Overview

Legends often take some time to arrive. In Patty Loveless's case, she cut four underappreciated albums for MCA, then moved to Epic, underwent throat surgery, and returned to the studio with new purpose. Only What I Feel showcases her canny combination of a sophisticated, thoroughly modern attitude coupled to a honky-tonk heart. The opening track, "You Will," is a kick-ass rocker made more effective by Loveless's hard-country delivery. "Mr. Man in the Moon" is a two-step shuffle that practically reeks of sawdust on the floor. "Blame It on Your Heart" is a kinetic honky-tonk number that's guaranteed to induce dancing in the most sedentary listeners. Finally, "How Can I Help You Say Goodbye" is an absolute tearjerker about letting go of loved ones. Loveless's intuitive sense of restraint keeps the tune from ever turning maudlin and makes it one of her greatest recorded moments. The wide emotional palette on display here makes clear why Loveless is one of the most respected singers of the '90s.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael McCall
Loveless underwent throat surgery and switched labels before creating this album, and both helped. She sounds stronger and more impassioned than she had in years, and her artistic drive seemed more confident and determined. "Nothin' but the Wheel" ranks with her best ballads.
