Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the Country Music superstar. Jackson's 18th album (including two hits collections), Freight Train was produced by longtime collaborator Keith Stegall and features 12 songs, one of which is Jackson's hot single, the Stegall co-write, 'It's Just That Way.' Eight of the album's dozen tracks bear Jackson's songwriting credit, including one he penned with Roger Murrah, with whom he wrote one of his biggest hits, 'Don't Rock The Jukebox'. In a moving tribute to the legendary Vern Gosdin, who passed away last year and for whom Jackson has long expressed admiration, Jackson enlisted Lee Ann Womack to record 'Till the End', Gosdin's 1977 classic duet with Janie Fricke.

Prime Cuts: Every Now and Then, Taillights Blue, It's Just That Way

Despite Alan Jackson's denial that there was any enigmatic motive in entitling his 14th album "Freight Train" but it is still an appropriate album title. Just as a freight train is not about speed but about going the long haul, these 12 tracks are not about chasing the latest trends, they are quality songs that are going to be etched into the memories of fans for years and years to come. Just as freight trains hearken back to the days of old-fashioned gait, these paeans belong to the best of traditional honky-tonk country sung in Jackson's most affectionate southern-drawl tenor. If you like steel guitars, soft strumming of the guitar and everything rustic--this is a feast for the ears. Jackson once again delivers 7 solidly self-written cuts, one a co-write with Roger Murrah, and 4 well-chosen covers, one of which coming from Adam Wright (Jackson's own nephew).

If there was ever any doubt if Alan Jackson is the best thing that has had ever happened to country music, just take a listen to "Every Now and Then." In the tradition of Jackson's heart-tugging signature ballads such as "If I Could Back Up" and "Gone Crazy," "Every Now and Then" brings out all the bittersweet memories of a love that has ended with so much realism that you swear Jackson has had read your own diary. Another absolute charm is the Adam Wright co-write "Taillights Blue," a devastating piece of heartache, which calls to mind Clint Black's "Nothing But the Taillights" but done at a slower pace with an even more gorgeous melody. Romance in its more blissful moments do get a mention on "It's Just That Way.

This album is a return to a very classic country sound. Not a lot of rocking, beat heavy tunes. Just good easy listening music that reminds me of Alan's early career. I'm thrilled with it.

I've been a huge Alan Jackson fan since about 1995. I don't know how I missed him before that, except I was being inundated by the heavy metal eminating from my teenagers' rooms! Still I never really paid close attention until my brother-in-law loaned me his Drive (For Daddy Gene) CD. I was instantly hooked! While my AJ library is still relatively small (I buy when I can afford to), I lean toward greatest hits albums. But once in a while, a title reaches out and grabs me, an I have to have that particular CD and don't rest til I get it. Sometimes, that takes a while.

A couple of years ago, without ever having heard a single cut from the album, I bought the Good Times CD. It might have been the best purchase I had made up to that point. The title song just about says it all, or as I've heard said in the south: He said mouthful! Even thought I'm no longer able to dance, that single song makes my toes tap as if they have a mind of their own.

Yesterday, I received my copy of Freight Train, and although I've only had time to listen to it straight through once, I picked out three of the best on the album: Freight Train, Tail Lights Blue, and Hard Hat and a Hammer. If ever any one singer/songwriter knew how to connect to his audience, Alan Jackson has to be that ONE.

Of course, my opinion of him is based on a couple of things we have in common, as well: His birthday is October 17, while mine is October 12, he was born in the south. I was born in Alabama and raised by southern parents, though not in the south. And I think his daddy and mine would have gotten along wonderfully. Drive (For Daddy Gene), and Small Town Southern Man, could easily have been written about my own dad.

Alan: I hope you have many more in you. Keep 'em coming!

Packin' up the Freight Train after more than 20 years with Arista Records, Alan bids a consistent farewell to a Remarkable chapter of his career! This album (out now for just a day) most admittedly does not hit you like "Good Time" the best country album from 2008-2009. In terms of Country Music awards "Good Time" was the most over-looked album in over a decade. Why? Maybe the Nashville-elite didn't like the fact that Alan Jackson went it alone and wrote all 17 tracks on the album with great success! It was a career first for him, although he has always been a prolific writer of "simple-songs" and most of his own biggest hits. Well, on "Freight Train" he lets a handful of others into the mix on 3 tracks and pulls off a fantastically country-to-the-core cover with Lee Ann Womack on the Gosdin penned "Till the End."

"Freight Train" might lack many of the number 1 knock-out hits that made "Good Time" great, however, I think that it is more consistently good... There isn't a weak track of the new album's 12 tracks, while the last had a couple of "I Still Like Bologna" & "Nothing Left to Do" type tracks that weren't horrible yet put a few kinks in an otherwise outstanding 17 track line-up. [For my tastes, anyway] "Hard Hat and a Hammer" is another in a line of tribute to the "working class hero"-type songs that Alan has been so good to put out over the years... This gets the album off to a decent enough start which highlights include, but aren't limited too the first single "It's Just That Way," "Freight Train," "Taillights Blue," "Till the End," "Big Green Eyes," and my personal favorite upon my first listen "True Love is a Golden Ring!" Alan Jackson's songs make a great soundtrack to the life a "simple-man" which probably explains why he's my favorite living country artist.
