Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Graced with one of 2001's most distinct voices, Adkins begins by sinking his leathery growl into the title number--a rap track, but one possessing enough wit to avoid falling into gimmickry. From there, the curve is upward. The hit "I'm Tryin'," a simple inspirational message wrapped in a complex arrangement, possesses strength and integrity too rarely seen in hit singles. Adkins's real-life blue-collar past imbues "Thankful Man" with a believability missing when such songs wind up in the hands of singers from middle-class college backgrounds. While keeping the otherwise mundane "Scream" and "Once a Fool Ago" above water, he rises above the norm with "I'm Goin' Back." This take on the timeless country-boy-hates-the-big-city scenario succeeds on every level, even if the word "discern" seems a bit out of place. The excruciating anguish of "Help Me Understand" and the self-explanatory "Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow" exemplify power ballads done right. The message? One can make a record that reconciles the normally disparate virtues of commerciality and honesty. --Rich Kienzle

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! October 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD could not get any better. I remember when his More....CD came out, that was the first time I heard of him. Now, he is probably one of my favorite singers of all time! What an incredible voice! If you like Toby Keith or Ray Benson from Asleep At The Wheel, you will definitely like Trace. The power behind his voice, almost gives you chills down your spine. With the song "I'm Trying", this CD could not get any better. The message behind that song is so important to daily life. On another song, he has an little Irish influence in it as well. He may do ballads, but with his voice, he makes them power ballads. This CD is one you can keep in your car, and be cruising to. Great work Trace!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best voice in country has the best album! November 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Trace Adkins has been singing for a few years now, but people haven't necessarily given him the recognition he deserves. Maybe this CD will change their minds. CHROME is loaded with hits, and it will keep you dancin' the night away!
The opening track is also the title track, telling the story of a girl who loves semis and cars and...Well, "Chrome"! The next song--"Help Me Understand"--is a typical breakup song, but with Adkins loaning it his voice, it's a masterpiece. "Once Upon A Fool Ago" is basically an uptempo version of "Understand," with the same ups and downs. "I'm Tryin'" is the ballad of a man struggling through life, never giving up. It's the anthem our country needs during these tryin times. It is followed by a similar-themed--and just as good--"Thankful Man." Adkins co-wrote the following track, "I'm Payin' For It Now", and takes the breakup song and gives it a somewhat sarcastic edge. "And There Was You" is maybe the album's lowpoint, but even it has it's ups. "Come Home" is again a song about love gone wrong, this time with the singer pleading his case. On track nine, "Scream", Adkins gives what may be his best work; that is, taking a song that could be considered pop, adding a country feel, and topping it off with his baritone voice. "I'm Goin' Back" is a humorous look at why the country is better than the city. "Give Me You" is off-kilter from most of the album--a song about the good side of love. The CD finishes off with "Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow", a powerful ballad that will linger in your head for days afterward.
CHROME is Trace Adkins's best work yet. I know you'll like it; if, however, you don't, you might want to get your ears examined--because something's very wrong! Buy this CD, and if your ears are okay, you'll enjoy it always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous!!!!! October 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best CD I've heard in quite awhile! There are so many styles of songs and Trace has no problem with any of them. His deep, pure voice can handle anything from rap to romance. When I'm not listening to the CD, I find myself humming the tunes and certain ones just stay in my head. My 13 yr. old loves "Chrome", "I'm Goin' Back" reminds me of my little sister who moved off to the big city,"Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow" would be fantastic in the soundtrack of a movie....I can't pick a favorite!!!! They all should be released as singles!

5.0 out of 5 stars Next Big Country Star September 19, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
All Trace needs is a break and he could be the next big country star. Trace has an excellent and distinctive voice that is a joy to listen to.
I brought this CD, Chrome because of his ballet "Help Me Understand". This song should have been a top 5 hit. In my opinion there is even a better ballet on this CD which is "Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow", which I hope is released as a single.
Trace has a couple of up beat and fun songs, the title track "Chrome, and "I'm Goin Back".
The rest of the CD is fill with good songs that are just not filler material like you would find on other CDs. Some of the other songs that I enjoyed on this CD are, "Once Upon a Fool Ago, I'm Trying, "Thankful Man", "I'm Paying for it Now".
This was the first CD of Trace's that I have brought and since I have purchased the rest of his previous 3 CDs.
I would definitely recommend buying this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Country CD March 26, 2002
By K. Roth
Format:Audio CD
This CD has a mix of country ballads and faster, upbeat songs. Trace Adkins voice is very country. His music on this CD however, sways somewhat away from that traditional sound. The beginning song "Chrome" is unlike anything he has every done is very mechanical with a lot of electric guitar. His voice pulls it back to the country realm though. Song #2 is a beautiful ballad about him losing his lifetime love and how is he ever going to get over it. "I'm Trying" is of course, the first single released from the album. "Thankful Man" is a retake on his blue collar upbringing and traditional Adkins type verses. "I'm Going Back" is about the country boy-living in the city-and hating it song. "Love Me Like There's No..." is another ballad and very pretty. (I like #2 better.)
It is worth buying, especially if you are a fan. Some of the music is just a further reach for him as compared to his previous albums. I would categorize him with Toby Keith...that type of music...except that Trace has a much deeeeeeeeeper voice. But their words, melodies, and goofy songs are similar.
