Time Is Love-Josh Turner (MCA)

This Josh always feels a bit like a new-age Randy Travis to me; that resonance, that smoothness. He sounds real good here, again, but the outstanding feature is the arrangement. I’ve always been a sucker for a cool intro and this’s got one. And there’s the steady, thumpin’ beat and chugs like Casey Jones on rails. Then, toward the end comes the riffin’ mandolin. Start to finish, a fine piece of work.
