A strange mix, but a great album,
This review is from: Livin' It Up (Audio CD)
Most Strait albums are so well formulated, and predictable. He knows what works, what the fans want and delivers! This album departs a little from the norm, as did 'Beyond the Blue Neon'. Some of the traditional songs are very melancholy, while the others remind me of what Sinatra would sound like if he made a country recording. This rift in styles makes a strange mix for the album, but it is still good. I like this ' Frank Sinatra side' of George,and he shows his Sinatra influence with sincerity, while still being country thru and through.
