Editorial Reviews

Ronnie returned to RCA with this terrific 2006 comeback album, a nostalgic throwback to his '80s country-pop superstardom. The title song joins A Day in the Life of America; Local Girls; Somewhere Dry; Every Fire; Accept My Love , and more!

Customer Reviews

Ronnie Milsap...welcome back.
Blair W. McNea
Others have mentioned If It's Gonna Rain already-- it's a great Milsap ballad and My Life, also strong.
M Spencer
The title song for the CD is as good as any he has done.

This is by far the Best Milsap album since "Lost in the Fifty's". Ronnie brought back the sound that made him 40 number one hits. If you are like me- you are tired of buying new Milsap albums only to find a new mix of old Milsap #1s. This album has 11 ALL NEW Milsap songs, 4 of which could be top ten IF radio plays them: MY LIFE, WHY CAN'T I, A DAY IN THE LIFE and IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW-

Ronnie Milsap released True Believer in 1993. It was a typically outstanding Milsap album, with strong pop, blues, and gospel influences.

It was also largely ignored, however, and there have been but two original Milsap songs (on 40 #1 Hits) in the 13 years that have passed since then. Milsap has released only reworked or original hits collections, a live album, and a big band standards album (Just For a Thrill) since then.

Only dedicated Ronnie Milsap fans know any of this since Milsap has largely disappeared from the music scene, outside of concerts. Why?

This album shows that Milsap has not lost any of the talent that made him a superstar. It is of the same quality as True Believer-- only the country flavor has increased and the blues decreased. Milsap still showcases superb vocals with incredible range; although a little thinner, his voice seems to have gained more emotional resonance-- especially in the lower register.

My Life is another pop-leaning album by Milsap. It contains by my count 8 medium or up-tempo tunes and 3 ballads (My Life, If It's Gonna Rain, and Somewhere Dry). Like most Milsap albums, the vocal arrangements are stellar and there are plenty of interesting keyboard and guitar licks.

Unlike some other other reviewers, I find the song material strong (save for Local Girls), with above-average lyrics. Others have mentioned If It's Gonna Rain already-- it's a great Milsap ballad and My Life, also strong. I also especially like the driving cuts Time Keeps Slipping Away and It's All Coming Back to Me Now.

All in all, this is a great album--- if not up to the impossible standards of Milsap's 80's albums. Whether the album helps bring Milsap back into the public eye or not, I don't know. But I do know that having a new Ronnie Milsap album that sounds like he was never gone is a true blessing.

Let's hope we don't have to wait over a decade for the next one.

I really do not know what Allana Nash was listening to. The songs I like the best on the CD are the more tradtional ones and the songs that crank it up as well. I think that Local Girls is one of the two weakest songs on the CD. There are definitely some songs that should make it in the top 20 or even higher. I think it just depends on if RCA chooses the right songs to bring out. I was not disappointed at all with the CD, I have been a Milsap fan for over 30 years and think that I am a pretty tough critic of his music. In fact, I did not even purchase his last effort, which tried to take his music way outside of the coutry bounds. I do not think others who buy this CD will be disappointed either. I just hope radio decides to give his new releases a shot.

Prime Cuts: If It's Gonna Rain, Every Fire, Why Can't I

It takes more than just pure luck for a 62 year-old visually impaired veteran to still be releasing a major label offing in today's musical culture with its penchant for glamour, youth and looks. Rather, such tenacity is due to the legendary vocal prowess of this multi-Grammy award winner. Vocally, Milsap's is in tip top position: when he dips into his lower registers, there's a haunting swampy blues feel that would make B. B. King proud. And his upper registers rips with operatic ruptures that few country artists are capable of emulating. This may explain why there may be many Haggard and Jones clones, but when it comes to Milsap, he's just peerless. Unlike many fossils of yesteryear who have become contented to revel in past glories, Milsap has enlisted the best of today's songwriters (e.g., Donny Kees, Dean Dillon, Rivers Rutherford, Marc Beeson, Bob Dipero among others) to provide the vehicle that ought to tidal him back into the charts. Produced by Alan Jackson's helmsman Keith Stegall, the backing is fresh and tight, but still bearing Milsap's patented blues-pop sensibilities.

When it comes to the songs, there's a paucity of bad tunes, meaning that each of these 11 entries are potential stand alone singles themselves. Best of which is the Dean Dillon, Scotty Emerick and Donny Kees, "If It's Gonna Rain," a George-Strait type of a ballad that has Milsap's perfectly capturing the angst of heartbreak elucidated graphically via the rain motif. "Every Fire," first cut by Restless Heart, continues with the theme of romance at its tail end over an understated yet gorgeous acoustic melody.

As I was browsing through the local branch of "America's largest retailer" (Guess who?), I came upon Milsap's latest, "My Life." Having long been a fan of the singer, I was excited that he had released a new album, having been totally blown away by the little heard and commercially disappointing "True Believer" from 1993. The latter was a tour de force and should've returned Milsap to his place at the top of the country/pop music charts. However, that was not to be. And "My Life" tries to return Milsap to the forefront.

Unfortunately, though Milsap is in fine vocal form, the songs lack the lyrics or arrangements of earlier Milsap recordings, leaving the singer to "fend for himself" on the smoothness of his voice alone. A third of the songs are worthy ("You Don't Know My Love," "Why Can't I," "A Day in the Life of America," "Somewhere Dry," and the bouncing "Local Girls), but the rest seem interchangeable "fluff" from a singer of incredible depth and soul.

But, because it is Milsap, I can't give him less than four stars.

I wholeheartedly agree with Janet. I've also had a chance to listen to this album, and there is no disappointment in any of the material for me at all. I'm very surprised at the lukewarm reception to Ronnie's new music from the reviewer, especially considering all of the cookie cutter music that... Read More
