Guide Review - Ronnie Bowman - It's Gettin' Better All The Time

'It's Gettin' Better All The Time' is, quite simply, a wonderful album. It's one that I could listen to for hours on end and still enjoy the songs each time they play. The high quality it there, the tender voice is amazing, and the songs are outstanding. What else can be said for such a wonderful album.

"On My Way Back Home" evokes a feeling of happiness because nothing is better than heading back to your loved ones. "No more running, no more wasting time, I've got a ticket on a one way ride on the next train leaving tonight" Ronnie sings. "Crazy Train" is upbeat, full of fine dobro and banjo pickin', and or course a mandolin sound that can't be beat. Starting with the sound of thunder, "The Mountain" is a song with lyrics full of vivid imagery. The mountain describes the people who surrounded it many years ago. "Build A Little Playhouse" is a cute story about a boy whose mother never worried about him because he and the little girl would always play behind her house. Dan Tyminski provides background vocals.

"Perfect Love," written by Ronnie Bowman and Dan Tyminski, is about a man who loves a woman deeply. He doesn't care where they met because she's the only one for him and they will be together forever. Next is a version of "It's Gettin' Better All The Time." Most know the Brooks & Dunn version but this one is pretty darned good too. Closing the album is the upbeat tune, "Walkin' The Dog." It's another bluegrass gem full of mandolin, fiddle, banjo, dobro, and bass.
