Golden [Deluxe Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Lady Antebellum's heart and soul belong to Nashville, the place where dreams are packaged, polished, and sold. The trio, led equally by vocalists Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley, and rounded out by by jack-of-all-trades instrumentalist Dave Haywood, are designed to appeal to the largest possible audience and, as such, they're smart enough to not mess with a winning formula, choosing only to sweeten it on their fourth album, Golden. Like the other three (along with their 2012 holiday stopgap On This Winter's Night), Golden is produced by Paul Worley, a longtime Music City fixture who truly made his reputation producing Dixie Chicks, but there's no hint of the ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Lady Antebellum's heart and soul belong to Nashville, the place where dreams are packaged, polished, and sold. The trio, led equally by vocalists Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley, and rounded out by by jack-of-all-trades instrumentalist Dave Haywood, are designed to appeal to the largest possible audience and, as such, they're smart enough to not mess with a winning formula, choosing only to sweeten it on their fourth album, Golden. Like the other three (along with their 2012 holiday stopgap On This Winter's Night), Golden is produced by Paul Worley, a longtime Music City fixture who truly made his reputation producing Dixie Chicks, but there's no hint of the rowdiness that punctuated even the Chicks' glossiest work. Instead, this is all shimmering and slick, more of an adult contemporary pop album than a country record. Apart from the intro of "Get to Me," there's nary a hint of twang here, the tempos never escalate -- the sprightliest number is the bouncy, effervescent "Downtown"; the most insistent is the rocking "Better Off Now (That You're Gone)," whose loudness fades once the verse kicks in -- and the whole vibe is irrepressibly friendly, best heard on quietly insistent pieces of pop like "Can't Stand the Rain." So cheerful is Golden that it seems a little churlish to complain that the songs here aren't grabbers: they're slow burns, designed to sink into the subconscious through repeated plays on radio, in-store sound systems, waiting rooms, and bumper music. And that's fine: it's professional product at its finest, meticulously assembled, polished until it gleams, designed to be nothing more than thoroughly agreeable. [The Deluxe Edition of Lady Antebellum's 2013 blockbuster Golden is expanded with three new songs and three live performances. The most noteworthy of the new songs is "Compass," which contains a bit of Lumineers' big-footed folk stomp, but "And The Radio Played" is a nice bit of '80s adult contemporary nostalgia and "Life As We Know It" is another sweet ballad that could easily slip onto the radio. The live songs are all acoustic revisions of the group's big hits—including the breakthrough "Need You Now"—each of which is even softer than the original.]
