Carrie's Found Her Roots
on June 14, 2005
First of all, I'd like to say that the "American Idol" singles that the winners release are characteristically 'corny' and 'cheesy.' Having said that, I believe that "Inside Your Heaven" is the second best single released by a winner (right behind "I Believe").
There are some disappointing aspects of the single. For example, the single lacks the crowd-favorite "Angels Brought Me Here," the song that supposedly won Carrie the competition. Another complaint of mine is that "Independence Day" is on here, because the same exact track was on the "AI4 Showstoppers" CD. Despite these flaws, "Inside Your Heaven" is an amazing inspirational single that appeals to many different demographics of Carrie's fanbase.
1) Inside Your Heaven - 8/10 stars - IYH is a versatile song, as it will get airplay on every kind of radio station, including Pop/Mainstream, Adult Contemporary, Country, and Christian. Lyrics, though corny to some, are inspirational.
2) Independence Day - 7/10 stars - Great cover of Martina McBride's hit, Carrie is in her element on this track. May seem a little too much of the same thing, as Carrie has performed this song endlessly. But overall, very good.
Again, "Inside Your Heaven" is a must-have for any "Idol" fan. I also highly recommend these other "Idol" singles: "Dreams/Don't Cry Out Loud/I Believe" by Diana DeGarmo, "A Moment Like This" by Kelly Clarkson, and "Inside Your Heaven" by Bo Bice.
