"Country fans have always had mixed feelings about Glen but this album comes closer to traditional country than you might expect from Glen despite the presence of electric guitars, synthesizers and drums. There is no lush orchestra, although there is a violin. However, there are also acoustic and bass guitars, piano, mandola, fiddle and banjo and the way the sound comes across, it certainly sounds not too far removed from traditional country.
The songs are fascinating. They include a duet with Steve Wariner on a cover of Alain Toussaint's You are the one and a duet with Lacy J Dalton on Woodcarver, which is probably an original song and is an outstanding song. There is an instrumental cover of the William Tell overture - it is interesting to hear this done country style. Glen does excellent covers of Cheating is, a seventies country hit for Barbara Fairchild, and She's gone gone gone, an old Harlan Howard song. Larry Gatlin wrote If I could only get my hands on you - again, Glen sings this superbly. The remaining songs (On a good night, Walking in the sun, Tied to the tracks, Somebody's leaving, Jesus on your mind) are all excellent. I've not heard them elsewhere and they may all be original songs.
Glen never sounded better than on this album, which is a classic. If you want to hear Glen singing country music, this album is well worth searching for. It's better than any other album I've heard of his (and I've heard a few)."
