    People.com Review (2 1/2 stars but not so bad!)

    Carrie Underwood's fourth album, Blown Away, comes on like a tornado with its first three songs.

    There's the guitar-charged single "Good Girl," which, with all of its rock bluster, is maybe the least country thing she's ever done. Then there's the windswept title track, an over-the-top tale about a twister wiping out the house where an alcoholic father abused his daughter.

    Underwood keeps in melodramatic mode with "Two Black Cadillacs," a macabre revenge song. You may be exhausted after getting through all of that, but brace yourself for more overproduced, under-nuanced action – this is big-hair country. Fortunately, though, relief comes in the wistful, piano-laced "Forever Changed."

    Three other ballads – the nostalgic "Thank God for Hometowns," the bittersweet "Good in Goodbye" and the sobering "Wine After Whiskey" – are even better. Best of the uptempo numbers is "Cupid's Got a Shotgun," featuring no less a guitar slinger than Brad Paisley – and adding some double-barreled fun to all the high drama.

    not bad...we gotta remember that just because its not a 4/4 or 5/5 doesnt mean it isnt getting good reviews.

    Overall I say BA is getting good reviews...with the exception of a few who cant look past a couple not-so-amazing songs

    That was not bad-- but his "over produced" comment bugged me. Nothing is over-produced on this cd.

    I swear these critics only like maudlin boring acoustic crap.

    2.5 stars out of 4 is not bad-- but she deserved better.
