Another great album from a true superstar! My personal favorites off this album are "I've Seen That Look On Me A Thousand Times", "Haven't You Heard", "In Too Deep" and most of all "Lefty's Gone". Crank up the CD player and enjoy over and over!!!

This is his best CD ("Beyond The Blue Neon" not far beyond), with everything on this CD being 5 out of 5 songs. It has "The Chair", which needs no explaination (If you are reading this review, you obviously like country, and you know it well), it also has "In Too Deep", which is a top 10 Strait song, "Haven't You Heard", and "Lefty's Gone" (BOTH of which need multiple playings to appreciate), all of which are on "Strait Out Of The Box"( I cannot stress this collection enough). Then there are the reasons to get it (If you don't it is even more important to get it), the title track "Something Special", which I love, and then there is "Dance Time In Texas", which is my favorite track on this CD (I only prefer "Living Well", "Ocean Front Property, and "You Know Me Better Than That" of all George songs). The rest of the tracks are flawless, and this CD is my answer to ANYONE who thinks George always does the same stuff. "Something Special" really is just that, the best Strait ever.

George Strait combines modern day country with good old western swing in this album with songs like Something Special, The Chair, and Dance Time in Texas. This is one of George Strait's best albums and every song contains that special Strait quality and touch.

Well, one of the few criticisms you hear about George is that all of his albums sound the same. I might reluctantly concede to some point to this assertion, but I'll then respond "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This album, however, contains four songs that represent some of the biggest changes-of-pace in style that George has ever done, all done to wonderful effect.
Haven't You Heard displays the same ol' "wife leaves husband for another man" line, but this time, the situation is related in a meeting between the Other man and the wife's son. This viewpoint is both original and satisfying. The Chair is one of those rarities in music - a hit song without a chorus. It illustrates a slick progression from a chance encounter to a blossoming romance. Dance Time In Texas, while being not a standout lyrically, showcases three different styles of music in its run, uptempo swing, waltz, and a standout Cotton-Eyed Joe. Finally, Lefty's Gone is a touchy, moving tribute to the late Lefty Frizzell.
Among the others, Something Special became an instant wedding song, and Last Time and Redneck Feelin' Blue are solid at their respecive styles. The only weak link is the ho-hum, below average Blue Is Not A Word.

This is the darkest in tone of all the albums George Strait has recorded, but that doesn't mean it's not great because it certainly is. Only two hits were pulled from this one-The Chair and the title cut-which is unusual in itself. However, there are a few other fantastic songs on it that could have easily been hits. Haven't You Heard, Lefty's Gone, and You've Sure Got This Ol' Redneck Feelin' Blue are all radio-worthy, but maybe George and MCA felt they were a little too dark for release to the mainstream. Who knows? The bottom line is that this is another first-rate effort from the reigning king of country music----Mr. George Strait.

SOMETHING SPECIAL was the follow-up to 1984's DOES FORT WORTH EVER CROSS YOUR MIND, an album that won Album of the Year honors from both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. This album is decidedly *not* DOES FORT WORTH... II. Instead, it seems Strait set out to find the most interesting sounding songs he could find, and if that was indeed his objective, he nailed it.

Just two singles came from this album ("The Chair", one of the most interesting and coolest sounding songs anyone has ever cut, and the title track, "You're Something Special to Me"), so it may be easy for radio listeners to gloss over this one, but what makes SOMETHING SPECIAL stand out is the concentration of songs that have a really unusual melody and sound. Strait himself selected fully half of the album (the two singles, plus "Haven't You Heard", "In Too Deep", and "Lefty's Gone") for inclusion in 1995's STRAIT OUT OF THE BOX.

These songs dominate the album, to the point that it seems the title track, "You're Something Special to Me" had to open the record because otherwise it would have been drowned by its more peculiar-sounding companions. (That's my theory, because otherwise "Dance Time in Texas" seems like the obvious choice to be the first track.) So, yeah, you can find "The Chair" and "You're Something Special" on several compilations, but if you limit yourself to these, you're missing out on some of the more interesting recordings in Strait's entire discography.

Could not believe that only 2 singles were ever pulled from a great album like this. But yet again like some have said even though how great the songs are on this album they are a little bit on the darker side. This is as country as you will ever hear George Strait. Every single song is traditional country there is no pop country or any electric guitars used on this one. So many great songs on this one like You Sure got this ol redneck feelin blue, Leftys gone,In too Deep, Haven't you heard, Dance time in Texas, I've seen that look on me a thousand times,and I believe that that is basically nearly the whole album. The two singles were great but there are just too many songs ignored on a great album like this. This to me looks like his first all around great album with all 10 songs of great country. Much better than Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind.
