.
I do know that I own one other Sugarland album, The Incredible Machine, and I didn’t like that one right from the start.
Here’s the title track, which features lead singer Jennifer Nettles at her most grating.
Feels like I’m flying
Wings made of light
Brand new and shining
Like a shot rung out through the night
A heart that beats an incredible machine
Made of blood, and love, and hope, and lust, and steam
Feels like I’m floating
Weightless in flight
Light that’s exploding
As a soul and gravity fight
Lifted higher mercury skies above
Water, fire burning a sight of love
