Thus, Gary Allan’s Set You Free is a perfectly named, well-conceived album that embodies his own evolution toward personal, creative freedom. The album, sequenced with a storyline in which a man breaks the restraints of a failed relationship and conquers ... Read more in Amazon's Gary Allan Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

While Nashville hitmakers Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney rose from clunky B-level stars to bankable stadium fillers, Gary Allan quietly tapped his foot waiting for the rest of the world to get hip to his cool. On his fifth album, the California surfer/singer--finally nominated for the CMA Horizon award in 2003--gets back to the smoldering alt-country-goes-mainstream groove that made 1999’s Smoke Rings in the Dark so brilliant, but which he’d abandoned on 2002’s Alright Guy. In a taut tenor, roughed up by cigarettes, liquor, and 3 A.M. ruminations, Allan sings about the inevitable surrender to romantic pain. On "Drinkin’ Dark Whiskey," he swaggers with roadhouse libido, bragging of "tellin’ white lies" as a blistering electric guitar break mocks it all. But by the next song ("Can’t Do It Today"), in which he angrily vows forgiveness won’t come soon for a cheating mate, the lyrics belie his torment: "I can see you dancing in that stranger’s arms/My world hasn’t stopped turning, but it’s fallen apart." Elsewhere, he sings of the joys and fears of fatherhood ("Tough Little Boys") and hauls in Jim Lauderdale for harmonies on the Buck Owens-meets-the-Texas Tornadoes romp of "Guys Like Me." But as the last cut shows, when the lights go down he’s the itinerant musician of Jesse Winchester’s stark "A Showman’s Life" desperate to stave off loneliness. It’s in the album’s blue notes that Allan shows himself to be country’s most important New Voice, superstardom be damned. --Alanna Nash

Customer Reviews

His cd's just keep getting better.

The whole album is very good, and not disapointing at all!

Vocally, Gary has a unique voice that is one-of-a-kind.

I fell in love with Gary Allan after seeing his video for Tough Little Boys. However, I didn't really like the song. Then Songs About Rain was released and I was sold. I also saw the great review this album got in Blender Magazine and was intrigued. Blender is not known for singling out Country artists. So, I proceeded to Amazon, purchased the album and haven't stopped listening to it since. I love it so much, I burned a copy for each one of my CD players, so I don't have to carry it around and worry about it getting damaged. If I had any say in the matter, every song on this album would be released as a single, they're all phenomenal. My favorite by far though has got to be the first track, Drinkin' Dark Whiskey. If you're a fan of country music this is a must have for your CD collection, don't overlook it!

I think it's pretty offensive when Gary Allan is nominated for HORIZON awards, when he's been releasing albums since 1996. If anything he should be up for Entertainer of the Year or Male Vocalist of the Year at the country awards. But that's part of Allan's appeal, is that he isn't overplayed like other male acts, yet he still brings in the solid hits time after time. SEE IF I CARE is Allan's follow up to 2001's ALRIGHT GUY.
The album opens with "Drinkin Dark Whiskey", a strong contender for a single, a nice honky tonk to open the album with. The first single is the sentimental ballad "Tough Little Boys", which was a big hit for him. The title track is a great ballad that would also make a nice single. "Can't Do It Today" is an excellent country song, that pushes his vocals. Other highlights on the set include "Songs About Rain", "Nothing On But The Radio", "I Can Love You", and "Don't Look Away". Overall another solid set, with any justice he will find a lot of success with this album and get the acclaim he deserves.

It's easy to underestimate Gary Allan. After all, he's been called one of the sexiest men in country music, and that title usually means all looks and no goods (if you catch my drift). If you look at the album credits, you figure that this guy's a one man show: doesn't write much, doesn't play, just sings. Maybe you think him inferior because he detours around mainstream country music, and does his own honky-tonk/alt-country thing.
It isn't until you listen to one of his albums that you realize that he can sing better than any of his peers. It isn't until you see him live that you realize he can play guitar as good as he can sing. And it isn't until you've listened to mainstream country that you discover Gary Allan's music is BETTER than what most radio stations play.
On his fifth album, SEE IF I CARE, Gary Allan delves into a mixture of contempory country/alt-country/honky-tonk. The album kicks off with the enchanting and rollicking honky-tonker "Drinkin' Dark Whiskey," and moves easily into the mournful, "i'll get over you some other time" tune "Can't Do It Today."
From there you hit the first single, "Tough Little Boys," an ode to fatherhood that, although an excellent song, stands out on the album as the only one of its ilk. The title track is in a similar vain to "Can't Do It Today," an "uncaring" kiss-off to an old flame seen on the street with her new lover.
"Songs About Rain," "You Don't Know a Thing About Me" (which features Allan's songwriting talent), and "Don't Look Away" explore the dark side of love, while "I Can Love You" explains that loving his woman is the thing this guy goes best.

Still trying to figure out why Gary isn't up there with Chesney, Urban and company in the popularity department. His cd's just keep getting better. I never tire of this cd or Smoke Rings in the Dark (my other favorite) though they all have something to offer a country music fan. He has one of the best voices in country music today. My favorite tracks are, "See If I Care" "Don't Look Away" and "You Don't Know A Thing About Me" but they are all quite good. He is definitely an artist with crossover appeal as my husband can attest to. Don't let the negative reviews fool you. If classical is your style you may want to look elsewhere, but if you like good country music don't miss this cd or the chance to see him live!

On 9/30 when this record came out, I rushed to the local music store only to find that it hadn't arrived. Sure, they had the new Sting and Dido CD's, but no Gary Allan. What the heck?!!! I live in Idaho people. Around here, you better have some country music! Anyway, this was perhaps the one time I've been glad to have Walmart nearby. Thank God they had it, because Gary Allan is the best thing going in country music. Every album has been wonderful and refreshing, and he has stayed true to the Bakersfield sound. Before his new album came out, I saw Gary on CMT and he said he thought "See If I Care" was probably his best, even better than his (and mine) previous favorite, "Smoke Rings In The Dark". I was a bit skeptical. I mean artists always talk up their latest release to sell records. But after one listen I found Gary wasn't kidding. "See If I Care" is gonna be big folks. At least it deserves to be. Gary's voice has never been better, and the album has a great mix of his trademark rasp and a gentle falsetto. The best cut is "Can't Do It Today", and my other favorites are "See If I Care", "Don't Look Away", and "You Don't Know A Thing About Me". "A Showman's Life", a duet with Willie Nelson, ain't a bad way to close the album either. My only complaint is Willie's (not Gary's) voice is the last one you hear before the CD ends. But that's a minor detail. This record is fantastic, something you'll enjoy from the first listen. And if you're already a Gary fan, what are you waiting for? Go get it!
