"Thinkin' About You"
Trisha Yearwood's 1994 release, Thinkin' About You is Country.
Most releases past late-1980s to present features Country Music with a more
pop/rock feel. Yet, Yearwood's release for this week's review proves that
Country has a unique sound, and in listening to it, you can easily determine
the style of music: COUNTRY.
Sure, there are some Country tunes on this release that have a somewhat
Pop feel, yet it's easily defined as Country Music. Two songs that received
heavy radio airplay on Country Music format stations were the title track, and
(my personal favorite) "XXX's And OOO's (An American Girl)."
Some may call these songs as Pop Country: "Fairytale" has a catchy
pop feel, "Those Words We Said" is definitely a song worth listening to,
having a sound that could be found by such artists as John Hiatt or even Melissa
Etheridge. Shania Twain fans will like "I Wanna Go Too Far," another
catchy pop feel tune. Overall, these "pop" sounding sounds have the country
Typical Country, having the standard instruments such as the steel guitar
and violins, "The Restless Kind" is definitely Country; it's compared to
such typical country artists as Alan Jackson and Dwight Yolkam.
And we can't forget the country ballads: Melissa Etheridge wrote "You
Can Sleep While I Drive," a nice slow ballad, done in a nice country ballad
style. The lyrics are a bit sad (typical of Country lyrics) in "On A Bus To
St. Cloud," yet it is a beautiful tune. "O Mexico" does have a pop
ballad feel, yet, like the rest of the songs on this album, it is Country.
The album's closing tune is also a beautiful ballad, "Till I Get It Right,"
having an Anne Murray Country style. The instrumentation is classic, and is
another tune worth listening to.
Thinkin' About You is an excellent Country album. It features great
instrumentation used in Country music; the steel guitar, violins, and piano.
Yet the "pop" songs have a more Country sound, this album should easily get
die-hard Country music fans enjoying this album, and can truly say, "Yes, this
album is definitely COUNTRY."
