Extraordinary Piece of Craftsmanship

"As described by one music critic this is a Materswork! Every track here is sung with honest emotion, and thus makes every song worthy of repeated listenings. Perhaps better than anyone in the business today, Randy Travis understands a songs lyrics and sets about translating the story of the song as it was intended in its writing. As with most of Randys song selections,it is difficult not to be swept up in the emotions of the melodies and story that each tells. However, his rendition of Roger Millers King of the Road is the standout cut here. He gives the down and out vacrant some class by not stripping away what little dignity he has left with his gentle delivery. The humorous "Ants On A Log" is a gentle reminder to us all, though we are different we all face the same ups and downs that life brings. Future Mr Me and I Can Almost Hear Her Wings is classic Randy...touching on the different emotions that love can bring. This album shows once again why Randy has been able to sustain the loyal following he does...because those who have followed his musical and now movie career know that you will get the very best that Randy has to offer!"
100% classic country

"This is a flawless recording, and one of those rare CDs one could keep playing all day long and it would still sound fresh on the tenth spin; the musicianship is astoundingly good, from some of the best instrumentalists in the business, and Randy's vocals are nothing short of perfect.
All twelve songs are terrific, with wonderful lyrics and melodies, both for the tender love songs, and the up-tempo numbers, ending with the humorous, philosophical "Ants on a Log". Randy co-wrote three beautiful, sentimental songs: "The Future Mister Me", "I Wish it Would Rain", and "I Can Almost Hear Her Wings" (which has words that make me almost weep).
Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) wrote "Are We in Trouble Now", which is a lovely smooth ballad, and the cover of Roger Miller's "King of the Road" is a delight, with some marvelous work on bass.
There are foot-stomping dance songs, like "Would I", and "If it ain't One Thing, it's Another" (which has some fabulous honkey-tonk piano), and they blend well with the slower songs; there is a flowing quality to this CD, as if every note was meant to be, and has found its ideal place.
The sound is superb, the foldout insert has recording info but no lyrics, and total time is 41'23.
If you want some masterful traditional country music, look no further."
