All Music Guide
Tim McGraw's early albums always suffered from uneven material, but All I Want is a surprisingly consistent record that consolidates his strengths while allowing him to expand into new territory. He didn't abandoned the honky tonk and jokey country-rock that made him famous, but he made it rock harder and hired songwriters who would help him make it more believable -- just check the track "Renegade" for an example. Similarly, his ballads, such as "I Didn't Ask and She Didn't Say," and "Can't Be Really Gone," are heartfelt; they're delivered with convincing sincerity. In other words, he has grown musically and developed into a thoroughly entertaining vocalist. And that growth is what makes All I Want the best of his ...

It is still somewhat uneven, with several weaker songs, but McGraw learned on his first couple of efforts how to disguise the flaws in the material with his singing and lessen them considerably from here on in. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Thom Jurek

    Best Tim Album

    I have been a Tim McGraw fan for many years. This album has remained my favorite despite the success of Everywhere and A Place in the Sun. The best song on the album is the unreleased ''When She Wakes Up (and Finds Me Gone)''. He performed that song at his concert back in 1995 and it became my instant favorite country song. Tim has definately matured and grown as an artist, but this ''classic'' album is still my hands down favorite.

    Good Tunes!

    Tim was just really starting out his career with this album. His songs are great but no where near the phenominal songs on his later albums. My favorite song on this album would have to be 'Can't Be Really Gone'. Very sweet and smooth. He is a great artist.
