  • Kenny Rogers may be the grand old man of country pop, but in the mid-1990s, he fell off the mainstream/major-label radar. He didn't stop making music, but his records didn't make the same big footprint anymore. Newly signed to Capitol, his "comeback" bid, WATER & BRIDGES, is a tasteful, mature outing. Full of wistful longing, it finds a 68-year-old Rogers in contemplative mode, inhabiting characters that look back on their bittersweet pasts with a mixture of regret and sanguinity.
  • There are no good-time romps a la "The Gambler," and no "Islands in the Stream"-like mega-pop productions, but WATER & BRIDGES is still a far cry from the starkness of Johnny Cash's latter-day outings. Those who've been enchanted in the past by Rogers's mellow, Nashville-meets-L.A. ballad style will find firm footing here. At the same time, the depth of the emotional content, and the obvious seriousness with which Rogers approached the making of the record, may endear him to those who dismissed his best-known songs as pop trifles. Not a reinvention, then, but a firm step forward, surprisingly late in the game, for this veteran balladeer.
