    In the end Cold Beer Conversation isn’t just another in a long line of superior releases, it’s a beacon of good writing, playing and singing. But it’s also all we could want or expect from a man who embodies the best that country music has to offer.

    The whole endeavor has a “live and let live” feel that fits in perfectly with Strait’s laid-back, though never sloppy, attitude.

    He's a singer that can make quiet seem compelling, and there are plenty of instances in this tight, wholly satisfying record where he demands attention by not asking for it.

    Cold Beer Conversation is a bit looser than Mr. Strait’s last album, “Love Is Everything,” with convincing flashes of western swing (“It Takes All Kinds”). But the standouts here are the love songs.
