On her 3rd CD Alison Krauss does not break stride. "I've Got That Old Feeling" is chock-a-block FULL of the beautiful ballads that have made her famous with her angelically emotive voice, but it is also perhaps the best showcase for her ability to perform more up-tempo pieces, such as "Dark Skies" and "Will You Be Leaving?" The supporting cast here performs perfectly.
How many albums do you have that have perhaps a few good songs on it, but just as many songs that are just filler - instantly forgettable and barely listenable? This is a CD with NO filler. Every cut is a "keeper" and I could just listen to the whole thing back to back over and over again.
Alison Krauss is a national treasure, and this recording is one reason why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant early album full of great songs December 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Alison Krauss has done much to popularise bluegrass in recent years. Her early recordings were pure bluegrass - this (from 1990) might just be the best album of that phase of her career, although they are all brilliant and it's hard to choose a particular favorite. Her more recent albums have included other influences but I enjoy those too, in a different way.
There are no really famous songs on this album, but the quality of all the songs is high. Sidney Cox (of the Cox family, a noted bluegrass group with which Alison recorded a gospel album) wrote four songs including the title track (a bright, upbeat song) and Tonight I'll be lonely too (an outstanding ballad). Other favorites of mine include Steel rails (a brilliant train song), Endless highway, Will you be leaving and One good reason, but there are so many great songs here and it may be that your favorite is one I haven't mentioned. The overall feel of the album is bright and upbeat.
If you are unfamiliar with Alison's early music, I recommend that you buy Now that I've found you - A collection, which I've already reviewed. That includes one track from each of her early albums, plus tracks not available on any of her other albums so far. If you have that collection and you are looking for more of Alison's early music, you will enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever a Classic February 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alison Krauss is by far my favorite artist. Getting this CD has been a treat. She brings such flavor to bluegrass like no other artist. Not only is her voice that brings spirit, but her violin playing has emotions and feeling. Alison and Union Station's mixtures of songs such as ballads and up beat toe tapping Blue grass shows the range of talent this lady and group has. I hope they continue to produce this special music. I just have one more CD to buy and I have all her CD...which are getting quite worn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the early years July 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you just stumbled across this album and gave it a listen, you might be forgiven for thinking that it's a greatest hits CD. At this point, AK already had a couple of albums under her belt, and it shows. The music is straight bluegrass and country, you won't find any of the later pop infusions (which is fine music itself!), and the song selection is first rate. The instrumentalists are in fine form, and her voice still has most of that thin,reedy quality that you associate with bluegrass. But if you listen, it's just beginning to warm up some and lose that young-girl quality ...

So if you're already an AKUS fan, you can scoop this one up and enjoy every lick! And if not, this is as good a place as any to test the waters.

5.0 out of 5 stars My sentimental favorite AK+US CD November 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My father-in-law listened to this CD while he was dying. "Steel Rails" will always be my favorite. As with the other AK+US CDs:
This is the real thing folks - real singers and real musicians making real music. Blow off Shania and Faith and BUY THIS AND EVERY OTHER Alison Krauss + Union Station CD AVAILABLE!!!...

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Years August 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
A lot of folks who have found Alison Krauss in the last couple of years should take a listen to this album. It's amazing how strong her voice was at such a young age.
This is the album that introduced me to bluegrass. I haven't left since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful April 10, 2001
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
I listen to a wide variety of music, and I think that Alison Krauss has the most beautiful voice in all of today's music. The pop acts of today can't compare. "I've Got That Old Feeling" has 12 exceptional songs from bluegrass to country including the title song, "It's Over", and "Wish I Still Had You". Not only can Krauss sing, she plays the violin to perfection. If you haven't listened to Alison Krauss yet, you are in for a treat!

Don't get me wrong here, Alison is a very good musician and singer, but I honestly feel her music has gone way too mainstream and this is why the review has the title that it does. Read more

Great CD - I listen to it over and over. Less sophisticated than her newer works and with more of a bluegrass flavor. It's fun to hear how she has matured over the years. Read more
