5.0 out of 5 stars A country music phenomenon 16 July 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Garth Brooks recorded some great songs many of which are included in this fine collection, which was compiled from his first five albums (Garth Brooks, No fences, Roping the wind, The chase, In pieces). Garth's phenomenal success in his American homeland contrasts sharply with his international profile. He became very popular in some countries (notably Ireland) but conspicuously failed to make more than a limited impact elsewhere, notably Britain, where he had a few hit singles but his chart history is not spectacular, so this review focuses primarily on his American career.

Garth's first single (Much too young) was a great song but the other two hits (If tomorrow never comes, The dances) from his debut album (simply titled Garth Brooks) really set up his career. Irish singer Ronan Keating later had a British number one hit with a cover of If tomorrow never comes. While his debut album provided Garth was a great start to his career, he was at that stage overshadowed by another rising country star, Clint Black. While Clint was never quite able to match the brilliance of his debut album, Garth took country music to a whole new audience.

Garth's second album (No fences) yielded four major hits (Friends in low places, Unanswered prayers, The thunder rolls, Two of a kind working on a full house). Garth co-wrote The thunder rolls before he had a recording contract and Tanya Tucker was the first singer to record it. Tanya's brilliant version was not released on an album at the time (it later appeared on a 4-CD boxed set in 1994) so Garth recorded it himself. The album eventually sold well over ten million copies in America, reaching out to a pop and rock audience that traditionally ignored country music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A MUST 7 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who has always berated country music, I challange you to listen to this album and NOT like one of the songs. The diversity of this album isn't great (hence 4 stars), but the quality is supreme. If you like cheese, then you'll love "Callin' Baton Rouge", or if love songs are your "thang", then I feel it's impossible to listen to "The Dance" without your heart being wrenched. Please give Garth a chance, and listen to this album....

3.0 out of 5 stars Liked only a few tracks 15 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Personal taste, but there are only two or three tracks that I really like on here, one of them being, of course, "The Dance" (it was worth buying just for that.
