Product Description

Amazon.ca

In the decade since his debut, Alan Jackson has matured as both singer and songwriter while his resolute traditionalism remains unchanged. As usual, his original numbers account for the best moments, including the hit "www.memory" and heartland anthem "Where I Come From," both outclassing the cartoonish non-original "It's Alright to Be a Redneck," yet another variation on Jeff Foxworthy's tired comedic hook. Jackson's masterful title track reiterates his genius with a ballad, as does his passionate interpretation of Robert Lee Castleman's loungy "Maybe I Should Stay Here." Don't dare assume he'd tone down the acerbic commentaries he began on "Gone Country" and continued on "Murder on Music Row." As roaring guitars battle traditional steel guitar, "Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Uptempo Love Song" allows Jackson to plunge his lyrical daggers into country radio consultants, whose soulless, analytical number-crunching determines who does--and doesn't--get airplay. Jackson's determination to confront Nashville's marketing, fashion, and gimmickry obsessions reaffirm his own blue-collar grit. --Rich Kienzle

5.0 out of 5 stars always great, always pure country May 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson is one of the few best-selling artists who throughout his long career has kept "real country music" thriving; during Nashville's ups and downs and pop crossover cycles, Jackson never left his roots, and for that we thank him.
In this platinum CD, which was his 10th recording, his wonderful baritone voice and relaxed style make all 11 tracks great listening.
Three of the five songs written by Jackson in this album were released as singles: "[...] "When Somebody Loves You", and the terrific "Where I Come From", which peaked at # 1 on the Billboard charts.
Other favorites include the opening "Meat and Potatoes Man", which is funny and tailor-made for Jackson's humor, the romantic, lilting "Maybe We Should Stay Here", and Jackson's "Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Up-tempo Love Song", which is a showpiece for his fabulous band (guitars: Bruce Watkins/acoustic, Paul Franklin/steel, Brent Mason/electric. Bass: Glenn Worf. Drums: Eddie Bayers. Fiddle: Stuart Duncan, Larry Franklin. Harmonica: Terry McMillan. Piano: Gary Prim, Keith Stegall).
Total playing time is an all-too-short (because time passes quickly when listening to Jackson) 34'01 minutes.

This is a great album. Some of the songs are cute like, 'Meat And Potato Man,' and 'It's Alright To Be A Redneck.' My favorite song is 'Where I Come From.' Alan Jackson is very talented and makes country excellent! I'd recommend this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is GREAT!! Jan. 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson is a true country singer. He writes his own songs and has a great voice. I love this CD. It's the first of his that I've gotten but I'm planning to get several more. The beautiful love song "When Somebody Loves You" is one of Alan's best. Plus, the songs "Where I Come From", "[...]", "Meat and Potato Man", "The Thrill is Back", and "A Love Like That" are all my favorites. The best cd's are the ones where you like almost every song. This cd definitely fits the bill. It's very hard to find an Alan Jackson song that I don't like. He is definitely one of the best in country music.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best Jan. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have always loved songs by alan jackson, even when I was a little girl. i remember riding in the car with my dad and singing along to 'Chattahoochie'every time it came on the radio. I heard a lot of the songs on this CD, When Somebody Loves you, first on the radio. I heard them so much I basically knew all the words. I am not much at keeping up with the titles of songs or even when the songs come out. so i didn't realize that all these songs i loved so much were all on the same album. i was just looking through the country CD's at the music store, and saw the When Somebody loves You CD. I looked on the back to see the songs and there they all were on the same CD. i didn't have any money and knew i wouldn't any time soon, so i asked my aunt to get it for me for christmas. when i opened it up i screamed because i was so excited to get it finally. i listened to it straight through two times as soon as i got the plastic off. i love it, and listen to it all the time. the songs are so easy to sing along to and have really good rythmn. They have those types of chourus' that just get in your head and you just randomly start singing them throughout the day. music you can sing along to and that is easy to know all the words is the best type of music. this CD is just that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Alan Jackson Fan From Rio Vista, California Nov. 27 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the music fan from Fredericksburg, Virginia. I own most if not all of Alan Jackson's albums. I couldn't believe my ears. Alan Jackson should apologize to his fans for this one. The title should have been "LIVIN' ON MY NAME." This album also provided an answer to the question of "WHO'S CHEATIN' WHO." In fact, Alan deserves a call and a visit from Roy D. Mercer. This is the worst country music album I have purchased in 35 years. Pass on this album.
