    A landmark work by one of country's singular artists. [4 Mar 2006]
  2. The delivery of these old church songs is solemn, the accompaniment sparse, and the historical value real. [3 Mar 2006, p.102]
  3. If you’re so inclined toward this type of music, you’ll assuredly love Precious Memories. But if you think you’re not, you may be surprised.
  4. A moving, eloquent gift to Jackson's entire audience.
  5. Even if Precious Memories winds up as something slightly underwhelming, there's no denying that this is precisely the album Jackson wanted to make, one that's consistent in tone and exact in its vision.
  6. Most of the material packs as much churchy tedium as simple charm. [9 Mar 2006, p.94]
  7. The end result of all this sermonizing will likely inspire you not to renounce sin and its sordid ways, but feel the itch to grab some hooch and a few George Jones albums and have a rip-roaring time.

    One of the best of all time. A must for any lover of traditional hymns.

    This entire CD is incredible. Jesus is real and desires that all come to him willingly and completely. I believe that this album will continue to sell until it is the best seller of the year! I also believe that you will see more similar works from Alan Jackson in the future. Full Review »
