Overview

Tip your Stetsons to Alan Jackson. On his second volume of hits, he offers not only a generous 18-cut sampling of gems from 1996 through 2003 but also two outstanding new songs -- plus a limited-edition bonus disc featuring eight album tracks Jackson selected for inclusion here. The fully up-to-snuff new songs are a buoyant, tropical-flavored salute to the onset of happy hour, "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" (featuring Jimmy Buffett cracking wise), and a touching, acoustic-flavored ballad, "Remember When," reflecting on a love that grows deeper through good times and bad, its thoughtful sentiments caressed by the gentlest of string arrangements. Preceding the new tunes is memorable fare such as the whimsical, singsong "Little Bitty"; the monumental 9/11 treatise "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)"; the sensuous, atmospheric love song "I'll Go On Loving You"; the bopping cover of "Pop-A-Top"; and the rustic, exuberant reminiscence of a young boy's bond with his father, "Drive." The bonus disc offers the usual gamut of tradition-rooted country styles Jackson is known for, including "Job Description," a low-key, honky-tonk–style trucker's tale; a toe-tapping workout celebrating living and loving anew, "Let's Get Back to Me and You"; an acoustic-driven lament over lost love, "Hole in the Wall"; and a classically styled country-and-western testimonial, "When Love Comes Around," about making good in the romance department. These eight songs are so good, someone's gonna accuse Jackson of trying to run up the score on his outclassed opponents. Go for it, Alan.
