Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Of all the country music artists to break big in the '90s, Alan Jackson best straddles the genre's sense of tradition and its newfound modern sheen. More than any other superstar, the Georgia native clings to the age-old sound of fiddles, steel guitars, and rhythms that shuffle and swing. Still, on his third and his most successful album, Jackson proves how well he can turn traditional sounds into commercially accessible hits. "Chattahoochee" and "She's Got the Rhythm (And I've Got the Blues)" display his flair for bringing bright detail and a casual sense of fun to uptempo tunes. Meanwhile, ballads such as "Tonight I Climbed the Wall" show that he can create heartbreakers equal to those of his heroes, Merle Haggard and George Jones. --Michael McCall

One Of His Best
James E. Bagley | Sanatoga, PA USA | 04/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike Garth Brooks and Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson has never had trouble staying within the boundaries of traditional country music. His baritone twang is so authentic that when he sings about settling for a "burger and a grape snowcone," you believe him. This album, Jackson's third, is a seamless collection of tunes which sometimes are lacking a little in substance, but are always entertaining.A lot of the songs Jackson writes deal with classic country themes. The opening footstomper "Chattahoochie" is a fond look at growing up in the south, while the heart-rending ballad "Tonight I Climb The Walls" evokes memories of vintage George Jones. The lilting island flavor of "Tropical Depression" adds a nice change of pace.Jackson co-wrote fewer songs than usual (only seven this time around). The other three are among the lighter tunes on the album and provide some balance. "I Don't Need The Booze (To Get A Buzz On)" is an anti-drinking song while "She Likes It Too" was written by two former Jackson collaborators who effectively capture some of his loves (motorcycles, long hair, country music) and make it instantly identifiable with the man. The closer, "Mercury Blues," added some life to the tired car genre has gone on to become a Jackson fan favorite."
Really good.

"I found this album on discount, and I remembered hearing that it was pretty good, plus "Chattahoochee" was a big part of my musical childhood, so I decided to buy it and give it a spin.

Best $6 I ever spent. This album swings, boogies, and even provides a few quiet ballads. Nearly every song is a gem.

I recommend it to anyone who's interested in Alan."
