Carrie Underwood – Storyteller (2015) [Country, HighResAudio, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Carrie Underwood
Title: Storyteller
Genre: Country
Release Date: 2015
Label: 19 Recordings Limited/Arista Nashville
Duration: 45:51
Quality: FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit

"Something in the Water," the new single tacked onto Carrie Underwood's 2014 compilation Greatest Hits: Decade #1, was an operatic blowout on par with her 2012 smash "Blown Away" --- something grand and melodramatic, suggesting Vegas as much as it suggested inspirational music. Storyteller, her fifth album and first since her career recap, certainly contains cinematic elements --- Underwood has been proud to be a diva ever since she prowled the stages of American Idol a decade prior --- but the title isn't a feint; she spends a good chunk of the album reiterating, singing about heartbreak, hair triggers, red wine, dirty laundry, and smoke breaks, the mundane details that turn life so joyous and tragic. Subtlety isn't Underwood's strong suit so the songs tend to be a bit on the nose, whether she's pledging devotion to her newborn son on the sweet closer "What I Never Knew I Always Wanted" or streamlining Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe" via the stomping "Choctaw County Affair," but that directness is key to her appeal: there are no greys in Carrie's music, only blazing primary colors. Appropriately enough, Storyteller gleams with steely assurance, perhaps the toughest and boldest record yet but one that hardly soft-pedals her softer side. Carrie isn't an unapologetic spitfire like her "Something Bad" duet partner Miranda Lambert. She is, as she says in her album title, a Storyteller, and there's an unmistakable distance between her theatrics and the subjects of her tunes; she isn't living these songs, she's performing them. Like a skilled actor, Underwood chooses her roles wisely --- she's comfortable swaggering through the leadoff pair of "Renegade Runaway" and "Dirty Laundry," while she eases into the comforting melancholy of "The Girl You Think I Am" --- and she knows how to deliver the essence of each song, modulating her performances not only so they match the grand productions of Jay Joyce, Mark Bright, and Zach Crowell but so they always are the focal point. That's no small feat and Storyteller is no small album: it demands attention and it deserves it, too. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Carrie Underwood – Some Hearts (2005) [Country, AcousticSounds, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Grammy-winning American Idol champ's 1985 album debut

Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood got Nashville's attention in an unusual way --- by winning the TV talent show American Idol --- but her 2005 debut is state-of-the-art mainstream Music City product.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, writes Country Weekly, not when it's this vibrant, heartfelt and energetic. A belter in the Martina McBride mold, Carrie wisely chose songs appropriate to her age (then 22), focusing on stories of young people leaving home to chase their dreams and make their own mistakes. She makes a few of those mistakes here, but by and large Some Hearts is a heartening debut.

Anyone who predicted that Carrie Underwood's second album would start with a sugary radio song might be surprised by the sultry, sassy, country-rocking "Flat On The Floor." But not to worry, pop fans --- "All-American Girl" is a soaring, triumphant song that sounds like a hot hit, fresh off Music City's grill, and the moving and romantic "Wheel of the World" is chick-flick soundtrack friendly. As a singer (and co-writer of three songs), Underwood really comes into her own onCarnival Ride, reminding country music fans why she was the first countrified American Idol and usurper of Faith Hill's throne.
