Charley Pride’s artistic revival continues unabated with the second of three No. 1 singles from Everybody’s Choice.
This is the weakest of the album’s three smash hits, but it’s still an excellent record. Pride’s conversational delivery of the narrative works well, and the Caribbean production elements are a nice touch.
The only element that doesn’t quite work is the overpowering background vocalists, which not only drown Pride out during the chorus, but also make a contemporary record sound a bit dated. Thankfully, the lyric is so strong and Pride’s performance is so solid that the overly loud ladies can’t fully derail an otherwise strong recording.
We’ve got another No. 1 hit on deck from this album, and it’s the best of the three.
“I Don’t Think She’s in Love Anymore” gets a B+.
