I am a huge Jason Aldean fan and I actually had all of his CDs accept this one. It is a great CD to add to my collection. I can see where he has improved in some ways, but there are songs on here that grab me just like his other CDs. If you are a Jason fan, and have not seen him in concert yet, then you HAVE to! I have been to my share of concerts in the last couple years, but I had the most fun at his. He ROCKS it out! Great CD for a great singer!

I'm not even much of a country fan and I love this CD! Jason has a really unique voice that is particularly great for slow songs. Heck, I don't even like a couple of songs, but like listening to his voice. Hicktown, Why and Amarillo Sky all had good radio play, but there are some lesser songs on here that are just wonderful.

Country meets rock thanks to a talented singer

"There are two things that help Jason Aldean stand out from his contemporary country/rock peers: the first is that he manages to put heart and soul into his voice, without coming off like a polished singer. The second is that he doesn't write his own stuff (save four songs he co-wrote). Most of this album was written by songwriters who have gained minor fame recently due to their edgy, alternative styles and materials: John Rich, Vicky McGehee, Rodney Clawson, David Lee Murphy, Kim Tribble, and Bobby Pinson (hell, even Chad Brock has a co-writing credit; nice to see some material from him).
Aldean takes these tunes and makes them his own. True, his rendition of "Asphalt Cowboy" falls short of Blake Shelton's recording on THE DREAMER, but then, Shelton is more of a vocalist than Aldean is. Aldean's voice is down-home and likeable; his attitude is present throughout, yet never fully expressed (thanks to some wonderful production by Michael Knox). He takes tunes such as "I Believe In Ghosts" and "Amarillo Sky" and makes them fascinating gems; few country boys will have trouble relating to "She Loved Me" and "Hicktown." "I'm Just a Man" is undeniably catchy; even the corny "You're the Love I Wanna Be In" comes off fresh and invigorating, thanks to Aldean's heartfelt performance.
With this album, Jason Aldean establishes himself as a formidible new force on the Nashville scene. He won't go kicking down doors...yet. But he will turn some heads, and catch radio's attention. He has the heart, the material, and the raw talent to make it his own way. We're gonna be hearing more from him on down the road, I guarantee it."

"This album is outstanding. After being in Nashville for years, Aldean's finances were getting bad and he was about to move back home in Georgia. That was gonna be the case, until a producer met him in a club and was able to convince Jason that with enough work, they could get a record deal. Jason agreed, but promised to move back home in 6 months if a deal wasn't done. Luckily Broken Bow Records signed this guy. This CD is awesome. Every track is great and he has a strong voice. From fun songs like "Hicktown", to love songs like "Why", a lot of emotions are expressed in this album. This is a must for any country fan. You won't be disappointed."
