Review: Tim McGraw, “Suspicions”

Holy early eighties, Batman.   Tim McGraw revives a smooth ballad from the catalog of Urban Cowboy deity Eddie Rabbitt with satisfying results.  It’s not exactly difficult to imagine McGraw suspecting that every guy in the room wants to steal the woman on his arm, and his vocal performance oozes with insecurity.    The arrangement is true to the original, so it can’t help sounding a bit dated, but it’s charming in a very retro way.

Grade: B+

    It’s not my favorite Tim McGraw, but I can’t complain. It’s different, interesting, and his vocals aren’t dull.

    I like it pretty good! So much better than that Like a Bird I Sing….I couldn’t think of the right name. I really like the song Suspicion.

    For me “Suspicions” is the best song after Last Dollar on Let it Go , the lyrics are touching when he cry “Ain’t Nobidy Gonna Take Uou Away from Me” that’s makes me crying!
    Tim is the Best Country Male Vocalist in these last 10 years and noody gonna take that away from him GOD bless you Tim and bless the Country Music!!
