Considering the chart life of "Let It Rain," the pre-release single from David Nail's sophomore album The Sound of a Million Dreams, it's curious to note that it's not the best song here. Co-produced by Chuck Ainlay and Frank Liddell, the album's sound feels more "live"; it's easy to hear these songs as concert entries. Nail wrote or co-wrote three tracks here, including the single, but it's the other cuts that have more impact -- at least musically.

Nail is on a well-trod path working country music’s adult contemporary pop vein.
