All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The difference between Alan Jackson's 2006 album Precious Memories and its 2013 sequel Precious Memories, Vol. 2 can be seen in the cover art as well as heard in its grooves. On the cover of the 2006 album is a sepia-tinted photo of Jackson sitting on the steps of an old church; on the cover of Vol. 2 is a crisp, clean color snapshot of the singer in a studio, consciously posing for the camera.

Nevertheless, this is a reverent, resonant spiritual album distinguished by its sweet sincerity.

    Fantastic follow-up to Precious Memories.  For those of us who have loved the old hymns that we heard growing up, Alan Jackson performs them with the same sincerity and reverence that we heard in the old country churches.
