Sep 14, 2018At its best, she’s never sounded more vulnerable, or more willing to play within the definitions of country music. But it also means that when she pulls back, and falls into the costumes of others, it’s a little harder to accept the veil. ... It’s the second half of Cry Pretty where Underwood starts to truly lay her cards on the table--and where she soars the most.
Sep 21, 2018Here the bluesy “Drinking Alone” transports you to a smoky bar where two lonely strangers find each other above their beer bottles, while “The Bullet” is a strong and surprising anti-gun-violence message from a country star. But it’s Underwood’s considerable resilience that shines through here.
Sep 19, 2018Underwood nails two tried and true country traditions: the drinking-to-death heart-wrencher (“Spinning Bottles”) and the faith-based, family-first hymn (“Kingdom”), proving both times that big, emotional ballads remain her bread and butter. Much of the rest of the album finds Underwood exploring pop and R&B sounds more than ever before. Sometimes, she’s successful. ... Sometimes, she’s not so successful.
Oct 4, 2018Her voice as a lyricist (she co-wrote two-thirds of the songs) tends to drift just a little, with the more specific songs working better. With the thick production on the album, it models radio trends but doesn't advance them. Given Underwood's talents, it would be exciting to see her craft a character-driven album and some quieter production.

Carrie's vocals are stunning! We know she sings all the high notes, but the low notes on this album are new to us and awesome. We get a little blues, R&B, Country, she tries so many styles that we haven't heard before! The best of our generation, and Cry Pretty is the highlight of her career!!… Expand
Sep 14, 2018Holy SMOKES! Bring the extinguisher because this album is pure FIRE! For anyone that said Carrie is ONLY Country POP, have them stop in for aHoly SMOKES! Bring the extinguisher because this album is pure FIRE! For anyone that said Carrie is ONLY Country POP, have them stop in for a listen or two to this album! I count it as NUMERO UNO of all her albums and I am literally STOKED !!!
GOTS is the very definition of country. Gives me Johnny & June vibes. Gonna have to get me some Jack in my coke and have a party…...
Low has just GOT TO BE A SINGLE! TODAY! TOMORROW! Even YESTERDAY! It reminded me somewhat of Patsy Cline and the crooning, whaling… A vocal masterpiece. FIRST CLASS!
Backsliding - I loved the words….really need to hear all of it.
Southbound – Absolutely loved it. Very catchy, a great quickstep! Pure country with a kicker!
TSWUTMLT – What a little mid tempo jewel.
Drinking Alone – I’m telling you….bluesy as all get out. Chris Stapleton vibes here. Ends with a shooter or two……..
The Bullet – Grab a towel in lieu of a Kleenex. Wow, start to finish, this is a tear jerker to beat all. Words are just beautiful, voice singing it even more so. Gave me a little bit of Allen Jackson The Day The World Stopped Turning vibes..
Spinning Bottles – WOW. Cut open my chest and exposed my heart in this soulful ballad with the almost sobbing vocals. Keep hold of the Kleenex you had for The Bullet.
End Up With You – Loving the staccato upbeat bursts in this song. Probably the least country of all the songs, it’s catchy as all get out.
Kingdom – Sounds very personal and glad to see that Carrie is including this kind of song on her new album. Perfectly imperfect…..
I personally give this album an A+
Loving the start to finish….the whole shebang. Love how it covers every facet of feelings from the lowest of lows and climbing to the highest of the highs with The Champion. A work of art. And the framer is Carrie. Her voice covers so many different facets throughout the album. Loving how she just WENT with it! Let it talk to her! Let her voice tell the stories!
The album is the definition of GRAMMY.… Expand

It is a deeply moving album lyrically, vocally and musically. Carrie Underwood has never sounded better using her voice to emote what the lyrics are describing. She has also written some of the best songs of her career with Spinning Bottles, Low, Drinking Alone, Backsliding, and Cry Pretty. It is a country album but she explores the sounds of R&B, Pop, and boy does she explore the sounds of Soul and Blues. I highly recommend this album.… Expand

Carrie Underwood continues to be my favorite singer of all time, the best country singer, and one of the best singers of all time. This is my 2nd favorite album of 2018 and is one of my favorite albums of all time. As always her voice was spectacular on this album. I could tell how personal this album is to her. I loved how she combined country with different types of music like r&b, pop, and soul. The cover for the album is gorgeous, I loved the sparkly crying makeup and it is my favorite album cover ever. The writing and production were both stupendous. The music video for Cry Pretty was a amazingly directed. The music video for Love Wins was very inspiring and beautiful. I loved ever single second listening to this song. Since I loved every song on the album I found it hard to pick my favorite's so instead I ranked them from 1 to 13 an my ranking is Low, Spinning Bottles, Drinking Alone, The Bullet, Cry Pretty, Kingdom, Love Wins, End Up Here With You, The Champion, Backsliding, Southbound, Ghosts On The Stereo, and That Song That We Used To Make Love To. God Bless her and her entire family. A+.… Expand

The same, whiny country-pop we expect from this boring-ass girl. There are boosters of this album that call it "experimental." Seriously? You call this "experimental"? Music artists like Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe, Solange, Kendrick Lamar, Kehlani, The Weeknd, and even Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott have experimented with several genres. And they have excelled at it, as they are visionaries compared to Carrie Underwood. Yet you don't see them widely praised as Carrie Underwood is, as they still have many detractors. It's up to you to see why. And it's frustrating.… Expand
