    Set You Free doesn't sound like every other album coming out of the Nashville factory these days-and that's definitely a good thing.

    On his ninth disc, he's beginning to let a small amount of sunshine in.

    He may offer less of an alternative than he once did, but that old-school concern and a wider sonic palette keep Allan just this side of the mainstream.

    The tunes on Set You Free will give his long-time followers more than they could have hoped for, while garnering new fans coast-to-coast.

    There are a couple of missteps here.... [But] what really stands out here are the oddball numbers, the ones where Gary Allan allows himself to stretch just a bit.

    When all the songs are put together, it adds up to an album that's easy to enjoy.
