    It 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. Expand

  1. On their sophomore effort, they stick very close to the formula of their debut: a slew of mid- and uptempo love songs, a sad ballad, and a couple of rocked-up good-time tunes--all self-written with some help from some of Nashville’s most respected writers.
  2. The band is playing on the safe side on its less vibrant and surprising sophomore release.
  3. On Need You Now, they try to define themselves outside the hive, and though the disc contains no shortage of uptempo charmers--''Perfect Day,'' ''Stars Tonight''--they're most successful when they keep to the moody minor-key stuff.
