Product Description

Amazon.com

You'd never have guessed that this country hunk would turn out to have a brain and a heart hiding under his Western gear, but Brad Paisley's Who Needs Pictures is among the more encouraging albums to come out of Nashville in some time. Rather than running from country's traditions, Paisley embraces them, going so far as to include the gospel standard "In the Garden" alongside original songs that tackle more contemporary subjects such as single motherhood ("He Didn't Have to Be") or church services that interfere with a Sunday out on the lake ("Long Sermon"). Just as promising, the guitars (Paisley's own picks) and fiddles here have been recorded in all their biting, twangy glory. There are problems--a few arrangements are predictably busy and the gimmicky fake-out ending of "Me Neither" is clever precisely once--but overall, Paisley's debut seems like a sign of something good about to develop. --David Cantwell

I'm not usually fond of the new talent that comes into country music nowadays. They always seem too untraditional and pop for my tastes. However, I'm MORE than willing to make an exception for Brad Paisley. He's one of the most talented new artists I've heard in a long time! He sings traditional country with a bit of humor in some of the songs on his debut album "Who Needs Pictures." In fact, the songs Me Neither and It Never Would've Worked Out Anyway are very comical. However, he can also be serious when he's singing about memories he has of a breakup (Who Needs Pictures) or the love of a step father (He Didn't Have To Be). I highly recommend this album to any country music fan! You will be amazed at the talent of this newcomer. I hope we hear much more from Brad Paisley in the future!

When Brad Paisley was recently selected to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry, he invoked the memory of Roy Acuff and Minnie Pearl. Many of the other cowboy hatted rock and rollers proliferating out of Nashville these days may have mouthed similar tributes. However, while it's highly questionable if the likes of Garth Brooks or Shania Twain even heard of Mr. Acuff or Miss Minnie before they attempted to snare country's loyal fan base, Brad Paisley's debut CD pays musical homage to Nashville's traditionalism.
Over the last few years, Lee Ann Womack and Chely Wright have done their best to get Nashville back on track, but its been quite a while since a male country newcomer was truly country. Songs like "Who Needs Pictures," "Sleepin' on the Foldout," and "It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway" would not have been out of place among Ernest Tubb's repertoire. The tasteful remake of gospel standard "In the Garden" is a welcome addition that seems impossible to imagine as a track on a Dixie Chicks or Faith Hill CD.
Even Brad's appearance is a happy throwback to country's better era. On the cover, his ten-gallon hat fits naturally unlike the Coca-Cola Cowboy style seen on so many of his contemporaries. His hair is refreshingly short, and he doesn't appear to be seeking the hunk status that populates so many sleazy videos these days. It's his music that he's selling because it stands by itself far better than the rocking sounds of Keith Urban, Billy Ray Cyrus, and so many of the other clones.
It looks like George Strait, Randy Travis, and Clint Black have a new member of their genuine country club, and Minne Pearl and Roy Acuff can rest peacefully again. Brad Paisley is bringing country back!

I first saw Brad in May of this year in Cincinnati, OH, at the Taste of Cincinnati in a free concert. Needless to say, after seeing his performance I went out and bought the CD the next day. Every single cut is fantastic. His musical abilities are tremendous. Not only can he sing, but he can write and pick a mean guitar. His humor is welcome in these troubled times. More artists need to follow his lead and lighten up. I have seen Brad in concert four more times and each time it only reinforces my belief that he will be the "George Strait of the next millenium". He also takes time to talk with his fans and asks for their opinions. He is definitely here to stay and the country music world is a much better place!

Brad Paisley is The Best thing to happen to country music in a long time! Brad is an excellent singer/songwriter/musician, a great all around entertainer! Brad's debut CD "Who Needs Pictures," is awesome, a must have CD! Every song on the CD is great! My personal favorites are "Who Needs Pictures," "He Didn't Have To Be(which hit #1! )," "Holdin' On To You," "We Danced," "Cloud Of Dust," and you've never heard, "In The Garden," until you've heard Brad sing it! I like the ballads, but I like the up tempo songs also, they're really great! I have seen Brad in concert twice, and met him twice, and Brad is a really nice guy who really cares about his fans! I wish Brad all the success in the world, and I just know Brad will become a household name...so watch out Garth, Alan and George! :-)

This is the best country album I have heard in a while. Brad Paisley is a true country talent and is going to be huge. This album showcases his remarkable songwriting, singing, and guitar playing abilities. The very first time I saw the video to "Who Needs Pictures", I knew I had to have this album, especially after I found out he wrote the David Kersh hit "Another You" based on a personal experience (he was dumped by his girl shortly after moving to Nashville). However, "Who Needs Pictures" is not the only hit on this album by far. "He Didn't Have To Be", a great song about a step-father in the eyes of a step-son, is destined to be huge. "Me Neither" and "It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway" are uptempo and quite humorous. I recently saw Brad in concert and had the chance to meet him. Not only is he a great songwriter/singer/guitar picker, he is also a very nice person. His debut album is great from beginning to end. Would I highly recommend it? YOU DERN RIGHT!
