Album Review: Carrie Underwood's thrid album

Play On

Unlike Underwood's previous two albums, her name appears on seven tracks as a co-writer. It gives the album a much more personal edge to her music. Her voice is as strong as ever and her music is also as Country as it has always been. This is truly the best of her albums and it shows why it has sold as much as it has.

One of the best songs would be the first single off the album would have to be Cowboy Casanova. A smooth, smoky vocal gives it a true country feeling. It gives Underwood an edgier side, and yet stays true to who she is as an artist. Another highlight would be Someday When I Stop Loving You. A ballad of heartbreak and a love lost. It shows off Underwood's massive range and displays the emotional tenderness she can reach. Another good song would be Unapologize. An emotional love song about telling someone you love them. It, much like Someday When I Stop Loving You, gives a sweet and very emotional take on love.

Underwood's album is a success, another album under her belt that proves she deserves every amount of fame and success she has achieved when she won American Idol in 2005. If she continues on in the vein of Play On she will no doubt 'play on' in her majorly successful path.
