  • Summary: Lee Ann Womack guests on the Texan's 33rd album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. Strait's 33rd CD is as solid as Nos. 32, 31, et al., even if not every song is Alamo-level memorable. [24 Jun 2005, p.162]
  2. There's nothing new or surprising here, but it's a completely satisfying listen thanks to the strong material, sustained mood, and Strait's unhurried, confident performance.
  3. Somewhere Down in Texas could have benefited from the addition of an irresistible rhythm tune or another example of the western swing that Strait embraced so fervently early in his career.
  4. The album is short (less than 40 minutes), elegant and neat almost to a fault, with no extra instruments or extra verses. [27 Jun 2005]
  5. Easily Strait’s worst album in over a decade.
