4.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 5 Dec 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Tim Mcgraw And The Dancehall Doctors (Audio CD)
He's done it again, absolutely outstanding stuff. Tim McGraw delivers one great song after another with a voice as smooth and sexy as bourbon. As usual he offers a couple of wholesome uplifting numbers ("Home" & "Sing me Home")a token Southwestern tequila-soaked tune ("That's why God made Mexico") which is one of the best in the album, with its unusual bluesy style, which continues in "Watch the wind blow by", his cheeky cowboy "Real Good Man" and a brilliant array of heartfelt ballads ("She's my kind of rain" "Tickin' away" "Sleep tonight" "I know how to love you well" and my favourite "All we ever find"). I hear "Red Ragtop" is the controversial first single,good song, but if you buy the CD unsure of the rest you're in for a pleasant surprise, it's a delight from start to finish. I can only reproach Tim that since Set This Circus Down he concentrates on the love songs- I miss the "I like it I love it" vibe. Other than that, this album is a definite winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit like The Eagles, 12 July 2003

So ... you've never heard of Tim McGraw? What about Faith Hill? You must know her ... well, he's her husband and also one of the biggest stars in America, having sold 25m albums and counting, using a well-trodden formula based on power-balladry and light, almost twee, country-pop. This is the New Nashville : gone are the banjos, waistcoats and "yeehaw"-ing of the past, and in its place there's a shiny, air-brushed and blow-dried parallel world of MTV-friendly artistes crossing over into the mainstream charts. Garth Brooks, Shania Twain and Mrs McGraw have all made the leap from respectable sales in a specialist market to full-blown iconic status on the other side of the Atlantic. Now Tim himself is raising the bar again, by making a (nearly) straight rock album. Could it be done? Should it be done? Well, given that The Eagles managed it very-nicely-thank-you some three decades ago, the answer is obviously yes. With his normal road band backing him, the "live" feeling of the record is deliberate, with most songs being recorded in one take and as a result it sounds tight and like everyone's having a good time. And why not? The music is uplifting, Tim's soulful vocals offset well by the heavy-ish guitar work, and the rest of the band cooks for most of the album. There is the occasional "twang" but the usual drippy "ma baybee left me, now Ah'm so ble[...]" sentimentalism is completely absent, and replaced by a quality "big band rock" sound. Don Henley and the boys would be proud and the album really wouldn't sound out of place if it really had been released by The Eagles in, say, 1976 ....
