To Tell You the Truth, I lied...this album deserves 6 stars

"I first heard Joe's single "The Impossible" and since it hadn't come out on CD yet I had to at least get my hands on his older work. Over all his debut and self titled ablum (which now has been renamed Six of One, Half Dozen of the Other) has a uniquely different sound then "Man with a Memory." Joe's voice was still in its developemental stage, but even then held its clear strong sound. Not quite as well rounded as his newer work, Six of One... does beat "Man with a Memory" in its solid acid country base. If your at all a fan of Nichol's, Six of One...is a good place to start in understanding his roots. Check it out, you won't be disappointed...then go check out "Man with a Memory." It just keeps getting better!"
Good songs, bad marketing, and not the best of Joe Nichols

"Every artist has to start somewhere but it's too bad Joe had to start here. This Cd was obviously poorly marketed since I didn't even know it exsisted until a few days ago. After ordering my copy, I have listened to it many times and while there is potential here, it is nowhere near "Man with a Memory" or "Revelation". Joe seems to have vocal problems on some of the songs and seems to mimick other artists style such as Garth Brooks. While this is expected, it does take away from the quality of the album.
On the bright side, there are a lot of songs that any country fan can enjoy and they all seem to fit Joe perfectly. "Old Cheyenne", "Leave the Past Behind", "In Spite of Myself" and "To Tell you the Truth,I lied are superior songs that match the superiority of Joe's love songs on his newer albums. If the vocals were stronger, these songs would easily give this album five out of five.
Like any album, there are plenty of filler tracks here such as, "Independent Girl", and "Wal-Mart Parking Lot" Suprisingly, Six of One, Half Dozen of the other belongs in the filler category as well. I still can't see what Joe is talking about in this song. For an ubeat part of the album, he could've chosen a better song.
Though the album was poorly marketed, it does have some good love songs that country fans should enjoy. However, if a fan expects the Joe of today, then wait for his next release because you won't find it here.
