Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

George Strait consistently modernizes country music while keeping it rooted in tradition. Blue Clear Sky is one of Strait's best, proving again that the man knows a great melody when he hears one. The title track, for instance, sports a contemporary pop-influenced melody, but surrounded by pedal steel, it remains a country song, and a good one. The album's full of good country songs, in fact, especially the old-school honky-tonk of "King of the Hill," the power ballad "Carried Away," the almost unbearably pathetic "I Can Still Make Cheyenne," and "Need I Say More," where Strait swings like a hybrid of Tommy Duncan and Frank Sinatra. --David Cantwell

In country music, an artist can have hits out the wazoo. Why, George Jones has had about 140 country top 40 hits, no surprise for one of the greatest vocalists country music has ever had. Even in the way of #1 hits, an artist can outdo anything the Beatles ever accomplished (Conway Twitty & Ronnie Milsap's run of #1s is around 40 or so).

George Strait is another one of those consistently successful country singers who even now shows no signs of coming off his run. By 1995, he had had so many hits, that instead of just an ordinary greatest-hits album, a box set STRAIT OUT OF THE BOX was created to hold them all. Even the new song "Check Yes Or No" was another #1 added to that never-ending list. Showing no signs of resting on his duff, George followed the box set & began a new stage of his career with 1996's BLUE CLEAR SKY.

Before this, Western swing had been George's stock in trade, with just as many rave-ups as ballads. But I guess with George now well into his 40s, he maybe thought the time had come to settle down a bit. That explains why BLUE CLEAR SKY is a little heavy on ballads, but it shows George can easily pull off such a change in mood with ease.

"Rockin' In The Arms Of Your Memory", "I Can Still Make Cheyenne" & "She Knows When You're On My Mind" are great love songs that also tell an actual story in the usual country music tradition. These songs prove that while a majority of George's albums may seem to sound alike as a whole, he still knows quality when he hears it. Other great ballads include "Carried Away", "King Of The Mountain" & "I'd Just As Soon Go". The closing "Need I Say More" is truly an eye-opener with a more jazz-based tune & a song that truly is romantic.

George Strait hit his peak with Blue Clear Sky. The hit title song, "Blue Clear Sky", about finding true love when you least expect it, is an enjoyable, upbeat song. The ballad "Carried Away", the rodeo song "I Can Still Make Cheyenne", and the waltz "King Of The Mountain" were also huge hits off the record, and George does all of them well. The other songs here are the breakup song "I'd Just As Soon Go", the upbeat honky-tonk numbers "I Ain't Never Seen No One Like You" and "Do The Right Thing", the reflective songs "Rockin' In The Arms Of Your Memory" and "She Knows When You're On My Mind", and the romantic song "Need I Say More" which closes the album. These are all solid, powerful songs. Only one record George has made since he made this one, Always Never The Same, comes close to being as great. I think Blue Clear Sky is "clearly" a great album.

Blue Clear Sky is one of Georges best records in the 90's...Great classics like Blue Clear Sky. Carried Away, King Of the Mountain, Still Make, make your feet stopping and you mouth a singing. Great country artist, albam, and songs...Worth the bucks to get...Trust Me

Another great cd from the world's greatest Country singer! BLUE CLEAR SKY features the title track, "Carried Away" and one of the very few slow songs that I really like "I Can Still Make Cheyenne". Buy this cd. Become a fan!

While not what I consider the VERY best George Strait CD, it does have some mighty good cuts like the title cut, King of the Mountain and I just LOVE I Ain't Never Seen No One Like You. Keep up the great work, George!

Every cut is a pure pleasure, but the one real standout is the hard core country knock out "King Of The Mountain"!!! Man can this guy sing or what??!!!

Don Williams recorded a song called "Just to Be Your Man" for the Smokey and the Bandit II soundtrack. It's a mellow to mid-range song just like Josh's, but not the same song.
