Almost 15 years since the release of this album. Maybe some say not their best...but my opinion is that this is one their best albums...and the song Too Far This Time should have...hands down...should have released as a single. I consider that song to be very well produced and written. I would consider it to qualify to be one of their top 5 songs out of everything they've put out...even though it wasn't a single.

B&D haven't put out anything captivating since album #2, but this CD has it's share of great songs. Even the Kix vocal songs are pretty good on this effort. Aside from the John Waite remake (which could have been left off entirely), this is a solid album, the best in awhile. Tracks like "Hurt Train", "You'll always be loved by me", and "All out of Love" are prime examples of what catapulted B&D to the top. Ronnie Dunn's vocals have never been better. A great CD if you're looking for a little less Honky-Tonk & Boot Scootin.

Maybe people were starting to take Brooks and Dunn for granted. Maybe they needed a break from each other themselves because they each used their own producer for this cd. And it doesn't seem like it is on par with their other cds before or after this. But it's a good cd. It didn't have any monster hits. And the songs that were released as singles didn't do as well as their earlier singles. This is still a good cd.Missing You and You'll Always Be Loved By Me I think are up to anything else they ever did. Beer Thirty is a good rockin' party song. The whole cd is decent. And they were back on track with their next cd.

Brooks and Dunn had been accustomed to success in a big way, with all their singles attaining high placings on the country charts - until the release of this album. For some reason, American country radio stations were less enthusiastic about the singles from this album. Only one of them (You'll always be loved by me, an outstanding ballad) made the top ten, with others such as Beer thirty (a great rocking country song) and Missing you (a cover of the John Waite pop classic) falling well short.

Clearly, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn were spending less time together, as they no longer co-wrote any songs together and they started using separate producers - Don Cook for Kix's songs and Byron Gallimore for Ronnie's songs. This may make for a less cohesive album but should not matter for a single released to radio. So it may just be that Kix and Ronnie did not make enough effort to promote the album via live appearances.

Whatever the reason for the failure of the singles (none of which made it to Greatest hits volume 2), this is an excellent album full of high quality music - great rocking songs and wonderful ballads. Apart from the tracks already mentioned, I particularly like Getting under getting over you (a great rocking song to open the album), Too far this time (a sad ballad), I love you more (a great ballad by Kix), All out of love (an original song, not a cover of the famous Air supply classic) and Texas and Norma Jean (a great story song by Kix), but I love the other songs too.

There is a bit of understatedness to this album. While some claim there is a split int eh album between Kix's songs and Ronnie's songs, I feel somewhat of a flow in the album that many seem to miss. The track "You'll Always Be Loved By Me" mentions the words "tight rope," the title of the album, a theme that runs through many of the tracks of the album. That theme is the fine line between love and heartbreak (the aforementioned "You'll Always Be Loved By Me" and "All Out of Love"), trying to get over somebody and realizing that that may never happen ("Goin' Under Gettin' Over You" and "Can't Stop My Heart"), denial that heartbreak exists and acceptance that things didn't, maybe couldn't work out ("Missing You" and "The Trouble With Angels") and finally the entire process of sorting out WHY things didn't work out ("Texas and Norma Jean"). Put this altogether, and you have an album that depicts every aspect of a relationship, from beginning, promises of forever, the temptations and mistakes that bring a relationship down and bittersweet endings.

A fine album from start to finish, despite what the charts may have said with the numbers.

I am a serious Brooks & Dunn fan and Tight Rope is equal to, if not better than some of their other albums. This album was definately a change of pace from previous albums, but it is a stepping stone towards what Brooks & Dunn accomplished on "Steers & Stripes" and "Red Dirt Road". Its true that none of the songs were co-written by the duo, but they each bring some unique material to the table and they are both amazing song writers. Ronnie's voice is flawless as always, but Kix also steps it up on this album and I think that his songs are a nice contrast to Ronnie's. If given more opportunities I think some of Kix's songs could shine as singles, but he is willing to let Ronnie sing on songs that have a good chance of being hits.
Anyone out there who has liked Brooks & Dunn will enjoy this album. Ignore the critics and make up your own minds as to what is a good record and what isn't. If you don't own this album you need to buy it.
