Review by Stratman

     Ronnie Milsap has always been one of my favorite entertainers, songwriters and vocalists. Not having heard anything for a while, I was anxious to hear this new CD. I was not disappointed. Ronnie Milsap is back with a vengeance. We have missed you big guy! This album is full of great songs, and music, the musicians are fabulous, it is well recorded and produced. What I am trying to say is “This is a GREAT album”!

 

     “A Better Word for Love” gets you going right out of the box. It is a great opening tune that blew me away. “Country Again” is a hot tune, kinda swampy sounding, in fact, Ronnie reminds me a little of Hank Jr. on this one. Love the vocals. Ronnie takes a little dig at “new country” and tells everyone the future looks bright for traditional country fans as “country is back again.”

 

     “Cry, Cry Darling” is classic Ronnie Milsap. It is old school country filled with his great piano work and vocals. ”You’re The Reason I’m Living” continues the classic country sound with a great steel guitar, vocals and harmonies. “Almost Mine” is a great slow dancer aka belly rubbin’ music. “Oh, Linda” has a great groove and makes you want to “git out on the floor”. Love the fiddle and honky-tonk piano. The horns add a nice touch, too.

 

     “Even Fools Get Lucky” is another traditional country song. “For A Minute” features some good fiddle playing. “Fireworks” has a really good groove and good vocals to it. “On My Own” reminds me of the old Ronnie Milsap tunes. “Trapped In an Old Country Song” is a nice little country waltz. “If You Don’t Want Me To (The Freeze)” is a fitting way to end an incredible album.

 

     Ronnie Milsap fans will really enjoy this album and those who have not jumped on his bandwagon or have never listened to Ronnie, will be fans after this on. Ronnie…. You done good! People rush on out and “git you one”. You won’t be sorry.
