This review is from: Tough All Over (Audio CD)
Gary Allan's latest has a backstory to it. The pain he grieves on this new set of songs is honest and heartbreaking to listen to. His voice has always had this sexy growl to it, but now it's weighted down with a sense of purpose and that makes this disc such a mood twisting gem.

The best cut off this disc is the "The Best I Ever Had." Alan didn't write it, but he lives in this song. He nails the delivery, tone and pathos of it. Also, "Just Got Back from Hell," is another display of his vocal ability.

I've always been a fan of his. In concert, there is still a clairty and comfort to his songs that makes the transition from disc to performance easy. He doesn't come across at any moment as if he doesn't have a great understanding of his craft, self, and what the audience wants.

I wish country radio would wake up and offer stronger support for a man who should be known on a bigger scale. If folks can clap and cheer on mass scales when Gretchen Wilson sings about "Skoal" why can't they appreciate an artist with heart.
