All the songs on her cd are amazing i love them all!!My favorite are Just a Dream.
Sherry Perry
You hear her great voice throughout the album, but there are a few songs that you listen to her and just sit back and say "Wow!".
Juan C. Cruz
The lyrics and music compliment each other perfectly and Carrie's voice is very powerful.

While most country stars go forward and reach for mainstream pop records, like Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood went in reverse. Her first disc had more than a few pop elements but this disc starts off with a foot stomper, "Flat on The Floor" and doesn't let up with fiddles, twang and chorus after chorus that will make you want to shout them out of your car windows. To say she has made a solid country disc in the vein of vintage Reba or Dolly is an understatement.

Underwood has even learned some new vocal tricks, as if she needed more, "Get Out of This Town," builds from an already assured vocal into a firestorm. Underwood isn't afraid to just go with the vocal and give a stronger reading as well. That was evident in her cover of "I'll Stand By You," which was simply stunning.

"Carnival Ride," is void of any weak tracks and this day and age that's a rare finding, some are stronger than others but, Jebus, the girl is giving her all to prove that she's a more than just a pretty face who sings country, she's trying to prove it's in her blood. And when you hear "You Won't Find This," that brings about that sing songy chorus that Shania Twain loves so much, you'll be a happy camper with your purchase.

The second album from Carrie Underwood packs slightly less punch than her debut, but is still more than enough to further cement her place in the contemporary country hierarchy. Solidly country, this album showcases Underwood as a singer/songwriter with writing credits on four of the tracks - first single "So Small"; the excellent "All American Girl"; "Crazy Dreams" and the comedy track "Last Name". (If you liked Alan Jackson's "I Don't Even Know Your Name", you'll see lots of similarities to the aforementioned "Last Name".)

All the tracks are worth a listen, but some are immediately worth an instant replay. My recommendations are:

Flat on the Floor - a hard-rocking track with attitude
All-American Girl - instant single material with heartwarming lyrics
So Small - soaring first single about not sweating the small stuff
Just a Dream - a tear jerker with a wonderful chorus
Crazy Dreams - catchy beat just slightly reminiscent of Pink Floyd's "Education"
I Told You So - slow ballad written by Randy Travis
Wheel of the World - an easy listening track with inspired backing music

If the four tracks on which she has songwriting credits are any indication, Carrie Underwood has nowhere to go but up - should be a wild ride. (4.5 stars)

Wow. After the amazing success of Carrie Underwood's debut CD Some Hearts, I was very worried that Carnival Ride would be a let down. How can someone so new to the music industry hit it out of the park on her first 2 at bats? When So Small was released I was pleasantly surprised. Great message, voice, talent. But - could the rest of the CD be as good? YES! Right from the first song I was tapping my foot and singing along. By the time I got to All-American Girl, So Small & Just A Dream I was crying. Get Out of this Town had me thinking about Some Hearts & Crazy Dreams had me flashing back to AI & Nashville Star (not just Carrie, but ALL my favorites that are now on their way). Then WOW, Carrie just SINGS and drags you in emotionally with I Know You Won't, You Won't Find This and I Told You So (Randy Travis will be proud). In between, I am given Last Name (which I love but my husband says is NOT appropriate for the kids) and The More Boys I Meet - thank you Carrie - they are great, fun songs. The CD ends with two more great songs Twisted & Wheel of the World. The more I listen to this CD the more I love it. Have it on the ipod, the computer and in the car! Carrie you did it again (sorry if I doubted you a little - it will never happen again!)

Okay, I was nervous to hear this album. I LOVED her debut and I love So Small but sometimes artists just fail on Sophomore albums. Okay, that is so not the case here. She is amazing! She knows just the right songs that suit her. If you are a fan of Carrie my biggest recommendation is to go get this album. Easily one of my favorites. Every song is amazing and it showcases her voice perfectly.

After winning American Idol, selling 6 million copies of her debut album (pretty amazing in today's fast declining album market), and taking home too many awards to count on two hands, Carrie Underwood delivers sophomore album "Carnival Ride." Now obviously with the kind of awards and numbers her first album brought her, Carnival Ride has some colossal footsteps to follow in. The sophomore slump is the most common fate that befalls follow up albums to huge debuts, but thankfully "Carnival Ride" is far detached from the sophomore slump moniker.

The album is a non stop showcase of the perfect contemporary country music, and is not only on par but surpasses her debut "Some Hearts" in about every way. The album is also a slight genre change from "Some Hearts", as it is by far much more country and less pop than her debut was. Though the album leans a little more on the ballad side, it's a pretty well balanced album overall, as fast and upbeat songs like "Flat on the Floor" and "Last Name" mix well with soaring ballads like "I Know You Won't" and "Just a Dream." Possibly the most amazing thing about Carnival Ride is the sheer commercial potential of the album. Not since Come On Over has there been a country album with this many huge hits just waiting to be played on radio. Honestly every song has single potential, and they may as well just put names of the songs into hats and draw, because I don't know how else they're gonna pick the singles. The songs are very good beyond just commercial appeal as well.

The album begins with the above mentioned, fast paced, "Flat on the Floor". This song is definitely new territory for Underwood, as it's a full on country rock song.
