It's sometimes hard to take Keith Urban seriously as an artist. After all, songs such as "Once in a Lifetime" were written specifically to be radio hits. It's unfortunate that only his lesser material (for the most part) gets radio airplay, because looking at his albums overall, one gets the sense that Urban truly knows how to craft a fine piece of music.

LOVE, PAIN, & THE WHOLE CRAZY THING is a great record, and let me tell you why. Sure, it has its ready-for-radio tunes, but we'll look beyond that. What we're looking at, specifically, is Urban's musicianship: what other chart-toppers today can boast that they play guitar, bass, ganjo, piano, and various other odds-n-ends on their records? Not many. What other artist today can write an instant chart-topper, alongside tunes that require a bit more thought-processing? Not many. What other artist today can amass such a following, and yet still feel compelled to prove himself time and time again? Urban could sit back on his heels and enjoy the success he's gained...yet, as the non-standard production of "Got It Right This Time" shows, he's still experimenting with what he can do. Listen to the bass line of "Faster Car" (played by Urban), and not feel that Urban has something else to say. Listen to the drum/guitar solo of "I Told You So" and not feel like you're in the midst of a revolutionary rock record.

So maybe Keith Urban isn't "revolutionary." But he's definitely pushing the bar. He is a super-talented singer/songwriter, who hasn't let his success limit him. LOVE, PAIN & AND THE WHOLE CRAZY THING is a great pop/country/rock record, with more emphasis upon the latter two. The songs are by and large standouts, and the musicianship is stellar. Urban has another winner on his hands here; don't miss this one.

This highly anticipated release by country music's innovator, Keith Urban takes this artist's previous country rock blend and pushes the envelope of the genre even further. This album is the next step blending country, rock and Beatlesque pop in one gorgeous aural tapestry of music that proves country singers can have not only heart but soul. At first listen to the first single, Once in a Lifetime, this CD would seem to reflect the joy of love but underneath there is also the current of pain and regret that proves that nothing in life is perfect and that love can both lift you up and break your heart.

Highlights are Shine, the amazingly fun and funky Faster Car, the aching regret of Stupid Boy,the gorgeous Won't Let You Down and the joyous hoedown of Raise the Barn which is a valentine to the American south in need from an Australian boy who has made Nashville his home. There is not a disappointing track on here. Even God Made Woman with its Stones Can't Always Get What You Want like choral opening is a bit of over the top fun.

This CD is one that should appeal to music lovers and is sure to open up a new audience for Keith's music while keeping him in the forefront of country music as a true innovator and artist.

This singer has a beautiful, passionate voice with quiet strength in it. It moves you, especially since most of his songs really resonate from the heart, or at least seem to. These are the songs people live and love to hear and listen to. I love the unique quality of Urban's voice which always seems haunted and mysterious whether he's happy or sad while he's singing. There's a lot of emotion there, and the tortured soul of an artist making money doing what he loves.

I only began listening to Keith Urban in late 2004 (so I am a relative newbie) when he released the amazing "Be There", which was apparently the CD that took Urban into the stratosphere of success. It's not hard to see why as that release, as well as this one have sold have. They both really grab you into the songs and don't let you go. If I had to try to explain to someone who never heard this artist why I love Keith's music is that it is intimate, sweeping, catchy, loud and while very much rooted in country it is not a slave to the genre. From an Australian? I keep seeing stereotypes tumbling down...

While most reviews for this release have been very positive, I can understand why some, especially long term fans, don't like the direction that Keith's music has taken as he has stepped away from what could be considered the center of country music. Artists as diverse as Wynnona, Faith Hill, k.d. Lang, and possibly the granddaddy of all, Garth Brooks, (just to name a few) have suffered the wrath of some fans for what they see as selling out by becoming more mainstream. What some may not take into account is that most music is a patchwork of sorts that is influenced by music from all over the world and from different genres within each culture. For example, there is no denying that from the very beginning, The Eagles, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt where as rooted in country as in rock. Listen to "Take It Easy" if you have any doubts.

I don't see this release as anything but something from a really successful artist who is following his own bliss. If you happen to like more traditional country music, nothing here will satisfy that need.
