Garth Brooks' album Sevens is his best album since No Fences. Unlike the singles off some of Garth's previous records, where at least one was a throwaway song, every song on Sevens that became a single is great. "In Another's Eyes", Garth's duet with his long-time friend Trisha Yearwood, is the highlight. The country swing song "Longneck Bottle" is a toe-tapper that features some fine lead guitar work by its writer, Steve Wariner. "Two Pina Coladas" is a Caribbean-flavored song that, like "Longneck Bottle", has some great lead guitar work in it. The last of the big hits from Sevens, "You Move Me", is an uplifting song with some good background vocals by Susan Ashton.
There are other great moments as well--for instance, the driving song "Do What You Gotta Do", featuring the musicians of New Grass Revival; Carl Jackson's bluegrass-sounding waltz "Fit For A King"; the wartime ballad "Belleau Wood"; and the song "I Don't Have To Wonder", about coming to terms with the end of a relationship. In "I Don't Have To Wonder", the man's taking his girlfriend's ring from his pocket, "letting it fly", and watching it sink into the ocean is a vivid picture of the finality of a breakup, although Garth himself didn't write the song. Indeed, of the 14 songs on Sevens, Garth wrote only six of them. Although I think Garth is a skillful songwriter when he's at his best, I believe that on Sevens, Garth's willingness not only to use other writers' songs but to look for them is a sign that he knew what he was doing. Garth and his producer, Allen Reynolds, deserve a big hand for their song selection here.
To sum up, Sevens is one record that has "Great" written all over it.

I am usually not a fan of country music, but I decided to buy this cd the week Garth Brooks said he would donate all proceeds to Oprah's "Make a Wish" Foundation. Well, was I ever pleasantly suprised.
Sevens is one really good album. The songs have a smooth country feel with some rock characteristics mixed in as well. "Two Pina Coladas" and "Lockneck Bottle" are propably the two most well known singles, but others like "She's Gonna Make It" and "Fit For a King" are well done also. "In Another's Eyes" is a wonderful duet with Trisha Yearwood, and it has an incredible sound. I suppose that is what happens when you put two leading country voices together. Anyway, it is a thrilling song and a real pleasure to listen to.
All in all, this is a really nice sounding album, chock full top notch songs. This is easily one of Garth Brooks' best efforts. You will enjoy this cd.

Before I bought this CD I only had one other Garth CD (double live). But after I saw him sing Belleau Wood on his Christmas special, I just had to get whatever CD it was on.
Ater listening to that song a few million times, I decided to listen to the rest of the songs, and WOW are they ever great.!
There are some fast, fun songs like Cowboy Cadillac, Longneck Bottle. Some slower songs that make you think like I Don't Have to Wonder, A Friend to Me. And then there are some songs with messages How you Ever Gonna Know, Do What You Gotta do. And of course, Belleau Wood, what an incredible song, even people who have told me that they hate country music can't find anything bad to say about this song.
Overall, this would be a excellent CD to add to any collection, if you have some other Garth music, be sure to get this CD, I'm sure everyone will find something on it that they can relate to.

I bought this because Brooks does not allow his work to be sold by tracks on iTunes or Amazon. That's too bad, as I am sure he's losing fans as a result. Like most CDs, there are only two songs in this album that I like: Pina Colada and Long Neck Bottle. So I am glad I got them, but had to pay a high price for them. I probably won't buy any more CDs from Brooks or anyone else. I have moved on to buying just the tracks I like. He should move on also.

Garth Brooks is one of music's greatest. He most certainly is my favourite singer and entertainer in the music business. For almost three decades Brooks has enjoyed a career in music, that saw him eventually get his record deal with EMI's Capitol Records division in 1989. His debut album "Garth Brooks" rose to the top of the charts and follow-up album's "No Fences" and "Ropin' The Wind" cemented his success both commercially and musically.

Between his debut and this set there had been a total of 9 albums to his credit. His previous studio album had been "Fresh Horses" and although it had done very well, critics were beginning to claim Brooks was washed up and running out of ideas. This album is proof, if any was needed, that they were wrong.

The album starts with "Longneck Bottle" (a track written by Brooks' friend and fellow Country singer Steve Warierner), a hard hitting Country song with a humours streak about whether to say in the bar or go home ("Longneck Bottle let go of my hand/Jukebox don't play that song again/I got a girl at home that loves me/She won't understand"). This was the 1st single off the set and the one that was played on radio stations the world over before the album was put out.

It was immediately followed by "How you ever gonna know?", this has to be my favourite track on the CD, Brooks' deliverance of powerful lyrics has always been one of his many greatest assets as a performer and this song puts that gift to good use ("How you ever gonna know/What it's like to be there/How you ever gonna know/How it feels to fly/How you ever gonna know?
