"Bruce Robison is probably one of the best singer/songwriters out there. He stands alone from his brother Charlie and his sister-in-law Emily (Dixie Chicks). He has proven his songwriting abilities through numerous songs recorded by other arists (including Tim McGraw's "Angry All The Time", included on this CD).Bruce starts the album off with "Rayne, Louisiana," a duet with his brother about leaving the small town for the city. "Wrapped" is a catchy love-song, basically about love at first sight, time and time again. "Angry All The Time" is much better than McGraw's version, and "When I Loved You", a duet with his wife Kelly Willis, is about ignorance of love until after the fact."My Brother and Me," probably the highlight of the album, is sang like an autobiography--and for all I know, it is! "Desperately" as a haunting melody, but "12 Bar Blues" comes out swinging honkey-tonk style. "Go To Your Heart" stands out on the album, for it is a slow ballad of love. "I Dream Too" is uplifting, but "End Like That" brings you back to Earth, for it asks why couldn't a relationship end in a better way? The final two tracks, "Don't You ever Call My Name" and "See You Around" are bluegrass songs, and make a nice ending.I know that was long and probably boring, but I had to explain the CD song-for-song so you could know the range of moods and themes it carries. Bruce Robison is like no other, able to place words exactly where they are needed, then use his voice to reach out and grab your heart for dear life. Buy this CD. There's no way in Heaven or Hell that you won't be moved by it."

"this is an amazing disc. Try to find the original release of this album, by the same title, that has 2 tracks not included on this version. Still a great addition to any music collection."

"Bruce Robison is quickly becoming one of my favorite country artist and this album is one reason why. "My Brother & Me" is my favorite track on this album, but is by no means the only one you'll want to listen to over and over. Excellent for anyone who enjoys good music. Also, check out Charlie Robison, Bruce's brother, if you like this album."
