See What You Want to See is American country music artist Radney Foster's third studio album. It was released in 1999 on Arista Records. The record features a number of notable guests, such as Darius Rucker from Hootie & the Blowfish, as well as Abra Moore and Emmylou Harris. Singles from this album were "I'm In" and "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)."

Content[edit]

"Raining on Sunday" was later recorded by Keith Urban on his 2002 album Golden Road, from which it was released as a single in 2003.[1] The Kinleys released a cover of "I'm In" from the 2000 album II, which Foster produced; ten years later, Urban released his version of the same song as a single from the album Defying Gravity.[1] Additionally, the Dixie Chicks released a cover of "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" in 2003.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic rated the album four stars out of five. He called its sound "classy, mature pop music" and thought that "I'm In," "Folding Money" and "Angry Heart" "showcase him at his best as a songwriter while successfully delivering a fresh, updated sound."[2]
