I gave this album 4 stars only because I would reserve 5 stars for such classics as "Blonde on Blonde" or other similarly situated albums. This album isn't "Blonde on Blonde" but it is certainly good. In their past albums Cracker alluded to the secret country band that resided within, but never really explored those tendencies (except for a few songs, usually penned by guitarist Johnny Hickman). This album is the realization of those tendencies in concentrated form. You can tell that Cracker intended this album as a protest album of sorts. As usual David Lowery is pissed; but this time you know who it is he's pissed at: The government ("Duty Free"), pretentious Americanism ("Truckload of Art"), ignorance of the blue collar ("Sinaloa Cowboys"), and most humorously, his record label ("Ain't Gonna Suck Itself"). In fact, the final song itself is worth the price of admission. As opposed to other reviewers, I think Hank Williams (I, II, or III), or Merle Haggard, would be proud of this album.

If you're a Cracker fan buy this record. It's got lots of tongue in cheek lyrics, up-tempo catchy tunes and classic Cracker wit. Perhaps the only negative is the length. Nine tracks is short even by old-school standards (I haven't yet watched the Ironic Mullets Quicktime - maybe this makes up for it).
I'm a little confused because aside from the title, this album is no more "country" than anything else Cracker has produced. True, they cover and twist the lyrics around on a couple of country classics like "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers" and "Family Tradition," but the Countrysides renditions don't sound anymore country than say "Sweet Thistle Pie" or "Dixie Babylon" off the Golden Age album.
Buy this album because Cracker is a fantastic, underrated band that more people should enjoy. Just don't expect Hank Williams Jr. to look down with approval when you hit play.

Folks, I love Cracker. And I love alt-country music, like the recently disappeared Americana channel on DirecTV. Damn them! Why does all the good stuff disappear, while Rap and Easy Listening lives on forever? I dunno.
Nevertheless, while Cracker is being seriously ironic, the music still kicks ass. Especially after four or five drinks. The only reason they don't get five stars for this disk is that they don't have "Okie From Muskogee" on the CD itself, only on the video, and then only part of it. Sorry, guys. It takes "Okie From Muskogee" to get five stars. "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down" and "Up Against The Wall Redneck Mothers" is only worth four stars.
But I loved "It Ain't Gonna Suck Itself" which is probably worth an extra 1/2 star, so we'll give you 4-1/2.

As alt country goes, this is near the top. A forgotten band (by radio and sales standards) doing what they want without a label putting their hands in the pot. In conjunction with "O Cracker Where Art Thou" Cracker has reinvented themselves, with more emphasis on the country/bluegrass side of rock and roll. If David Lowery injected a little more Camper Van experimentation into his songs they could (and well may) find a much larger audience, and become revered for their innovations and longevity.

This album is something a little different for alternative rockers David Lowery and Cracker, a tribute to country music. I bought it for the cover of Ray Wylie Hubbard's Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers. Ironically, it's one of the weakest tracks on the album. There are some real gems here, though, especially the version of Hank Williams Jr's Family Tradition, Haggard's Reasons to Quit, and Lowery's own suggestive ballard Ain't Gonna Suck Itself.

A really fun collection of "country" tunes that have been Cracker-ized. Frankly, I enjoyed this album as much or more than their "regular" albums. I especially like the covers of "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers", "The Bottle Let Me Down" and "Reasons to Quit." They also do songs by Hank Williams Jr. and Dwight Yoakam, but there are no songwriting credits listed, so I have to wonder if the rest of the songs on the album are also covers? I love the tune "Duty Free", for example, but have no idea if it's a tune by David Lowery or another cover. I have the Cooking Vinyl CD release and there is a little booklet included that has a short essay, but no songwriting credits. Weird. In any case, this is fun music played with spirit and passion. The band sounds like they had a blast making this one.
