“From the beginning of his public career in 1981, George Strait’s superpower has been to make country feel like everybody’s music. Strait was a star before Ocean Front Property, but this album pushed him to a new level of success. The greatest compliment you can give him is that he never changed before or after he became a multi-Platinum institution. He is synonymous with Nashville hit-making but remains as closely associated with Texas as Flaco Jiménez or ZZ Top.”
