More than Cowboy Culture
Garry Lafollette | Winchester, VA | 01/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a former resident of Arizona I know that I can put on any of Ian's discs, close my eyes, and feel as though I'm back in the west - Ian's music deserves every good thing that has ever been said or written about it's ability to turn western life to art, but in all the dust and driving snow we may have done him an injustice in painting him as JUST a genre artist. "Lights of Larame" and "Springtime in Alberta" are two of the most breathtakingly beautiful songs I know of period. "Black Nights" is good ol hard country, "Jaquima...", and "Rocks..." are easy up tempo tracks that could be top ten material if someone named Garth had done them... Someone named Bob Wills did songs that came close, but seldom surpassed "You're not alone." It ain't just Cowboy Culture... It's great music."
An unpretentious portrayal of the west, it's land and people
Garry Lafollette | 06/20/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ian Tyson is an old hand with an ever-fresh eye for painting in song the lifestyles and land of the west he loves and bemoans because of its too-rapid disappearance. His catchy melodies rope you in like the cattle he brands. His unique perspective colors your minds eye like the rainbows arcing over the range. His deep melodic voice both thunders and whispers into your heart and mind like the chinook winds and the gentle prairie breezes that presage the night. The breadth of his musical style, like the sparkling midnight skies, holds you and surprises you, tantalizes you and entertains you. The skies, the land and people tumble from his heart. His love for this land and lifestyle are brilliantly captured for your enjoyment. Sit down in front of your fireplace and be entertained by a master!"
Very authentic

"Ian is able to capture some of the more subtle nuances of the cowboy lifestyle in his lyrics. For those of us who have actually made a living "riding the rough-string for money" or been left to cope, Ian's music reminds of the best times, but also the times we wish we could forget with uncommon clarity."
