Diamond Rio's seventh album was delayed for months due to record company politics, and underwent a name change in the process--from STUFF to ONE MORE DAY. The new title's a better fit, since this fine collection is much more than a bunch of "stuff." Once again, the six-man band shows its prodigious talent, tackling an impressive range of musical styles with an unmatched level of musicianship. With neck-snapping versatility, the band moves from bluegrass ("Hearts Against the Wind") to a Mavericks-style surf groove ("I Think I Love You"); from humor ("Stuff") to heartbreak ("'Til the Heartaches Gone.").
The title track is a gem of a tearjerker that recalls the group's 1998 smash "You're Gone," while on "Here I Go Falling," vocalist Marty Roe manages to make that corniest of country conventions--a recitation--sound completely natural. But the true standout is a duet with Chely Wright, "I'm Trying," which paints a vivid portrait of a couple torn apart by alcoholism. Give Diamond Rio credit for tackling a once-standard country topic that practically became taboo in the late '90s, and extra credit for adding Wright to the mix. Whatever you call it, ONE MORE DAY is good stuff.
