Simply Flawless
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Without mincing words, this has to be one of the top 10 country albums ever recorded. Vern Gosdin has never gotten the recognition he deserves, but his recordings are easily in the same class as Jones, Haggard, Williams, and all the other giants that have created the genre that lives on despite Nashville's dumbed down attempts to "MTV"-ize today's "country" music.This is Vern at his very best. His vocals are impeccable - one listen and you'll understand why he is sometimes called simply "The Voice". The album flows from one song to the next - in a sense country's own "Sgt. Pepper". The highly orchestrated songs ("Today My World Slipped Away", "I Wonder Where We'd Be Tonight", etc.) are a wonderful compliment to the down-home acoustic touches such as "Way Down Deep" and "My Heart Is In Good Hands". "I'll Try" has to be one of the prettiest country songs ever (and what a "hook" it has, as do many of the other songs). There are just no throw-aways. The background vocals are stunning, and Sonny Garrish deserves mention for his steel work - sparse, almost invisible, and then "wham", a beautiful stomach-churning drop of a lick.If you like traditional country, do yourself a favor and buy this CD. It won't take many listens until it becomes a treasure in your collection."

"Undoubtedly, one of the best country recordings ever released. Make no mistake - this is not the hatcrap that Nashville seems to crank out more and more of these days - there is no filler here. This is bone-deep, gut-bucket country - each song resonates with the hard-earned wisdom of one who has deeply loved (and mostly lost). "If You're Gonna Do Me Wrong", "Today, My World Slipped Away", and "I Wonder Where We'd Be Tonight" are classics that still cut unerringly straight to the soul - these songs carry the full weight that fresh heartbreak brings...stark but honest hurt before it is twisted by bitterness. On the other hand, the upbeat numbers "I Feel Love Closin' In", "Way Down Deep", "I Couldn't Love You More", and "My Heart Is In Good Hands", Vern sings with the confidence and trust of new love found. Every effort on this CD strikes true to the core - couple this with great old fashioned harmony back-up singing and flawless production, and you get a recording that you can play repeatedly over the years and not lose any respect for. Pay your money folks - this one is worth every dime."

"Vern Gosdin's ballads are truely heartbreakers you ever experience hearing. Songs like "If You're Gonna Do Me Wrong", "Chisled in Stone", "Is it Raining at Your House" will bring you tears to the your eyes. He got some good fast ones too...."
