    One of Reba's best efforts of her long career.

    Down with country radio programmers for killing "Strange." It was the freshest-sounding song to hit the country airwaves all year. I think the programmers were more interested in playing the cookie-cutter songs of young country sex pots than playing something that sounds new & fresh.

  1. The bottom line here is that Keep on Loving You may jar some longtime Reba fans on first listen, but despite the record's sound it's all her in this mix, and they will more than likely celebrate this.
  2. It’s a sturdy and at times exuberant country album with big production and McEntire’s even bigger voice leading the charge on low-key ballads (“I Keep on Lovin’ You’’), rocking kiss-offs (“Strange’’), and her signature story songs about ordinary lives (“Maggie Creek Road’’).
  3. Though her voice has aged well, few of these tunes?provide it enough of a challenge, and the ones that do often sound like something she's already done better.
