Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Six albums and nearly a decade into his career, perhaps it could be said that Alan Jackson was beginning to rack up the miles in 1998 when he released High Mileage, but he surely doesn't sound ragged or rickety on this typically stellar affair. As always, one of the most impressive things about Jackson is that he never seems forced -- he always sounds relaxed and natural, especially on the lazy Western swing of the opener, "Right on the Money," which starts the album off on an appropriately unhurried note. This is a mood that Jackson sustains throughout High Mileage, which is by far the most relaxed album he's made to this point, with even the livelier numbers ...

Six albums and nearly a decade into his career, perhaps it could be said that Alan Jackson was beginning to rack up the miles in 1998 when he released High Mileage, but he surely doesn't sound ragged or rickety on this typically stellar affair. As always, one of the most impressive things about Jackson is that he never seems forced -- he always sounds relaxed and natural, especially on the lazy Western swing of the opener, "Right on the Money," which starts the album off on an appropriately unhurried note. This is a mood that Jackson sustains throughout High Mileage, which is by far the most relaxed album he's made to this point, with even the livelier numbers -- such as the skipping Bakersfield redux of "Another Good Reason," a particularly funny drinking song -- being a little bit subdued, carrying some of the mellow vibe of this ballad-heavy album. This may be long on slow tunes and laid-back melodies, but that doesn't make High Mileage dull. There's a certain level of introspection to the songs, a meditative quality, that gives the album depth, but the songs half of which are originals are strong and Jackson's delivery, as ever, is warm and compelling, making High Mileage a startling, rewarding departure from his previous records and proof of his depth as an artist.

    A Great Comeback Album!!!

    After going through separation and remarriage of his wife Denise, Alan Jackson recorded a great album to catapult him as one of the greatest country stars today. His hits "Right On The Money", "Gone Crazy", "The Little Man", and "I'll Go On Loving You" are music to my ears. This album is an A+!!!

    The Usual from Alan Jackson - Excellence

    Alan Jackson is one of today's great country singers and songwriters. He ranges from fun songs to sad, introspective pieces about love's mistakes and heartbreak. They say this album is ''dark''. I don't believe that, it was written when he was having problems in his marriage, so his work shows his pain and sadness especially ''Gone Crazy''. However, you couldn't find a more beautiful sensitive, love song than ''I'll go on loving you''. This is Alan Jackson at his best: happy, sad, sensitive, funny.
