Overview

Say No More is another winner in the classic Clay Walker mold: that is, vividly romantic songs energized by Walker's impassioned, nuanced singing. While the power ballad title track finds Walker exorcising the pain of a breakup, many of the songs here deal with the sustaining power of love -- particularly "Real," which soars with feather-light backup choruses, and the gentle treatise "You Deliver Me," which celebrates a lover's unwavering support in tough times. On the lighter side, "Texas Swing" finds Walker's jaunty vocal buttressed by a heady, rhythmic brew of twin guitars, fiddles, and fleet-fingered piano support. Meanwhile "La Bamba" is one of Walker's finest moments on record, as he honors both Ritchie Valens's rock-'n'-roll standard and the original Mexican folk song with an assured, swinging vocal and a Tex-Mex arrangement that leans heavily on acoustic instruments and horns. Never resting on his laurels, Walker gives it all he's got, and the result is compelling mainstream hard country with a great big heart.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Maria Konicki Dinoia
Of Clay Walker's first six albums, four went platinum and two went gold. Say No More, lucky number seven, seems destined for the same fate. This 11-track collection of inspirational prose about life and love covers everything from dreams to regret to tough times, but the common thread is love. In fact, the sensitivity on this album is so expressive that it makes you want to run right out and hug the one you love. The album's title track is an awesome song about falling out of love. "Could I Ask You Not to Dance" is a formidable song about losing someone you love and regretting it. "You Deliver Me" is a great track about feeling complete with your partner. Walker said, "I haven't ever put this much time or this much heart into an album, not even the first one. There's emotion in every single cut." There sure is. He adds some spice with a remake of Richie Valens' 1959 hit "La Bamba," as well as the pulsating "Texas Swing." Produced by Byron Gallimore, Blake Melvis, and Brent Mason, Say No More is a fine album from an artist who has proved his staying power time and time again.
