Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye

Country music's balladeer nonpareil is at the top of his game on LET'S MAKE SURE WE KISS GOODBYE, especially on a beautiful duet with Amy Grant, who became Mrs. Vince Gill in March 2000. On "When I Look Into Your Heart," Gill and Grant eschew bombast, preferring to make their point with a seductive, bluesy approach -- midnight love kind of stuff. Sexy, silky background vocals cuddle their mutual testimonials, and a tasty guitar solo from Gill underscores the track's romantic tension. On all counts, LET'S MAKE SURE WE KISS GOODBYE is Vince Gill's most consistent LP in some time, a genuine return to the form that led many to believe he would out-Garth Garth back in the early '90s. Writing or cowriting every song on the album, Gill avoids mushy Hallmark-card sentiments, favoring an introspective celebration of his new-found love. He's in fine voice throughout, but the quieter numbers, as always, bring out the best in his warm, comforting tenor. Gill's finest hour arrives with the last song, "Hey God." Gill beseeches the Almighty for understanding in the wake of the death of a close friend, golfer Payne Stewart, in a plane crash last year. While unexpected, this stark, contemplative closing is perfect given the album's measured theme of treasuring and acknowledging one's blessings before it's too late. It leaves you thinking, and that's probably what Vince had in mind. Hey, job well done. David McGee

I really love this CD. My favorite song is ''Feels like Love''. I like it because it is the perfect description of when you know that you have found true love. Even though I haven't found my true love, this song reminds me that my heart will be happy once I findit.
