Product Description

Collin Raye ~ Walls Came Down

Amazon.com

Collin Raye arrived in Nashville in 1991 with two strikes against him: a history as a lounge singer in Reno and a decidedly uncountry moniker (real name: Floyd Collin Wray). Neither a sexy performer nor, with his soft, colorless tenor, a stellar talent, Raye nevertheless found a niche as a suburban Everyman. His sentimental but affecting middle-of-the-road songs found him wrestling with essential human drama, i.e., the pain of being a recovering alcoholic and the desire to be a better husband and father. This album further develops his persona as a simple family man--the kind who still believes in prayers before supper--trying to cope with a rapidly changing world. Lots of folks identify with that, and if this likeable, heartland lug talks a little too much about kids, mama, and corners of the heart, well, someone's gotta do it. --Alanna Nash

Format: Audio CD
Collin Raye strikes again with "The Walls Came Down". He has the type of voice that I could listen to for hours on end. Although a couple of the songs on this CD are really not my kind of country music (too traditional and slow), having his voice singing them makes them listenable. The standout tracks for me are "The Walls Came Down", penned by Collin himself, and "The Eleventh Commandment". The latter is an absolutely haunting song...not a country song, more of a contemporary christian tune than anything else. But it doesn't matter what type of music it is, the song touches the heart and doesn't let go. Collin's voice tells the story of the evils inflicted on children, and though it's a story we've all heard before this telling has a melody that is so dramatic it literally stops you in your tracks. Collin has many songs that have a powerful message, and this one is by far my favorite. It may not be commercially successful, but it gives me even more respect for him as an artist, especially since the liner notes make it very clear that Collin wanted this song on the CD no matter what opposition he would face. Another great album, but make sure you play it all the way through...the last song is the BEST!

Format: Audio CD
The Walls Came Down reaffirms Collin Raye's status as one of country music's top interpreters. His muscular tenor bites mightily into the hypnotically frenetic "I Can Still Feel You" and the mid-paced rhythms of "Anyone Else" with obvious zeal, while he sails angelically through moving ballads like "I Wish I Could" and "All My Roads."
What startles is Raye's emergence as a first-rate songwriter, with contributions to two of the strongest cuts on the album. The gentle bluegrass ballad "Start Over Georgia" offers a descriptive look at small town values, while the uptempo title track effectively captures the exhilaration and relief of removing a facade and revealing one's true self. This pair of gems - the latter written by Raye alone - bode well for his future as a complete artist.
Raye's affinity for message songs continues with the child abuse saga "The Eleventh Commandment" and its prelude "Dark Secrets." Unlike previous hits "Little Rock" and "I Think About You," which managed to entertain while making an important statement, "The Eleventh Commandment" comes on way too strong. Chalk it up as an ambitious failure that concludes an otherwise first-rate album.

Collin Raye has a knack for turning CDs into platinum. His latest effort, "The Walls Came Down," is no exception.
Every single track on the CD maintains Raye's high standard for timely and potent lyrics, appealing melodies, captivating bridges and memorable choruses. Most of these songs can easily become country hits.
Of such an exceptional grouping of songs, these stand out: "I Wish I Could" (a tender father-daughter number), "Someone You Used to Know," "All My Roads," and a chilling anti-child abuse song called "The Eleventh Commandment." The latter demonstrates Raye's continued willingness to tackle difficult subject matter as well as experiment with a different sound altogether.
In a world of mass-produced pop performers, the talent of Collin Raye stands out like a beacon. Whether you are a fan of country music or not, you will like Collin Raye.

This is a truly amazing album. Collin Raye is extremely talented and has produced great work in the past, but this is definitely his best work. From the optimistic start, with "Anyone Else" to the emotion filled tear jerker ending, "The Eleventh Commandment" this album is filled with fantastic music, that transcends the country/pop barriers that are so easy to find in music today. I adore this album and could listen to it over and over again. As far as the best songs on this album go, my picks are two unreleased gems, "All My Roads" and "Survivors." Talented artist, excellent writing, terrific music, all in all, a wonderful musical journey!

This is another CD of wonderful work performed by Collin Raye. He even wrote a couple of songs. He wrote the title track himself and co-wrote "Start Over Georgia" with his brother Scott. This was the first CD I ever owned of Collin. When I heard it, it brought tears to my eyes. It reminded me of when I first heard his song "One Boy, One Girl". That was 5 years ago. Every song he has done to date is an exceptional piece of work that only Collin can provide. He touches the heart and soul. I am not disappointed with this CD or any of his others. Please go out and buy it. It is well worth the money.

As usual Collin Raye publishes a great CD. Good combination of songs with the hits and songs we haven't heard but should. Of all the great hit songs on the CD, my favorite is All My Roads. If you like Collin Raye you'll love this.

This CD has got to be one of Collin's best. It's a must buy. The Eleventh Commandment is a strong & powerful song. All the songs on this album are heartfelt and wonderful.

This is Collin's best yet.There's something in here for everyone.From upbeat songs like "Anyone Else" to the type of soulful ballads Collin is so good at,like "I Wish I Could"."Survivors" is a personal favorite of mine,a song of holding on through the tough times. It's just a great album from one of the best artists out there.
