This review is from: Some Hearts (Audio CD)
I am pleasantly surprised at this album! I was expecting some very poorly written songs and OK vocal performances like we've seen on past idol debut records. Carrie has proved she has amazing vocals, but sometimes on first albums singers tend to hold back. This is not the case for Carrie's CD! She really goes all out vocally, and to anyone that didn't know this is her debut CD, you'd think she has been up performing and making CD's her entire life! I never really was interested in country music, but after hearing this album I have changed my views. I never realized how refreshing it can be, and Carrie's beautiful voice just makes this album that much better. The songs are not cheesy, they have meaning. They are suitable for people of all ages, and I promise you will find songs on this album that will jump out at you. This CD is NOT a waste of money, and it will put Carrie on the country scene with a HUGE splash. This album is definitely the best debut from any american idol yet. The only album from American idol that is better than this is Kelly Clarkson's second album, Breakaway. But I guarantee Carrie will just get better and better as time goes on. So please, stop listening to me go on and on about how truly great this CD is and go listen to it yourself!
