Album Review

John Michael Montgomery's fourth album, What I Do the Best, doesn't tamper with his hitmaking blueprint at all. Essentially, it follows the same pattern as its three predecessor, relying equally on heart-tugging ballads and clean, up-tempo neo-honky tonk and country-rock. Occasionally, the material is below par and Montgomery's delivery doesn't quite save the weaker songs, yet the best moments of What I Do the Best are among his greatest, blending well-written songs with crisp production and assured singing.
