    I think Blair Daly is mainly responsible for the unusual structure of "Clock Don't Stop". He also co-wrote Maddie & Tae's "Your Side of Town", and Little Big Town's "Pain Killer" - those are also musically experimental songs, with off-genre influence, lyrics suggesting the character is thinking in scattered snatches, with considerable use of repetition ("Pain Killer" also uses the stuttered vowel effect).

    Yup. That lyric there dethroned "you stole my happy" as the most cringe-worthy lyric in a Carrie song for me. Lol

    Storyteller replaced CR as my favorite album from Carrie, it is seriously her best! (That's why I paid $20 for a Storyteller ornament to be on my Christmas tree for years to come! lol)
    That being said, I can't even come up with a top 3/bottom 3 but I can say my favorites out of the bunch are RR, DL, CB and Chaser!

    Wow, that would make for a great new poll because both of those lyrics are very cringe worthy.

    Nothing is as cringe-worthy as "He is good... so good"

    That lyric would have to be part of cringe worthy lyric poll.

    ^^

    That poll was so easy - 'Bang Bang on the drum, you're not a setting sun" is quite 'cringe-worthy'

    The other two are totally fine to me. I'm surprised 'You stole my happy' has more cringe-votes than 'He is good, so good'.

    TOP 3:

    1. Choctaw Country Affair (I love this song; it’s perfect when driving and it’s so SASSY. It just grabs your attention. I always vision Carrie killing it at the Grammys and then sellinging millions of copies of CCA. Lol, I am such a dreamer.)
    2. Church Bell (another great vocal and is awesome. I vision am epic video where Reba (Fancy (as her mom) is broke and passes the torch to Jenny (Carrie) to find a rich man. Then Fancy tells her to kill him bc he is abusive. )
    3. Chaser (love the vibe of the song. The pause before the 2nd verse still bothers me but overall it a great new sound. )

      Honorable mention: Heartbeat, Smoke Break, The Girl You Think I Am, Dirty Laundry, Like I Will Never Love You Again (Little Girls Don’t Grow Up To Fast)

    I like Mexico bc of the way she says the Spanish words but it reminds me too much of Something Bad. It’s seems like the story is incomplete. I only listen to it bc vocally the song is awesome.
    BOTTOM 3:

    1. Clock Don’t Stop (My least favorite song in this album. I heard it abt 5-6 times. I don’t understand the lyrics and don’t care t to listen to it again... lol)
    2. Renegade Runaway (This is a good song but it doesn’t do much for me. I think it’s a little too loud and it’s not relatable. However, I love the runaway, runaway part…this may grow on me but I am more into the other songs)
    3. What I Never Knew I Wanted (only bc I don’t listen to the song as much as I get home by the middle part of Mexico…lol)

    Relapse has grown on me a lot. I initially use to skip that song too.
    I waited for a while bc I tend to be a hard critic on my first few listens. Overall, it’s a great album. I love power ballads and want Carrie to do one on the next album.

    Poor Clock Don't Stop has become the red-headed stepchild of Carrie songs.

    I think the general message of Clock Don't Stop is insiparational, kinda like Play On. "Never give up, keepn on going," those kind of things. Unfortunately though, the lyrics are messy.

    Well this may cheer you up, my dad likes CDS and he's super critical of most modern music - like super critical. Out of all of the songs on the album that was def not one I picked him liking. Also I like it, I think the lyrics are just a cleaver play on words and that's not easy to do in a song.

    One of the first ever Brad Paisley songs I heard was called Ticks, I had to check that I was getting it right cause I just couldn't believe someone would put that in a song. 'And I'd like to check you for ticks' what the??? But then that's country music isn't? It always had a sense of humor which is why I love Maddie and Tae cause I feel like they are bringing the humor back.

    I feel like that's one of the things that country music has lost recently (like the last couple of years), that humor. Like look back on Carrie's albums you had songs like "Songs Like This", "More Boys I Meet" and "Cupid's Got a Shotgun". I don't feel that Storyteller has one of those cause CCA isn't really similar like its more bluesy and serious compared to those other songs.

    I love Luke Bryan's "That's My Kind of Night" cause it's just funny and has such silly words but its country music.

    It just feels like it's all gotten more serious and perhaps the genre could do with some lightheartedness and songs like "Goodbye Earl" nature or just silly funny things that are sung to an awesome up tempo beat that make you want to get up and dance.

    Wow this was supposed to be a simple post then got way out of hand - sorry
