|Neal McCoy chronology|
No Doubt About It is the third studio album by American country music artist Neal McCoy. Released in 1994, it is considered his breakthrough album, and has been certified platinum in the United States. Both the album's title track and "Wink" reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, the latter holding its peak position for four weeks. The album's third single, "The City Put the Country Back in Me", was also a Top 5 hit.
In New Country magazine, Brian Mansfield referred to the lyrics of other songs as "rang[ing] from the simple-minded to the genuinely embarrassing" and gave the album two stars out of five. He was more positive in his review for Allmusic, giving it four-and-a-half stars and saying that it "was the first to capture the rock-influenced sound of McCoy's stage show."
Alanna Nash of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a C- rating, criticizing the title track in particular: "If radio thinks this blander-than-generic ballad (off this equally snooze-inducing album) is the future of country, we might as well just move to the middle of the road right now."
