  1. Carnival Ride simply doesn't offer anything for the unconverted in terms of Underwood's growth either as a vocalist or as an artist.
  2. A record with stronger songs that somehow manages to sound just as banal as her first.

    Carrie Underwood is a monster of singer and this album, as Some Hearts, is the proof.

Carnival Ride is my second Carrie favourite album (behind Some Hearts). Every song is fantastic, every song has a deep meaning at it and every song has the classical catchy country sound!
