Profile The group’s best album of the 1980s (and one of the best country albums of that decade). The mix of sounds is strange, since the band seems to “devolve” in harmonies and sophistication, as well as originality. Any LP with “Hang on to Your Heart” on it is worth owning. The sound is excellent, and the annotation is thorough. “Hang On to Your Heart” was released in July 1985 as the first single and was Exile’s sixth number one country hit. The single went to number one for one week and spent a total of fifteen weeks on the country chart. There’s not a weak cut, or even a flaccid moment on these ten cuts — four of the songs here were number one hits, but anything here could have been in their place. The songs run the gamut from “She Likes Her Lovin’,” a delightfully libidinous look at love from the distaff side, to “Hang on to Your Heart,” one of the most achingly romantic songs of its era. Side two rocks a little harder than side one, but all of it is very well played and sung even better.

Producer Buddy Killen

the mix of soaring harmonies, long, lyrical melodic lines, acoustic-textured production, and killer hooks on this record make it an extraordinary listening experience. This is where country music melds with soul — not blue-eyed soul of the Righteous Brothers’ or the Actions variety, but where white country singers find that depth and sincerity, in country music, that one associates with soul music. Theres not a weak cut, or even a flaccid moment on these ten cuts — four of the songs here were number one hits, but anything here could have been in their place. The songs run the gamut from “She Likes Her Lovin’,” a delightfully libidinous look at love from the distaff side, to “Hang on to Your Heart,” one of the most achingly romantic songs of its era. Side two rocks a little harder than side one, but all of it is very well played and sung even better.
