More Than Alright

"This is a great album from Gary Allan. His fourth album shows the honky tonker showcasing more bawdy tunes than he has on his previous albums. The big hit from the album was the #1 hit "Man To Man", which was the third single from the album. Other released singles include the honky tonk driven "Man Of Me" and the ballad "The One". The title track was meant to be the fourth single, which would have been a controversial release, but instead they pushed for a the first single from his SEE IF I CARE album."The Devil's Candy" is one of my favorites, a great uptempo tune with a great chorus. His version of "What I'd Say" is well done, very haunting. "I'm Doing My Best", "I Don't Look Back" and "What's On My Mind" are other good uptempo country tunes. He does country as traditional as it can get, and his voice works well with the material. All this and more makes for a great release from Mr. Allan. Check this one out for sure!"
Strong set

"This was Gary Allan's follow up to the critically acclaimed album SMOKE RINGS IN THE DARK. ALRIGHT GUY was a pretty successful album, though it remains to be seen why he is still not a leading male in country music. Allan represents what real country music is. He doesn't fluff it up with over emotion or anything else - just real country full of drinking, cheating, and more. This set showcases his vocals, even better than on past albums. The material is pretty bawdy, but good. "Man To Man" became a #1 hit, and the album also churned out hit singles like "The One", and "Man of Me". The title track was going to be a single, but was shelved when his new album was nearing completion. It would have been interesting to see country radio's reaction to the song, which includes pot smoking, drinking, unlawful behavior, and other taboos. "The Devil's Candy" is one of my favorites, it has single potential and would have been a hit I bet. He shows his softer side on ballads like "The One", "Adobe Walls", and "What I'd Say". The album closer "What Would Willie Do" is a great song to end the album with. Overall, a strong collection of songs."
