Album Review

You and You Alone was a pivotal album for Randy Travis and his new label, DreamWorks. For Travis, it was designed to solidify his status as one of Nashville's new elders; for DreamWorks, it would have gotten their foot in the door of the notoriously insular Nashville music establishment. While You and You Alone doesn't quite fulfill either goal, it still is a sturdy record that makes Travis' many talents abundantly clear. It lacks the focus and consistent songwriting of its predecessor, Full Circle, which was his finest record in years, but individual moments shine just as brightly as the best from that album. Furthermore, producers James Stroud and Byron Gallimore (Travis also had a hand in producing) have given the record a clean, appealing sound that accentuates Travis' strengths. There are enough fine songs and good moments — including cameos from Alison Krauss, Melba Montgomery, and Vince Gill — to make this a solid entry in Travis' catalog, but it doesn't have enough flair to make it the big splash DreamWorks desired. Still, the small pleasures are as important as the big ones in Travis' music, and that's what makes You and You Alone a modest success.

One of my favorite records. Love this one

Good Stuff

More good stuff from Randy! What a voice!

Very Good

This is not Randy's best album, but it is still a very good CD. The song "Horse Called Music" is especially interesting and the album also produced some great singles, such as "The Hole" and "Out of My Bones." A few of the songs have a mildly moralistic theme (Spirit of A Boy is about doing the right thing, not the thing that feels good and the Hole is about a man who mistakenly thinks that wealth will give his life meaning) but it never gets too preachy. Overall, a very good CD.

Like the Beatles in rock, Randy Travis marks a generational shift in country music. When his Storms of Life came out in 1986, country music was still wallowing in the post-urban cowboy recession, chasing elusive crossover dreams. Travis brought the music back to its basics, sounding like nothing so much as a perfect blend of George Jones and Merle Haggard. He became the dominant male voice in country until the rise of "hat acts" like Garth Brooks and Clint Black, releasing seven consecutive number...
