Music Review: 'High Mileage' (1998)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Alan Jackson; Genre: Country

Many performers with marital problems (Jackson recently separated from, then reconciled with, his wife) channel their trauma into memorable art. Jackson's largely autobiographical eighth release, though, is solid but unremarkable. The exception: ''I'll Go On Loving You,'' a recitation and the frankest treatment of lust on country radio, is a colossal embarrassment and a memorable romantic declaration. B
