Album Review

Inside is arguably the strongest album Ronnie Milsap released at the peak of his slick contemporary country hit-making streak. The key to the album is that its consistency is married to a thoroughly appealing production equal parts Nashville and Californian soft rock. Make no mistake, this is glossy, slick music, but that's its charm — the surface is seductively slick, giving Milsap's warm baritone a sympathetic musical bed. Though he does dip outside of adult contemporary-oriented country-pop on "I Love New Orleans Music," this truly soars when its feet are planted firmly in the mainstream and he has melodic tales of heartbreak, whether it's on the hits "Any Day Now" and "He Got You" or album tracks like "Hate the Lies - Love the Liar" or "It's Just a Room." These are corny and slick, but they work thanks to their production and Milsap's performances. He had a number of number one singles and albums, but few were better than Inside.

Customer Reviews

Nice easy country from Ronnie

This album is my favorite of Ronnie Milsap's pre-2000 studio albums. It's got some great writing, and the album is a great example of country crossover in the early 1980's, of which Ronnie was one of several. Kenny Rogers was probably the most successful pop-wise, but Ronnie was successful in his own right, with 40 number 1's on the Country chart.

"Inside" is among the most consistent of Ronnie's albums. There is a nice, easy flavor to all the tracks, including his upbeat 'I Love New Orleans Music' (he sounds a little like Elton John on that track). My favorite is 'Carolina Dreams' (it was a B-side but would have made a great A-side). I love the sweeping strings in the middle part.

On the Billboard Pop singles chart, 'Any Day Now' reached number 14. On the Adult Contemporary chart he had more success with the track reaching number 1, and his other singles charting higher than the pop charts. All three singles -- 'Any Day Now', 'Inside', and 'He Got You' -- peaked at #1 on the Country chart.

All in all, a highly recommended album from Ronnie. I have the CD (out of print), and I'm glad to see this selection on iTunes. Now if we could get his other albums on iTunes. That would be great.

Wow!

I am cherry picking this album for now....I have it on cd...it is loaded with amazing tracks, some of which never made it to radio. "Hate the lies" and "Carolina Dreams" are faves for me. "who's counting" is amazing!
