Iím not sure how Rehab got a second chance with a major label and itís pretty much the weirdest label situation in 2008 with Epic kind of trying to undermine Universal Republicís Rehab debut. The first two songs on this album ARE HORRIBLE, not good, not good at all. And it if you randomly start this record knowing nothing about Rehab thereís a good chance that this would turn you off of them on a permanent basisÖ Luckily for this record though it gets quite a bit better after that, climaxing with ďBartender SongĒ a classic track thatís pretty-much an anthem to anyone thatís ever lived in a trailer park. Other than that the album is at itís strongest through the last five songs which you can hear more singing than rapping and more guitars and less beats; generally itís more melodic and thus better. Rehabís Universal Republic debut isnít anything to admire for years to come and itís not going to win any awards, but itís still a good album thatís better than you would expect for something that was pretty much unexpected.
