You Get What You Give (2010)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Sep 21, 2010; Lead Performance: Zac Brown Band; Genre: Country

ZBB's sophomore effort You Get What You Give doesn't stray far from their platinum-
selling blend of country-frat jams and oceanfront jangles; Jimmy Buffett even guests. The musicianship is impeccable, but the lyrics too often pander to a certain good-time demographic for whom lines like ''La la la la…let it go'' might rate as deep. While no one wants an existential crisis at the beach barbecue, these guys really shine when they ditch the polish in favor of some bite. B
