All Music Guide - Robert L. Doerschuk
Though there are moments when he's clearly trying a little too hard, Chris Cagle delivers a generally agreeable set on his sophomore release. There are a few problems: the extremely crisp production has almost too much presence and the artist and his musicians seem to be emoting about an inch in front of the listener's nose. And Cagle's writing leans too often on the creaky formula of hanging the song on the hook of a knee-slap punch line. This can work as long as the language feels natural, like something someone in the country demographic might actually say -- which is why "we're not growing old, we're growing love" misses the mark on "Growin' Love," for example. ...

Cagle's decision to rhyme "change" with "change" in the same song is even more awkward. Elsewhere, though, his earnest, nasal singing and overall exuberance sell even the weaker material, and where he comes up with a writing gimmick that's actually fresh, such as the chronological breakdown of a happy relationship on "What a Beautiful Day," he hits a clean home run.

    Chris Cagle puts in good performance on second release

    I love CDs that you can listen to the whole thing without skipping bad songs, this is one of those CDs. This album has a well rounded blend of upbeat and slow songs. I would recommend this CD for those long summer car trips.

    Don't wait another minute to buy this CD!!!!

    I am not a total country music fan- but Chris Cagle is definitely helping to convert me! I love just about every song on the CD- this sophomore album definitely surpassed all expectations. With the gifted songwriters, Chris's voice (one of best I've heard so far in country)and his charm and sex appeal- I suspect Chris will be around for a long time to come (should we be so lucky!).
