Having found a suitable home at Malaco, the leading label of the '80s and '90s for Southern soul-blues, Little Milton has settled into a prolific recording schedule; Cheatin' Habit is already his tenth CD for the label (eleventh, if you count a greatest-hits compilation). It contains ingredients to satisfy his core audience, but is not one of his best. The songs are mostly of the cheatin' or leavin' variety (he's cheating or she's cheating, he's leaving or she's leaving). The guitar fills and horn parts are quite formulaic.
