      Next to "country", "variety" is probably the best word to describe this album. Brad has opened this disc up with quite a humorous song that many may relate to, called "Long Sermon." This is about being in church but being really, really anxious to get out into the sun out on the lake. Track #2 is about a guy trying to get the girl who keeps shooting him down. It's called "Me Neither." Track 3 is the title track, "Who Needs Pictures." It's about a guy remembering all those special times with his girl and there they are, on that roll of film, but he can still see it all just fine. So, who needs pictures? The next track is "Don't Breathe", a nice little number about how it's no problem to throw away all the memories and just forget about all that's happened except that it's like saying "Don't breathe, don't blink, don't eat, and don't sleep." Track 5 is a very touching song called "He Didn't Have To Be." It's about the relationship between stepdad and stepson, and the son says "I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be." Track #6 is "It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway." This song is about the guy simply trying to get the girl to 'lighten up' and realize that those other relationships never would've worked out even if he hadn't told those other guys a few little lies about her... Track 7, "Holdin' On To You," is about a man who is trying to move on, but he just can't, and "It's hard to hold a conversation, holdin' on to you." The next song is called "I've Been Better." It's about a guy who's got everything going for him, except for having the girl that he misses most. Track 9 is "We Danced", a touching song about a woman who leaves her purse in a bar. When she comes back to retrieve it, she and the bartender find love
      . Track 10 is about a man that went fishing instead of going to see his wife's family, and he lied and said that he had to work. Now he's "Sleepin' On The Foldout." Track #11 is "Cloud Of Dust." This song is about a man who has lost all his crops, but he just doesn't want to give up. So, he keeps "prayin' for rain through a cloud of dust." Track #12 is a very exciting instrumental called "Nervous Breakdown." This song displays Brad Paisley and his band's musical talent. The thirteenth and final track on this disc is "In The Garden", a nice gospel song. Mr. Paisley's second album, Part II, picks up right where this one left off, and I mean literally. The fiddle that fades off at the end of "In The Garden" leads right into the first song on "Part II." I highly recommend this album, as well as the other two Brad Paisley albums, "Part II" and "Mud On The Tires." Young Brad is very talented as a musician, a singer, and a songwriter. He can have you crying on one song, and then turn around and have you laughing on another, and all on the same album.

      • "Not exactly enthralling."

      As a musician, there aren't many who can top his superb guitar pickin'. Even as a singer you can't say he doesn't cut the mustard. The problem I have with Brad is that in striving to maintain his 'traditional country' roots he's simply boring (even George Strait has more life in him!); wasting his awesome talent on songs that have little sparkle and offer nothing to capture the imagination. Ok, Ok, Ok... so there are one or two tracks that are listenable (if only just) - "We Danced" and perhaps the title track "Who Needs Pictures" offer the wary listener some hope if you fancy a slow one at some romance recalling moment in your life, but aside from that I'm afraid there isn't much else. Which is disappointing. For a man who has an incredible reputation despite only being on the secene a relatively short time, you're left feeling somewhat short-changed by this CD. Come on Brad! Pull the finger out and enjoy the music! Oh, and if you're hoping for better in the follow-up CD - "Brad Paisley: Part Two" - sorry, you'll be let down once again!
