Synopsis

Amazon.com
Mila Mason's debut album, That's Enough of That, has already yielded two Top 20 country hits, the title track and "Dark Horse." There's very little traditional country content in these two singles or in their eight brethren, however. Instead this former model from Kentucky is yet another Nashville newcomer trying to imitate the Southern-California soft-rock of Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, and Christine McVie. There's nothing wrong with this sub-genre--either in its '70s Hollywood incarnation or its '90s Music Row version--and such artists as Trisha Yearwood, Kim Richey, and Matraca Berg have squeezed brilliant music out of this formula. Mason, though, has neither the voice nor the material to match their accomplishments. Mason has a pleasant enough soprano, but without the power or range to separate herself from the parade of videogenic new singers marching out of Nashville these days. Her producer Blake Mevis, who has worked with everyone from George Strait to Lorrie Morgan, has given her country-pop arrangements that stand up to anything in town without standing apart from any of it. The album's 10 songs represent the work of 21 different songwriters, including such proven hitmakers as Bob DiPiero, Mark D. Sanders, and Gary Scruggs, but this wasn't their top-drawer material. Too many songs turn on contrived puns (a homely man is "Hot to Molly;" her love is riding a "Dark Horse") or maudlin platitudes (you'll never find a "Heart Without a Past;" she shouldn't think of her ex but "Tonight I Know I Will"). --Geoffrey Himes

A great country voice singing good, fun pop/country songs.

"This is about as good a pop/country album as you are likely to hear from today's country music industry. I fell in love with Mila Mason's voice when I heard the single "Dark Horse" on the radio. She puts a ton of emotion behind her songs. You can really hear the heartache on ballads like "Tonight I Know I Will" and "Heart Without A Past"!"

"Lucky for me to find this at a garage sale! I didn't quite know what I was getting, but it certainly is a treat. It's my introduction to Mila Mason who has an expressive country voice that works well on the rockers like "That's What I Call Love" & "That's Enough of That." "I Don't Need A Man to Live With" has a good twist as Mila croons that she wants a man she can't live without. On the slower tracks like "Heart Without A Past," Mason shows she can belt with the best of them, guaranteed to put a tear in your beer. "Dark Horse" was the single & pulses with a midtempo beat. Mason's freshman set from 1996 was an excellent first outing. Enjoy!"

"Long time ago, I went to Kentucky to visit my relatives! I was with my Aunt June me and her and my grandpa we ran around to spend some time together. So, we went to a store inside they had the music department found this cd there I forget the name of the store-so, my grandpa is so nice enough to buy this cd for me I was gonna buy it with my money but anyhow my grandpa ended up buying it for me. I really really like this cd very very much very much all the songs on every track I give it a score-20-I recommend this cd to everybody out there who are a big Mila Mason fan like me."
