It doesn't really matter that John Michael Montgomery replicates the formula of its hit predecessor, Kickin' It Up. Even though it has the same country-pop ballads, slick country-rock and honky tonk numbers that made Kickin' It Up a monster commercial success, the record doesn't sound dull or repetitive. Most of the album's success is due to the clean, commercial production, which makes even the weak material entertaining.
