Picks and Pans Review: Carrying Your Love with Me

George Strait

After 31 No. 1 singles, 12 platinum albums and seven multiplatinum albums, this 45-year-old country star doesn't take risks. With today's fans tempted by younger flavors-of-the-month, there might be a hazard in being too careful, but Strait keeps reaping million-sellers by serving up the same recipe. This release is business as usual—but a satisfying enterprise it is. The expected mix of bittersweet ballads, soft-swayin' rockers and boot-scootin' twang are all delivered in Strait's easygoing, dependable style. And while country's corporate Svengalis continue to hatch more hatted clones, this good ol' Texas boy proves again that he is one of a kind. (MCA Nashville)
