The sheer power of Reba McEntire's voice is an awesome thing. But it's the careful way she controls that power that makes SO GOOD TOGETHER a great CD. True, several tracks on the CD are big, pop-flavored production numbers that McEntire belts her way through, like the title track and the Diane Warren power ballad "I'll Be." But SO GOOD TOGETHER also contains some of the most honest-to-goodness country numbers McEntire's recorded in years, and the restraint she shows on those makes the material shine.
Listen to the way she almost whispers the final, tear-jerking chorus of the brilliant "What Do You Say," or the delicate, quiet way she narrates "She Wasn't Good Enough for Him," the story of a woman trapped in a co-dependent relationship. Another standout is "Back Before the War," a good old-fashioned divorce song. And her astonishing performance on "Roses"--a traditional, hard country song about a woman who takes the knowledge of her husband's infidelity to the grave--proves she still remembers her roots. With fine material all around, plus less bombast and more real country, McEntire's hit upon a formula that really does sound SO GOOD TOGETHER.
Entertainment Weekly (11/26/99, p.99) - "...TOGETHER's focus on the heart shows McEntire to still be one of the country's premiere purveyors of emotion." - Rating: B-
