Review: Carrie Underwood "Blown Away"


25. Apr. 2012, 2:07

Carrie Underwood nails it again. Her vocals were on point in this one of a kind album. There is also another thing that makes this album worth listening to, the background vocals. As Carrie said "There’s a little bit of a darker side to it, It’s just stormier.” Dark is right, and I like dark. You see, she is known for those break up type of songs and she said she wanted to switch things up. She says "Good Girl" is ultimately the upbeat song out of the entire album.. I'll take her word for it. But, let's actually talk more about the song. It's "Cowboy Casanova" all over again! The country rock beat with the tremendous vocals, how could you NOT like this song? The 2 tracks after ''Good Girl" ("Blown Away" and "Two Black Cadillacs") are going to be the fan favorites, but I won't try to hold it against you if you say different. "See You Again" has the dark, almost frightening background vocals that anyone could like, which contrasts itself from the song. "Do You Think About Me" steps out from the dark for awhile, with an upbeat instrumental. In "Forever Changed", it seems she steps back into the dark, with this heart-wrenching ballad. In "Nobody Ever Told You" brings in a solid country beat with Carrie delivering a powerful message. In the track "One Way Ticket" brings in what could a new genre, Country Reggae, just judging from the instrumental! But, let's break away from instrumentals for awhile, I feel as though this song is saying you should live your life the best way possible. Next track.. ''Thank God For Hometowns", before I listened to it, I thought it was "I Ain't In Checotah Anymore" Part 2, and I actually I still do. I also believe this track makes you want to praise your native town. "Good In Goodbye" - This ballad drives me to believe that there really is a good in goodbye. For "Leave Love Alone", Carrie sings over a western beat that she loves love and doesn't want to ignore it, I believe this song is great for all the love drunks! "Cupid's Got a Shotgun" sounds like Carrie is escaping from Cupid, but that won't stop him! In "Wine After Whiskey", the intro sounds like something you would hear in a Legend Of Zelda game. Carrie delivers ballad driven vocals that could possibly leave you crying with your heart in the dirt (see what I did there?). Now, for the finale "Who Are You" (which was penned by the recent ''Yoü & I" producer, Mutt Lange). This song, to me, feels like she is praising Jesus, which is what should most people do. Overall, I do enjoy this FANTASTIC album!
