    Billboard: 'Blown Away' Track-By-Track Review

    For those who think they know what to expect from Carrie Underwood on her fourth album, prepare to be "Blown Away." Co-writing eight of the 14 tracks, Underwood delivers her most adventurous album yet, tackling a variety of emotional topics, including abuse, infidelity, revenge and regret.

    Love, love, love this part of the review:

    "Blown Away" is a rich tapestry reflecting the complexities of the human condition
    It's so true. This album conveys nearly every emotion that a human can experience - anger, revenge, love, death, loss, happiness - you name it and it's on the album. Great review.

    ^^This one will definitely count. The ones we have that are considered for the metacritic score are: Billboard, All Music, Slant, NY Times, LA Times (I think ?), Boston Globe.

    This review is the only one who truly I believe the others didn't listen the entire album and have criticized negative.

    I Loved the Blown Away is perfect. Carrie good job I'm really proud to be your fan.

    I think out of all the reviews Billboard just "gets it.". Critic reviews don't change the way I feel about an album, because tastes in music are personal. Billboard however is different , their trade is music. Thanks billboard for giving Blown Away a honest and thoughtful review.

    Great review! Now that is how it is done!

    What is the metacritic score for this? Did they grade it?

    Someone said they gave her a 89/100! I hope it's true.
