Retro Single Review: Tim McGraw, “Maybe We Should Just Sleep On It”


November 30, 2011

1996 | Peak: #4

A sound sentiment stuffed in a sound-impaired package.

The generic “moody” 90′s production does some of the damage, as does a patchwork melody that can’t seem to connect its phrases. But you can also  hear McGraw still ironing out his vocal technique, as his likably nervous tremor in the verses meets a series of clumsy trills and some pitchy “baby”s and “maybe”s.

That great title sentiment shines bright, though, almost overcoming the facelessness of the story and the aforementioned sonic issues. Just not quite.

Written by Jerry Laseter and Kerry Kurt Phillips

Grade: C
