    USA Today - Blown Away Review

    Carrie Underwood has a lovely country-pop voice and a winningly sweet, self-effacing manner. Yet you'd be hard-pressed to assign her an artistic personality beyond that.

    Carrie Underwood's singing is impeccable on her fourth album, 'Blown Away,' but there's a lack of excitement.

    Certainly, the songs on her new album, Blown Away (* * * out of four) cover a range of emotions and experience, and Underwood co-wrote some intriguing ones. In the pulsing Two Black Cadillacs, a man's widow and mistress meet at his funeral after sharing a secret phone conversation; Good in Goodbye charts a failed romance with two happy endings.

    Underwood's singing, as usual, is impeccable — technically supple and elegant but full of girlish pluck. Even when working a clichéd concept, she's at once impressive and authentic.
    Carrie Underwood album doesn't blow you away

    75 is good!

    I was expecting something bad based on their title. Doesn't quite match the rating.

    I think they never get the chance to meet Carrie... once they do they will never write anything like that

    Definitely felt like some comments were not needed, but the 3/4 is what matters in the end!

    This review isn't too bad. I'm glad they say that Carrie's vocals on the album are impeccable, that's so true. No-one can deny her vocal talent. Thank you for posting, Manchs.
