This is not one of Waylon's best albums, though it has a lot of nice moments, and he is in great voice. Some of the songs (Baker Street, Chevy Van) don't fit comfortably, and the whole doesn't really gel. Out of the West is done better as a duet with Jessi on 'Right for the Time', and there are no real stand-out performances, although 'Rose in Paradise' did give ol' Hoss his last number 1 hit. If you love Waylon regardless you'll like this, but if you're still finding out why he ruled country music in the seventies, or what the whole Outlaw thing was all about, this is not the best start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Waylon 11 Jan 2001
By Doug Lowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Waylon's rendition of "Defying Gravity" is worth the price all by itself. As usual, great musical backup.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good late 80's Waylon 14 Aug 2004
By William D. Ferrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First let me say that this is a very good CD. I now own my third copy of this recording. The first two were on cassette tape, and then a few years ago, I found the CD.

Now, this is not the CD to buy if you're trying to discover the Waylon "sound". For that, I'd recommend "Honky Tonk Heroes", "Ramblin Man" or "The Essential Waylon Jennings". However, like his "pre outlaw" material, this serves to show a different (and usually overlooked) period of Waylon's musical career. As the mid 1980s approached, the arrival of new singers on the COuntry Music scene found some of the guys who'd been around for a while in search of a new style. Waylon was no exception. When he signed with MCA, gone was the "outlaw" sound he had created while on RCA and new was the more polished modern Waylon sound.

This CD opens with a mid tempo sort of rocker called "Baker Street", and then there is the beautiful "I Can't Help The Way I Don't Feel About You" followed by the classic

"Rose In Paradise".

"Crying Don't Even Come Close" is another beautiful slow song with lots of steel guitar. "The Crown Prince" is quite a haunting story song, while "Chevy Van" and "Defying Gravity (Executiner's Song)" just leave you wondering why Waylon chose to include them in this otherwise good album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Forgotton 20 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one Waylon Jennings best and most forgotton recordings. He puts so much more feelings in this recording then some of his later recordings. Great listen. One of my favorites Rose in Pardise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Late-'80s Waylon 10 May 2003
By David E. Palmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Waylon did a number of albums with MCA in the late 1980s, including this one. They have a noticably different "sound" than his earlier RCA records. The production was a little bit more slick and "modern" than the raw sound of the classic outlaw days of the '70s. One thing was that Richie Albright was no longer on drums; another was that Waylon no longer played his own guitar leads on the records.
That being said, the new sound "worked" pretty well on "Hangin' Tough." The songs "Rose In Paradise" and "Crying Don't Even Come Close" are two of my favorites from this record. ("Chevy Van," a cover of a cheesy AM radio hit from the 1970s, is a track I could do without).
Altogether, this is a good record from a period of Waylon's career which tends to be overlooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waylon is Hangin' Tough! 24 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album/CD since it came out and listen to it quite frequently. It is good; no matter what the critic from Emap Magazine indicates in his review. I definitely did not perceive it as being pompous, humorless and out of date. Waylon was hangin' tough when he made this recording and still is. A great addition to any Waylon fan's collection.
