The Heat, finds the South Carolina-bred Rinehart brothers channeling a sanctified cross between John Mellencamp and the Band. The result is almost impossible not to like, regardless of any reservations secular fans may have about groups that win Dove Awards. With a folk-blues base, there's classic rock warmth in the recording and the ringtone-ready feel the adult alternative types are into these days. That means this will fit in perfectly next to your new Jack Johnson maxi-single, but you can feel OK about it.
