    a tearjerker album from one of the best!

    I've kind of placed Gary Allan on a pedestal in the Country music genere, because I think his music is unique, in that I haven't heard any other quite like his. I don't actually have this album but I'd definitely get it if just for "Best I Ever Had" and "Life Ain't Always Beautiful". The former has a great guitar melody, and Gary's gravely voice really shines, to bring out the overall message of the song. As for "Life Ain't..." I can't think of any other song that has touched me as much as this one has. Not only is it just beautiful, but the message, and Gary's ability to be able to say what this song says, goes to show that even when everything is taken away from you, it's possible to see life for what it really is: "..a beautiful ride." Gary Allan definitely has exceptional strength to be able to deal with the terrible way his wife died, coming out with such a wonderful album only 1 year after the tragedy happened. If you're looking for an album that comes from the heart, look no further, it has arrived!

    Best bitter-sweet lyrics since Dwight Yoakam

    The gritty words in many of these songs are a perfect match with his edgy, raw singing style. All in all it makes for a fun ride. Just the right about of anger and pain in his voice for the rocker songs, Nicka Jack Cave, He can't quit her and Just got back from hell. Reminds me of Dwight Yoakam's classic breakup line, "Thank you for Teaching me brand new ways to be cruel."

    Very good album from Gary

    Some very good songs from Gary Allan, I was wondering how the untimely death of his wife would affect the songs he would record for the album. Lots of pain came out in his voice, and there is some interesting sound effects in a few of the songs. All in all, get the album if you are a Gary Allan fan...keep up the good work! Mike G.
