This album is a country standard and the cornerstone of George Strait's career. We all know and love the singles (the title track, "The Cowboy Rides Away," and the irresistible "The Fireman"), but it's the rest of the album that really shines. It's certainly more than "filler." "Any Old Time" is a quick, breezy, fun sing-a-long with playful fiddle and guitar work. "I Need Someone Like Me," "Honky Tonk Saturday Night," "I Should Have Watched That First Step," and "What Did You Expect Me to Do" are toe-tapping honky-tonk numbers; songs you might think you want to skip until you get about ten seconds into them and start singing along. "Love Comes from the Other Side of Town" juxtaposes a light-hearted melody and arrangement with a pretty serious subject, cheating. Kind of like the country version of a punk rock idea, I guess. Regardless, it's too catchy to ignore.
The standout track on this album is the ballad "You're Dancin" This Dance All Wrong," my favorite GS song other than "The Chair." It's a bittersweet love ballad, celebrating a new love and looking back on an old one. Any other singer would have either slaughtered this song or turned it into a gaudy showcase for his voice, but GS's (as always) low-key, human delivery makes this song perfect.
