Good early 90's country

"This is one of the CD's I got for my 12th birthday, along with my first CD player, so I'll try to keep my review from being clouded by nostalgia. I think the album is solid from top to bottom: it's a fair representation of Alabama's sound in the early 90's, with plenty of slick ballads and upbeat, uptempo songs. The best cuts are The Cheap Seats, Still Goin' Strong (with a horn section!), That Feeling, and of course Reckless, the first single.2 points:1) Angels Among Us is a classic, but you should be aware that the version on this album is NOT the popular single version. The vocals here are slightly different. The popular vocal reprise version is on Greatest Hits Vol. III.
2) The cover art is awesome. It seems like very few country albums (like Garth's In Pieces) have any sort of theme as far as art direction goes, so it's nice when an artist tries something unique."
