Synopsis

Amazon.com
Oklahoma singer Toby Keith is neither a remarkable singer nor songwriter. Yet in his more inspired and focused moments on his sixth studio album--his first for DreamWorks--Keith does occasionally manage to transcend his journeyman's limitations and achieve a sort of workaday eloquence. On patchily conceived and executed songs like the self-written "Die with Your Boots On" and a pointless ditty called "Country Comes to Town," even Keith's hard-edged baritone swaggering over flashy, high-voltage arrangements can disguise the basic lack of musical substance and creative vision. Yet on "Heart to Heart," a tender song Keith wrote for his young son, and an exquisite story song called "New Orleans," Keith surprises by turning in heartfelt, impassioned performances that transcend the general ordinariness that is otherwise the order of the day. --Bob Allen

The title track is the Keith I enjoy. A little bravado and a whole lot of tongue firmly planted in cheek. The earnest country singer of "When Love Fades" and "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like That" (This one sounds like a Meatloaf reject) pale in comparison to the cowboy of "Country Comes to Town." I like the way Keith works a song like "Hold You, Kiss You, Love You," with the emphasis on vocals and selling the idea, but the overall effect sounds like something any country artist could put together. The problem here is there are far too many traditional sounding country songs and not enough of the songs that make Keith stand apart from the pack.
