3.0 out of 5 stars So-So Album, 1 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Emotional Traffic (Audio CD)
I think a lot of McGraw's more recent albums aren't particularly country-ish, more a sort of slickly produced 21st century version of country rock - you know, the sort of things that won't scare the horses middle-class America-wise, but they've had a certain polish and swagger that's appealed to me! I particularly liked the last album, "Southern Voice", and the one from a few years back, "Live Like You Were Dying", both of which were very AOR-sounding but with some great country nuggets hidden away in 'em.

That said, I can't say I feel quite the same about this one though! He's quoted as calling it, "My best album ever". To me it just rolls past without leaving much of an impression. Best bits are the "Felt Good on my Lips" and "Better Than I Used to Be" singles.

This review sums up Time McGraw's new album well. When McGraw's career comes to an end, Emotional Traffic will not go down as a classic. Most songs are poppy rock and lack the serious messages of his earlier, country music. This new piece of work is a real disappointment. His collaborations with Faith Hill have never hit the lofty (country) heights of "It's Your Love"; and the remaining efforts do not compare even to the tracks that were not released on previous almbums, let alone to the string of hits that McGraw has had throughout his career.
