5.0 out of 5 stars Keith Urban Rocks Country!, January 27, 2011
This review is from: Keith Urban: Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy World Tour - Live (DVD)
I've never been a fan of "country music" and am not sure Keith Urban should be pegged as such: he ROCKS! I was vaguely aware of him after making a name for himself here in the U.S. but it wasn't until I happened upon one of his music videos on CMT that I really took notice---I mean I REALLY took notice! Aside from being mighty easy on the eyes, this talented singer/songwriter/musician is impossible to ignore. I haven't had the pleasure of seeing him perform in concert yet but it sure looks like ALOT of fun! He's a class act: humble, appreciative of his fans, and clearly having the time of his life doing what he so obviously loves. He's not afraid to have a laugh at his own expense, and his humor and enjoyment in what he's doing are so infectious that he brings his audience right along with him for one heck of a ride. I can't help but rock along with him, even from the couch, and then he'll switch to a ballad so beautiful my throat starts to tighten up. As his career has progressed he's opened himself up more and more in his lyrics, and when he sings them you know he means them.
The man is a truly gifted musician, whether playing a variety of guitars with incredible skills(he's a maniac!)or accompanying himself on keyboards for a tender ballad. I'm sure the country "purists" might have a problem with his style: Hank Williams he ain't, but I'm all for diversity in any musical category and am pleased to see so many artists "crossing over" into other genres. (Good job, Robert Plant!) This DVD, as well as the 2005 "Livin' Right Now" and the 2010 CMT "Crossroads" collaboration with John Mayer, is one good time from beginning to end---and you don't want it to end! If you can't get to a live concert, having him in your living room ain't a bad thing. Keith: give me more.
