Editors’ Notes

With just three albums to his name in seven years, Radney Foster made it clear that he had no interest in bowing to Nashville's commercial demands. His standard of quality is apparent on 1999’s See What You Want to See, which reinforces the strapping down-home songwriting of his early albums with a touch of thunderous rock 'n' roll. “I’ve Got a Picture” had all the makings of a hit, but it’s possible the song was too gritty for alternative rock radio and not corny enough for country radio. A current of anger runs through See What You Want to See, and though it could never pass for pop, it's the country fan’s ideal rock album. “Folding Money,” “Angry Heart," and “You Were So Right” are as gutsy and rootsy as any of Steve Earle’s louder works, but with a sharper edge. The visual isn't cowboy boots but combat boots. Like most guys with a streak of rage, Foster can also be awfully romantic, as evidenced by “I’m In” and “The Kiss,” two love songs free of cliché. Meanwhile, “Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" is easily the toughest and most touching children’s lullaby written.

Customer Reviews

greatest music

Truly music for the heart and the mind. I sing Folding Money (which is one of my favorites ever) to my little girl to see her dance and Godspeed when it's night-night time. Foster is one of the best, most respected by his peers, singer songwriters today and not nearly as well known as he should be. And in Texas, his music is considered Texas Country, not adult pop. Really love this guy and all his music.

Great album for someone who is not into country.

I heard the song Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) when I was going thru a divorce. The song really helped me to cope with not seeing my 6 year old son. I bought the album and much to my surprise every song on it was great. I still enjoy listning to it today.

Also not a country music fan. Great album

I bought a tape of this years ago after hearing it at someone else's house & immediately falling in love with it. I usually need to hear music a few times before it resonates with me. Not this beauty.
I recently heard the CD in someone else's car. I finally downloaded the whole album. What a gem. What a beautiful, sexy voice RF has. Favorite song - Godspeed. Killer.
