  1. Keith Urban plays it so safe on Defying Gravity, you'd think he got a musical lobotomy when he went to rehab.
  2. So much of the album feels so deliberately tasteful and conservative. Defying Gravity barely gets off the ground.

    Solid album by Keith. He's an extremely talented musician and continues his path outside of the country genre. Defying Gravity Solid album by Keith. He's an extremely talented musician and continues his path outside of the country genre. Defying Gravity encompasses many different musical styles without sacrificing his own sound. The luscious guitar on "'Til Summer Comes Around" and the rollicking "Hit the Ground Runnin" are two of my favorites here. Keith proves in this album that if you don't have to play a lot of notes if you only play the right ones. Full Review »
