Review Expert : Rolling Stone (2/14/02, p.65) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Finds the youngest Hank moving even further into Grandpa's shadows, with a raw, acoustic sound..." Entertainment Weekly (2/01/02, p.106) - "Screw-ups and down-and-outers guzzle their poisons and bemoan their prisons all over [this CD]...Hank III's authentic all right; his hard living shows in his hangover twang and his band of whiskey-twisted traditionalists..." - Rating: B Q (1/02, p.108) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...yodel[s] and howl[s] at the moon without a trace of irony....slapped bass and yearning steel guitar..."

Recording information: New Reflections. Unknown Contributor Role: D.D. Rather than hide from his musical legacy, the grandson of Hank Williams spends most of his second album wholeheartedly embracing grandpa's formidable work. While all the songs on LOVESICK, BROKE & DRIFTIN' are self-penned, Hank III and producer Joe Funderburk go out of their way to painstakingly emulate the sound of vintage Hank Williams recordings; instrumentation, arrangements, recording equipment, the whole nine yards. Naturally, there's no way the young Hank can approach his grandfather's songwriting mastery (neither can anyone else, and he'd be a fool to try), but the voice is eerily similar to that of the country icon, and Hank III knows just how to employ it for maximum chill factor. Here and there, Williams's rock & roll roots peek out just a bit, but for the most part, this is a sincere musical love letter to the original honky-tonk style and it's foremost practitioner.
