Just when you thought us mortals were about to kill ourselves over the so-called country music of the late 80's, early 90's, the gods looked down on us and blessed us with Alan Jackson. Jackson's "Here In The Real World" wass a perfect neo-traditionalist album that told Nashville that you could still write good ol' country music and survive as a commercial entity. Jackson seems to be a man who knows his country music history, and isn't ashamed to show it. "Chasin' that Neon Rainbow" stands out above the rest of this album. It's a testament to what really making country music is all about. "Wanted" ranks high as well. You want to feel sorry for the guy when he sings it. "Here in the Real World" tugs at the heartstrings. "Dog River Blues" is another fine tune on this album. If you want to restore your faith in country music, please take a chance on this album.
