Because his singing is solid but unremarkable, Alan Jackson tends to be only as good as his song selection. So on several tracks here--his own composition "Buicks To The Moon," for example, or Tom T. Hall's slighter-than-it-fancies-itself "Little Bitty"--he isn't exactly sunk by clunky metaphors and cliched arrangements, but he can't rise above them either. However, on the title track here, and on the searing, twangy power ballad "Between The Devil And Me," he's as good as he's ever been. Which is very good indeed. --David Cantwell

"You can never knock traditional country music,and this album is yet another in a long-line to prove that statement. Alan Jackson has a powerful,strong voice and expresses it towards us in an emotional and touching way. The songs are wonderful-if you dwell on lyrics or if you enjoy singing along. There's catchy songs like 'Little Bitty' and 'There Goes',emotional songs-'Between the Devil and Me','Walk on Rocks'and an incredibly moving love song entitled 'Buicks to the Moon'. Pick up this album,learn an honest lesson in life and think over what you've learnt-country music is everything"
One of many great albums from Alan

"There were four singles released from this album. The title track is about how all life's pleasures (including his partner) are ruining him and he's going to have to give them up. Little bitty was written by Tom T Hall and would surely have been a major hit for him had he written it in the seventies. However, he wrote it long after most people had lost interest in his music, so Tom was grateful to Alan for having a number one country hit with it and rekindling interest in his own music. Who's cheating who was originally a number one country hit for the brilliant but largely forgotten pop-country singer Charly McClain. Alan adapted it to his own style and had a top ten country hit with it. The fourth single was There goes, a song about conflicting emotions.Buicks to the moon is one of those songs pledging love to eternity. This song and all four singles have since been released on Greatest hits 2, so if you've bought that, you may wonder why you should buy this. The reason, of course, is the other five songs. Between the devil and me is a great song about temptation. A house with no curtains is a very sad song, in which Alan describes a heartache that is there for all to see. Walk on the rocks, another sad song, is a cautionary tale about a long-term prisoner meeting his son after his release. Must've had a ball is about a hangover so it's not quite as cheerful as the title suggests, although Alan gives the impression of contentment. The final song, It's time you learned about goodbye, is a great song about a man finally not being able to take any more If you are a fan of country music, you can't really go wrong buying any Alan Jackson album, as they are all great. While this is by no means his strongest, it is still much better than most other country singers could ever hope to record. It is the sheer consistency of his music that causes him to remain one of the hottest country singers around."
