After 2010's metal effort, Black Ribbons, Shooter Jennings returns to country rock with a focus on a familial theme, most notably on the rocking "Southern Family Anthem," the poignant "Daddy's Hands" and the swaggering "The Family Tree." Meanwhile, "The Deed and the Dollar" features rich pedal-steel over loose, bouncy bass lines -- sounding like something out of his father's songbook. Other highlights include "Manifesto #4," "Summer Dreams" and "The Long Road Ahead," where Jennings is joined by Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and singer-songwriter Eleanor Whitmore.
