Conclusion

Pro-social Content

The singer shuts out worldly woes to focus on "blessings" of health and happiness ("It’s All Good"). A loving couple makes sacrifices to pursue a dream on "Rodeo Moon." "That’s Not How It Is" emphasizes the need for communication in intimate relationships. On "Huckleberry," a girl refuses to give in sexually until she gets a wedding ring. The chart-topping "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)" honors U.S. freedom fighters and waves the flag in the face of terrorists, however . . .

Objectionable Content

Keith’s umbrage leads him to boast, "We’ll put a boot in your a--/It’s the American way." Alcohol flows as refreshment on "It’s All Good," "Rock You Baby," "Beer for My Horses" and "Good to Go to Mexico." It’s used to drown pain on "Losing My Touch." Mild profanities infect the liner notes. Images of Mrs. Robinson and sex for sale plague "Who’s Your Daddy?" ("I guess those college boys all went home . . . I got the money if you got the honey"). Keith sees a "shattered lady" alone in a cafe and woos her into bed. He and Willie Nelson pine for the days of vigilante justice, when evil was punished at the end of a lynch mob’s rope ("Beer for My Horses").

Summary Advisory

Unleashed plays up Keith’s image as a beer-drinking, blue collar roughneck wrapped in the stars and stripes. Patriotism and moments of romantic tenderness aside, the disc suffers from sexual misconduct and an overdose of vengeful attitude.
