There are many reasons this album is one of the truly greats: Marty's song writing; his choice of other western songs;the backup singers; the first rate production; Marty's incredible voice; the fact that it was probably the first concept album. What makes it above others with many impressive qualities is the guitar playing of Grady Martin. For my money he should be considered right there with Clapton, Hendrix, and hte ones Rolling Stone thinks are so great.

There are some excellent and enjoyable songs on this album. There's nothing wrong with them individually but across a whole album it all gets a bit samey. It may be a little conservative for some tastes, at least in it's delivery, but the songs are great, there's a John Ford movie in every one.

Less is more. That's what makes this album the greatest. It proves that when all other supposedly transcendent and revolutionary music gets old, and you just want to relax and enjoy some good and simple music, this album never fails to be uplifting.

Ah back when country music had some class. Songs about something other than the pap crap that passes for country today. A classic and classy record in every sense of the word.

I blame playing Fallout Vegas, but somehow this album connected with me when normally I think from a musical standpoint I wouldn't have liked it.

I also grew up with a "real" cowboy... his name was Boot Johnson and he used to jump trains and hurdle cattle from Texas to Montana. He owned his own ranch (he was like 80 when I was 10), and we'd keep our horses there, and I'd chase his peacocks and rabbits.

Best cowboy-country album of all time. The storytelling here is superb.

This album, while not bad, is quite a bit too "nice" sounding to have any impact today. The hit singles Big Iron and El Paso are good traditional pop-country songs, but all that is to be found on the album is nice, wholesome, family friendly little melodies that leave little left when the record stops spinning.
