Editorial Reviews

'Most Messed Up' finds the Old 97's at their raucous best, all swagger and heart, and just a little bit tipsy. Titles like 'Wasted,' 'Intervention,' 'Wheels Off,' and 'Most Messed Up' hint at the kind of narrators Miller likes to inhabit, men who possess an appetite for indulgence and won't let a few bad decisions get in the way of a good story.

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.

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.

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!

It's got an explicit lyrics warning for a reason, because this one was recorded without holding anything back. Helluva rock band having fun at a place where they've done it all and know that they like doing and are happy with that. Longer Than You've Been Alive, the opening song, sums it all up, "I'm not crazy about songs that get self-referential/And most of this stuff should be kept confidential/But who even gives half a f*** anymore/You should know the truth, it's both a blast and a bore." More blast than bore here, get it if you like the Old 97's or if you just like rock n roll.

in the grand scheme this is a ok cd. in the old 97s catalog it is a rare turd. I loved the last record so might be inevitable that this one would miss for me. it felt like a response to maybe a mid life crisis. lots of bragging and reminiscing. to be fair I liked it better the second or 3rd time.

I've been a fan of the 97's for a decade, and while I have all their cd's, nothing compares to the raw energy and power of their live shows. This album comes close. It's raw and hard rocking with country undertones. It describes a 20 year journey as a band, with songs about the ups and downs, wild nights, pill popping, drinking, etc. It's amazing how this band, with all the original members, has continued to grow and change and continue to be awesome for 20 freaking years. Seriously. Check out this album.

Great disc for longtime 97s fans. It rocks with all the sick swagger of Wreck Your LIfe or Too Far to Care but is clearly by a band that's in their 40s, not their 20s. Having aged with this band, I appreciate it more with every listen. You go boys!

This album comes closer to the sound and spirit of Too Far to Care -- arguably the band's best album of many excellent albums -- than anything the Old 97's have done since then. It hits a bulls-eye on the heart of this band's signature sound: raucous, bar-band abandon. This alone is enough to bring a smile to longtime fans like myself. The music is pure 97's: an irresistible,toe-tapping burst of joy, with the extra bonus of Rhett's characteristic clever wordplay. As such, it is instantly familiar and a ton of fun. That said, I don't think there are any songs here that match the perfection of Salome or Big Brown Eyes, so I won't call it an instant classic or say it is as good as TFTC. But the thing is, an "OK" Old 97's song has more melody, humor, and uplifting energy than most of today's bands' best stuff. If this album were by anyone else I'd give it 5 stars without hesitation -- so I can't give these guys 4 just because I know they've done even better. I will be seeing the band in a couple weeks, and can't wait to see these songs performed live as I know they will rock big-time.
