Dierks Bentley's Up On The Ridge album is not due for release until June 8, but copies were already on sale after some of his UOTR shows and available for pre-order through the fan club.
Country Weekly's review calls it a "landmark masterpiece from Dierks", "exceeds expectations", "some of Dierks' most poignant songwriting to date," and "artisitic" are all terms used to describe the album.
CW's 4.5 rating translates to more than Outstanding, but just shy of an Instant Classic.
This review is a welcome improvement to the review of Long Trip alone, which only garnered 2 stars.
Be sure to pick up your copy of the June 7 issue, or keep checking your mail box if you're a subscriber! It's a keeper!
