    "It's Your Call"

    Reba McEntire returns this week on the WSVNRadio website, with her 1992 release, It's Your Call. McEntire has been one of the most popular country singers of the 1980s/early 1990s. And, in listening to her music, it definitely defines the country sound, where in the next decade, it turned into more of a pop/rock sound with just a small mix from the original country.

    The title track, likewise "Straight From You" are truly amazing country ballads; the instrumentation on "It's Your Call" is worth checking out. On "Straight From You," it can be an easy radio favorite for the true Reba/Country fan.

    "Take It Back" has a cool blues/country sound, another song worth listening to. "Baby's Gone Blues" is more of a moodier ballad, yet it still has the standard Country sound. "The Heart Won't Lie" has a more patriotic, energetic feel."One Last Good Hand" does have an almost pop meets country sound, with Reba's country sounding voice, she has a resemblance to Dolly Parton.

    The remaining songs: "He Wants To Get Married," "For Herself," "Will He Ever Go Away," and "Lighter Shade Of Blue" are very powerful Country ballads, and are very enjoyable listening tunes for the ears.

    "It's Your Call" features the 1980s Country sound, where the many ballads are the true standouts on this very well-done album. It's clear that McEntire's voice and her sound is definitely Country. It's Your Call is a very relaxing Country album, and it should be any Country fan's call, to say it is a very fine album.
