Album Review

Patty Loveless expanded on the success of her comeback album, Only What I Feel, on its successor, When Fallen Angels Fly, which made the country Top Ten, went gold, spawned four Top Ten singles, and was named the Country Music Association's Album of the Year. Songs like the feisty hit "Halfway Down" had a bouncy rockabilly feel, and Loveless rode the rhythms well, while on the ballad "Here I Am," another hit, she sounded like a country Stevie Nicks. And then there was "I Try To Think About Elvis," a comic rocker that was one of the best pieces of material to turn up in Nashville that year, and that Loveless performed with just enough tongue in her cheek. Of course, there were a couple of those hopelessly hokey Gretchen Peters ballads, but even one of those, "You Don't Even Know Who I Am," was a hit.

Customer Reviews

A fantastic work of art that won the rare "triple" in 1996

The itunes review does not really do this album justice. The year of it's release, Patty won the very, very rare 'triple' play (the first solo female to ever win this): Best Country Album, Album of the year, and female vocalist of the year. I love this album. The song "Here I Am" is my all time favorite song, and it is the most played song on my iTunes library...number one out of over 4,000 songs. Her voice is at the top of it's form here, and there is not one song that I fast forward over. Best country album of the 1990s, bar none.

a classic

one of the best country music albums of all time, by one of the best artists of all time.

One of the most popular female singers of the new traditionalist movement, Patty Loveless rose to stardom thanks to her blend of honky tonk and country-rock, not to mention a plaintive, emotional ballad style. Her late-'80s records for MCA were generally quite popular, earning her comparisons to Patsy Cline, but most critics agreed that she truly came into her own as an artist when she moved to Epic in the early '90s. Loveless was born Patricia Lee Ramey in Pikeville, KY, in 1957 and spent most...
