I really enjoyed listening to this new CD by Rascal Flatts. Stand is my favorite song on this album. It is a song with a very positive message that you can overcome hard times if you stay focused and don't give up. The title track is a fun upbeat track about hanging out with your gang of friends having fun. What Hurts The Most is another gem here. This is an excellent song about the pain of breaking up with someone, and the difficulty of expressing your feelings to that person. I could really relate to the lyrics of this song. Cool Thing is another highlight track here. This song is about how two people find each other and fall in love. This song is also about how it feels when the person you love leaves you. I love Gary LeVox's emotional vocals on this song. Ellsworth is a very touching song about a grandmother suffering from Alzheimers disease and how a special place conjures up memories of long ago. I love the lyrics of My Wish. This is a beautiful song about all of the good wishes of love and prosperity you could have for someone you love. Me and My Gang is a very entertaining CD. I enjoyed it very much.

Wiki

This fourth effort from the soft-rock-masquerading-as-country band Rascal Flatts moved more than 721,000 copies its first week out, which let the female-friendly trio rub elbows with some mighty heady company. Only four other country artists (Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks, and Tim McGraw) have rolled out numbers like that, and only 24 other acts total (including Eminem, 50 Cent, U2, and Coldplay). So what's the hook, besides Gary LeVox's wounded tenor and Joe Don Rooney's boy-band face? Clearly, it's the songs. Or itusuallyis. OnMe and My Gang, "What Hurts the Most" is the one that'll end up on a tape loop in your head, though "Yes, I Do" memorably frames romantic yearning and regret with ersatz reggae rhythms, and the sexy "Cool Thing" does a slow burn. The problem? New producer Dann ("King of Excess") Huff bloats too many tunes with screaming, by-the-book guitars and general bombast. And despite his über success with Faith Hill and Keith Urban, Huff has never really understood what makes country, well...country. Instead, he insultingly works in a snippet of steel guitar and a couple of family lyrics--e.g., the melodramatic "Ellsworth" is meant to pull the heartstrings of anyone who's seen the cruelty of Alzheimer's--and thinks he's thrown Nashville a bone. Worse, "Backwards" boringly reworks that hoary ol' country joke "What do you get when you play a country song backwards?," the title song is a Big & Rich ripoff, and even God gets dragged in for a ...
