This is the album when everything finally came together for the Inbreds, but it was unfortunately also their last release as a band. True, there's not much you can do with a bass and drum combo before the idea starts to run a little stale, and it's commendable that O'Neill and Ullrich decided to stop the machine before it ended up going that far, but it still leaves the listener wanting more -- especially after hearing this little masterpiece. The songwriting has really reached its pinnacle, in that Halifaxian artist kind of way, and the polished mid-tempo numbers really speak to the listener. Granted, some songs are forgettable, but the ones that hit the mark do so with a bull's-eye. The Inbreds' best material is here, including the stripped-down "Is It the Right Time," the album's single, "Attitude," and the drop-everything rocker "Yelverton Hill." Sure, it's sad that Winning Hearts marks the end of the Inbreds' saga, but it was good while it lasted.
