10 Songs, 32 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In the first half of the ’90s, John Michael Montgomery was the biggest thing out of Nashville this side of Garth Brooks, and his third album makes that success easy to understand. On one hand, he had the vocal chops to bring a burnished glow to ballads like “I Can Love You Like That,” blurring the borders between country and adult-contemporary pop. On the other, he could rip out hard-twanging barn burners (the country-rocker “Cowboy Love” and tongue-twister “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)”) like nobody’s business.

This is a really good album

I have a lot of memories with this album. It was one of the first albums I ever got when I was a kid. Besides the hits ("Sold...", "I Can Love You Like That", and "No Man's Land"), there were a few other really great songs on this one. "High School Heart" is one of the best love songs he ever recorded. It really takes me back to my high school days when I hear it. "Cowboy Love" is a really catchy song that kind of reminds me of "Be My Baby Tonight". "Long As I Live" is another one of his really good love songs that never really got the recognition it deserved. This is one of the best country albums I've ever heard, and I highly recommend it.
