Brett James is the self-titled debut album of American country music singer-songwriter Brett James. It was released on September 12, 1995 via Arista Nashville's Career Records division. The singles "Female Bonding", "If I Could See Love" and "Worth the Fall" all entered the Hot Country Songs charts.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

An uncredited review from Allmusic gave Brett James three stars out of five, calling it "a hard-rocking set of original songs that owe a great debt to honky tonk and traditional country."[2] Richard McVey II of Country Standard Time described the album as "pretty much your standard country record with average material and average vocals that leads to an average review of an average artist."[3]
