Disappointing lack of effort, April 3, 2007
Reviewer: DaveCody (Philadelphia) - See all my reviews
Let me say first... I am a great Vince Gill fan. However, this collection of tunes is in no way up to the high standards that he has set for himself throughout his career. Upon listening to this entire collection, I actually skipped through most of the songs after listening to the first 30 seconds or so, and even at that, I only remember 5-6 of the 40 or so songs in the collection. It seems like Vince went into the studio with his buddies, and really no plan, and just started recording takes. Then, they all sat around and said...hmmm... we don't really feel like putting in the time to cull this down to an actual 10-12 track album...so lets create some marketing hype and release them ALL in a collection.... sounds like a great idea... one problem... most of the songs are at best forgettable, and at worst pedantic, produced poorly, and hard to finish listening to. I am very disappointed in this sub-par effort, having been treated to Mr. Gill's high standards for years.
