I'm not a huge country fan, and besides his movie roles I only accidentally discovered Tim McGraw & his music a couple of weeks ago when I read that he's the son of one of my Miracle Mets heroes, Tug McGraw (the subject of "Live Like you were Dying"), and then read further that he's got a good head on his shoulders too. I bought his #1's double album because it was $5 and I wanted to get to know his music better. Well, I only liked about half of his previous hits. I much prefer Garth Brooks. Then Amazon featured Emotional Traffic for $3.99. The clips sounded pretty good, and different, so I bought it. Wow! From the onset of the first unique track "Halo", I knew I was in for something special, kind of like when Loretta Lynn recorded "Portland Oregon." I love progressive country rock, and this album crosses over into that genre as well as others, including pop/R&B with the Ne Yo duet. The production seems to favor rock guitars, which is fine with me. It sounds even even better with headphones. There still is some twang, and the requisite Jesus song, but even those are palatable. Great job, Tim, this is one of my favorite albums in quite some time!

Love Good Music, I enjoy finding an artist that I really never related to and be totally awe'd by it and on this release, I took in these songs as they came out and now that the whole 12 songs are out and I've listened to it as a whole I gave this one a Big 5 stars, this is quite a listening experience, never new Tim Mcgraw had all these sides to him and has put together a collection of tunes that is so varied and has so much to say about life. Getting older and looking at things in your 40's and looking back and remembering all those little things makes for an interesting Hybrid of musical styles of Country, Rock, Adult Contemporary, Pop and even a little Funk! not an easy feat for any artist but this is a welcome kick in the musical ass, glad to find this gem! If you're like me and you have so many styles in your collection from blues, rock, folk, world and everything in between, give this one a listen, its good! Great real songwriting!

Tim has long been a favorite of mine. A main-stay in my top 5 artists. This release does nothing to move him out of that category, however, it does nothing to move him any higher either.
In recent years, Tim has taken to recording with his road band, The Dancehall Doctors, which has helped give his albums a more Country feel than the releases from the late 90's. In 2009, with Southern Voice, we heard Tim start to eveolve a little more, and add a little more Rock to the Country, but in a much more cohesive and powerful way than what he had done years before. With this release, it sounds as if Tim took a musical trip back to his Pre-Road-Band-In-The-Studio days. While some might see this as a bad thing, and I myself, was hoping it wouldn't be this way, Emotional Traffic has turned out to be a very powerful album. Sadly, Tim's band only performs on one track here, and you can here imediately, that their influence is gone from the rest of the record. But if you remember back to his brilliant Set This Circus Down, you'll remember that Tim had a lot of musical magic even without his band in tow.
We are treated to some arrangements that Tim hasn't really used in the past, to give some of the tunes a darker, jazzy type feel. The first two tracks are the best evidence of this. There is the token McGraw penned song, which has become par only in recent years. These are usually good, stand-out tracks, and the ballad chosen here is no different. Very strong and well produced, and even co-written with a woman who knows her ballads, Martina McBride.
The inclusion of last year's smash Felt Good On My Lips fits very well on this album, and it's placement in the running order provides the perfect kick once the tempo starts to slow.

Until recently I had never heard of Tim McGraw. I tend to lean toward instrumental classical music with a smattering of contemporary Christian, and my favorite vocalists include Josh Groban, Pavarotti, and Charlotte & Jonathon-you know, a square grandmother type. That being said, one of my favorite movies is The Blind Side- just love Sandra Bullock in anything she does and I particularly liked the subject matter in this film. I am compelled to watch it anytime I see it on TV, even with commercials (while I own the DVD-stupid huh?) So I started to notice the quiet persona of Tim McGraw, read on IMDB that he was a singer, and came here to Amazon to hear snippets of some of his music. I am not a country music fan, but I really like his music a lot. It does not seem like straight country to me (except for the occasional bad grammar)- but more like country meets bluegrass. A lot of his music is really very tender love songs. The lyrics are amazing and I know others have written that he should not get credit for that if someone else wrote them. However, he or his "people" have the sense to find songs that have some depth and meaning to them, and I credit him for that. I now have purchased all the CDs he has here on Amazon-I have learned how to rip mp3s and have loaded them on my little mp3 player and play them all day long and even at night if I am wakeful. They make me happy. I'm still not a country fan but I am a big Tim McGraw fan and will continue to buy his music. In my opinion, it is much more meaningful than a lot of the crap that passes for music today. And it does not hurt that he seems to exude enough testosterone for a grandmother to notice :)
