Album Review

Wine Colored Roses is cut from the same cloth as Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes, but it has a distinctly different feel. Billy Sherrill has peeled back some of the slicker, poppier elements of his '80s productions — these still surface toward the end of the LP, with "If Only Your Eyes Could Lie" easing along like a country crossover Alabama could have sung, and synths sprucing up "These Old Eyes Have Seen It All" — leaving the album feeling a bit purer than its predecessor. It is by no means sprightly, with only the novelty "The Very Best of Me" boasting a tempo approaching a trot, but this is a comfortable setting for George and he sings expertly, his surroundings never masking his gossamer phrases.
