  1. As an Alan Jackson album, Freight Train is so consistently likable that it makes me imagine that he might keep getting better over time, as well.
  2. This isn’t as consistently deeply moving nor as stylistically outside-the-box as his Alison Krauss-produced 2006 collection “Like Red On a Rose,” just down-the-middle country by one of the most dependably rewarding artists that genre has to offer.
  3. Although the style vs. substance debate has been raging for more than 50 years along Nashville's Music Row, there's no mystery about which side Alan Jackson falls on.
  4. There isn’t anything revelatory or strikingly different here--just the solid, precise craftsmanship of an artist now deep into his career.
  5. The results float comfortably in the haze of Jackson's 20 year career. If you hate surprises, he's your guy.
