    This is indulgent hillbilly music. Sounds like he's singing out of his gills. it must be that tight-jeaned charisma that got him the record deal.

    Don't pay any mind to the recording company stooges in the "USER ratings" section who give this one phony "10"s pretending to be normal people....this album is not only far from perfect, it's actually not very good at all.

  1. Just Who I Am just manages from sinking into adult contemporary murk, even if it's hard to shake the feeling that Chesney is spending too much time acting how his audience expects him to be instead of just being who he is.
  2. Chesney gets better with age. There are radio hits here: 'Never Wanted Nothing More' has already hit No. 1 and second single 'Don't Blink' is off to a fast start, but there's depth, too.

    It feels like a record assembled by a focus group. [Oct 2007, p.107]
