Album Review

It's hard to say who this double-disc in a box collection will appeal to: Tim McGraw has more die-hard fans than just about anybody in contemporary country music These are two of his best records, and anybody who appreciates him has these already. That said, if for any reason you are curious about this guy, if you've not spent time listening to contemporary country and have been bitten by the bug, then do yourself a favor and check these out. McGraw may have helped to invent the formula, but he is also the one who stretches it too. The man rocks and rolls and swaggers; both these records have hard honky tonk strutters balanced by mid-tempo ballads imparting everyday wisdom and slower songs that are weepers or tender love songs. There is a reason McGraw is at the very top of the heap: he belongs there.
