I am a long- time Old 97s fan and have followed them for years on the road. Frankly every album since "Too Far to Care" has suffered initially in my mind by comparison. It usually takes weeks or months or years for me to discover the genius in each new album. This album is the exception. It hit me on first listening as the tightest, most representative album of the band. An instant collection of all-time greats.

Rhett and the boys have done it again, giving us a great party album that won't be leaving my playlist anytime soon. The opening track showcases a retrospective Mr. Miller, looking back on all the fun (among other things) that he's had over the course of his career (thus far!). He continues to regale us with stories of the rock n' roll lifestyle, but always incorporating at least an ounce of maturity (if you listen closely), just proving that he is old enough to know better, but still too young to care. Tommy Stinson adds some chops to several cuts lending some sassy Replacements' sneer to an already sassy album. If you are a fan of the Old 97s, or if you just want to give 'em a listen, I highly recommend this album. But don't stop there...get 'em all!

I'm a huge fan of this band. I have every one of their albums, have seen them live half a dozen times and have tickets to see them in May. I've tried but cannot connect with this album like I have their others. Most of the songs sound similar. There are few memorable melodies as we usually find on an Old 97's album. There are few clever turns of phrase that we're used to getting from Rhett. There are too many gratuitous f-bombs. Even the usually reliable Murray wasn't able to offer a particularly interesting song. I'm surprised by all the 5-star reviews and, especially, the comparisons to Too Far to Care. Too Far to Care is a top-ten desert island album for me; this one wouldn't be in my top 500. It gives me no joy to write a less than stellar review for an Old 97's album, but this one just doesn't do it for me despite repeated listens.

OK, first off this is not the album where the Old 97's got their mojo back. That happened with the woefully under-appreciated Grand Theatre albums. That was their true return to their alt-country roots and the real end of their foray into pop music. Go check them out. That being said, Most Messed Up kicks things up a notch and it definitely their best effort since Too Far To Care.

Kicking off reflecting on 20 plus years of life on the road, Longer Than You've Been Alive jumps out makes a statement that the band is going to have some fun with this one. Rock and roll has indeed been very very good to Rhett and the boys. After the 6-minute or so opener, the band smokes through the rest of the tracks. Let's Get Drunk and Get It On is catchy and the chorus is an instant live sing-a-long. Their punk tendencies shine on Give it Time and Intervention. Nashville is vulgar and hilarious. Wasted recalls some of their better mid-tempo county tunes.

If the entire album had a theme it would be that these 40-something rockers are comfortable with their place in the world. Oh, and alcohol. And lots of it. The songs are all about getting drunk, getting drunk and having sex, getting drunk and dating, being the best drunk in Dallas, and doing all that for 20 years.

Yes, there are f-bombs. Who cares? This is the most messed up, but most fun album I've heard in a long while. I hope this band is just getting its second wind.

This sounds like music from a hungry young bands first recording with lyrics only too much time on the road can inspire. Clearly the BEST new disc I've heard in years.

I have some of their older stuff and always liked them but didn't realize they were still around. With the state of music these days it is hard to find good stuff.This is pretty damn good! Driving guitars and witty lyrics make for a great listen.Highly recommended.

I was turned onto the Old 97's by a friend of mine and after listening to a few of their albums on Prime Music decided to purchase Most Messed Up. I'm a huge fan now! Their mix of country and rock is a welcome divergence from modern country music and Most Messed Up is one of the most complete albums I've heard in awhile from any genre. After listening through several times I found that there's not really a bad song in the bunch.

One word of warning....don't listen to this album around the kids! I know, it explicitly states that the lyrics might be explicit, but I didn't really know what to expect. The lyrics are a little irreverent, but not over the top.

Pros
- Awesome album from top to bottom

Cons
- Can't share with my 2 and 3 year old just yet

This is the album I've been waiting for since TFTC. I am happy that the guys grew up, fell in love, and started families but I was afraid when that happened, I forever lost the Old 97s I fell in love with - the boys that drink a lot of whiskey and get scarred by fast women who left them heartbroken. I'm ecstatic to see they still have this in them. THANK YOU, RHETT, MURRY, KEN, AND PHILIP! THIS IS BRILLIANT!
