    A landmark work by one of country's singular artists. [4 Mar 2006]
  2. 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.
  3. The delivery of these old church songs is solemn, the accompaniment sparse, and the historical value real. [3 Mar 2006, p.102]
  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. 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.
  7. Most of the material packs as much churchy tedium as simple charm. [9 Mar 2006, p.94]
