    I don't want to bring the mood down here. Anyway, this guy's opinion doesn't matter. We should all be focusing on the surprise Carrie has for us tomorrow.

    ^ Tx Typo. I thought this counted on Metacritic. While a B+ is a good grade-- his tone and lazy review was much worse than that in some ways, so I do not want this half ass review included in metacritic for that reason.

    I hope that this does not mean all the critics are going to be lazy and dismissive like this one. His whole point was her stories are unbelievable, yet he is wrong. Murder and love triangles happen every day-- all over the world. The courts are full of people like the ones Carrie writes about. So not only are they believable, but they happen all the time.

    I don't need all the reviews to be 100% positive. I just want the reviews to be well-thought out, positive or negative. As an example, I always appreciate the reviews of Trigger from Saving Country Music. He gave a very positive review for SITW and a mixed one for Smoke Break, but in both reviews he explained extensively his reasons for giving said reviews. It's obvious the reviews were written with care and a lot of thought put in.
    (he even gave FGL a chance when they released Dirt. Lol)

    I'm feeling pretty good he gave her a B+. If that's all he could find, Carrie's in great shape for reviews this album.

    I feel bad for poor "Smoke Break". Why is everybody so against that song? I love it. Carrie does it great live as well.

    ^ Apparently Ty said this dude gave Blown Away a C Grade, and also gave Carnival Ride a bad grade. So apparently, B+ is the highest grade he has ever given to Carrie. haha So I guess we can take that as a Good omen.

    However- I agree with Claire on the quality of his review being poor and half ass. The grade is good, but I prefer to understand why they like or do not like something. He was so careless it was not even a review at all....but a sloppy mention.

    and he gave 5SOS an A-...LOL
    Blown Away "C"

    "her voice doesn't quite have enough edge or sass to make it believable." So is he saying 5S0S, 1D, Demi Lovato and Justin the believable ones...LMAO
    He's basically judging from a teeny pop world, he already had bad things planned before he even started.
    don't be sad. let him continue his C+ kind of reviews, so he can improve one day #lol

    Note that Glenn Gamboa did a top 25 albums of 2014 and he put Platinum at #1. And that was the only country album in his list.

    ^ Figures. So he is a Miranda stan. And a Taylor stan apparently too, per someone on another thread. Figures. All of these critics seem to worship Miranda and Taylor, and dump on Carrie as just some lame "American Idol winner."

    At least she can sing dude.

    This is review is so lazily put together that it isn't worth reading. There is praise and concern for the album. But each is expressed in such general and vague terms it leaves the reader wondering, 'What exactly does he mean?'. In the end the review is too brief and devoid of meaningful evaluation to waste one's time reading it.
    And after his whining he still gives it a B+, talk about inconsistent.

    On the other hand he did give it a B+. The album is so impressive that even a knit-picking want-to-be reviewer is forced to acknowledge it's greatness. So focus on the grade and ignore his comments it's obvious he's a conflicted soul.

    A review that short and that non-descriptive CANNOT be good review. It looks like a freshman Journalism student's rushed homework assignment... A well written review can't be taken seriously if it doesn't address all of the tracks, the order, the production, the lyrics, the vocals, etc... He merely said: "this album is good, but I don't like these songs"... A good reviewer goes into depth; providing well thought out reasons for their conclusions. This guy stated more of an opinion and left it at that. Though the grade was great, I thank God he (or this publication) is not recognized by Metacritic!

    We need a good review to erase the taste of this one from our memories. haha I hope Rolling Stone Mag is kind this time. They have been promoting Carrie more lately on their site, thankfully. But I suppose they could be paid to do so by Carrie's PR team. haha They could still slam her.
