℗ 2007 E & S Records
Sara Evans (The Early Years) Tracklist:
This is pretty sad. its musik she did in the 90s and its realesed in 2007???? Im sorry but country musik has changed a lot for the better since the 90s these songs are all dead and have nothing compelling about them at all. I am a big fan of sara evons but she needs to leave these songs where they belong in the past.
While I'll agree that this album is a must for any fan, many of the songs lack the heart and soul that you hear in her later titles. The songs are lyrically strong, and her vocals help to support them, but they leave you feeling a little hollow, and wondering if she really means what she's singing.
When I saw this listed under Sara's music, I was excited, I thought it would be a step back to her early sound which I loved deeply. Instead, I found soul less music, and a voice still trying to find itself. Mind you Sara is a favorite of mine, I listened several times to this album, but just kept feeling empty. While this is a good completist album, I'd recommened Three Cords & The Truth if you are interested in early Sara.
