EDITORS’ NOTES

Some artists wait their entire careers to record an album as powerful as 2004’s Live Like You Were Dying. In Tim McGraw’s case, it took a decade’s worth of country music success to reach this level of emotional honesty and creative nerve. This album is easily McGraw’s most substantial work, a 16-cut exploration of faith, loss, endurance and fleeting happiness.

A Modern Tim

Tim is a classic on this album, wihtout going to far back, or ahead. He remains true to his country roots, while throwing a classic rock twist into the country twang. Tim seems to show talent in his most recent album, while not selling out. Do not be discouraged by some of the song titles, it's about the music. If you're looking for some good ol' country without the glare of a twang, give this a try. Tim's best so far.(and I consider myself a huge tim fan)

Strongest album in years

Live Like You Were Dying is filled with great songs. I would have liked to see a few more up-tempo songs, but the selections on this album tell vivid stories. Besides the title song, Do You Want Fries With That succeeds despite the odd refrain, while Just Be Your Tear has a catchy pop hook and Blank Sheet of Paper would impress your English teacher (with its view of writer's block from the perspective of the paper).
