And their harmonizing is so great, that each song is amazing.
Kenneth J. Lohman
I loved "I'm With the Band" from the first time I heard them do it in concert and know how much they appreciate their fans.
K. Stuckey
All the tracks are pretty good but the ones that I like best so far are "I'm With the Band" and "That's Where I'll Be".

I discovered this band purely by accident. I was surfing AOL radio looking for something different and stumbled on "I'm With The Band" with it's intricate layered harmonies and perfectly plucked stringed ensemble. The lushness of this project combined with honest lyrics and nods to country, '70's rock and bluegrass make Little Big Town a refreshing spin. This could mark the return of melody, excellent musicianship and pure vocal harmonies. The comparisons abound, but the music is still original enough to make those comparisons just reference points. You may here a touch of Fleetwood Mac or the Eagles or some modern country. But Little Big Town is more. They are atmospheric pioneers of rock, pop and country. I have not heard harmonies this important since the Mamas and The Papas or dare I say the Beach Boys. But fused into the vocal parts are epic stories of love, faith and hope. A musically optimistic strain mixed with struggle and deep longing. I had to listen to "Fine Line" about 12 times to hear all the subtlety admist the angst of Karen Fairchild as she looks at love on the edge as a banjo, lead guitar and driving backbeat underscore her plea for love. "Fury", the albums bruising closer leans toward southern rock. "Evangeline" channels Rumours-era Stevie Nicks like crazy, but is far more stirring in it's description of a woman's bad relationship. You can feel the passion, the turmoil, and the instrumental harmonics of this mixed quartet. The boys mix it up with the girls on almost every song. And the battle of the sexes is never won. It's just a 10 round boxing match with neither side clearly having the edge. "Novacaine" is a call and answer romp that emphasizes the fun side of this band. And it shows the diversity of style within "A Place To Land".Read more ›

I have always been impressed by LBT's harmonies and "A Place to Land" is the tightest they have sounded yet. I loved "I'm With the Band" from the first time I heard them do it in concert and know how much they appreciate their fans. The title track, with it's down-home banjo intro and Kimberly's sugary sweet voice, is really cute and makes me smile. "Novocaine", "Vapor" and "Fine Line" are all clever plays on words and I laughed the first time I heard "Firebird Fly", not just because of the lyrics but because Phillip sounds kind of like Phil Vassar at the beginning. "Fury" is the most rockin' and closes the album with a bang. Jimi sounds awesome on "To Know Love" and reflects his true happiness now. I couldn't be happier for the triumphs of this band and think this collection will go platinum quick!!

As others have said, there is not a bad/weak song on LBT's latest release. All songs except one were also written by the members of LBT. For me, the song, "To Know Love" is worth the price of this CD alone. It's one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard -- the words and harmonies truly give me goosebumps. IMO they should consider this for their next cut off the CD. At times their tight, melodious harmonies sound similar to The Eagles. Dare I say that...but it's true and what a compliment to give to them. Congrats to LBT on a stellar release...and if you already have discovered this gem of a CD, be sure to tell your friends!

I don't think there's enough 4-part harmony in the world, let's start with that.

I'm a huge fan of LBT, I even bought the first cd which is really, really not very good. But this album is fantastic, especially if you're a fan of 70s southern rock because this has that feel. Good guitar, good tight harmonies, some good rock moments, some soft but not overdone ballads. They don't sound overproduced and slick, they sound really classic. There a guitar riff in one song that sounded really familiar and it took me several listenings to finally i.d. the sound: The Eagles. There are certainly worse bands to be compared to.

All the tracks are pretty good but the ones that I like best so far are "I'm With the Band" and "That's Where I'll Be". I was disappointed to see they were nominated twice at the CMAs, won nothing and had to perform an old song -- not the new stuff like everyone else. Not only did they get ripped off but the fans got ripped off as well. All the other acts sang new material and the powers that be had them rehashing "Boondocks". Shame on them.

Bottom line, I love, love love this album! Their best yet! Hopefully they'll get the credit they deserve on next year's CMAs. Long Live LBT.

Bottom-Line: Like The Road To Here, "A Place To Land" is an aural treat, a musical feast for the ears and the soul; "it ain't love, if its mean Evangeline."

Here I sit in front of my keyboard and computer; my headphones on listening once again to the lush expertly arranged four-part harmonies that I have come to learn are the hallmark of Little Big Town. This time the album is the quartettes' 3rd studio release "A Place To Land" (2007). And I have to wonder again how this group escaped my notice until this year!?

Now that I am aware of the group Little Big Town is my new musical obsession; one or another of the group's songs seems to play in a continuous loop in my head, and that is saying a lot because I listen to a LOT of music in the course of a day. But unlike some of the cookie-cutter sounds spewing out of Nashville hit machine these days, the tunes played by Little Big Town is just gorgeous music!

Little Big Town, founded in 1998 in Nashville, is composed of Karen Fairchild (lead & background vocals), Kimberly Schlapman (lead & background vocals), Jimi Westbrook (lead & background vocals, rhythm guitar), and Phillip Sweet (lead & background vocals, rhythm guitar). The quartet's musical style relies heavily on opulent four-part vocal harmonies, with all four members alternating as lead singers.

Since its release in 2007, "A Place To Land" has produced (1) Top 40 hit, track No.2 I'm With The Band. Shortly after that song's release Little Bog Town moved to a new label, Capitol Records Nashville, which acquired the rights to "A Place To Land" and subsequently released track No.1 Fine Line and track No.13 Good Lord Willing as the albums second and third singles.
