Feisty sisters don't really mean it

"This excellent album of contemporary country music from 1991 contains the track, Men, in which they make clear that they will stand no nonsense from men. You must not confuse it with another song of the same title that Charly McClain recorded a decade or so earlier, although these two very different songs embody the same basic ideas. Men should be reassured by the sisters' acknowledgement that you just can't shoot them, also that they are useful for taking the sisters to dinner and for opening the door. Despite the apparently limited usefulness of men these days, this is the best track on the album. The sisters obviously still need their men as some of the other songs they've recorded on this and other albums makes clear.There are some excellent ballads - That makes one of us, Somebody else's moon, You take me for granted, The blues don't stand a chance, Let not your heart be troubled, What about tonight - but it is the upbeat songs that really stand out - A step in the right direction, Too much fun, Men and It's getting around.This was their last album to make a significant impact and is certainly one of their best original albums. Best of the lot was their debut album but, as I write this, I'm still waiting for it to be made available on CD."
