Garth Brooks' self-titled debut album is a strong one. Garth's debut single, the rodeo song "Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old", was my favorite song by Garth until "The Dance" superseded it. "The Dance", which on the surface sounds like a relationship song but is actually a celebration of life, was written by Garth's friend Tony Arata, who would go on to write some other great songs which Garth recorded. The love ballad "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and the honky-tonk song "Not Counting You" were the other hit songs from "Garth Brooks". Other highlights are "Everytime That It Rains", "Nobody Gets Off In This Town", and Garth's remake of the classic Charley Pride song "I Know One". Garth went on to make quite a few great albums, but his debut album, in my opinion, is a classic.

This was Garth's first CD, and an outstanding debut for a man who would become one of music's most popular singer/songwriters.
He was 27 at the time, but looks like a kid on the cover photo, and he has described this CD as "innocent", which in some ways it is; there is a freshness to the music, and a sweetness in the lyrics.
The songs:
"Much Too Young" (Taylor/Brooks) was Garth's first hit single, and is about a rodeo cowboy, "the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold", and is one of the terrific "story" songs on this CD.
"Not Counting You", is one of the few up-tempo songs, and is the only one penned by Garth alone. The words are a clever example of writing in negatives: "There's no exception to the rule / I've never been nobody's fool / I've never lost at love not counting you". It was the second of the singles from this CD, and one of my favorite tracks.
Two others that were singles have become signature songs for Garth: "If Tomorrow Never Comes" (Blazy/Brooks), a beautiful, meaningful ballad, and "The Dance" (Tony Arata), another lovely ballad with Bobby Wood on piano shining in a truly wonderful musical arrangement.
"Everytime That it Rains" (Stefl/England/Brooks) "And through the dance we both stumbled and with the buttons we fumbled", and "Cowboy Bill" (Bastian/Berghoff) are two more "story" songs that draw one in with their well-told tales, and Garth's great interpretations.
This is intelligent, finely crafted, high-quality country music, and Garth's smooth and rich vocals, and the superb musicianship of his band makes this one of the most auspicious "firsts" I've ever heard, and an essential CD in my collection. Total time 33'30.

Garth Brooks' self-titled 1989 debut is one of, if not the best release from the multi-million selling country superstar. None of the ten tracks can be mistaken for anything but country. If his pop-crossover experiment "Chris Gaines" made you sick and longing for the country Garth, just listen to this album and remember why country fans fell in love with him and his music. You probably already know the hit singles "If Tomorrow Never Comes," "The Dance" and "Much too young (to fell this damn old)," and the album's other seven songs live up to the same standards these do, especially "Not Counting You," "Alabama Clay," and "Every time that it Rains," songs that, if released as singles, would undoubetly gone straight to no. 1. If you had to choose one of Garth's releases to own, this would be the one.

As the editorial suggests, this is Garth Brooks' best album. If you only own one, own this one.... it's beautiful, beginning to end... especially the end... The Dance. If you don't own it, then your CD library is pretty annoying.

It's difficult to assess this album on its own merits given the enormity of Garth Brooks' career and the 100 million albums he has now sold. This CD introduced a talented and exciting new artist to country music, and although some critics have highlighted this CD as the beginning of the end of traditional country, that simply isn't true - and I'm a Merle Haggard fan. Brooks has gone on to record a variety of music under the country banner, but he is a country artist (the disastrous Chris Gaines project aside) who has successfully combined a range of musical styles to form his brand of country music. All innovators in musical history have done the same thing, but few have encountered the criticism that Brooks has met. Conversely, none have enjoyed his number of album sales! With his self-titled debut album, Brooks stuck to a mainly traditional feel, including the Jim Reeves and Charley Pride hit I Know One, Cowboy Bill and Nobody Gets Off At This Town. There were early indications of the detours into rock ballads that he would return to regularly on future albums: Everytime That It Rains is a clear predecessor to The Thunder Rolls. Also included is the classic rodeo song (another subject he would cover many times), Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old. The best two songs are among the highlights of his entire career: If Tomorrow Never Comes and The Dance are outstanding songs, and if they aren't exactly what Hank Williams would have regarded as country, that doesn't mean they're any less worthy. I had Merle Haggard's Roots Volume 1 as my album of the year for 2001; I would name this album as my best for 1989 and happily play it in the car next to Dale Watson, Alan Jackson, Waylon Jennings and George Jones.
