All Music Guide - Thom Owens
Deana Carter's debut album ,Did I Shave My Legs for This?, was a surprise hit, considering that its grace, subtlety, and wit were largely qualities unheard of in contemporary country in 1996, the year it climbed up the charts. It immediately marked her as a major artist, placing great expectations on her second album, Everything's Gonna Be Alright. Lacking the surprise element of Legs, Everything's is nevertheless in many ways its equal, since Carter has chosen to expand its sound, not to replicate it. There are more laid-back rock and pop elements to her style this time around, which fits well with her folky, melodic country. Even the presence of Lynyrd Skynyrd as the ...

There are more laid-back rock and pop elements to her style this time around, which fits well with her folky, melodic country. Even the presence of Lynyrd Skynyrd as the support band for "The Train Song" earthy, not rowdy, works better than it reads. Furthermore, her songwriting is melodic and memorable, and her choice of covers, including Melanie's "Brand New Key," is inspired. As long as Carter continues to deliver albums as enchanting as Everything's Gonna Be Alright, things are going to be just fine for her and her fans.

    A brilliant second album

    ''Everthing's gonna be alright'' is an excellent second album. Both the lyrical and music style vary much more than in the first album. The first track has a rocky feel to it and ''Never Comin' Down'' carries a funky sound. The title track - ''Everthing's gonna be alright'' is a beatuful song. While her first album had brilliant tunes Deana's second is truly a masterpiece able to rival the first in originalty and variation. She has expanded country territory succesfully.

    Good sophomore LP couldn┬┐t light up the charts

    Just how do you follow-up the multi-platinum success of your debut album? It 's a difficult task, and it's unclear whether Carter couldn't come up with an answer, or whether the market had simply moved on by the time her sophomore album was released. Like the debut, Carter's second album finds a comfortable middle ground between treacly ballads that should satisfy the Top-40 and rootsier mid- and up-tempo numbers that draw more directly on her stated influences. Unfortunately, as artistically successful as this may be, it couldn't find the same commercial momentum as her the debut. <br><br> Carter revisits the successful pen of Matraca Berg (whose autobiographical lyrics fueled the runaway hit, ''Strawberry Wine'') for two fine story portraits, ''Ruby Brown'' and ''Dickson County.'' Both make for excellent album tracks, but neither has the lyrical hooks to climb the singles charts. <br><br> Other high-quality contributions include the mid-tempo ''Angels Working Overtime'' and the blue ''Make Up Your Mind.'' The inability of these and other tracks to crack the singles charts suggests that Carters debut success was more a commercial fluke than a market endorsement of the album's quality. A couple of years later on, an album with similar integrity simply couldn't break through. This is surprising, given the built-in audience that the debut had waiting. <br><br> Even Carter's own contributions, including the ballads ''Absence of the Heart,'' ''Everything's Gonna Be Alright,'' mid-tempo, ''Michaelangelo Sky,'' ''Never Comin' Down,'' and the rock 'n' rollin' ''The Train Song'' couldn't find a mass commercial audience. <br><br> Though the quality of this LP shows Carter to be a lot deeper than a one-hit wonder, the lack of commercial resonance suggests her work may never again achieve the sort of broad popularity as her debut. With her contract at Capitol ended, the smaller scale release of her Christmas album on Rounder may mark a more fruitful artistic path. <br><br> 3-1/2 stars, if bn.com allowed fractional ratings.

    Buyer beware: You're in for a scare!

    This cd is a train wreck from begining to end, with only a couple smooth patches along the way. Outside of Michelangelo Sky and Absence of the Heart, this album really is horrific to listen to. Don't get me wrong, I love when country singers expand their territory, because that allows for new ground to be explored. However, Deana Carter's follow up cd is nowhere as close to being as good of a disc as her debut was. Take caution before purchasing, its your money!
