Everytime Keith makes an album, it becomes my favorite.. but this one is probably going to be my favorite of ALL my collection of any genre! Keith has managed to bring out his "older" sound and go back to his roots, and to also fuse it with his "new" sound too. The vocals and guitar rifts are incredible, and I love how he has brought in some ganjo, keyboards,and fiddles as well. Each song has it's own personality, and I love that! Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this wonderful CD!

Keith's new CD is wonderful. Filled with beautiful love stories and then some upbeat "drive around and turn it up loud" music. There is not a single track that I would skip. I also purchased the Deluxe Version at Target and it contains a few more great songs, including a cover of Santana's "Winning". All in all, this album is fantastic. The instrumentation is great -- Keith brings back the banjo in a number of songs. And, his guitar playing is just stellar, as always. I've only had it for a few days, but have already played it enough to know the lyrics to all the tracks. Thank you Keith for your gift of music!

Every Keith Urban CD is worth purchasing. His voice is strong and warm and his guitar/musical abilities fun and exciting. New music from Keith is a happy day. The 7th track - Right on Back To You is fabulous. If it's not released as a single, I'll be surprised. You will love it from the first time you hear it. The 6th track - Georgia Woods is also a great song. #3 - All for You is very pretty.
