"On one of the highlights of his new album, Alan Jackson sings that 'The Best Keeps Getting Better.' While he's referring to a relationship that's 'like a 30-year-old wine,' he could also be crowing about his staying power in Nashville in the face of many younger bucks. Indeed, his last album, 2008's Good Time, went platinum and produced three No. 1 country singles. He won't be derailed on Freight Train, another pleasant journey with Jackson exuding an easygoing confidence. Tunes such as the wistful 'Every Now and Then' play well to his strenghts, displaying the power of keeping it simple" (Chuck Arnold, "Music," People, 4/12/10, p. 49).
