Daisy in her hair aside, Carrie Underwood looks flat-out glamorous on the cover of PLAY ON, which is a pretty fair indication of what awaits listeners on her third album. Carrie is still nominally a country artist and sometimes will sing supported by fiddles and steel guitar, but this is crossover pop pure and simple, whether it's the thundering rhythms on the Shania-styled strut "Cowboy Casanova" or the succession of maudlin melodies on the preponderance of power ballads. Carrie takes a much stronger presence as a writer here, co-authoring seven of the 13 songs, and she's attracted to hookless showstoppers designed to showcase her powerful voice. When she sticks to tunes written solely by the professionals, PLAY ON does have some slick pleasures, particularly on the breezy "Quitter" and "This Time," songs built on solid melodies and delivered without flash, relying on craft and Carrie's considerable small-town charm.

      Verified Purchase

      Hi,I bought this CD for my GF however I enjoy country and female artists myself. I really enjoy her popular hit "Cowboy Casanova" however I really didn't enjoy where she was going with this album, she tries different vocal techniques which is cool but isn't smooth on transitions. I think this CD lacks the hits and bores with the slow ballads, which I enjoy on occasion, but has too many and found myself switching between songs frequently trying to find something catchy. This CD is "eh" for me but I will rate as good as she does have talent.
