Guide Review - Garth Brooks - The Chase
After the opening track, there are quite a few strong songs on the album. Songs like "Somewhere Other Than The Night," which, upon listening to it 13 years after it was released, seems to be written directly from Garth's personal life. "Walking After Midnight" is an ambitious cover of the Patsy Cline masterpiece that works here. "Dixie Chicken" is a fun cover of the Little Feat song, while "Every Now And Then" is a lovely ballad. The biggest hit off of this album is also one of my all-time favorite Garth Brooks songs. "That Summer" is one of those songs that describes summertime love. It's the summer in which the character in the story "became a man."
With 11 stand-out tracks (with the bonus "Something With A Ring To It" added in 1998), The Chase stands out as one of Garth Brooks' finest albums. It is a record well worth checking out.
