Everyone that I enjoy, either leans towards country rock or pop country. I enjoyed George Strait for a time, but everything he does sounds the same. I hope Carrie sticks to her guns and records what she likes because for myself, I find it refreshingly different and honest. With a voice like hers, she should be allowed to sing what she likes. Whether they like the style or not, most have to admit her voice is the best in the business.
    I agree with you. I would never like a very traditional country album because I will be so bored. I love this album and that's what it counts for me.

    If LLA is the only country song on the record then what are Wine After Whiskey, Cupid, Forever Changed, etc? lol

    and i bet the only reason they bring LLA is because the demo was out months before.. lol.

    Looks like another "I'll just listen to the clips" review.
    These types of critics are a waste.At least the Slant guy listened to the cd.

    This is a bad review. I hate these reviews to be honest. I feel that they don't understand what Carrie is all about. Oh well! Does this person's opinion really count? Not really!

    This person isn't even trying to be open-minded about things.The description of Thank God For Hometowns is absurd.
    Thanks to this writer for giving me a good laugh this morning .

    Why? He's not going to change his review. I don't think we should give the bad reviews too much attention.

    Exactly. If he didn't even bother to listen to "Blown Away" given he can't even justify his own critique of the album then why would he change it because of the fans? He's just not worth our time.

    NoIt is not included and the herald has hated almost all carries cds so no surprise there.

    Boston globe does count on metacritic and they tend to like carrie better then thd nasty Herald.
