As always, one of the most impressive things about Jackson is that he never seems forced -- he always sounds relaxed and natural, especially on the lazy Western swing of the opener, "Right on the Money," which starts the album off on an appropriately unhurried note. This is a mood that Jackson sustains throughout High Mileage, which is by far the most relaxed album he's made to this point, with even the livelier numbers -- such as the skipping Bakersfield redux of "Another Good Reason," a particularly funny drinking song -- being a little bit subdued, carrying some of the mellow vibe of this ballad-heavy album. This may be long on slow tunes and laid-back melodies, but that doesn't make High Mileage dull. There's a certain level of introspection to the songs, a meditative quality, that gives the album depth, but the songs (half of which are originals) are strong and Jackson's delivery, as ever, is warm and compelling, making High Mileage a startling, rewarding departure from his previous records and proof of his depth as an artist. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, RoviRead Less
