5.0 out of 5 stars Carrie Blows Away The Competition May 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Carrie Underwood has taken almost two and a half years between Blown Away and her very fine Play On album of 2009 and the break has paid off in spades. While many successful singers get caught re-making the same style songs that brought them their initial fame, Carrie has chosen to broaden her creative horizon and sonic landscape with some of the most original and provocative songs of her career. Producer Mark Bright is not afraid to paint outside the borders of country expectations with this masterfully crafted album. I am sure some country purists will cry fowl for taking some of the music to a decidedly pop direction, but its a highly individual effort that Carrie herself was intimately involved with having written eight of the 14 songs on this exquisite album.

Lets begin with the first song and single on the album, Good Girl, a country rocking co-write by the former American Idol Champion. While this song might be the closest thing that one might expect as a follow-up to Before He Cheats or Cowboy Casanova, it really is a highly original number that changes both tempo and expectation as it takes you on its jaunty journey.
There is not another singer in the format that can rock n roll like Carrie and if you don't believe me, ask Steven Tyler who just got nominated for their duet together on CMT.

The next song on the album is the title track, Blown Away, which should be seen as a watershed moment in country music history for both its current greatest vocalist as well as the genre itself. This song is extremely bold in both its lyrical content, which deals with child abuse, and its amazingly creative sonic landscape which takes the listener on the childs ride through a storm in Oklahoma that might be able to sweep all her problems away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blown Away - Album Review May 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have to be honest. When I first listened to this album all the way through, just one week ago, I was feeling a little underwhelmed. Carrie's first three records were so dead on. I was not sure that her fourth album Blown Away was up to par. But the more I listened to it on my car stereo, the more it started to grow on me. I started to pay more attention to the lyrics and began to recite the melodies. Then, I slowly found myself reciting many of the tracks long after I had reached my destination.

"Two Black Cadillacs" was one that, once I really listen, it really caught my attention. Originally thinking that the song was about cars, I quickly learned that its meaning was far from that. Certainly the darkest song on her album, this song has the potential to be a single, that is if the world is ready for such a dark song from america's sweetheart.

Another favorite is "Good in Goodbye". A staple Carrie ballade, this track describes the bittersweet nature of seeing an old love again but realizing that sometimes leaving that person behind is for the better. This also has single potential.

The moral of this story is, once you have listened to the album all the way through, listen to it again. You will soon find yourself liking it, then loving it. Besides her current hit, "Good Girl", you will find yourself singing along to other uptempo hits like "Do You Think Of Me", "Nobody Ever Told You" and `Leave Love Alone". You will also find yourself relating to dramatic ballads like "Thank God for Hometowns" and Wine After Whiskey".

I guess Carrie was right when asked on Good Morning America last week what to expect on this album, when she jokingly replied, "14 tracks of awesome"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for Everyone May 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
On her most recent album, Blown Away, Carrie Underwood shows us the world of country music. She travels from traditional country to contemporary country to progressive country. This album serves up songs for people across the spectrum and should be lauded for it's diversity.

On the traditional side, Underwood provides the ballad Wine After Whiskey drawing the analogy between a regular relationship and the kind of love that is so strong that anything else seems "watered down". She continues down the traditional path with Thank God For Hometowns which touches on the nerves of what it feels like to go back home while also acknowledging a past desperation to go beyond one's hometown. The song embraces the listener as the hometown embraces the person returning. Forever Changed is a tenderly handled ballad about the story of one woman's life from marriage to birth to dementia. This is a painful topic yet Underwood sings about it with deep care and compassion that reflects a respect for the difficult and painful reality of dementia. Leave Love Alone is a rootsy country ditty that will leave you clapping your hands and stomping your feet.

On the contemporary country side, Underwood tackles fear of commitment with the fun Cupid's Got a Shotgun with the help of the excellent Brad Paisley on guitar. She confronts running into a past lover on Good in Goodbye and looking back on first love with Do You Think About Me. She follows the likes of Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band in dipping into Jimmy Buffet's school of music with One Way Ticket (Underwood provides the whistling herself). She hands out inspiration to young women with Nobody Ever Told You and inspiration for meeting one beyond this life in See You Again.

Carrie should do a gospel album
I agree!! Carrie and Vince Gill need to put out a CD that contains "How Great Thou Are" and any other songs they want.

Standouts for me include the first single, Good Girl, plus Leave Love Alone, Cupid's Got a Shotgun (which are quite varied in style), plus I really love One Way Ticket, Wine After Whiskey. I got a first listen through the fan club, many of these songs you do need to hear several times and... Read More
