AllMusic Review by

In addition to "The Cold Hard Facts of Life," a tale of adultery and murder that reached number two on the C&W charts, The Silent Kind includes a few notable tracks, including "One More Dime" and a version of Bill Monroe's "Uncle Pen." The remainder of this brief album is heavy on recitations, which slow things down considerably. For fans and completists, The Silent Kind has its modest charms; for others, its rewards may be too slight.
