Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Stand" models bootstraps determination after being dealt a blow ("You taste what you're made of ... Get strong, wipe your hands, shake it off, then you stand"). A man needing a second chance at love appeals to the Creator of all things ("To Make Her Love Me"). "What Hurts the Most" and "Words I Couldn't Say" show fallout from not telling loved ones how we feel. On "Yes I Do" the band values prayer and refuses to live in the past. "My Wish" is a musical benediction full of hopes and dreams for someone special. Senility can't erase sweet memories of true love on "Ellsworth" ("She's in assisted livin' ... It's like her mind just quit/Oh, but bring up Grandpa, it's like someone flipped a switch"). Despite being ignored or rejected, God will always be there for people, because "He Ain't the Leavin' Kind"—a great song!

Objectionable Content

"Backwards" spells out c-r-a-p. Alcohol is an accessory to fun on the title track ("Beer and bonfires/Wide open throttle/Coors in a bottle"). More adult beverages flow on "Cool Thing," a song about an unexpected summer liaison ("We were wrapped up in a blanket, red wine buzz kickin' in ... She didn't come there lookin' for love/The cool thing was, neither did I").

Summary Advisory

Me and My Gang features catchy choruses and excellent tidings about relationships, perseverance and turning to God. A few disappointing miscues keep this project from being a Flatt-out home run.
