ALBUM REVIEW: Jason Allen - The Twilight Zone

If real country music is what you want, then Jason Allen offers it up by the bucket load in his new album "The Twilight Zone."One of the unlikely standouts on the album is a cover of Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You." Amazingly, Jason Allen makes the R&B track sound like a traditional country classic by crafting a smooth vocal performance combined with great country musicianship from the band.
It is Jason Allen's pure country voice that makes him shine brighter as a country star than many of his contemporaries. Allen never struggles to hit the right note and his vocals never seem strained. It's like Allen is channeling the voice of George Strait from the 1980s or early 1990s.

One other major success on the album is the track "He's Still Dancing With Her" which Allen wrote after watching his father on the dance floor. It's a touching and genuine song that pays tribute to the successful partnership that heavily influenced the life of this singer-songwriter.

Jason Allen and his band have produced a traditional country album in "The Twilight Zone" that is relevant in today's market while still having timeless qualities that will make it a popular album for many years to come.
