"Given his reticence, he is still more enigma than a “look at me, look at me, wheeee! How clever can I be…” 21st century superstar; but with the willingness to write his own songs, there’s more a sense of personal truth than ever before. Employing twin fiddles, loping ballads and splashes of piano, Strait has again crafted a collection of classic country: lean, to the point, moving from Cajun to swing, spoken revelations to romantic waltzes. After all these years, he represents all the truest forms of a genre increasingly going the way of poodle metal, bloated AC and glossed pop with steel guitar as camo."
