Critics' Reviews

Boston Globe: 

The sincere, average-Joe appeal of Just Who I Am--the whole to which Chesney's various personas add up--will likely resonate with fans in the back row of the stadiums he favors, long after all of the records slide down the charts.

The New York Times: 

Mr. Chesney's new album, which is being released today and has one of the worst titles he has ever come up with, along with some of the best music.

Billboard: 

Chesney gets better with age. There are radio hits here: 'Never Wanted Nothing More' has already hit No. 1 and second single 'Don't Blink' is off to a fast start, but there's depth, too.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: 

While the lyrics are engaging (and, yes, emotionally honest), it's not like Chesney's fiddling around with some alt-country concept album here. The usual bulletproof, radio-friendly production remains fully intact.

PopMatters: 

This is just a really good country music collection, with a nearly flawless first half.
