Well, I thought the new face of country was going to be populated by the likes of Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks, and Faith Hill, who carry catchy tunes, cross over to the pop charts (read oat-flavored pop tarts), and who make themselves into pin-ups to push sales. However upon hearing Sherrie Austin's Love In The Real World, it was as if I'd tasted ambrosia instead of sugar. The music is, to quote from "All The Love A Heart Can Hold," "sweet as honeysuckle on the vine." But honeysuckle and nectar might also be what flows in her veins as well.
It is pop-like in places, and even features mandolins, bazoukis, and electric sitars. The catchy "Never Been Kissed," "Little Bird," "Heart Hold On," "Heart To Heart," and "All That Matters" could easily have been singles on either chart. And she can hold her own ballad-wise--check out "That's No Way To Break A Heart" and the closer "Wish," which in the beginning, has her being granted a wish from an angel, and she wishes for her dear one to always love her instead of wishing for an end to poverty or war. At the song's end, she uses 20/20 hindsight and says she would have used her one wish to have three wishes, and THEN wish for all three. Intuitive and genuine, Sherrie!
The only deviation to her themes is the title track, which might be a romantic's dream gone sour due to reality. "What happens to happy-ever-after" she asks of a typical couple living in the modern age?
Sherrie's got the same vocal pitch as Susanna Hoffs, sugary but with her own brand of sass. And there are no songs about pick-up trucks, divorces, abused spouses, etc.

This CD by Sherrie Austin was an impulse buy after listening to "Never Been Kissed" on the radio. I've never been much of a country fan, but after being exposed to this album, I'm hooked. The songs stay in my head thoughout the day; a nice variety of upbeat tunes, slow ballads, and good stories. I find myself reaching for this CD again and again. I feel like I've found a secret treasure of music! If only more of these songs would get radio play - this is the perfect album.

Sherrie Austin is much more than just a beautiful face. She has a very distinct voice and style that is very refreshing in a time where it seems record companies are recording far to many sound-a-like singers. I enjoyed every song on the CD which is unusual, most times CD's have a couple of good ones and a bunch of fillers.

In her second album, Sherrie Austin does the unthinkable: She lives up to her first (a hard feat for many artists!). In Love in the Real World, Sherrie lets it loose with up tempo, thoughtful songs. The only real tradgedy of the CD is that the radio decided to ignore it. Sad loss for them and any music fan that didn't have the privilege of hearing this album. Highlights include the awesome up-tempo "All that Matters" and "All the Love a Heart Can Hold", plus the sincere "Wish" and "That's No Way to Break a Heart" (a lighter, earthier version of the same song from her first album--Sherrie was hoping to release it as a single, but due to record label troubles it never happened. Pity. )
Bottom Line: Love in the Real World is one of those albums you can listen to over and over a hundred times and never get tired of it. (trust me- I know from personal experience!)

I own Sherrie Austins first album 'Words', and thought it couldn't get any better. When I found out about 'Never Been Kissed' I went out and bought it, thinking only she could outdo herself. She did just that. Each song is very catchy and well written. It's good to see an artist have such a prominent hand in the writing of the songs. It gives them personality. I don't think S.A. gets nearly enough airplay for as good as she is. She is one of country musics' best, underplayed artists. I enjoy the entire album every time I hear it. A very, VERY listenable collection of music.

At first I was disappointed that Sherrie doesn't cut loose and let 'er rip like she did on her first CD with "Lucky In Love" and "Put Your Heart Into It." Most of this CD is decidedly mid-tempo, but the melodies are rich and the songs tell good stories that the everyday person can relate to. That's what makes this CD more interesting with each listen. With her beautiful and unique voice, Austin could make a good album out of lesser material. The only annoyance: it's tough to wait until cut #9 for the rockin' title song, which is the best on the CD.

This Australian beauty can do it all ! The follow up to her debut "Words" is wonderful ! It's nice to find a great singer/songwriter in the country music business. "Never Been Kissed" is only the begining of this well written toe tapping pop gem. "Little Bird" is a outstanding fun song. One of the most melodic tunes out there as we speak. Sherrie's voice is dead on,powerful, soulfull and fun all rolled up in an outstanding sophmore effort. This record is a must for any pop/country fan.
