Trace Adkins' debut, Dreamin' Out Loud, illustrates that he does indeed have a powerhouse voice, one that's big and strong and capable of handling both honky tonk and ballads. It's a voice that makes singers into stars, and his producers must have realized this. Unfortunately, they wanted to ensure that Adkins became a star, so they gave Dreamin' Out Loud a production that's a little too clean and songs that are a little too predictable, when it's clear that he is capable of so much more. Even so, Dreamin' Out Loud remains a satisfying debut. Adkins sings his heart out on even the lesser songs, and when he does have a good number "That's a Bad Way of Saying Goodbye," ...

    Classis Trace Adkins

    I originally purchased this in 1996 and in the course of moving lost it a couple of years ago. I realized how much I missed his early stuff and had to re-purchase it recently. Glad I did! There is nothing about this CD that is not enjoyable to listen to. An essential part of any collection of his music and country music in general.
