We gave it a B

As a singer, Marty Stuart has all the zip of unbuttered toast, and as a writer, too many of his songs float aimlessly, like helium balloons toward the heavens. Yet Stuart has genuine love for the early country greats and injects his own work with such impassioned strains of old hillbilly styles, that he charms in spite of his limitations. The standout cuts on Love and Lucks include the bluegrassy ”Oh, What a Silent Night” and ”I Ain’t Giving Up on Love,” a George Jones-like romp through the sexes. B
