Review: For country music fans, very few wouldnt have heard of Alan Jackson. The man have released many hit albums during the 90s, including this one, which is widely regarded as his best album out of them all thanks to its catchy tunes. On the surface, it isnt a terrible album. Some song titles might seem a bit silly or uninspiring, but the actual music is decent. It has everything a generic country record needs. There is very little variety in the songs but that also makes it a more consistent album without too many musical surprises.
The album is relatively short, at a length of around 30 minutes, but there is also no filler songs which makes it a very good album to listen to repeatedly. It doesnt get boring. Many albums by ALan jackson are similar in musical direction to this one. Overall, there is a good amount of catchy tunes on this record but its too early to say it is a landmark album when it comes to country music. Alan jackson does things well, on the other hand, and any average country fan would find this album pleasing enough to be worth listening to.
