All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
You'll find K.T. Oslin in the country section, but don't be fooled. This music is to country as Kenny G is to jazz -- a slicker, poppier variation on a familiar formula. And Kenny G's example to the contrary notwithstanding, there's nothing necessarily wrong with that. Oslin's reedy alto doesn't have much of that mountain twang to it her singing owes much more to Phoebe Snow than to Loretta Lynn, whether she knows it or not and you're not going to hear any tearjerking steel guitar on this collection. But you will certainly hear lots of snappy pop music with good melodies and slick production. Country radio listeners will recognize staples like "Hold Me" and "80s Ladies," ...

Country radio listeners will recognize staples like "Hold Me" and "80s Ladies," but if no one told you that "You Can't Do That" was a country song, you'd never guess. And who cares? This is great pop music, no matter what bin you find it in.

    Too good for country!

    She might think she is aging, but this lady can't get any more talented if she tried! She writes her own songs, sings great, offers a variety of sounds and songs. The group playing on this CD is outstanding. I wish she would do one more CD.
