Editorial Reviews

One artist...one decade...one hundred million albums sold! Garth Brooks remains the biggest Country artist of all-time. He harnessed the Country and Pop influences of has past and created a new kind of Country that appealed to different generations of fans and crossed over into the Pop market like no other artist before him. Garth Brooks changed the rules based on his talent alone. He became a worldwide superstar while remaining true to his humble roots, which added to his appeal. This is his 2001 album (and final full length studio album before he retired from recording and touring) and features 'Why Ain't I Running', 'Wrapped Up In You' and When You Come Back To Me Again'. Pearl.

Being a rabid Garth Brooks fan, I love ALL of his albums. But even I found some of his more recent work (1997's Sevens, for instance) lacking a soul. On Scarecrow Garth has found whatever it was that his music lost in the late 90's. "Wrapped Up In You," is a happy, infectious song that you'll find yourself humming hours later. Powerful and evocative, "The Storm" is an appropriately dark sequel to the theme of "The Thunder Rolls." "Thicker Than Blood," with its references to Brooks' own family, is touching and for some reason makes me smile every time I hear it. A dark and melancholy ballad, "Mr. Midnight" defies explination. "Big Money" and "Mexico or Rodeo" are toetappers with a sense of humor. Without going into all of them, I can say that there is not a weak song on this entire album. It's a pure joy to listen to all the way through. This CD is typified by great lyrics, spices of harmonica, fiddle, piano, banjo, and steel guitar, and the excellent vocals of Mr. Brooks at his most diverse and powerful.

I can't begin to say how impressed I am with Mr. Garth Brooks on this album. Versatility at it's best, the man is just flat talented. Musically speaking, this album has so much depth. One example is the addition of some strings on the album during songs like "The Storm". This song is so powerful the chords just seem to capture you and take you along for the ride. There is something on this album for everyone with influences ranging from James Taylor to Billy Joel and Elton John and back to the country roots again.
As a fan, I love all of Garth's albums. As a musician, I have to admit that Garth has outdone himself here. The musicians that appear on the album are FANTASTIC!! He's left me standing just about speechless for days, not knowing how to describe it....but just knowing it has me "Wrapped Up" to the point where I just can't let go. And with something this awesome, who'd want to??
What's great about this album is that whenever I get a new album there are one or two songs I kinda skip sometimes until they grow on me....but with this album I can honestly say there isn't a single one I have skipped over since day one! They are ALL great music. You can be sure that if you pick up this CD you are holding that man's heart in your hands!

Scarecrow is a fine album - one that favorably compares with Brooks' best efforts. Garth and longtime producer Allen Reynolds have put together a set of songs that move effortlessly between poignant and exhuberant. It is, however, more than just a country album.
From the start of his recording career, Brooks has shown us that his range of influence spans beyond traditional country. Garth's composition "Thicker Than Blood" is a tribute to familial devotion that takes on a global importance in light of the the September 11 tragedy. It recalls vintage James Taylor, while the first single, "Wrapped Up in You," has a Paul McCartney meets the Kingston Trio feel to it, and "Mr. Midnight" seemingly crosses Billy Joel with Harry Chapin.
After the bland Chris Gaines' CD, it is nice to hear Brooks cut loose on a set of uptempo tunes that create a little ruckus. He sounds delighted to be in the presence of his hero George Jones on the duet "Beer Run" while "Squeeze Me In" finds him whooping it up with Trisha Yearwood. "Big Money" and "Rodeo or Mexico" are particularly fun, while his bluegrass rendition of America's "Don't Cross the River" is a rootsy gem.
Emotions run the gamut on this album, from the optimistic love song "Why Ain't I Running" to the pessimistic "The Storm." "When You Come Back to Me," which Brooks recorded for the film Frequency, hits home with its theme of reconnecting with a loved one, while "Pushing Up Daisies" takes a chilling look at Brooks' father's disconnection with life since his wife's (Garth's mother's) death last year.
It all combines for a well-balanced package, sometimes fun, sometimes moving, and usually substantial. If it is Garth's last release (don't hold your breathe on that one), this was a great swan song.

Garth Brooks says this is it he is retiring. Lets see in 5 years.
However "Scarecrow" is a good effort with good songs. Nothing special here. It sounds like Garth, it is Garth and vocally he is stronger than his previous albums.
This is your basic country middle of the road album with Garth Brooks at the helm of the microphone.
Standout songs are "When You Come Back To Me Again" and the duet with Trisha Yearwood titled "Squeeze Me In".
Though Brooks vocals seem stronger here, the songs from his previous albums are stronger than what "Scarecrow" delivers.
Not a bad album at all, just not his best. The songs seem to just sit there except for the two I mentioned. The production is middle of the road, the arrangements are (been there, done that scenario), and the songwriting is just ok.
For the Brooks fan I say buy it to complete your collection, for the new Brooks fan buy his earlier works first and get a better bang for your buck.
....And Garth when you see Barbra at dinner tell her all your fans will see you too in about 5 years, because your ego is too strong to end on a note like the (3 star-"Scarecrow").
