One of the finest albums of any kind to come out of the 90's
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With this album, Kathy Mattea established herself as one of the elite female, non-Nashville formula country based artists of this decade along with Patty Loveless and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Although a collection of songs by a variety of fine songwriters, "Walking Away a Winner" is a concept album in every respect of the word. It speaks ever so eloquently of the trials, tribulations, and joy of being a woman in the 90's. (I think- I'm just a man). The production is absolutely first class all the way and Kathy and the band provide truly inspiring and meaningful performances. This is on my top ten list of the decade for sure. "Grand Canyon" is one of the finest songs in recent memory. 'nuff said- let the record speak to you for itself!"
Just Wonderful

"This is one of her best ablums. Including the more upbeat songs "Walking Away A Winner" and "Clown in Your Rodeo." This also includes some of her ballads, where you can hear this singer's voice at its best. Including "Who Turned Out The Light" and "Who's Gonna Know."
One of my favorite songs on this ablum is "Nobody's Gonna Rain On Our Parade," which did not do very well good on the charts, but I feel is a lot better than many songs on the charts today. If you like country-pop I recommend this ablum. Mattea definetly sticks to her country roots, but there is also some pop included in some of these songs. These songs are not like Faith Hill's of Shania Twain's - who are good artists, but do not have a voice like Kathy's. Kathy Mattea is my favorite country singer, she has such a beautiful voice. So if you like Kathy Mattea or country in general, I recommend this ablum."

"Kathy Mattea is one of the best talents in country music, and its a shame she doesn't get recognition. This is a excellent album. I think of it as a sign of the times in many ways. Kathy has always spoke from her heart, and what she's singing was true to issues happening that year, the joys of being a woman, the hardships, problems everyday people face. Plus the album contains two of her best songs (in my opinion) which are "Walking Away A Winner" and "Nobody's Gonna Rain On Our Parade". All of the songs here are excellent and Kathy's voice just keeps getting better with each album, like fine wine. I reccomend this if you are tired of the cookie cutter sound of country music, and want something that goes beyond trying to be pop crossover material, but quality music."
