All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The whole of Kellie Pickler's professional career rests upon the notion that she's the goofy girl next door. Her cornpone cornball shtick pushed her through American Idol and gave her a minor hit record, which was enough of a foundation to build a sturdy, albeit unflashy, career upon. So what do Kellie and company do for her self-titled second album? Chuck all that out the window by corseting her cornball humor into an immaculately tailored straitjacket, burying her voice in the mix, cutting away the country in favor of a manicured crossover pop. Her limitations as vocalist are most acutely felt on big diva ballads like "Somebody to Love Me," where she is ...

Her limitations as vocalist are most acutely felt on big diva ballads like "Somebody to Love Me," where she is dwarfed by the scale of the song and the arrangement, but the high gloss of the production also obscures whatever charms such sprightly pop as "Makin' Me Fall in Love Again" might have had, because the hooks are in the vocal melody and Pickler has been pushed into the background. On her debut, this awkwardness was used to her advantage, as the producers picked the right set of songs for her, songs that fit both her skills and back story, but she's gone from singing about "Red High Heels" to riding the Jimmy Choo shoe train at Saks Fifth Avenue as if she was trying to step into Jennifer Hudson's subordinate role in the Sex & the City movie.

    Phenomenal album, phenomenal voice.

    Kellie Pickler's sophomore album quite literally makes her humble yet poignant debut look like chopped liver. Two years, hundreds of concerts, and 1 remarkable album later, Pickler is headed for the big time.<BR/>The album begins with a catchy number. "Don't You Know You're Beautiful". While arguably the weakest track on the album, it still sends a powerful message to every listener. You can't possibly finish listening without feeling good about yourself. The following track, "I'm Your Woman", is a Shania-twain, pop-country territory song. Kellie sounds very convincing and her voice is about as sweet as honey. "Rocks Instead of Rice" is a pretty flawless cutesy country song. Pickler jokingly chants she'd rather throw "Rocks" at the newly weds than rice. A purely enjoyable number. The next track, "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You" may look familiar, that's because it appeared on Pickler's debut - Small Town Girl -however, the overproduced version from Small Town Girl pales in comparison to the beautiful instrumental breaks and stronger vocals on the new album. Number 5, "Lucky Girl" is a track originally recorded by Catherine Britt. I tend to prefer Pickler's version, due to the schmaltzy elegance of her natural twang. She pulls it off again, yet another brilliant track. "One Last Time" is just flawless. Pickler's voice sounds about as pure as possible during the verses, and soars into an impeccable chorus. I am not sure that any of the other country blondes who are popular on the charts right now could pull off such a smooth transition. "Best Days of Your Life" was written by Pickler and Taylor Swift during a tour with Brad Paisley. The song is a fun, and insanely catchy, upbeat number that has been set for the second single. It will hopefully be Pickler's first top ten hit on country radio. "Somebody To Love Me", a heart wrenching ballad, comes straight from Pickler. She describes the said period as one of the darkest in her lifetime. A beautiful, well sung vocal. "Makin' Me Fall In Love Again" is probably a buffer for the dark and solemn songs previous. It's not a standout track, but purely enjoyable. "Going Out In Style" is reminiscent of a Pickler track from her previous album, "One Of The Guys". It's purely Kellie, with plenty of name drops and fun vocals.<BR/>With an impressively standout country cd like this, it would be madness for Pickler not to catch the ear of avid fans and new listeners.<BR/><BR/>5 stars!

    Great but don't know what others are talking about!

    She is amazing and who ever says that they bought all her CD's and really doesn't like her well this is what I have to say to you; If you don't like her then why did you buy her CD's. The other thing is she does yes sound like taylor Swift but look at all the other performers out there all the new females sound the same!!! But this CD is great I love her voice and how it is unlike most singers her voice is true.
