Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A collection of 14 impressive tracks that range from the honky tonk waltz "She'll Have You Back" to the album's first single, the emotional ballad "Please Remember me." It's country music Tim McGraw-style, the perfect blend of unique lyrics and stellar instrumentation with a dash of Louisiana seasoning thrown in to spice the whole thing up. Certified at 3 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)

Amazon.com

The party-hearty raucousness of "I Like It, I Love It" seems like a lifetime ago for Tim McGraw, whose fifth album strikes a more reflective chord. Whether ruminating on how it felt to be "Seventeen," making resolutions for "My Next Thirty Years," or probing the depths of Rodney Crowell's "Please Remember Me," his music shows the effects of marriage and maturity. Even the drinking songs, "Senorita Margarita" and "She'll Have You Back," share an older-but-wiser sentiment. While there are no duets with wife Faith Hill, her presence is evident on "My Best Friend" and "Some Things Never Change." McGraw wrote none of the songs here, but his emotional investment in the material results in an engaging collection. --Don McLeese

I was slow to catch on to Tim McGraw's music, because some of his biggest early hits were upbeat novelty songs--for instance, "Indian Outlaw" and "I Like It, I Love It"--and I figured that that was where he was going to be most successful. How wrong I was. In the last two or three years, I think Tim's music has actually gotten better. Maybe it's marriage and fatherhood, or maybe he does a better job of picking songs now than he did five years ago. Whatever the reason, I think A Place In The Sun is a great effort.
"Please Remember Me", the initial hit song from A Place In The Sun, was criticized for being overblown. I think that criticism is wrong. The song's writer, Rodney Crowell, has written a number of great songs over the years. I think this is another gem from Rodney, which Tim was smart enough to recognize as a hit--and the idea of one person's asking the other person to keep a memory of a relationship, even though the relationship is over, is skillfully done. "Carry On", about keeping a positive attitude in the face of adversity, is another great song. Even the drinking songs, "She'll Have You Back" and "Senorita Margarita" show a depth that was lacking in some of Tim's earlier songs. The title song, "A Place In The Sun", about searching for a "place"--meaning, a sense of belonging--is well-crafted. And "My Best Friend" is a positive statement about marriage.
Tim still gets up-tempo here.

Mr. McGraw's fifth cd, 'A Place In The Sun' is by far the best album of 1999. Songs like "My Best Friend", "Some things Never Change", and "A Place in the Sun" are songs that could make you melt. Songs like "Something Like That," "Seventeen," "She'll Have You Back," and "My Next Thirty" have a more fun - party feel to them. Tim's cd "A Place in the Sun", which was named CMA album of the year, and which has aready been certified double platium is a must have for any music fan.

I just started listening to Tim McGraw a couple months ago. My boyfriend bought Everywhere for me, and when I listened to the whole thing, I couldn't believe that I loved every song on that cd. I had never had that happen to me before. So, when I bought A Place in the Sun, I certainly didn't think that would happen again. But remarkably, it has, but in a different way than Everywhere. If you buy this cd expecting it to be the same kind of music as his last, you are in for a shock. It is the kind of cd that when you first hear it and you're expecting something different, it's not too appealing. At first, I thought it was a cd I wouldn't be listening to too much. But the songs kind of grow on you after hearing them a couple times. After getting over the initial shock. And no, there aren't a lot of fast honky tonk songs, but I think this cd is just another aspect of himself that he wants to show. If an artist doesn't change every once in a while, he becomes too predictable and that causes people to become bored. Instead of being shocked, you might've said, "Oh, it's just a typical Tim McGraw cd." My favorite song on this cd is "You don't love me anymore," and "A Place in the Sun." I only read one bad review of this fabulous cd, and I truly think that anyone who finds this a disappointment is lacking the depth to appreciate it. Maybe the words he used were too big. Buy this cd! I'm a reformed alternative rock listener. I'm hooked on country!

All in all it is not a bad CD. With songs like "She'll have you back" Tim goes back into the honky tonk type of music that has made Brooks and Dunn famous. However, there are a few songs that are quite slow and Tim seems to go into that whole gushy, emotional sounding wimp. He has a good country voice and it would be great for him not to do so many soft slow ballads. Although I love "Some things never change" this is one of the best songs on the album. The number 1 song "Please Remember Me" is quite that as well. That's why it was number 1. A little downer but has some good qualities. Hope we can repeat an "Everywhere" next time around Tim. :)

Tim McGraw is by far one of the top country artists of the late 90's and into the new millenium. Like "Everywhere" there isn't a bad song on this CD. I bought it as soon as it came out and wasn't a bit surprised - it's everything I expected it would be and more! My best friend will surely be "the wedding song" this year. A perfect song to let the one you love know how you feel.This cd is a well blended mix of emotional ballads and upbeat "feel good" songs. Favs: Seventeen,Somebody must be praying for me,My best friend,Please remember me,My next thirty years,Eyes of a woman,and A place in the sun. Way to go Tim!
