Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In paying tribute to her roots, Martina McBride doesn't merely cover a selection of classic country favorites, she conjures an entire era. You'd swear that was Floyd Cramer playing piano on the album-opening "You Win Again," and Chet Atkins picking guitar on the following "I'll Be There." The steel guitar featured so prominently throughout Timeless recalls a time when country sounded distinctly--and proudly--different from rock, while the background chorale on "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "Once a Day," as well as the soaring strings on "Rose Garden," remind one of the "countrypolitan" crossover sound. Except for a delicate rendering of Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone," McBride's versions don't really add anything to the originals, because these songs weren't missing anything. But she makes "I Don't Hurt Anymore" sound as fresh and pure as it did when Hank Snow recorded it more than a half-century ago, while her rendition of "Till I Can Make It on My Own" has all the brittle conviction that Tammy Wynette invested in it. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars simply stunning October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Okay. Here we go.

When you record a vocally flawless album.

When you produce said record on your own to have it the way you want it.

When your entire album was recorded track by track, not take by take (i.e. spliceless).

When you only use vintage instruments, including a 1939 microphone for recording.

When you record said album in a recording studio built and owned by you and your husband.

When you can belt one line then pull it back hardcore.

When you record an album solely on 1" tape, completely analog, until you tweak the balances before you digitalize and duplicate the album.

When you reach a point in your career that your label and your fans let you make an album of your favorites from 30 to 50 years ago.

When you reach that point and not care if it flops or not because of the musical experience.

When you're tied for the most awarded female vocalist in country music history (with Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn).

When Buck Owens proclaims you as one of the premier voices in country music ever.

When Marty Stuart refers to you as aesthetically amazing (in country terms, of course).

When people know that although you are a first rate vocalist, family and friends always come first, for real.

When you are asked to film two live concerts for PBS and CMT to showcase said album, and the live performances are equally as flawless.

Then I will proclaim you as my favorite female vocalist ever. Until then, which will be never, Martina McBride will always be #1 in my heart.

To my readers:

If you want to hear something other than over produced albums.

If you want to get back to simple music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Martina's country October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
For her eighth studio album, the sweet soprano of Kansas looks back and shares her favorite country classics. The well known songs will be sure to please fans of pure country music, but won't win very many new converts from the cross-over country camp.

Staying faithful to the traditional songs, the first single is a very pretty and powerful rendition of Lynn Anderson's 1970 number one hit "(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden", a great choice, and one of the best songs from this album.

Eighteen songs long, the album pays tribute to the greatest country icons of all time, such as Hank Williams, Ray Price, Don Gibson, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, Hank Snow, Tammy Wynette, Johhny Cash, Eddy Arnold and Kris Kristofferson. Dolly Parton guests on Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone".

A faithful tribute to traditional country music, and a great gift for a country music fan. Rated 4.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars This IS your parents country music! October 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Timeless" is Martina's album of classic cover songs. Lately several artists have recently issued an album of cover songs, George Jones and Dolly Parton for instance. Oddly enough Dolly sings on the George Jones disc as well as this Martina album. As for this album, it is filled with songs that Martina grew up loving. The songs go back to the 1950's and the most recent one being from the mid 70's. The album has a very dated feel to it, that was intentional. The arrangements and the instrumentation on the songs are exactly as they were originally done. In fact even the recording process was done as the songs would have been originally done right down to being mastered on analog tape!!! The result is a great retro album. If you're a fan of today's pop-country you may be dissappointed with this disc. Martina doesn't belt out on this album quite like she does on her original material, she simply presents the songs as they were meant to be heard. On the other hand, if you're a fan of classic country you will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars TIRED OF BUBBLEGUM COUNTRY? TRY THIS!! October 22, 2005
By demajor
Format:Audio CD
I have never bought a Martina McBride CD. SHe's too contemporary for me. This is my first Martina McBride CD because its filled with classic timeless country standards. Unlike Reba McEntire's "Starting Over" which featured country covers done in a Kareoke style, this CD is pure magic and country all the way. Every song on here is a favorite of mine and I'm proud of the way Martina has covered every one of them. Those that give this one a bad review are probably just teeny boppers who love bubblegum country. Thank God that this one is not one of those offerings. I'm sick and tired of hearing Country Radio filled with songs that are NOT country. This is as country as it gets and Martina is superb!! Hopefully this innovative effort will bring back "traditional" type country music!! This one deserves to hit the platinum mark very quickly and we are overdue for a traditional comeback for country music!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD November 17, 2005
By DJ True
Format:Audio CD
This CD brought back so many memories of my childhood. This is my mother's county music that I grew up listening to. I am so glad that Martina did not change a thing. The songs are just like the originals. Martina is an original and for anyone who has given this CD a bad review, you just don't get the old standard country musical ways. I love this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Martina - Now this is What Country Really Is October 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Despite hearing Martina McBride open for Garth Brooks back in 1992, I have never been a real fan. That's not to say I don't appreciate her talents, it's just that I have found her material lacking as far as the style and content of the genre I call "country" music. What is heard on country radio today is, sadly not country music and despite giving lip service to some of the greats, there are only a mere handful of today's so-called country singers who the greats would call truly country. By paying homage to the country music of yesteryear, Martina McBride has redeemed herself in my eyes (and ears) by gifting us with an album that any true country aficionado would be proud to add to their collection.

From the very popular to some that may be less familiar, these covers are like listening to country music history from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. And although many of these songs have been covered by others over the years (and sometimes a bit better) it's great to have them all in one concise package.

One complaint is that these are still a bit over-produced unlike the more simple productions of most of the originals. That said it is hoped by listening to some of these classics that the so-called country fans today will get a taste of what country music really is.

It is fitting that McBride should open with a Hank Williams tune with You Win Again - Williams is not only a name everyone should be familiar with but also absolutely worthy of the distinction of being included on a CD of classic country songs.

I'll Be There (If You Ever Want Me) was a hit for Ray Price but I recall the great Gail Davies cover in the 80s. This version, while good, does not come close to Davies'.
