Editorial Reviews

Produced by multiple Grammy-Award winner Rob Cavallo, Happy Hour is a breezy blend of country-flavored pop and rock and roll that showcases not only the Detroit native's natural appeal as a likeable Everyman, but also his considerable gifts as a songwriter. Though many know him from his early years as the DJ in Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has had impressive success as a songwriter, racking up co-writing credits on Kid Rock's blockbuster hits 'Bawitdaba,' 'Cowboy,' 'Forever,' 'Only God Knows Why,' and 2008's No. 1 'All Summer Long,' as well as his own Adult Top 40 No. 1 'Follow Me' (from his 2000 double-platinum debut Double Wide). On 'Smile,' the buoyant first single, Uncle Kracker's soulful drawl unspools over massively hooky choruses.

One of the coolest and catchiest albums I've heard in awhile. Loaded with great hooks, you'll start humming and singing along after only a few spins. Overall, most of the songs are very laid back (definitely U.K.'s style), but you can tell they've been jazzed up to be radio hits. My only gripe is on "Livin' the Dream"... a great song overall, but definitely wrecked by having Kracker's vocals overly processed for the first half of the song.

Definite highlights are: "Smile", "Another Love Song", "Me Again" (a great duet), "My Girlfriend", and "Livin' the Dream".

Definitely the best album Uncle Kracker has released to date.

I buy a lot of music, but this is my favorite of the year! It is refreshing, upbeat, and very "contagious". I cannot stop playing it. Also, you do not have to worry about turning down the volume if the kids come into the room like you did with some of Uncle Kracker's previous work.

When I started hearing "Smile" on the radio, I had to come to Amazon to check out the artist performing the song. I bought the cd on download and I can't tell you how much play this one cd has gotten. It goes with me in the car as I find it to have great feel-good driving music. I play it when I want to have music on around the house...I even have been known to clean around the house to the music. It's even great to dance the vacuum cleaner around during the songs. The songs are well written in the story they tell. The lyrics are well put to the sounds of the music. I've definitely turned into an Uncle Kracker fan, so much so that I've worked backwards to his previous music and downloaded those, too. I'm not big on rap music on a couple of tracks on the various cds releases but there is enough music to enjoy a variety of Uncle Kracker songs.

If you are browsing this cd after hearing "Smile" on the radio, let me encourage you to buy this cd release and get to know Uncle Kracker and his music!

I'm a huge Bob Seeger fan. I have to say at first listen (and subsequent plays) that I found the cover of "Mainstreet" to be very well done. There is a tone about Uncle Kracker in "Mainstreet" that runs close to Seeger and his own performance throughout the years of "Mainstreet". I wouldn't mind hearing Uncle Kracker cover more Seeger tunes on his cds to come.

Between the rock, Motown sound, the country and the rap that Uncle Kracker offers, he is an artist that can provide music entertainment for whatever genre one might be interested in. The only regret I have is opting for this cd over the Deluxe version. I can go back and purchase "Celebrate" and "Josephine"...

I enjoy many different types of music.I heard this performer on the radio and decided to check out some of his music. I have decided that I like his style. I have purchased several of his albums and enjoy every one of them. Give Uncle Kracker a try and decide for yourself. I wasn't dissappointed.

The music generally has a good groove, and is catchy pop-type listening. I do have to skip over the song My Girlfriend (has a girlfriend now) when listening with the kids in the car as its not appropriate subject matter for them. Also Livin' The Dream is too heavily sampled / synthesized for my preference. Other than that I have to say Corner Bar is my favorite tune and Hot Mess is a fun tune as well.

Can't give it a 4.5 so rounding it up to a 5 star rating. Hope this helps someone!

I mainly bought this album for the song Smile. However since listening to the album. I have fallen in love with many more songs on this album. Uncle Kracker knows how to sing a song and make you feel it deep down in your soul.

This CD spans the generations in our family. "Smile" is one of my favorite songs and the grandkids love this title hit. This is my youngest granddaughter's all-time-favorite song. With Uncle K's distinctively beautiful voice this is a genuine pleasure in sound. Highly recommended!

A great album by an underrated artist. Uncle Kracker writes catchy songs with funny lyrics, as well as putting his own unique spin on other artist's songs such as the Bob Seger classic, "Main Street", which he covers to haunting effect on this album. A fantastic album!
