Product Description

Amazon.ca

Because his singing is solid but unremarkable, Alan Jackson tends to be only as good as his song selection. So on several tracks here--his own composition "Buicks To The Moon," for example, or Tom T. Hall's slighter-than-it-fancies-itself "Little Bitty"--he isn't exactly sunk by clunky metaphors and cliched arrangements, but he can't rise above them either. However, on the title track here, and on the searing, twangy power ballad "Between The Devil And Me," he's as good as he's ever been. Which is very good indeed. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars One of many great albums from Alan Dec 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
There were four singles released from this album. The title track is about how all life's pleasures (including his partner) are ruining him and he's going to have to give them up. Little bitty was written by Tom T Hall and would surely have been a major hit for him had he written it in the seventies. However, he wrote it long after most people had lost interest in his music, so Tom was grateful to Alan for having a number one country hit with it and rekindling interest in his own music. Who's cheating who was originally a number one country hit for the brilliant but largely forgotten pop-country singer Charly McClain. Alan adapted it to his own style and had a top ten country hit with it. The fourth single was There goes, a song about conflicting emotions.
Buicks to the moon is one of those songs pledging love to eternity. This song and all four singles have since been released on Greatest hits 2, so if you've bought that, you may wonder why you should buy this. The reason, of course, is the other five songs. Between the devil and me is a great song about temptation. A house with no curtains is a very sad song, in which Alan describes a heartache that is there for all to see. Walk on the rocks, another sad song, is a cautionary tale about a long-term prisoner meeting his son after his release. Must've had a ball is about a hangover so it's not quite as cheerful as the title suggests, although Alan gives the impression of contentment. The final song, It's time you learned about goodbye, is a great song about a man finally not being able to take any more
If you are a fan of country music, you can't really go wrong buying any Alan Jackson album, as they are all great. While this is by no means his strongest, it is still much better than most other country singers could ever hope to record. It is the sheer consistency of his music that causes him to remain one of the hottest country singers around.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Alan's best July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
In any artist's career, there comes a point where they can record almost anything and have a hit. "Little Bitty" is that point for Alan Jackson. Anyone that can have hit records with nursery rhymes deserves respect. Doubly so if, like Jackson, they can take a positively inane song and make it sound good!
So the weakest part of the album starts at 5 stars - quite honestly, where do you go from there? If you don't have this album, buy it, now.
On a personal note (being a part-time musician), my favourite moment on the album is the wonderfully over-the-top steel guitar solo in the closing track "It's Time You Learned About Goodbye". But then Paul Franklin (steel guitarist) has achieved deity-like status amongst those in the know. How can you go wrong?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is everything I love! Feb. 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
You can never knock traditional country music,and this album is yet another in a long-line to prove that statement. Alan Jackson has a powerful,strong voice and expresses it towards us in an emotional and touching way. The songs are wonderful-if you dwell on lyrics or if you enjoy singing along. There's catchy songs like 'Little Bitty' and 'There Goes',emotional songs-'Between the Devil and Me','Walk on Rocks'and an incredibly moving love song entitled 'Buicks to the Moon'. Pick up this album,learn an honest lesson in life and think over what you've learnt-country music is everything

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best CD from Alan! Dec 12 1999
By Mark
Format:Audio CD
What can I say. Every song is top notch. The Only song I usually skip over is "Little Bitty" but that song hit #1 so its just a personal preference. "Walk On The Rocks" and "Buicks To The Moon" are my favorites on this set. The closing song "It's Time You Learned About Goodbye" is also a classic written by Alan. That song was originally meant for Faith Hill but good thing he kept it for himself as it is the the best closing song on any of his albums. But I love them all from start to finish!

5.0 out of 5 stars As usual Alan Jackson has done it again. Aug. 23 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I find that a lot of his songs hold special meaning for me. Little Bitty, my daughter growing up and having her own children. Everything I Love, my brother-in-law. I love songs that give me some meaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another beautiful album June 17 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Everything I love" is again what I like most about country music: an album full of strong songs with that good mixture of poetic lyrics, a good melody and the right rhythm. I just loved the CD.
