CDs by Collin Raye

It wasn't broke, so they didn't fix it. This album is everything you've come to expect from Collin Raye. It's all in there - the huge ballads, the 'message' songs, and that wonderful, smoky tenor voice that make Raye one of the most recognizable artists on country radio. There's not a hair out of place anywhere in the production. Extra credit goes out to background singers Dennis Wilson and Curtis Young whose pristine background harmony is nothing short of perfect. The songs lean toward pop and rock, with the exception of country gems "On the Verge" and "Heart Full of Rain" penned by Hugh Prestwood and "The Time Machine" written by Gary Burr. Don't worry about clunkers. All of the songs are at least equal to or better than its sappy first single "One Boy, One Girl." If you like Raye, it's a safe bet that you'll love this album.
