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

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.
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?
