The album's musical style incorporates elements of psychedelic, jam band, jazz, R&B, gospel and folk. Guitarist/songwriter Toy Caldwell drew heavily from bluegrass and country while writing songs for the band's debut.
The lead single, "Can't You See", musically is a mixture of country rock and Southern rock. The lyrics of "Can't You See" are noted as being dark, reflecting heartache and "a man running as far away as he can to begin the process of healing himself".
In a retrospective review, Allmusic gave the album 4 out of 5 stars. Rolling Stone named the album one of the "50 rock albums every country fan should own". Paste magazine described the album as a "Southern rock classic".
