Country trio Lady Antebellum have sculpted a fine career for themselves over the year. After multiple Grammys and continued commercial success, the trio haven't attempted to shake up their sound because, honestly, why should they? "If Ain't Broke, don't fix it" right? Because of this philosophy, Golden is merely a good album, but not an exciting or innovative one. This is an album that should be 'just what the doctor ordered' to Lady A fans, but to more casual listeners, may not strike an earth-shattering chord. The standard cues are always in place: beautiful vocal blend between Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott and alternation of the lead, songwriting/guitar contributions from Dave Haywood, and somewhat conservative, thoughtful production work.

"Get To Me" opens solidly, but it isn't exceptionally engaging. It does the 'expected', but just leaves the desire to take things up a notch. "Goodbye Town" falls into a similar boat, this time with Charles Kelly handling lead duties. The biggest detraction with "Goodbye Town" is that it feels as if it will never end. At the end, Kelley is given too much free time to ad lib unnecessarily. Things look up with the proceeding trio of "The First Time", "Downtown" and "Better Off Now (That You're Gone)", which are stronger. Sure, the formula remains much the same, but all three cuts seem to have more polish than either "Get To Me" or "Goodbye Town" did.

"It Ain't Pretty" is pretty good, summed up by lyric "It ain't pretty when a heart breaks", but still it doesn't ruffle many feathers. "Can't Stand The Rain" remains conservative in sound, though grows in intensity on the chorus.

The songs play like a 45-minute daze of professional country pop. Nothing really memorable, even the recent #1 hit "Downtown" feels a bit watered down. Lady A plays it safe first and foremost. Not too much country, just enough to keep country radio playing them. Just enough pop to nearly soften out any hard edges, and turn Lady A into a borderline country/soft rock band.

While nothing on this CD is bad, nothing is really memorable, either. I think Lady A needs to take more chances on future releases, or risk giving up country radio for AC (adult contemporary) radio.

Edit: It's now 6 months since my initial review, and while I generally stand by it, I would like to add that this CD has grown on me, and even though it borders on AC, it's so well done that it's hard to complain about it. So much so, that I have increased my review from 3 to 4 stars.

I am just going to write my overall review and not go through track-by-track, at least not at this time. My initial opinion is that this album feels rushed and incomplete. The songs feel incomplete and in a flash the album is over before you knew it begun, and without any spine tingling moments! They build towards climax without satisfactory release. Barely a song over 4 minutes, nothing that pushes the limits, everything feels like a safe bet, status quo.

In my opinion, ALL FOR LOVE and IT AIN'T PRETTY are the best tracks on the album. However, they are crazy short. IT AIN'T PRETTY has potential, but the plot of the song never really develops, one minute she is driving to the bar, the next she is calling a cab and doing the walk of shame. The song builds and climaxes withing two minutes, my girlfriend wouldn't put up w/ that, and neither should we!

The vocals and guitar are the strong points. Hillary and Charles' chemistry is nothing short of amazing, as it always is. The Album would thrive best live...but as a standalone work, I am afraid GOLDEN will quickly get lost among 2013's Brilliant releases such as THE BAND PERRY'S:PIONEER and TIM MCGRAW'S: TWO LANES TO FREEDOM.

My husband is a huge fan of Lady Antebellum. He thinks the group, especially the female singer, are the very best country singers and he loves the stories they tell in their music. This CD was a disappointment to him and to me. Not bad, just not as good as their other CD's.

This is yet another great fourth studio album by the very successful and popular country-pop trio Lady Antebellum. The 7 times Grammy Award winners had a X-mas album (covers) in 2012 titled 'On This Winter's Night'. Fans have waited since their 2011 CD release 'Own The Night' for new material. The new CD release is titled 'Golden' (12 new tracks) and the trio has decided to use less instruments during the recording process : but their music is still sound great despite this change from this talented bunch.

Stand-outs/gems/my favourites are "Nothin' Like The First Time" (wonderful melody & vocals; great guitar & drums playing), "Better Off Now (That You're Gone)", "Long Teenage Goodbye" (mid-tempo track with great melody) & "Better Man" (beautiful guitar work & melody). Good tracks include the opening track "Get To Me" (great harmonies), "Goodbye Town" (this is the second single from this album), "It Ain't Pretty" (slow-tempo track), "Can't Stand The Rain", "Golden" (slow-tempo-ed title track) & the closing track "Generation Away". Okay tracks are "Downtown" (this is the first single) & "All For Love".

On overall, Lady Antebellum does not disappoint in this new CD release 'Golden', great compositions, execution and production. A recommended CD listening.
