This is Brad Paisley's debut album.
The first song on the cd "Long Sermon" sets the pace for a very good collection of songs with an organ fading out to end the song.

"Me Neither" is loaded with lyrical humor. The "musicianship", for lack of a better word, is fantastic on that track! If it hasn't yet, this song should find a place on a "Best of" or "Greatest Hits" cd.

"Don't Breathe" is another of Paisley's songs for me where the Telecaster licks grab my attention throughout the song. The lyrics and melody have traditional country written all over them.

"It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway" is another tongue-in-cheek love song that Paisley works so well. This tune is fast-paced and entertaining on a cd that has it share of heartfelt ballads.

I can't pass up a chance to share my impression of the instrumental "The Nervous Breakdown". Frantic, hysteric are two words that come to mind when I hear that song. Brad Paisley displays a rare skill at pulling off some serious pickin' at breakneck speed.
I really like that instrumental!

There is a variety of material on this cd and all of it is traditional country at it's best in my book!

Brad Paisley is one of my husband's favorite country singers. However, he started listening to him a couple of years this CD was a great addition to the more recent stuff. Proves his writing style hasn't changed...why change what works?

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not usually fond of the new talent that comes into country music nowadays. They always seem too untraditional and pop for my tastes. However, I'm MORE than willing to make an exception for Brad Paisley. He's one of the most talented new artists I've heard in a long time! He sings traditional country with a bit of humor in some of the songs on his debut album "Who Needs Pictures." In fact, the songs Me Neither and It Never Would've Worked Out Anyway are very comical. However, he can also be serious when he's singing about memories he has of a breakup (Who Needs Pictures) or the love of a step father (He Didn't Have To Be). I highly recommend this album to any country music fan! You will be amazed at the talent of this newcomer. I hope we hear much more from Brad Paisley in the future!"

"When Brad Paisley was recently selected to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry, he invoked the memory of Roy Acuff and Minnie Pearl. Many of the other cowboy hatted rock and rollers proliferating out of Nashville these days may have mouthed similar tributes. However, while it's highly questionable if the likes of Garth Brooks or Shania Twain even heard of Mr. Acuff or Miss Minnie before they attempted to snare country's loyal fan base, Brad Paisley's debut CD pays musical homage to Nashville's traditionalism.Over the last few years, Lee Ann Womack and Chely Wright have done their best to get Nashville back on track, but its been quite a while since a male country newcomer was truly country. Songs like "Who Needs Pictures," "Sleepin' on the Foldout," and "It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway" would not have been out of place among Ernest Tubb's repertoire. The tasteful remake of gospel standard "In the Garden" is a welcome addition that seems impossible to imagine as a track on a Dixie Chicks or Faith Hill CD.Even Brad's appearance is a happy throwback to country's better era. On the cover, his ten-gallon hat fits naturally unlike the Coca-Cola Cowboy style seen on so many of his contemporaries. His hair is refreshingly short, and he doesn't appear to be seeking the hunk status that populates so many sleazy videos these days. It's his music that he's selling because it stands by itself far better than the rocking sounds of Keith Urban, Billy Ray Cyrus, and so many of the other clones.It looks like George Strait, Randy Travis, and Clint Black have a new member of their genuine country club, and Minne Pearl and Roy Acuff can rest peacefully again. Brad Paisley is bringing country back!"
