peyton’s review published on Letterboxd:
I think that Not Ready to Make Nice is one of the corniest songs the dixie chicks ever put out… whenever they did something political they go from from camp to corny in a second as politics are inherently really embarrassing… another example being traveling solider… most cringe song in discography or changing their name to ‘the chicks’ lol. But It’s fantastic music. Like... full body chills. I can’t apologize. I also love the south because of their consistent and affective ability to organize against art they dislike to its complete demise lol. Somehow they are able to maintain the same archaic “burn books” mentality into modernity… and consequently crushed the momentum of one of the best girls bands ever produced. Taylor Swifts grave warning. Such a tragic and unimportant part of history.
(Not to mention the “saddam’s angels” body paint, genius women)
