The Power of Her Voice is Sublime
Judith Agee | SmallTown, Indiana USA | 11/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD bodes very well for Trisha's continuing collaboration with Big Machine Records. I don't know how it will do commercially, what with the vagaries of country radio,but, artistically it is, for this listener, an unqualified success.
The CD starts out with the powerhouse vocal performance of the title track.
Trisha lets it rip. Big sound, bold emotion and the power of her voice.
Next she tones it down for a beautiful gentle ballad, "This is me you're talking to".
Just Trisha, not even any harmony vocals and a gentle arrangement of strings and piano to accompany her. BEEYOUTEEFUL.
Another up-tempo tune follows. "They Call It Falling For A Reason". Written by one of Trisha's favorite tunesmiths, the ultra-talented and prolific Matraca Berg. All about falling in love. (Its a tumbling rush, its a helpless kind of feeling). It is a great song!
"Nothing 'Bout Memphis" is about a woman who doesn't want to reveal to her current love, a great passion she shared with someone else.( All he sees is that big muddy river and the ghost of Elvis). Kinda bluesy.
Written by Jessi Alexander who sings harmony vocals on they Call it Falling, but not on the song she penned.
"We Tried" is close to acoustic. Lovely background vocals by Sonya Issacs and
the ubiquitous Wes Hightower. He must have worked with everyone in Nashville:}
Up-tempo tune about giving love and life your best shot. Nice guitar work by Billy Joe Walker, Jr. Trisha's band member Johnny Garcia is studio musician for most of the tracks.
Yet another gorgeous story song is "Let The Wind Chase You" with Keith Urban.
Just the opposite of "We Tried". (I don't want to work for your love, I don't want to try to be something that your looking for).
Another solid track. Trisha's vocals and the musical arrangements on this are just
so perfect. Not overproduced at all. You hear Trisha's voice equally with everything. She is hitting some gorgeous notes. Exquisite phrasing as always.
A stunning song, "The Dreaming Fields", again by Matraca Berg about America's Farmers. (Oh the sun rolls down, big as a miracle, and fades from the midwest sky). Wonderful piano work by Steve Nathan.
I guess my favorite out of all these wonderful tracks would be
"Cowboys Are My Weakness" GREAT VOCAL FUN. Delightful lyrics.
(I love to hear my name inside a southern drawl, a man who takes his time, you know what I mean, y'all). I have no idea what country radio is all about anymore, but THIS song should/would be a smash hit as far as this listener is concerned.
A Leslie Satcher/Billy Joe Walker, Jr tune "Help Me" My take on it is the give and take in relationships, how sometimes you can find your strength in your partners love.
"Not A Bad Thing" is about possibilities in love and life after you have lost someone significant in your life. Very breezy delivery for a serious subject but it works.
"Nothing About You Is Good For Me" by Karyn Rochelle who sings background on several tracks. Some good guitar going on here, and some sassy vocals.
(Don't call my Mama, don't call my sister, don't nobody cares whats on your mind). Great driving down the road song to sing along with.
A song with the unlikely title of "Drown Me" written by Jessi Alexander
is just a damn fine country song. I won't tell you about it. I'll let Trisha reveal it all for you:}.
They just don't write them better than this.
That is something Trisha and her team have always done, choose songs with memorable lyric content. This CD is 13 tracks of stellar songwriting.
Trisha ends with a song to her Daddy. "Sing You Back To Me"
(A miracle of page and pen, you'd hear it and be here again).
Just beautiful. Trisha-classy. Just Trisha on vocals, accompanied with acoustic guitar.
I bought it this afternoon and have listened non-stop since.
I admit to being a tiny bit disappointed in Jasper County, so I was really
anxious to see what Big Machine was going to let Trisha do.
I saw Trisha in concert in Sept and she indicated it was a really good experience
working with Big Machine. I think the results sing for themselves.
Awesome recording.

"A great collection of barn burning country rock and gorgeous ballads. Trisha ventures outside previous comfort zones with a novelty song (Cowboys Are My Weakness) and a celtic tinged story song (The Dreaming Fields) with great results. What holds the album together are the gorgeous vocals by Trisha- her strongest studio singing yet, and the high quality of the songs- especially the lyrics. A great ALBUM- from start to finish."
Amazing Improvement for an already wonderful artist
Kimberlie | Arlington, TX United States | 12/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Throughout the years I've owned a couple of Trisha's CD's, but I can't really say I'm a huge fan. Just an average fan. I bought this CD to freshen up my music library, and because of the high reviews. It was money well spent! Other reviewers have said better what the album is all about, song by song. I'm just truly amazed to be so enthralled by the smoothness and clarity of her vocals, the soft and flowing ballads, and the lyrics that weave stories I can relate to. I have a ton of CDs from other artists that do one or two of those things well, but HURRAY to Trisha for finding the perfect blend of all three. She continues to top her previous albums with this one, showing amazing improvement for an artist who had already achieved great success.

If I don't buy another CD for a while, it's because I'm still listening to this one! Highly recommended!"
