Kentucky is their fifth album and it feels like an extension of what they have always done. There isn't much new here. The album has some strong songs like The Way of the Future, Shakin' My Cage and the soulful Soul Machine, but the problem with the album is most of it is pretty average. Some of the songs have good riffs, but so-so melodies and other songs have so-so riffs and good melodies. Overall, the songs feel like they should be a lot better than what they actually are. I'm not saying these songs are bad, it is just that they could have been so much more. This album also contains a cover of the Edwin Starr classic War and it is horrible. On a side note, various editions offer up to five different bonus songs and I have not heard those at all. This is review is for the standard release of the album only. If you know this band and dig what they've done in the past, you should still get the album, just understand it is probably their weakest album so far in their career.
