proved to be something of a watershed in Patty's career. Though similar in
style to its hugely successful predecessor, Trouble with the truth,
country radio seemed less interested in Patty's music when this album
appeared - Shania had taken over the airwaves. Sure, the album yielded
four country hits, but neither they nor the album matched the success of
Trouble with the truth, although the music is just as good.
The four country hits were You don't seem to miss me (with backing
vocals by George Jones), To have you back again (a fine ballad), High on
love and Like water into wine. Among the other highlights are The party
ain't over yet (an up-tempo song in which Patty expresses a determination
to overcome difficulties), I don't wanna feel like that no more (a sad
song in which Patty decides to end a relationship) and That's exactly what
I mean (written by the brilliant singer-songwriter, Kim Richey).
This is unquestionably a very strong album, but I never expect anything
less from Patty. If you enjoy contemporary country nineties-style, you
will probably enjoy this, although if you are new to Patty's music, I
recommend that you begin with Classics.
