Read it here: Country Universe – A Country Music Blog » Single Review: Carrie Underwood, “Good Girl”In three-and-a-half minutes, Underwood surprised me more than any country recording since “Giddy On Up”, and without any of the accompanying camp. I’ve always been a fan of hers, because Glory to God in the Highest That Voice, but I never suspected that she’d be this relentlessly creative.
An absolutely exhilarating record.
I had to read that to see who wrote it and was glad to see it was kevin since Tara is a known stan of Carrie. great review.
Damn good review. "relentlessly creative", oh yea.
I like the review! And they were really nice about it!
Very good points, it really takes you on a ride. You think it's going one way, and boom. I love that.
Should we call Good Girl a CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED single yet?
I love this review to pieces. He really got the song.
Holy crap! Am I dreaming?? THREE great reviews of "Good Girl" AND an A from Country Universe?? *faints.*
Nice read - love to see these bloggers surprised at her creativity - she's just scratching the surface - it's interesting to read all the opinions of country true bloods - it seems everyone wants Carrie to do the kind of songs they like and if she doesn't they get annoyed with her - she has this voice and everybody wants a piece of it - good for Carrie to just do what she likes , keeps the music honest
does anyone think not adding in unnecessary "country" instruments is actually paying off for her? the song is what it is. and its damn good.
The good reviews just keep on coming! T4p!
This was the one review I was wanting to see, and so, SO hoping it would be a good one. Excellent review - Kevin makes some points that I hadn't thought of myself.
'Relentlessly creative' ... that's our Carrie!!! I am so proud ... so happy ... so ... EVERYTHING!!!
Wow, this reviewer said EXACTLY the way I felt about the song. It has so many levels to it and when you think it's going in one direction it goes in another. It's so "in your face" and there's nothing like this on the radio right now, not even on pop.
So happy about this. Universe can be really hard on Carrie. Everyone can be really hard on Carrie.
But this review is just gut blowingly honest. Good Girl is a complete surprise. Everything you expect from Carrie and yet a total surprise.
So happy that she is leaving the critics blown!
Kenny, thank you for posting this wonderful article. I totally love the review. I especially love the ending, A Capella, of Good Girl because the best part of Carrie's music is her voice...love it.
Amazing review! The best I've read yet! Thanks for posting
Great review. Sooo proud of Carrie.
Thanks for posting this great review.
