Precious Memories

Ten studio albums into his career, Alan Jackson takes a bit of a breather with 2006's Precious Memories, his first ever gospel album. Not coincidentally, it's his quietest record to date, as hushed and reverent as a Sunday service, with each track boasting little more than a piano, acoustic guitar, harmony vocals, and maybe an organ. There may not be much musical variety to these spare, intimate arrangements, but they suit this set of sturdy traditional gospel classics, and they also suit Jackson, who always has been eager to pay respect to his idols and influences. On most of his albums, this reverence doesn't sound overly reverent since he does sing loose, rocking honky tonk and indulges in a sense of humor, two things that help illustrate his good taste. Here, every song is deliberately calm and consciously tasteful, which may make for perfect music for church, but hardly makes for a dynamic record. As the album rolls on, the similarity in tempo and arrangements gives the album a monotonous, sleepy quality; each individual track is well crafted and sincere, but taken as a whole, it all blurs together and winds up seeming twice as long as its 37 minutes. But even if Precious Memories winds up as something slightly underwhelming, there's no denying that this is precisely the album Jackson wanted to make, one that's consistent in tone and exact in its vision. It may not make for everyday listening, even an album that would be played every week, yet it would make a good soundtrack for a reflective, reverent Sunday afternoon. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Alan Jackson - Perfection

When this CD first came out I had my doubts about even getting it. As much as I love Alan Jackson's music I wasn't sure he could pull off a gospel album. Boy was I ever WRONG. This CD touched my heart and I wasn't expecting that. This is actually my second copy of the CD, I gave the first one to my mother. Alan has hit perfection with this CD.

Like all Alan Jackson's cd's this will not disappoint the buyer. It is however, different than what he usually does. But it's a super cd just the same!

I bought and sent this CD to my 85 year old mother who had heard bits of it on a Sunday morning TV show. She loved the old time Gospel numbers and she loves Alan Jackson but she had not been able to find the CD locally. I went on line, ordered it, and my mother plays it at home and takes it with her in her car when she goes anywhere. She just dearly loves it. A very great gift!

Bought this as a gift. Was very worried it would be scratched and would skip since it was loose in it's CD case. I had never seen a CD loose and moving around in it's case before. My friend has listened to the CD and loves it...didn't report any skipping or interruptions in the music. I hate to have to return things...I lucked out this time.
