Firstly, before I discuss the actual album I will talk a little about the band Lady Antebellum and what they mean to me. For those of you who have not heard of them, you probably have heard their songs on the radio but are not aware of who they are maybe. Lady Antebellum are a country band and apparently they have been around since 2006. According to an article I read, they were formed in Nashville, Tennessee where a lot of the great country singers come from. The trio is composed of Charles Kelley (lead and background vocals), Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin) and Hillary Scott (lead and background vocals). What really attracted me to this band to being with was Hillary's amazing voice, she has a really smooth deep sound to her voice that really works well in harmony with the other band members. She has a real country twang to her voice too and they sound really authentic but I think offer something new in the country scene. I love Lady Antebellum but so far this album for me is more silver than Golden! I think I am perhaps comparing it to their other albums but so far for me there are no stand out songs like their have been on their other albums. In fact, it was the single, Need You Now that first caught my attention and this album seems to be lacking a big hit. That's not to say it's not good. The melodies are harmonies are still amazing and the songs are brilliant stories, told in a perfect country way. I like all the songs, there's just not a stand out one for me yet, the album was only released in May of this year so I've only been listening to it for just over a month but it's definitely been going round on repeat in my car. It's very easy to listen to and a great driving companion. For example one of the songs, Track 6, It ain't pretty is all about a breakup and how a girl goes to a bar post break up to drink away her sorrows and ends up hooking up with a guy and how it was a mistake and talking about the walk of shame home and that it's all part of not being pretty! Quite a funny song but very correct in its story. Track 11 has some beautiful words too and is a perfect song if you have a husband/boyfriend etc who loves you. It talks about him being a better man for knowing and loving this girl and the chorus goes as such: I'm a better man since I love you I'm a better man since I love you When this crazy world is all through I'll be a better man cause I love you Cause I love you The other track listings are as follows: 1. "Get to Me" 2. "Goodbye Town" 3. "Nothin' Like the First Time" 4. "Downtown" 5. "Better Off Now (That You're Gone)" 6. "It Ain't Pretty" 7. "Can't Stand the Rain" 8. "Golden" 9. "Long Teenage Goodbye" 10. "All for Love" 11. "Better Man" 12. "Generation Away" I think this album will definitely grow on me, I very much LIKE it right now and hope to love it very soon but would still definitely recommend it to all you Lady Antebellum/country fans!
