Given the megasuccess of Sugarland's 2009 chart-topping live CD, Live on the Inside, it's no wonder the Grammy-winning country duo's fourth studio disc feels custom-made for arena stages. Hearty, anthemic tunes like "As We Are" burst with sing-along choruses. And Jennifer Nettles' voice is more crystalline than ever on a sprinkling of pared-down ballads. (Mercury Nashville)
