    This review looks like it was written by the Associated Press! Oh dear.

    You and me both! I am kinda surprised though! The Associated Press in the past always gave Carrie positive feedback.

    Carrie could come out with the GREATEST ALBUM IN THE HISTORY of music(BLOWN AWAY is by far Carries best) and CRITICS would still not want to get it... I tried to warn you guys.... SOME CRITICS have too much invested in negative stereotypes about Carrie to ever give her an honest review...
    Wear it as a badge of honor instead of being bummed... Some of the greatest artists of all time including Elvis got terrible reviews... But music doesn't lie like critics do... If the music moves you buy it and it lasts forever.. And critics meaningless words end up at the bottom of a Birdcage with bird$hit all over them.....

    This is the biggest "and cheapest" swipe that a critic can take at Carrie.
    They criticized her for being "too puritanical" and then have the nerve while the pen is still warm to criticize her for becoming the star they demanded she start acting like.
    Hold up your head Carrie, and be the artist you know yourself to be.
    You will not please critics who are looking to hate. It's just not going to happen.
    I stated at the start that this was the "cheapest" of the insults, because this album is a commitment to being the bigger than life star that everyone has demanded that Carrie become instead of singing weak sentimental songs like JTTW/TH/Change.
    And of course as soon as she does develope that confidence they are more than happy to pretend they liked the old-Carrie better.
    Hypocrites!!

    You're absolutely right, Russ. I just posted a new thread from a radio station with an AWESOME review -- made me feel GREAT immediately. So the AP can take it and STICK IT!!

    And as a reminder,
    All these negative critics seem to want to harken back to SH as Carrie truly defining work.
    Well, lest they forget, let me remind you..."They Hated That To"!!

    Ridiculous isn't it? These reviewers seem to have the awesome ability of altering memory based on sales of the album

    Some of these reviews are sooooooooo depressing! Especially depressing is when it's an AP one. Think I'll drink some wine after this shot of whiskey.

    This is so superficial of me, but the AP review doesn't count at Metacritic, right? I didn't see AP, or Washington Post, on their list of publications. Yes, yes, I'm Metacritic-obsessed lol.

    Relax guys, some of these same critics gave Adele an average rating, and we all know what happened next. The same thing will happen with Blown Away. I'd say
    Carrie is in good company.

    That's right.

    Especially now a days when people can find the album and listen to the songs for themselves then decide if they want to buy it or not.

    Unfortunately, this review will be everywhere because it is the AP. This will run on several media outlets that don't write their own reviews. However, I'm pretty sure it doesn't count for Metacritic. I fully expect to see this review posted on this site about a billion times though because it will show up on several sites, and people will assume it's new.
    I say just ignore it, and enjoy the album.
