  1. The band is playing on the safe side on its less vibrant and surprising sophomore release.
  2. The melancholy adds a little extra depth to even the most by-the-book of their songs.
  3. Its attempts at gravitas--"Hello World," on which Mr. Kelley sets a promising scene ("Traffic crawls, cellphone calls, talk radio screams at me") that doesn’t resolve-- land awkwardly, and its optimistic songs, like "Our Kind of Love," teem with empty metaphor.
  4. Shaw's production and songwriting credits have long been highlighted by an intuitive approach to pop-country, but Worley pushes the group's sound in a soulless, lite-rock direction that lacks any semblance of character or distinction.
  5. Lady Antebellum have potential, but they're mostly dull--by design.

The lead single "Need You Now" is a aIt couldn't have been a better name than "Need You Now" for the second album by country trio Lady A. The lead single "Need You Now" is a a beautiful country pop ballad and the best song of the album so far when Scott's voice really makes the song. Even she could sing it alone without needing of Kelley's voice. A simply stunning overture. Lyrics are varied as we can see in "Perfect Day", a really happy song when Scott's voice returns to show its good complement with country melodies. There's no so many differences in the rhythm of songs. Except for "Need You Now", all the songs seem similar, which make the album a little monotonous, considering this spot. Full Review »
