There are the romance ballads such as "The World" & "Flowers" that I hope are hits on Radio and video format as well.
But there is a single song on here that is worth the purhcase alone. The heartbreaking ballad, "When I Get Where I'm Going" has to be one of the most beautiful songs of the last 20 years. If this song doesn't warm you up then there is no hope. It guests, Dolly Parton -- who has been turning out pure Bluegrass heaven on her last three discs. Their vocal harmonies and soaring melodies is a amazing. I can't recommend the disc enough.
What I enjoyed the most about this cd is it shows Paisley's maturity as an artist. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of his wry humor packed into the 16 tracks, but he has delivered on his promise to take the fans "somewhere different". While I thoroughly enjoyed "Out in the Parkin' Lot" with Alan Jackson, the duet with Dolly Parton on "When I Get to Where I'm Going" is one of the most poignant country songs I can remember. It would be an injustice if this song was not released to the general public, no offense Alan.
Duets aside, you can expect typical Brad toe-tappin' rhythm's and soaring guitar licks. If there is a musician that has come out in the last 20 years that is as talented as Brad with the guitar I throw down the challenge to show me.
I wish I could rate this cd 6 stars because it deserves it! 6 years ago the country torch was passed; not to Kenny, Keith or Toby, but to a talented singer, songwriter and musician from West Virginia. Brad, here's to this year being the year you get the recognition you deserve!
Who would have thought that Brad Paisley could equal or even--GASP--better his previous CD, the stellar MUD ON THE TIRES? Well, get ready, folks, because Brad has just delivered another outstanding collection of songs that are both "vintage Paisley" and also fresh and bold.
It's almost unfair how talented Paisley is. Not only is he a great songwriter and vocalist, but he's a superb guitar picker. All of his gifts shine brightly on this CD. He is also excellent at picking and sequencing songs, as this release sports an excellent blend of the fun, the funny, the spiritual, the poignant, and the classic. His sound is, as always, authentic, traditional country, but Brad is anything but stodgy.
If Paisley didn't have an absolute blast making this CD, then he's a great actor. Songs like "She's Everything," "Alcohol," "The World," "I'll Take You Back," "You Need a Man Around Here," and "Out in the Parkin' Lot" (with the ever lovable Alan Jackson) are infused with Paisley's contagious joi de vivre and scream out for repeated listens.
But then again, Paisley can shoot an arrow straight to your heart, as he does on beautifully moving tracks like "When I Get to Where I'm Going" (Dolly Parton is a luminous co-vocalist here) and "Rainin' On You." "Flowers" is one of those unique Paisleyan creations that provides catharsis and knowing laughs all at once. "Cornography" is humorous, though not, perhaps, suitable for younger ears.
If you are a tough old coot who likes traditional country like Waylon, Willie, Johnny, or The Possum, you will like this CD. Or, if you are a young buckaroo with a lot of spit and vinegar, you will like this CD also. Either way, everybody wins with Brad Paisley.
