Product Description

Amazon.ca

Graced with one of 2001's most distinct voices, Adkins begins by sinking his leathery growl into the title number--a rap track, but one possessing enough wit to avoid falling into gimmickry. From there, the curve is upward. The hit "I'm Tryin'," a simple inspirational message wrapped in a complex arrangement, possesses strength and integrity too rarely seen in hit singles. Adkins's real-life blue-collar past imbues "Thankful Man" with a believability missing when such songs wind up in the hands of singers from middle-class college backgrounds. While keeping the otherwise mundane "Scream" and "Once a Fool Ago" above water, he rises above the norm with "I'm Goin' Back." This take on the timeless country-boy-hates-the-big-city scenario succeeds on every level, even if the word "discern" seems a bit out of place. The excruciating anguish of "Help Me Understand" and the self-explanatory "Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow" exemplify power ballads done right. The message? One can make a record that reconciles the normally disparate virtues of commerciality and honesty. --Rich Kienzle

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT! BUY THIS CD!! Jan. 4 2004
By Peter
Format:Audio CD
This is the cd that introduced me to the wonder of Trace Adkins. I'd never heard him until i heard the songs "Tryin'" and "Help Me Understand" on the country radio station. That song is a power ballad that just rips my heart out every time i hear it. There is such pure honesty and conviction in his voice when he sings this song. I don't know how anyone can't be moved by this song. "Tryin'" is another amazing power ballad that is an inspirational song about not giving up when life constantly throws obstacles at you. It's also very moving in the way Trace delivers it. The opening track "Chrome" is amazing! He starts the song with a sexy growl and sings about cars and his big black Mack truck. He talks about the truck in a very sexy way, and about a woman who loves trucks and cars. It is very much a novelty song for Trace, as it's probably the closest thing to "country-rap" from Trace that you'll hear, but Trace pulls off the song with confidence and it's a fun song. There is not ONE bad track on the cd. Every single track is amazing and great! The cd is loaded with hit singles, many that didn't get released but should have. What i love most about Trace Adkins is that his voice doesn't sound like any male out there in country at all. He's a one-of-a-kind original with his amazing rich baritone voice. This guy sings pure country from his heart and soul. This cd sold me on Trace Adkins and i bought many of his earlier cds too, and they are all great! This guy was inducted into the country music hall of fame and i'm really happy about that. You can tell from seeing him in interviews and listening to the way he sings that here is NOTHING phoney or fake about Trace Adkins! The guy is a good person and has a good heart, which shines in his music. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Not enough Aug. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm a great fan and loved the CD. I just have one complaint. Not enough of the great songs were made into singles and videos. Many didn't hear the best songs from this album. Chrome was not my favorite song on the album. The best song was the last song not the first.......Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow was by far the best and would have been a hit as a video or single.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trace Adkins: another cliche? June 19 2003
By Rebecca
Format:Audio CD
The biggest challenge of male country music singers today is BEING UNIQUE. After hearing so many singles and buying so many albums, one singer seems to melt into the next, with nothing to differentiate them. So the question is: does Trace have what it takes to separate himself from the herd? This is not so easy to answer. His barritone voice, like Eddie Montgomery's from Montgomery Gentry, is sexy and unique- he should use it more! Every now and then a low note is hit but besides that, he stays in a normal range. As per the songs, the more I listen to the cd, the better they are. Yes, some songs in the middle of the cd seem to drag and melt into each other, but for the most part, Trace Adkins provides some unique material, such as "I'm Goin' Back"- I've never heard anything like it! So has he separated himself from the pack? He's on the right track, but he definitely has room for improvement.

1.0 out of 5 stars SHOULD BE RE-TITLED AS: RUST! March 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I enjoy good music of any kind, but this "Tracey-good-ol'-boy" cd lacks polish and lustre. Hammy lyrics, and tired, worn out grooves and guitar riffs coupled with basic sound production, equals one boring colection of stiff songs.
Adkins needs to run alongside a few of the veteran singer-songwriters out there and brush up on his style. A couple more years on the road will give him more experience.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Chrome is Heaven! Feb. 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Chrome was my first Trace Adkins CD I purchased and I had to run back to the store to get his other CD's. If you love country music, you'll LOVE Chrome. Trace can get ya laughing, crying, and tapping your toes.
It's definitely my favorite CD and I'm sure it will soon be yours.
Shiny, nice, polished.....CHROME!

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting to know Trace Adkins Oct. 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
My son loves the song "Help me understand". I found the cd CHROME at our local cd store in the used cd section so I bought it.(The best 9 dollars I have ever spent).I played it when I got home and played it.It took me about 2 weeks to get past the first four songs.(CHROME, HELP ME UNDERSTAND, ONCE UPON A FOOL AGO, I'M TRYIN'.) There great and I would buy the cd with only these songs on it. Then I moved on to 5-12. THANKFUL MAN is a song that I really enjoy. It has a great upbeat tempo. I'M PAYIN FOR IT NOW,SCREAM,I'M GOIN BACK are all hit the replay button. Then I finally made it to the last song LOVE ME LIKE THERE'S NO TOMMORROW. This song was a total shock. The previous 11 were sung with Trace's deep baritone voice.LOVE ME was sung so beautifully you feel it in your heart. This song is my No.1 "hit the replay song". Trace is excellent and one of my new FAVORITES. I also bought "BIG TIME" but, I haven't got past "CHROME" yet!
