    New York Times: Critic's Notebook

    LINK TO ARTICLE

    Positive review from New York Times, even touches on Trisha's upcoming release as well.

    His songs arenít about intrigue, they just bleed. And when heís severely wounded, his howl is transfixing. Thatís the case on the album closer, ďTacoma,Ē a slab of unadulterated white-soul fire in the vein of Michael McDonald that scorches everything that came before it:

    Might leave some tears in Topeka

    A couple of sleepless nights in Cheyenne

    Every time that I miss you baby

    Iíll hit the gas as fast as I can.

    This is familiar country structure ó the road song ó but an unleashed Mr. Brooks takes it from Nashville through Memphis and Muscle Shoals and maybe a Birmingham church. He is beholden to no one place or style, an upsetter of norms before, and an upsetter of norms now.

    This critic has some interesting thoughts. I think most of them are pretty spot on! His views on Tacoma reflect mine exactly. What a performance.

    he makes some good point.

    All the reviews have been great so far, NYtimes, usa today, newsday.

    There is always one though, the horrible review in the "nydailynews" This guy cant of listen to the album, because he just rattles off the usual cliches people
    who dont like Garth's music do.

    Its kinda like his review is written by a 12 year old, whos trying to be cool.
