Rather like the new Alan Jackson album from earlier in the month, there's nothing new here - it's pretty much Josh Turner by numbers. And that can only ever be a good thing! If you've bought one of Turner's previous albums and enjoyed it, I think you'll enjoy this one too!

It's an enjoyable album, giving us the usual mix of funky (and sometimes funny) tracks and slower, more thoughtful, gravel voiced tracks. Interestingly, the tracks that appeal to me most from the first couple of lsitens are those where he sounds less like himself, hence the odd title to this review. My favourite track on the album is "Cold Shoulder", a wonderfully traditional sounding song with superb fiddle and steel guitar that wouldn't have sounded out of place on a George Jones album in the 60s. Then there's "Pallbearer", a sombre but captivating song featuring Marty Stuart on mandolin - a song which you can just hear Marty doing himself. And this track is made all the more wonderful from the addition of superb, haunting backing vocals from Iris DeMent. Finally, listen to the gospel song "For the Love Of God" featuring Ricky Skaggs on mandolin and backing vocals. Again, a song that would sound perfectly in place on one of Ricky's own album.

The album overall is an uptempo affair and lots of fun. I found "Find Me a Baby" slightly too twee, especially when he's joined on the chorus by his children, but it's only three and a half minutes so I can live with it.

The deluxe version (is there a 'standard' version available in the UK?) comes with 5 live songs. I can't see anything on the booklet to explain where they were recorded but they're very flat live recordings and, for me, add nothing to the originals. Interesting to note that live versions of two of them ("Your Man" and "Long Black Train") also appeared on the deluxe version of his previous album .....

All in all, a great album.

Josh Turner has a very deep and beautiful voice. Discovered this singer by chance. I was watching the videos from Jace Everett (Bad Things) and Josh appeared in the list of related videos. I then tried 3 of his song/videos and enjoyed a lot. Next day after downloaded the album I've played for a group of friends and they all enjoyed as well.

Josh Tuners voice is big and unmistakable. It is a voice that deserves and needs quality material although it would sound good whatever he sings. I thought his last album "Haywire" had some good tracks but was ordinary overall by his high standards. This album is a return to form. Not sure the intro just like a boxer would be introduced is necessary. To me it is a bit hokey but I suppose a bit different and a fun sort of start. What follows is Turner at his best, great songs, a superb band and a great voice. Time is Love an excllent song. Pallbearer a sad and moving performance with great backing vocal by Iris Dement The gospel number with Ricky Skaggs is very much in the blue grass vanin and works very well. The other songs are mainly catchy and fun. No disappointing tracks. All great tracks. All great vocals. better that Haywire for me. Great album. If you love country music, you will love this. Highly recommended.
Highly enjoyable.

Great modern country album, well worth a listen. Highly recommended.
Takes a bit of time to be delivered by US sellers, worth the wait, for the money saved.

I had not heard of this guy before my wife mentioned him one day. But hey, what a wonderful baritone voice he has and so suited to the country songs he sings.
