Barnes & Noble
Country hit makers Diamond Rio follow up their gold-certified album One More Day with Completely, which encompasses the group's diverse musical leanings and includes the single "Beautiful Mess." The set ranges from pop ballads ("Big Ol' Fire") to honky-tonk ("If You'd Like Some Lovin' ") to uplifting message tunes in the vein of the band's post-9/11 hit "One More Day" ("We All Fall Down," "I Believe").

All Music Guide - Rick Cohoon
The material on Completely by Diamond Rio has two powerful qualities behind it: individuality and positive outlook. With artists as well anchored in the business as Diamond Rio, the musical quality is a given. The real challenge is outdoing yourself and coming up with fresh concepts. The selections on this album seem to be the fruition of that search for musical renewal with unique cuts such as "Wrinkles," co-written by Ronny Scaife and Neil Thrasher. The age-conscious will find this song especially appealing with its fun, hopeful message. Even the pain of "I Believe" is alleviated with spiritual guidance, while "You'll Find Me" reunites a husband and wife on the verge of good-bye. On the instrumental side, Diamond Rio offers "Rural Philharmonic," a fast-paced composition by group member Jimmy Olander. If that Diamond Rio harmony is what you're after, it's here too and is especially powerful on the oxymoronic "Beautiful Mess," though it overpowers some of the lyrics in "The Box." On the whole, Completely marks another musical revival for Diamond Rio.

    Now Hear This

    This album is pretty solid. It has a lot of variety and wonderful song selections. ''Beatiful Mess'' is one of the best songs of this summer. It should be followed by ''We All Fall Down''. That song touches home. I played it too some friends and it seems to reach them the way it does me. There's a song called ''The Box'' on the album. At first I wasn't sure about it but when it hit that chorus it became an instant favorite. A definite add to the cd collection.

    Finally!!!

    If the song ''Beautiful Mess'' is any indication of what is to come on this CD then I am predicting that this is going to be their best selling CD yet. One More Day is a hard act to follow but I'm confident these extremely talented guys will shine once again.
