Since George only released two singles from this album, it was not a big seller, which for George translates to "only" being platinum. Those two singles, however, are classic Strait. Nobody in His Right Mind and It Ain't Cool have George in full-fledged crooner mode, belting out a smoothly textured rendition of the two ballads. Nice lyrics on Cool with "suave and debonair".
It is a shame that other songs on the album did not get much exposure. However, I'm Never Gonna has gotten work as a nice dancehall waltz. People looking for dirt can also hear the notorious potty-mouth and bad-boy Strait utter the word "breast". Parental guidance is suggested (smirk).
Strait once again pays homage to one of his influences with a dead on cover of Bob Wills' Deep Water. Stranger Things Have Happened shows great wit, and how clever a song writer can be at altering the meaning of a common phrase. Why'd You Go And Break and My Old Flame continue his impeccable track record with traditional country honky tonk sound.
Misses include Rhythm Of The Road, which is a little too frenetic and all over the map, and You Still Get, which is a love song that is too low-key and without a lot of impact.
