While much of the material on Womack's sophomore effort treads well within the unspoken boundaries of Nashville romance (broken hearts, unrequited love), there are a few gems that hint of a saucy character behind the sweet voice. "I'll Think of a Reason Later" is a funny, honest portrayal of a woman meeting an old lover's new flame. "The Man Who Made My Mama Cry" is an unflinching dismissal of a prodigal father, and "I'd Rather Have What We Had" mourns for the steamy affair that led to a now-mundane marriage. Supported by a pair of Vince Gill duets, Some Things I Know effectively balances country music convention with honest emotion. --Alexandra Russell

New in plastic wrap. I love her music, but my player at home stopped working.
Brilliant traditional country with contemporary edge

"This is an outstanding album so it's difficult to pick out songs (nice problem, that). Three of the tracks (A little past Little Rock, Now you see me now you don't, I'll think of a reason later) made it on to Lee Ann's greatest hits compilation. They fairly represent this album although they aren't necessarily my favorite tracks such is the quality of the album.
The set opens with the title track, an aching ballad that sets the standard for what follows. Two other outstanding ballads (I'd rather have what we had, When the wheels are coming off) describe a couple that are still together, but whose love for each other seems to have faded. Another fine song (If you're ever down in Dallas) is about a woman who regrets giving up on a man. The final track (The preacher won't have to lie) reminds us that money isn't everything. Well, those are just a few of the great songs on this album.
Following her similarly styled eponymous debut album, it seemed that Lee Ann was going to be a standard-bearer for traditional country music in the new millennium. This was not to be, although Lee Ann eventually returned to traditional country in 2004.
If you enjoy hearing Lee Ann (or anybody else) sing traditional country, you'll surely love this album."
