Of course Tanya fans know that she never records a bad song. What she tends to do is to record some killer cuts along with others ranging from good to average (her average songs are still better than most mainstream hits). This album follows that formula, though is much stronger than most of her post-70s work. (I would give it 4.5 stars if possible, but I decided to round up instead of down.) The absolute killer cuts are the opening fiery rocker "Old Weakness (Coming On Strong)" and, on the other side of the spectrum, the gorgeous and tender ballad "I Can Do That" (probably the most heartfelt of all ballads she has recorded, with some beautiful steel guitar hooks). Those are seriously two of the best songs that I have ever heard. They will certainly go down in my book of favorites (whether I ever write one or not!). The weakest track is surprisingly "A Memory Like I'm Gonna Be" (it's suprising because I think that was supposed to be the big single). Tanya really sounds...
I bought this cd after buying 2 concert dvds of Tanya's, which I also recommend. She's a spirited performer with an immense back catalog of great tunes. Good production and vocals, excellent songwriting. She really is the best country singer out there today. Wish she'd play shows in NYC more. "Old Weakness" sounds like a Rolling Stones song and Miss T works it.
