Product Description

Alan Jackson ~ When Somebody Loves You


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

When Somebody Loves You is only the second Alan Jackson album I've purchased(its predecessor, Under The Influence, is the other). However, after listening to this record, I can see why Alan gets a lot of praise for his music. He doesn't try to make his music "pop" in order to sell more records, but instead has remained true to his country roots. As Alan usually does, he has plenty of good slow songs on this one. The best ballads here are the title track "When Somebody Loves You", "Life Or Love", "A Love Like That", "Maybe I Should Stay Here" and Alan's current hit "[...] contemporary twist on the lost-love song that capitalizes on our current obsession with getting on the Web). Alan also has some upbeat, funny songs on this record--"Meat And Potato Man", "It's Alright To Be A Redneck", and "Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Up-Tempo Love Song", the record's concluding tune. This is a fine record from one of country music's best performers. In my opinion, when the awards shows come up, When Somebody Loves You should get nominated for best country album. It's certainly worthy of that award.

I just finished listening to the latest Jackson album. It's his 10th stdio album and my 10th Alan Jackson album as well. I love this guy. I was at a concert a couple of weeks ago and I loved all his old hits, Chattahoochie, Living on Love (my favorite), and so on.
Now, the new one, I Don't know what to say. I liked two songs right from the start, the one with the long title "Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Uptempo Love Song" and of course "[...] Now what about the rest?
My opinion is that the quality of the songs decreased over the last decade, but it's still Alan Jackson Country, that I don't care, it doesn't bother me at all. I love all his songs, any of them without exceptions, and I will continue to love all of the songs, including this album. I think you might need to get "used" to them, because a couple are kinda "rocky". What I was missing are the ballads a la "Wanted" or "Midnight in Montgomery" or "The Blues Man" - as I said: the old stuff (3 years ago and earlier) is a little bitty better. Maybe because I like ballad songs so much. But, as always, I L.O.V.E. all the songs on this album and I really recommend it. What did you think would an Alan Jackson album be if not "recommendable"?! - a pure understatement. He's the king of country.
I rushed to the store this morning to be one of the first to get a piece. And as expected it's Alan Jackson again. He will never give up to the Pop genre, never!
Go get this. You will love it, trust me.

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.

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.
