Editorial Reviews

Gary Allan's new album 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 the loneliness of its aftermath, is the result of Allan's own journey as a man and as an artist.

He took a number of new steps during the recording process by mixing up the production team, playing lead guitar on a number of tracks, writing more of his own material and using a handful of new co-writers. As a result, he came up with the most optimistic album of his career, one that acknowledges the hurdles of the past and the ways in which they ve helped to shape his current sense of renewal.

Gary Allan has sold over 6 million albums and has more than ten Top 10 singles to his credit. Allan s latest release, Set You Free, features Gary as a co-producer with longtime collaborator Mark Wright and Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town). Includes the hit single Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain).

Gary Allan has been one of my favorite artists since he started in the 90's. He has never failed to make amazing music on any of his albums, and this is no exception. The special thing about this album, that most of the music of today lacks, is that it is made to tell a story as a WHOLE album, not just each song individually. From start to finish you can feel the story carry from one song to the next. To me it appears he wrote these songs about a breakup, going through the rough times of being angry, then sad, and at last, being "Good As New". It's definitely an album worth buying if you are a Gary Allan fan, or country music in general. Props to Gary for keeping real music with heartfelt lyrics alive.

I have been a long time fan of Gary Allan. This albumn is, in my opinion, the best of all his albumns. I am not sure I would call this a country albumn. Every track is incredible and not similar in anyway to others on the albumn. He changes tones well, rythmn changes well, and even style. Gone is all the dark stuff from past albumns. I think this should be Grammy related work.

I hope this albumn get the recognition and play it richly deserves.

Dear Music Appreciators,

Based on what I've read in some other reviews I think it's worth noting here that the Amazon customer review star rating system is not intended to be an objective critical analysis tool. The star rating system is intended to help communicate how much a reviewer personally enjoyed a product (which is completely subjective) and not to communicate an objective critical judgement as to whether or not a product is a "good" product or a "bad" product.

1 star = "I hate it"
2 stars = "I don't like it"
3 stars = "It's ok"
4 stars = "I like it"
5 stars = "I love it"

To me this means that it doesn't really make sense for one reviewer to dispute another reviewer's star rating, because really, who is that reviewer to try and say how much another reviewer "liked" or "didn't like" a product?

That being said, I "liked" Gary Allan's new album but I didn't really "love it", though I almost loved it. This means it's a good album and it's worth buying.

This is my first Gary Allan experience actually. First track, right away I thought "Steve Earle." That comparison faded over the course of the album, but the two singers do share some qualities. They both seem to have a certain rebellious/outsider quality and a certain kind of a gritty badassness that can be refreshing. Some Steve Earle fans might balk at the comparison but I believe the similarities are there.

One of my biggest obstacles to loving this album completely is the relative forgettableness (and corniness really) of the last four tracks compared to the first eight tracks.

You are going to be thrilled with Gary's latest album. This is classic Gary with song with meaning and a message along with his distinctive vocal sound. Every Storm (Runs out of Rain) will be a mainstay song that will be played for years because of its timeless message. No Worries is a fun song that get you to swaying and wanting to head to the beach. Will be anxious to see what other songs off the album shoot up the charts. Congrats on a job well done. Sit back and enjoy.

I always look forward to new Gary Allan music, and he rarely, if ever, disappoints. And with "Set You Free," he succeeds yet again.

Kicking off with the rocking "Tough Goodbye," Gary sets the course for an album with multiple tones. He then moves into his current hit single "Every Storm Runs Out of Rain" (which thankfully, is getting much deserved airplay). It saddens me that it will probably be the only hit on the album whereas somewhere back in 2005, a little song called "Honkytonk badonkadonk" managed to make it all the way to Number 2. What's wrong with that picture?

However, "Every Storm" is far from the only good track on the album. Easily one of the three best tracks is the amazing song "You Without Me," which spins the story of a man longingly wishing for the one who got away as she is clearly moving on with her life ("It's hard to keep my hands to myself when I know I could never never love anybody else. You're all I want and all I need and it's so damn hard to believe that's you without me").

Perhaps the only "dud" on the album is "No Worries." I put dud in quotes because it's not even a bad song, but it just doesn't sound like a Gary Allan song. While Gary is not beyond doing an upbeat song, this song almost seems chipper, which is not a tone I've ever heard in any Gary Allan song. The song sounds like something from Zac Brown Band (which I'd probably like half as much if sung by them).

That one song though hardly takes away from the stellar nature of this album. Gary is great at keeping traditional sounding country music alive.
