    His best work in years. Alan was doing the same album over and over since High Mileage in 1998... What a relief.

    Wonderful album full of wonderful songs. Truly one that his female fans should love.

    There are some people on this that voted (not to mention any name) that obviously have a vandetta against alan jackson based on political reasons, and never actually listened to this cd. This is truely a beautiful cd aestheticlly, and lyriclly.

    This is a wonderful CD, both instrumentally and vocally. Alan's voice is very senuous and moving. This CD showcases his marvelous voice. It's one of his best and I look forward to future recordings whatever they may be!

    Certainly not the typical Alan Jackson record here. Some of the tracks seem like they would be better on a smooth jazz station rather than a country station. However it is still very well done, and a very relaxing album that I for one enjoy.

    Without being a fan of country music in general, and having never listened to Alan Jackson before this record, I was really impressed with this album. There are a few perfect songs on here, and the rest are simply good.

    This is certainly more of an artsy album than a standard honky tonk ablum that alan usually does. Allison Kraus's producing on this is very well done, and Alan's amazing voice can make any song sound amazing. Overall it was an amazing combination that really turned out well.

  1. An uncommonly rich and moving album.
  2. If there's a downside to this brilliant, if unlikely pairing, it's that Krauss's somber program could benefit from something a tad more libidinous or uptempo.
