Product Description


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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to know this... Oct. 4 2001
By LizO
Format:Audio CD
...I am not a HUGE country fan, I listen to a lot of different music but Alan Jackson has always been a favorite of mine since I left a small city that plays mostly country to a larger city that plays everything. I remembered those roots that grew beneath my feet and some country music was a part of my soul then, his music became a part of that.
Well, I have most all of Alan Jackson's CDs and this one is right up there with all the others I have. "Life Or Love" really struck a cord with me. Never fear he still has whimsy (in my eyes) in "Meat and Potato Man" and a little in "[...] but over all it's a well put together CD with some great tracks that you will want to listen to over and over again.
As a non-country listener (I keep the station tuned to classic rock in my car) this is a must have for ALL music lovers. It doesn't matter if you like country or not. Alan has a way with his music that few have, it reaches to all. He was in part the singer that turned me to enjoy the country music arena.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good! Aug. 17 2001
By "hkptr"
Format:Audio CD
I love all songs on this album. Songs like "When Somebody Loves you", "I Still Love You" and "Maybe I Should Stay Here" touch my heart, especially "I Still Love You". Mid-tempo songs "Meat and Potato Man" (It's Alan), "The Thrill is Back", "Where I Come From", "Life Or Love", "A Love Like That" and "It's Alright To Be A Redneck" are really funny compositions. "WWW.Memory" and "Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Up-tempo Love Song" are two very speical songs by Alan, maybe indicating a brand-new Alan in the future. It's so great that Alan keeps on writing songs of different styles while retaining his country roots! Alan's voice and song-writing are getting better and better. And I truly hope Alan would keep up his efforts to further enhance his artistry. He is a true artist. Listening his new songs is just like having a happy journey in the countryside. It's Alan's best album since 1994's "Who I Am". Very Good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Jackson still rules in Country Music! Feb. 2 2001
By Judy
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Alan Jackson fan still I was old enough to walk, he is the greatest and his new album proves that he still rules. "When Somebody Loves You", represents what country is all about. With songs such as Meat and Potato Man, and It's Alright To Be A Redneck, Alan Jackson describes country roots. With his songs "When Somebody Loves You", "[...] " I still Love you", and " A Love Like That", Alan expresses his awesome voice to reach the listeners hearts. And of course he gave us fans some up beat songs with "Three Minute Postive Not Too Country Up-Tempo Love Song" and "The Thrill Is Back". The fact that he wrote five of the eleven songs on the CD shows that his talent has no limit. Alan has always dominated country music, he gives the music industry what is needs to keep country music alive. Alan truly is the sexiest and most talented artists, and this CD proves it once again just like in the past. Get this CD if you dont have it already you wont regret it, I have it and it is awesome, Let Alan sing you to sleep with is sexy, unique voice. He is like no other, Noone could ever take his place.
