Biography

"I knew it would take time to build an album in a different way," he says of the nearly two years he spent developing the new sound. "The stars aligned and it was the right time to experiment, have things not work and still be able to try again. I was ready for that journey. I didn't want to think in terms of any limitations on the songs—just honor the song and let ... Read more in Amazon's Keith Urban Store

Product Description

BE HERE shifts Keith Urban's career into a higher gear! This country music superstar has already had success with a double platinum-selling GOLDEN ROAD & his platinum-selling debut, KEITH URBAN, BE HERE is showing every indication of following the same path.

Amazon.com

Australian-born Keith Urban, hot off the double-platinum success of his 2002 sophomore album, Golden Road, is kind of like contemporary country's Tom Cruise. The kid is just so unjustly talented, likeable, and good-looking that it's hard not to hate him. But such jealousy is apt to melt into begrudging admiration and affection after a quick listen to this third album. True, some of Urban's self-penned adolescent love laments and bright-eyed paeans to life in the slow lane do sound a bit callow and derivative. But, with his resolute tenor and his dazzling lead guitar work, he breathes real pain and passion into moving confessionals like Matraca Berg's "Nobody Drinks Alone," "Tonight I Wanna Cry" (a heart-rending ballad co-written by Urban), and a gentle Rodney Crowell gem called "Memories of Us." --Bob Allen

Customer Reviews

I highly recommend this CD to any Keith Urban or country music fan.

Songs like "Nobody Drinks Alone" and "Tonight I Wanna Cry" will make you think and "Days Go By" will make you want to dance.

BE HERE is not the best album you've ever heard, but it's a good one.

Keith Urban really cuts loose on this album, he co-produced to make sure the fans hear it just as he intended and it is SO diverse and shows his mad skills. From the simple pickin' on "Country Comfort" and "God's Been Good to Me" to the upbeat, odes to women "You're My Better Half" and "I Could Fly". The guitar is prominent on "Days Go By" and "Live to Love Another Day", he is definitely a happy guy. He is at his most soulful on "Tonight I Wanna Cry" and the dark "Nobody Drinks Alone", that song gave me chills the first time I heard it, I had to immediately play it again. "Making Memories of Us" is destined to be a big hit, it is from the heart and the lyrics are so sweet. This CD is hot from front to back and sideways, it should make everyone's top ten lists for 2004.

Keith Urban's self-titled debut was pretty much a pop album. On his second record, GOLDEN ROAD, he brought in a heaping helping of rock n roll. He does that again on his third album, and has never sounded better!

Part of the album's success lies in Urban's voice. While not the world's greatest singer by any means, he has figured out how to bring the song to life, as he does on Rodney Crowell's "Making Memories of Us"--making this cliched song one of the best you've ever heard. And then there's "Nobody Drinks Alone", a powerful ballad of overcoming dispair. And he looks back at his mistakes on "She's Gotta Be," while looking ahead on "Days Go By." And the powerful "Tonight I Wanna Cry" is counter-balanced by the light and frisky "Live to Love Another Day."

The album makes its point at the end--coming full circle, in a two-and-a-half minute version of "Days Go By," retitled (with a few additional lyrics) "These Are the Days". BE HERE is not the best album you've ever heard, but it's a good one. It's an album that manages to combine country, pop, and rock n roll into one smooth, rocking sound. Keith Urban has talent in spades, and he knows how to use it. He's a genuine artist: a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist. BE HERE displays all his talents in earnest.

This is one of the best CD's for this year. I am a fan of Keith Urban, and he keeps getting better. One this CD "You're My Better Half" is an amazing song. I love it. I think that he is starting to find himself musically. He is wonderful in person, if you can see him this summer I suggest it! The man is not only a nice person, but he can really play the guitar. Amazing. "Days Go By" is an amazing way to start the album. This is a really high tempo song that gets you singing right from the 1st song and carries you till the end!

I hate country and don't really listen too it, but because it's the only music my wife listens to I hear every country song that's out there. Well, about a year ago a song caught my eye. It was "Days Go By". I thought the song sounded a little rock-ish and was a pretty damn cool song. Urban had a nice voice; So, when she bought this CD, I checked it out. Well, Urban does have a cool voice and a lot of charisma; His songwriting skills kind of suck but with standout tracks like "Days Go By" & "Better Life" & "You're My Better Half", you can't really go wrong. Here's all the tracks:

1. Days Go By-5/5-The song is pretty catchy. This is the song which got me into Keith Urban.

2. Better Life-5/5-My favorite Keith Urban song. The chorus is great.

3. Making Memories of Us-3/5-Slow, stereotypical country song.

4. God's Been Good to Me-4/5-This song's ok.

5. The Hard Way-3/5-Not my favorite. Really slow, just...No.

6. You're My Better Half-5/5-Great song. Perfect for your country-loving sweetheart.

7. I Could Fly-5/5-This song is pretty good. I thought the title sounded stupid, but the song itself is good.

8. Tonight I Wanna Cry-5/5-This song is pretty good, despite the sappy lyrics.

9. She's Gotta Be-5/5-Sounds a bit rock-ish.

10. Nobody Drinks Alone-3/5-I do.

11. Country Comfort-3/5-Here's where Urban falls into the stereotype.

12. Live to Love Another Day-5/5-This songs pretty catchy but sounds really simalar to a lot of other country songs.

13. These are the Days-3/5-Stupid. Starts off as one song and then is suddenly the end of "Days Go By".

B+

Don't let this CD's position in the country bins fool you, Keith Urban's third solo outing Be Here will be a cross genre hit. Equipped with an arsenal of stringed instruments (acoustic, electric, slide and 12-string guitars, mandolin and banjo), Urban shines as a multi-talented artist. He's a true vocalist, punctuating his songs with hums and coos that add a distinctive flavor to his work.

The Billboard number one track "Days Go By" starts the CD off with a bang. The positive theme is continued through most of the songs, reflecting the life and faith of a man who has battled his demons and kept them at bay. Urban attests to this himself with "God's Been Good to Me." If a disk has two tracks with the same significant word, they had better both be stand outs. This is achieved with "Better Life" and "You're My Better Half." "Better Life" with it's funky banjo is the better better song, but both are single-worthy. Who knew a banjo could be funky in the first place? The pace slows down for the romantic Rodney Crowell ("Raining on Sunday") penned "Making Memories of Us" and the somber "Tonight I Wanna Cry." "Nobody Drinks Alone" is the highlight of the compilation. With lyrical depth and a killer guitar solo, this moving masterpiece will touch hearts and leave the listener in tears. Urban's traditionalist country roots are not forgotten. The toe-tapping "Live to Love Another Day" harkens back to his days in The Ranch. Oddly enough the low point of the CD is the Elton John/Bernie Taupin hit "Country Comfort." Perhaps this is due to placement since anything would pale when following "Nobody Drinks Alone," but it seems significant that a John/Taupin song could be the low point on any CD.
