"Pass It On Down"
Alabama returns to the WSVNRadio website with their 1990 release,
Pass It On Down. As the 1990s were approraching, Alabama may have
had their peak popularity in the late 1980s, but they proved they could
remain as popular in the newest decade. Alabama's music is true-defined
as Country, even though as the Nineties came to a close, Country music
had a more pop and rock sound.
Speaking of which, there are songs that do have the pop/rock meets
Country sound -- "Here We Are" and "Fire On Fire." "Until It
Happens To You" has a more Rock sound, as in the later years of .38
Special. "Gulf Of Mexico" cound be compared to the Pop sound of
As for traditional Country, there are songs that still makes Alabama
one of Country Music's most popular acts. The title track and "Down Home"
are two songs continuing in the entertaining Country sound Alabama is most
fanous for: It sounds Country; not Pop, not Rock -- pure Country. Also to
mention is their #1 Country tune "Jukebox In My Mind" -- somehow the
melody of George Strait's "All My Ex's Live In Texas" seems to be a
comparison while listening to "Jukebox In My Mind." And continuing in
the true-grit Alabama Country sound, is another "no Pop, no Rock, just Country"
tune -- "Moonlight Lounge."
Another reason why Alabama is so popular, are their ballads. There are
three of them here, and they are all Classic Country: "Forever's As Far As
I'll Go", "Goodbye (Kelly's Song)," and "Starting Tonight."
The closing tune is a bit more bluesy -- "I Ain't Got No Business Doin'
Business Today" can be compared to The Judds and/or the solo works of
All in all, it's Alabama Country, and no doubt about it, Alabama does have
great music for any Country fan to enjoy. Pass It On Down to yourself,
that this album is entertaining and enjoyable.
