There is nothing quite like this duo anywhere in music. Great harmonies, good country picking, and great songs. This album definitely set the tone for their career, and there was nowhere to go but up from here. If you like the new generation of Country music, then you should have this album in your collection. These boys mix upbeat shuffles with ballads covering a large range of music on just one album. There is nothing these two can't play.
The best song on the album is the closing ballad "Still In Love with You". They lyrics are shear poetry. Another great ballad is "Neon Moon". Again, they hit the nail on the head with "Lost and Found". For as good as their ballads are, their upbeat stuff is incredible as well. "Boot Scootin' Boogie" pretty much put them on the roadmap of Country music, but songs like "Cool Drink of Water" with its upbeat humor just show this band's versatility.
Country music has a bright future with bands like Brooks and Dunn making music of this caliber. Music like this is becoming more mainstream and popular. Garth Brooks might have started that movement, but artists like B&D, Alan Jackson, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are carrying that momentum with ease.

I defy anyone to listen to 'Boot Scootin' Boogie' and not want to get up and dance. It just grabs a hold and pulls you to your feet. Just try to resist!! Most of these songs are up-tempo danceable numbers, but then there's the beautiful ballad 'Neon Moon'. A terrific debut, and just a hint of the great stuff yet to come.

It's all typical country, with the usual subject matters and the twangy steel guitars, etc. So, what makes this music so special?: Very high quality songwriting and superb singing by Ronnie Dunn. Kix Brooks isn't a bad singer (and the harmonzing with Ronnie sounds great), but he's not in Ronnie's league. Listen to Boot Scootin' Boogie on a high-quality stereo system -- this song is particularly well-produced and the vocals don't have any false echo chambering or reverb (unlike Neon Moon) -- we get to hear Ronnie Dunn's unadulterated sustain on the first "Go to boot scootin' boogie" and it's an act of pure loveliness, along with beautiful phrasing and intonation throughout. Kix Brooks can certainly write/co-write great songs, but with Ronnie available to do the singing, Kix should probably content himself with valuable harmonizing duties. We all know the great songs here: All Of Them! Lots of well-deserved #1 hits. An essential country record.

What a great way to start the career of the most successful duo in music history. There isn't a bad song on the cd. With "Brand New Man", "My Next Broken Heart", "Neon Moon", and "Boot Scootin Boogie" all topping the chart and "Lost and Found" landing at 6 on Billboard, the record was a huge success. "Cool Drink of Water", "Cheatin on the Blues", and "I'm No Good", are all fun upbeat country songs. "I've Got a Lot to Learn" and "Still in Love With You" show off Dunn's remarkable knack for singing a powerful ballad. An important start to your country collection.

This album is really something. All of the hits in this album seem to bring my spirits up. Their fast and have alot of character. No wonder they were named Duo of the year for so many years now.

Over 20 years later, this is still a great album. Yeah, it sounds *slightly* dated, but not adversely so. It's a relatively short album, clocking in at little over 30 minutes, but there isn't a trulybad song to be found. It's easy to see how Brooks & Dunn were an instant hit at the time, and how this album catapulted them to a 20 year run filled with hit songs, albums & awards. What makes this album more relevant decades later than other popular country works of the early 90's is that Brooks & Dunn found just the right mixture of pop and classic country without overdosing on either - sounds simple, but it's a balance that is remarkably difficult to maintain. Few managed to do it as well as these two.

I've heard this duo's work before, but this was the first album I bought from them, and it was fantastic. Most of the songs are upbeat and clearly just fun songs, such as 'Boot Scootin' Boogie' and 'Cool Drink of Water', whereas others, like 'Brand New Man' are still upbeat, but tell a bit more of a story. 'Neon Moon' and 'Still in Love with You' are the two slow, sad songs and they are so heartfelt you can really feel the singer's pain. There is also a good mix of songs sung by Ronnie and those sung by Kix, and it's fun to hear both vocalists, since you usually just get Ronnie for the singles. Great album, and the track listings flow very well from one song to the next.
