AllMusic Review by

Despite the relative ugliness of the band's name (which goes double for the album title), the Meat Purveyors' Sweet in the Pants is a surprisingly faithful slice of contemporary alt-country sounds. Leaning heavily toward progressive bluegrass, the group is distinguished by the superb vocals of Jo Walston and the supple guitar work of Bill Anderson; they also have good taste in songs, covering material from Elvis Presley, Bill Monroe and Merle Haggard.
