Real good CD!
Perhaps this is Tanya's best original album

"From 1986 to 1992 Tanya recorded a series of albums, each of which was a masterpiece. After those albums came two albums that failed to maintain the standards we had grown accustomed to. By the time Tanya recorded this album in 1997, her career seemed to be finished. This album may just be the finest original album of the lot, even better than any of those earlier masterpieces, but did not sell in the quantities that it deserved to. It contains an excellent mix of songs on which Tanya sings as good as ever and the production is superb.Three singles were released from the album. Riding out the heartache is a defiant song about recovering from a broken relationship. Little things, the only single to make the country top ten, is about how important little things are. I don't believe that's how you feel is a great upbeat song in which Tanya pours scorn on her man who claims he's finished with her. This would surely have been a number one country hit if Tanya were still at the peak of her popularity. All the songs here are brilliant but I must mention the final song, You don't do it. It is a song about dreams that really rocks, contrary to most such songs that are laid-back.If you've already got the hits and you want to collect Tanya's original albums, this is a great place to start. And if you've got some of Tanya's other masterpieces, you will enjoy this one."
1997's most overlooked gem!

"On Tanya Tucker's 30th album she guides us on an emotional rollercoaster. Perhaps a strange parallel to her own life. But by giving us this parallel, Tucker was able to craft a highly emotional album that allows the fans to relate it to their own life.Complicated, released in conjunction with her book, Nickel Dreams, spawned the hit single, Little Things. Perhaps one of the most simplist love songs out there. But Tanya didn't just stick to ballads on this album, opening up with jazzy Ridin Out the Heartache to I Don't Believe That's How You Feel these songs make you stomp your feet. They have a New Orleans feel to them. A very different Tanya you might wonder? Love Thing sees Tanya on what she does best, singing about love, lost love and newfound love.Complicated stayed true to its singers heart, Tanya expressed herself all over the map, but you know what, it worked. Fans loved the album but radio and records did not, perhaps she is a little too rough for the radio now. I would hate to believe that...she may be no Shania, but Shania is definitely no TANYA!"
