In This Life Review

by Brian Mansfield

The soft-focus yet rugged album art helps establish Collin Raye as the heartthrob his silky smooth tenor makes him out to be. Inside, it's an even smoother mix than All I Can Be, with Raye indulging his tendencies at every turn, including a revival of the Everly Brothers' make-out classic "Let It Be Me." The hit "I Want You Bad (And That Ain't Good)" put some sweat and muscle into Raye's image, but even the trucker song, "Latter Day Cowboy," sounds like it was written for the women back home. The album also includes "In This Life," a number one hit; "Somebody Else's Moon," and "That Was a River."
